Love’s Little Journey

This past weekend, we celebrated our first birthday by throwing a party for you. It’s because of you that more than 4000 dogs and cats like these, who traveled last week, are safe now.

Thank you–good job!

Thank you, BARC!

Rescued Pets Movement had a great time at BARC’s Fixin’ Houston Launch Party last Thursday. RPM is so proud to be BARC’s rescue partner, and we thank them for all the hard work and extra miles they put in for Houston’s homeless pets. We had so much fun Thursday night and we’re glad much needed money was raised for such an important cause!

Thank you, Grace School!

imageRescued Pets Movement was pleased to be chosen as Grace School’s 4th grade Make a Difference Day service project. The students collected and donated 211 collars for RPM to use for identification of the dogs we transport to Colorado. RPM’s Laura Carlock met with the students to accept their generous donation and talk with them about animal rescue and ways they can make a difference. Of her Grace School experience Laura said, “It was such a pleasure spending time with this wonderful group of children at the Grace School and answer their questions about RPM. Their donation of 211 dog and cat collars was so generous, and it is heartwarming to see the next generation already getting involved in caring for Houston’s homeless pets. I welcome other schools to join the movement!”

Once again, team work means success!

Meet Mona Lisa and Buddy, two dogs who’ll find their homes in Colorado thanks to the combined efforts of RPM and Homeless Pet Placement League. Here’s what HPPL President Debby Ryan shared:

These two wonderful dogs came into BARC in horrible shape, so our friends at RPM agreed to take them. And of course, HPPL agreed to help underwrite medical care. Mona Lisa had her ear completely ripped from her head and a bulging eye; both likely as a result of inhumane treatment. But she’s a cutie now with one ear up and an ear flap on the other side. Her whole body wags to say thank you. Buddy boy was found with a fractured femur, tibia and pelvis. To add insult to injury, he had mange! With a great surgeon and a terrific RPM foster mom, he overcame his injuries in fine fashion. We know they made it safely to Colorado last Friday and now we are waiting to hear who opens their hearts and homes to these sweeties. HPPL was founded to provide life saving medical care to animals. Proof positive with these two …not to mention another opportunity for two Houston animal organizations to come together and make a difference. Are you smiling!

Finding Home

Thanks to everyone, RPM moved over 400 dogs and cats to their new homes Colorado in October! Here are the lucky ones who finished out the month last week.

We couldn’t do it without all of you! We’d love to have more fosters to save even more lives, so please share the news about this partnership between RPM, BARC, and our Colorado rescuers. Fosters are the backbone of RPM’s success because dogs and cats thrive in homes. You keep them happy and healthy before they travel, and our donors, transporters, drivers, and other volunteers keep everything moving. Thank you so much!

Another success story: Rodney

Here’s an update from our friends at Houston’s Homeless Pet Placement League:

Meet Rodney, calm as can be, before boarding the van and riding to his forever home in Colorado. Once again HPPL and Rescued Pets Movement have partnered to save a great animal. Rodney came to BARC with two fractures, leg and hip. BARC reached out to RPM and RPM reached out to HPPL. As a result of all parties working together, this sweet dog had surgery, received plenty of love and care in his RPM foster home and after his “trip to the Rockies” met his adopter last weekend. We hope you never tire of these heartwarming stories of team work resulting in lots of smiles because HPPL has more coming up in the next few weeks.

This is what happens when rescue groups work together, and we’re proud of our partnership with HPPL.
