Love and Happiness

Here are the dogs and cats who traveled safely to their new homes in Colorado last week. Thank you to all the fosters, transporters, donors, and other volunteers who took such good care of them.

We appreciate all that you and our Colorado partners do to save Houston’s pets. Thank you!

Paw and Order!

We want to thank Houston’s independent bookstore Murder By The Book and mystery writer Spencer Quinn for making RPM the beneficiary of a percentage of booksales at an event on Monday night. A thunderstorm (and even a brief power outage or two) provided just the right atmosphere to talk about Quinn’s mystery series featuring PI Bernie Little and his partner, Chet–who just happens to be a dog. Paw and Order is the seventh in the series, and we’re pretty sure that Chet–a dog who came from the mean streets then flunked out of police school before finding his true calling as a detective–would be delighted to know he’s helping Houston’s dogs (and yes, even some cats) find new forever homes where their talents can be appreciated, too.

Success Story Sunday: Penny.

Penny was a Length of Stay dog at BARC. The term “length of stay” or LOS means that a dog has reached the end of their time at a shelter. Everything had been done to try to find a family for her and she was about to be put to sleep to make room for a new dog. RPM moved Penny out of BARC when we saw her on the LOS list and got her out in the nick of time. Eventually, we found the perfect adopter for her. Jon lives in Moab, Utah, and drove over five hours to meet Penny when she finally arrived in Denver. Not long after their meeting we received the following note and the above photos.

Hi Cindy,
Words cant express how pleased I am, thoughts of how this all came together for me….. and Penny brings a tear to my eye!
Penny is way more than I expected! Here are a few photo’s of Thursday on the creek with us, she has also been to the dog park and did very well! (super stoked!!) I really want to thank you all for everything you have done for us! Your work has definitely paid off with this sweet little puppy!
I’ll send more pix soon!
