Rescued Pets Movement

Each week, Rescued Pets Movement saves hundreds of animals from area shelters, often from the euthansia list and has saved nearly 87,000 lives since our founding in 2013. With your help, RPM makes new beginnings possible for homeless pets throughout Houston and surrounding areas. Donate today to help us continue our life-saving work!

How Rescued Pets Movement Works

Each year, tens of thousands of animals enter Houston area shelters. With most all animal shelters and other animal welfare organizations operating at capacity (and often overcapacity), RPM has been critical in dramatically reducing the number of animals euthanized each year at BARC (Houston’s City Shelter) and other area shelters by transporting thousands of homeless animals to other areas of the US where there is a demand for them.

Rescued Pets Movement works every day to impact the lives of countless cats and dogs. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in September 2023!

Rescued Pets Movement Provides
Love, Transport, and Second Chances.

Rescued Pets Movement gives homeless pets a second chance at life by, sometimes literally, pulling them from death row from area shelters. Once saved and in loving short-term foster homes, these pets receive the crucial rehabilitation and medical care they need and often lacked while they were on the streets. We have partnered with reputable animal welfare organizations in areas across the United States where there is a high demand for adoptable pets and then transport these pets to our partners and to their forever homes.
What Rescued Pets Movement Does

Our model is simple – The Greater Houston Metropolitan area has a very high number of homeless pets needing homes. Sadly, there just are not enough homes here for all of the homeless animals in need. We rescue Houston’s homeless animals from the shelters here and send them to other parts of the US where there are lots of people wanting to adopt homeless animals like the ones we have right here in Houston. And it works! We drove over 1 million miles in 2020 alone, to bring homeless pets to their forever homes in places like Colorado and Virginia, and with your donation, we can continue our amazing, lifesaving work.

Why I Foster…

We started fostering after our personal pets all passed as we hope to travel extensively. Fostering fills the void when we are home and our goal is to fill them with love before their journey. It’s always hard to let go but the posts from other fosters make you know that you are not alone. Plus, there’s always another to help. RPM has made such a difference for Houston area animals. I always feel supported and heard.”
