We didn’t forget the dogs who left for their new homes last week–just in time for Christmas!–and we know you won’t either. What a great bunch they are.
From RPM to all of you, have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve and Day. Thank you again so much for making 2014 an extraordinary year. Let’s do it again, even better!
Because of all the encouragement offered, donations made, volunteer hours worked, dogs and cats locally transported, hours worked around the clock, funds raised, vans driven, posts liked, tweets retweeted, and over 4500 dogs and cats fostered, Rescued Pets Movement considers each and every one of you who has ever helped us in some way to be the most treasured gift we could ever receive. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Their advocates, fosters, transporters, donors, drivers, and rescuers got them out, and RPM got them on the road to their forever homes. Here are the dogs and cats you saved last week.
On behalf of all of these dogs and cats, we wish you a joyous holiday season. Even as our drivers are on the road to Colorado with yet another group, we’re pulling pets for our upcoming transports after the new year. We’ll keep working toward our goals: No Puppy Left Behind and Save Them All! Thank you for a great year.
Rescued Pets Movement is excited to announce that Houston Rockets owner, Leslie Alexander, has donated the funds necessary for us to build out our foster care clinic. Mr. Alexander is well known for his generous support of animal causes throughout Houston and the nation, and RPM is honored that he has chosen to support RPM and its mission to save thousands of Houston’s homeless pets. Thank you, Mr. Alexander, for allowing us to honor your father with the “Jack C. Alexander RPM Building,” scheduled to open at the beginning of 2015.
In our last post containing photos of the dogs who were moved from Houston toward homes last week, the first dog you’ll see is Babe. Every RPM dog and cat has a compelling story, and this is part of Babe’s as shared by our friends at Houston’s Homeless Pet Placement League:
In this season of giving, HPPL is proud to have been a part of giving a tiny girl a chance. Babe arrived at BARC with a fractured pelvis, left femur and left hip. Our good friends at Rescued Pets Movement gave her the gift of life by pulling her and sending her for surgery. Anytime, RPM asks HPPL for assistance, we give it, so HPPL helped underwrite the costs of her surgeries. Her foster mom and dad gave her the gift of healing and love and the gift of sending her to a new place. Her transport driver gave her a safe ride and safe arms along the way. Then on Friday, nearly three months after she was brought in a “broken” dog, she was given the opportunity for adoption through a fabulous Colorado group called 4Paws. We are all sure Babe will be home for Christmas thanks to the efforts and teamwork of so many wonderful people. Tis the season to be jolly:)
Thank you to HPPL, Babe’s foster parents in Texas and Colorado, and all the staff from BARC, the vets, Colorado rescue, and RPM who shepherded Babe through the system to a new and beautiful life.
It was a great day to travel last week, and here’s who enjoyed the journey!
Every week so many of you come and go, either to bring your fosters, to transport dogs from other locations, or to help organize the transport and clean up the clinic. We know many of you can’t stay long enough to get in the group photo, but here are a few of those who represent all of you who do so much for the dogs and cats of RPM. You’re saving lives! Thank you.
