Sweet little Benny was moved to an adopter in Colorado and became Ollie. He also became loved and adored full time. As you can see from the above photo, being loved so much is exhausting! But obviously worth it. We received the below note about Ollie not too long ago and we’re happy to share it.
Hello to you all!
I just wanted to pass along this pic of Ollie kicking back after some play
time. He’s an amazing dog that makes us smile every single day! Thank you
all again for making it possible for Ollie to become a huge part of our
Please join us at Murder by the Book where Spencer Quinn will sign and discuss PAW AND ORDER (Atria Books, $25), his latest book featuring Chet, a lovable canine narrator, and Bernie, a down on his luck private investigator. Murder by the Book will donate 10% of book sales to RPM, so please stop by and buy copies for you and your dog loving, mystery reading friends!
We’d like to offer a HUGE thank you to Homeless Pet Placement League for partnering with us to save Happy and for helping cover some of the cost of his surgery. HPPL board president Debby Ryan recently described Happy as “a great dog and one that personifies the best in RPM and HPPL’s partnership.” We absolutely agree!
After Happy was moved out of BARC his fosters noticed a protruding hip bone and that he walked with a noticeable limp, which Dr. Mandola at Richmond Animal Hospital later diagnosed as a dislocated hip. He operated on Happy’s hip and everything was great after that! Happy’s fosters, Jackie and Larry, told us that even though “he continued to favor his hind leg, he ate well and still wanted to play with our two big dogs. He also loved chewing on bones and playing with his squeaky toys. Happy loved everyone and loved when we would cuddle with him.
“We are so appreciate of everyone who has helped and loved this puppy on his journey from homelessness to healing to his forever home. It is so incredibly rewarding for us to know that we had a small part of giving him a great life.”
A few days ago, we were all happy when Larry brought Happy so he could join the rest of the adoptable pets in the vans going to our Colorado rescue partners.
Thank you, Jackie, Larry, Dr. Mandola, HPPL, and everyone who donates to RPM and enables us to give Happy and other dogs and cats a second chance at life.
Here’s who traveled to Colorado last week because you were generous enough to provide foster homes, transportation, and donations to help save their lives.
You’ve been answering our calls to save even more every day. Thank you for all you do. We have the best volunteers, donors, and helpers!
Benny was an RPM adoption dog who was found running the streets of Houston. We enrolled him in our adoption program, took him to one of our partner veterinarians, and did our best to show him that some people know how to love and care for a dog. Benny liked that very much! A family in Colorado expressed an interest in him, so we moved Benny north to meet them. We received the following note and the above photo from his adopter:

Support Rescued Pets Movement in Best Friends’ Strut Your Mutt
(you can join the team or just donate)
On the morning of Saturday, September 20, a crazy team of RPM pet lovers will converge upon TC Jester Park to strut our mutts (or just our stuff). Best Friends’ Strut Your Mutt event is a fun-filled day that includes a fun walk or run, booths of all things four legged, and friends! RPM has formed a team, and we want you on it.
Our fundraising goal is $25,000, which is the highest goal in the City, and of course, we want to be the biggest fundraising group in Houston. (We are a competitive bunch!) We started this morning in 27th place (out of 28 teams) and quickly rose to 6th place. The top two teams have been going at this a lot longer than we have and are both almost at their goals of $15,000. With your help, we can blow them out of the water. Hey, there is nothing wrong with a little healthy competition among friends, especially when it is for the animals!
Please join our team as a team member by clicking HERE and “Join This Team.” You don’t have to attend the event to be a team member; you can arm-chair fundraise all the way. If you don’t want to join the team, but want to support us with a donation, please click HERE and “Support Us.” 100% of the donations RPM raises through our team goes to RPM and the formerly homeless dogs and cats in our program.
Won’t you help us? As an added bonus, one of our board members has committed to donate $25 to the fundraising goal of each team member who signs up. RPM has already made her broke, and you can help make her broke-er.
Let the healthy competition begin!
