Holly, Ellie’s mom, wrote to us and said, “Ellie, who is nine years old and in the 4th Grade, had to coordinate a community service project in accordance with her Gifted & Talented curriculum. She knew she wanted to focus on animals. We knew about RPM through our friend and RPM board member, Katie Beirne, and I urged her to be a bit more hands-on/grassroots vs. a shift at a bake sale type event.”
Ellie said, “I learned that there are animals killed everyday in Houston because they don’t have homes for them here. These dogs and cats can go to other states, like Colorado, that have families that want them. A lot of work goes into finding them a home.”
And we say that Ellie is a smart and compassionate person who is a friend to dogs and cats everywhere. We’re lucky to have her as a part of our community. Keep up the good work, and thank you for sending us the photo!
Thursday was the perfect day for fifty more dogs to head toward their new forever homes in Colorado. Here they are:
Just a few of the people helping with today’s transport–part of a much larger group of donors, fosters, boarders, vets, transporters, BARC staff, and vet staff who make RPM’s successes possible. We couldn’t save these lives without your help!
Safe journey, Mike, to you and your fifty companions on the road.
We will meet for the transport this Thursday morning at 9 AM at Abbott Animal Clinic off 1960 and Ella. The address is 17006 Sugar Pine Dr., Houston, TX. 77090. Traffic can be a big bear so please allow extra time to get there. We have to be out the door as fast as possible to make sure we keep to our schedule and stay on time.
If you cannot meet us on Thursday at 9 AM and need to drop off your foster dogs either (1) Wednesday evening or (2) Thursday, early AM or (3) try and meet someone closer to you for a ride, please me asap, along with where you can possibly bring your foster (i.e. meet someone in the Heights, Pearland, Winrock, etc). We can also assist with pick up/transport. Just let us know what you need.
If you have any original vet records or medication (or anything else you want to send along), please be sure to send along with them. The dogs cannot travel without complete vet records.
A HUGE THANK YOU, THANK YOU to each of you for fostering! We know it’s a very tough job and we couldn’t do it without you!!
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!!!
Was notified about the above video today. It’s from our Media Launch Day and accompanies this article from the City of Houston News Department: New BARC programs bite away at problems. Be sure to also read A Forever Home for Jonah — aka Webster written by Dana Randolph, a ten year old girl who adopted Jonah, an RPM dog.
We awoke to heavy rains in Houston on Thursday morning, but when it was time to load 60 dogs for their journey to Colorado, the rain stopped and it was warm enough that the puppies weren’t shivering. They may get a bit of a surprise with Colorado’s weather, but inside their new foster and forever homes, they’ll be snug and warm. Here are some of the faces and names who are on their way to their new lives.
With the help of some mama dogs, RPM continues its mission to Leave No Puppy Behind!
Safe journey to driver Mike and all these sweet lives who’ve been saved thanks to BARC, along with help from RPM volunteers, fosters, transporters, donors, and board members, as well as our tireless affiliates in Colorado.
A.D.O.R.E. sponsored this transport and so can you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how. Thank you, A.D.O.R.E.
