April Love at RPM

April Love

The second week of April, our Wisconsin rescue partner arrived with their van to pick up this group.

Though Elliot and Matthew were too shy to get their photos taken, we know they were also happy to be in the care of our friends from Wisconsin. Not only is HFAH helping save Houston’s homeless dogs, but they always arrive with big donations of towels, blankets, and other linens to provide comfort to all our travelers, no matter which state they’re going to. It’s great being part of this team with them!

When we say Team RPM, that includes a LOT of people, from the rescue groups we work with in Houston to the ones in Colorado, Wisconsin, and Canada. We provide temporary homes and medical assistance while the dogs and cats are in Houston thanks to our fosters and medical partners, then through our transport program, connect our amazing fosters, volunteers, transporters, and donors to these pets’ futures. Thank you to everyone who’s part of this movement, and thank you for your patience as we restructure and revamp our clinic.

Success Story Sunday- Lucy

Success Story Sunday – Lucy (fka Scar)

Lucy (formerly Scar) was a cruelty case from BARC, and she was in horrible shape when she came to RPM. She spent ages at the vet as they stabilized her, and then another two months in foster care before being ready to go to a forever home. She nearly tripled her body weight and regrew a beautiful coat over her months of RPM care. At 10 years old, she’d lived a life full of cruelty and neglect, but somehow still maintained a beautiful personality. Her foster was amazed at how boldly she investigated her new home, and how trusting and sweet she still was! She’s a friendly and loving kitty, bold and curious about her surrounding and other animals, and loves toys and cuddles. We’re thrilled that she has found a forever family right here in Houston that will spoil and provide Lucy with the life that she so deserves.

Success Story Sunday- Family Reunion

Success Story Sunday – Family Reunion

Some time ago, RPM transported a older, pregnant momma to one of our partner rescues in Colorado. She had her puppies, and all were adopted into different, but happy and loving homes. Recently, several of the adopters arranged to get-together and have a big family reunion!! Momma Teresa and a few of the siblings weren’t able to make it, but five pups did! All had a wonderful and special puppy play date.

For those of us on the Houston side, it can be scary to send these cats and dogs so far away, but they have such great lives waiting for them! Special and fun things like this are so great to see. Our partner rescues find loving homes and awesome lives for these animals that never would have had a chance here in Texas.

Family Reunion
