Calvin came to RPM with a terribly broken leg; he was unable to walk, but maintained a beautiful spirit and a sweet disposition that won everybody over. We were able to work with one of our Colorado rescue partners (and wonderful fosters in both Houston and Colorado) to get Calvin the medical attention that he needed, and we’re so happy to share how far he has come! He’s improving every day, walking well and loving the Colorado winter! We love happy endings like Calvin’s!
Roxy was adopted to her forever home in March, and is loving life with her new family and doggy brother, Bode. From his forever mom, Dawn:
“Roxy was the first dog I met in my volunteer position. She’d come in on the same day and was in the same condo as our boxer that we’d adopted one year before!! I fell in love with her as soon as she crawled into my lap… We scooped her up immediately and brought her home to meet her “brother” Bode the bronze boxer. They hit it off right away. The two of them sleep on top of each other and on top of us every night.
She’s a wonderful soulful girl. We love her deeply and have enjoyed her bull dogness.”
We’re thrilled to report that Lucy is settling comfortably into her new home in Colorado! As an energetic dog, she found the perfect active family! One of her daddies is a ski instructor, and Lucy is loving the time on the mountain!
We love when these active dogs find families that can keep up with them! Enjoy the mountains, Lucy!
Last spring, Iko was found living under a bridge in Houston with a momma dog and her puppies. He was a sweet guy, but in terrible shape. He was heartworm positive, covered in mange, and very sick. We started treatment here in Houston, and his forever mom, Becki, has continued his treatment in Colorado. We’re happy to report that Iko is happy, healthy, and his strength is improving every day! He’s a true Colorado dog, with cross-country skiing and hiking being two of his very favorite activities.
Thank you Becki for giving Iko such a wonderful, nurturing home!
More often we begin a new year looking forward instead of back. In this case, however, it’s great to remember all the dogs and cats whose lives were saved in December so they could have brilliant futures.
This group traveled on our first transport of December.
The group below traveled on our second transport of December.
We interrupted our regularly scheduled transports for a great new partnership with rescue in Canada. That’s right, the Toronto Five moved RPM international!
This was our next group to travel toward their forever homes in mid-December.
We’re lucky enough to have tireless rescue partners who enabled us to squeeze one more transport in before the Christmas holiday.
After all the gifts were opened and the ornaments were being packed away, RPM got back to business with our final transport of December!
What a great month to end an amazing year. We owe it all to our fosters, volunteers, transporters, vet partners, BARC, rescue partners, staff, fundraisers, and donors. Thank you all SO MUCH! Let’s make 2016 even better!
