Pride of the Caravan

Every week the numbers of dogs and cats saved thanks to our partnerships with BARC, our volunteers, fosters, and donors, and our Colorado rescuers break new records. We always celebrate these wonderful lives by remembering they are not only numbers. They have faces and names and so much love and loyalty to give to everyone who cares for them on each part of their journey. They inspire us!

Success Story Sunday – Basil

Oh what a difference a few months of love can make!! Last fall, Basil arrived at BARC in sad shape – he was extremely emaciated, weighing less than 30 pounds, and was battling a case of mange. RPM pulled him and sent him to one of our Colorado partners, and he’s hardly recognizable anymore! He happened across his forever family at the dog park and has since doubled in size. From his forever family:

“We met Basil while on a walk at Chatfield Dog Park and fell in love with him. He gradually grew and put on weight and now weighs a whopping 60 lbs and is very tall and sturdy. He brings much mischief and joy into our home and is a great doggy brother to our other adopted dog, Thor. Thank you so much for saving this dog and bringing him into our lives.”

We’re so happy that he found a loving family to nurture and help him grow into the dog that he is today!

Success Story Sunday – Riley (formerly Flora)

We have word that Riley (formerly Flora) is doing great in her forever home in Colorado!! Her new brother, Bear, is adjusting to sharing the attention, but they are becoming good friends. As a former Houstonite, Riley found the snow to be a little disorienting (“Where did everything go??”), but she enjoys playing in it when it isn’t too cold. She loves tennis balls, stuffed animals, and anything squeaky. She’s using the doggy door, working on house training, and her basic commands are improving. She already knows “no” and “come,” and is getting better at “sit.” It’s wonderful to hear that Riley is doing well, learning, and growing in her forever home!

Lucky Day

An RPM dog or cat knows you don’t have to be Irish to be lucky. You just need a team of volunteers, transporters, fosters, rescuers, vets, donors, and drivers to get you from bad luck at the pound to a forever home at the end of the rainbow. So last week, these dogs and cats didn’t mind a little rain as they caught their ride to Colorado.

Success Story Sunday – Nelson (formerly Channing)

We pull many heartworm positive dogs from BARC. It’s an easily curable illness, but costly and stigmatized. These dogs have less time at the shelter, and fewer foster and rescue opportunities once they are pulled. Luckily, we have friends like 4 Paws 4 Life! 4P4L has a wonderful program called Heart to Heart ( that specifically targets and prevents these dogs from falling through the cracks.

Nelson (formerly Channing) started heartworm treatment as soon as he was pulled from BARC and was accepted into the Heart to Heart program in Colorado. He was quickly adopted by Alicia, who is completing Nelson’s treatments with 4P4L’s help. From Alicia:

Channing (now Nelson) is doing great. When I adopted him he was heartworm positive, but he’s just wrapping up his treatment this week and is getting spunkier and healthier every day. We’ve mastered sit, down and his favorite: “sit like people.” He’s definitely a momma’s boy; loves cuddling, sitting on my lap and being brushed. We get stopped on the street all the time with people wanting to pet him and asking what he is…I’m still trying to figure that one out!

It’s great to hear that Nelson is recovering and happily settling into his new home. We’re so lucky to have such amazing partners up north that help us give scruffies like Nelson another chance at life!
