Have you joined Team RPM in the 2016 Saving Pets Challenge yet? NOW is the time to do it! I just got word that all donations to Rescued Pets Movement’s Saving Pets Challenge from 12 pm CT today (7/9/2016) until 1:30 pm CT on Tuesday (7/12/2016) will not only be matched, but DOUBLED (up to $15,000). Guys, this is a serious donor who wants RPM to win the first mini-challenge. It does not matter to which team member the donation is made, ALL donations during this time period WILL BE DOUBLED. Please join our team and start fundraising, or really ramp up your fundraising!

We’re super excited to let you know that Rescued Pets Movement is part of an amazing campaign called the Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge, a friendly fundraising competition where organizations focused on reducing shelter euthanasia compete to raise the most money for their cause.
We’re looking for our supporters to give as much as they can so we can win the grand prize. And to help, each week, there are Bonus Challenges with opportunities to raise more and win extra cash for our cause. The first one starts right now! If we raise the most between July 5th at 12pm ET and July 12th at 1:59:59pm ET, we’ll receive a $10,000 donation. That extra $10,000 would be so huge for us.
We have titled our team page as Rescued Pets Movement’s Campaign to Save 2,665 Death-Row Dogs & Cats! That is how many homeless pets RPM can save and transport to safety if we reach our $150,000 fundraising goal and win the $50,000 grand prize. The top raising organization will receive a $50,000 donation. Second through fifth place will also win large cash donations.
If you want to go a step farther and join our fundraising team, that would be even more amazing. Just visit the link above and click the “Fundraise for this Campaign” button to become a part of our team. Imagine the money we could raise together if you reached out to your network.
We love sharing the photos of all the pets you’ve helped save by transporting and fostering them. Below are the dogs and cats who traveled in June, and here’s something to think about. Whenever you take one of RPM’s dogs or cats from BARC, you’re saving two. Because of that empty kennel, another Houston animal gets a space and a chance to be adopted or pulled by a rescue group. THANK YOU!
Take a look at the dogs and cats who rolled out of here the first week of June.
The next week, this lucky group was able to travel to their forever homes. That’s because of all the people who were willing to give them rides or open their homes to them. Did you know that if you want your dogs to come out of BARC cleaner and fresher-smelling, you can bathe them at one of BARC’s shampoo stations before you leave? Ask our foster coordinators about reserving a time for you if you’re interested in this.
Here are the dogs and cats who traveled on June’s third transport. All the animals in RPM’s program benefit from a full medical team experienced in shelter medicine. These fantastic dogs and cats may not come from the best circumstances, but BARC vets, our outside vet consultants, and RPM’s medical staff work diligently to address the particular issues and needs of stray, neglected, and abused animals.
It was beautiful weather on the fourth transport of the month–if you like it hot and humid! It’s hard not to envy these dogs and cats who get to live in gorgeous Colorado, especially those who’ll enjoy outdoor activities with their new families. Look through our Success Stories to see some of the dogs who are experiencing the great outdoors!
June may have only thirty days, but they fell in a way that allowed us to have a fifth transport. We always love a chance to get more dogs and cats on the road to their new homes!
We appreciate everyone who fosters as frequently and for as long as they can even though school’s out, vacations are planned, and there are holidays beginning and ending the summer as well as mid-summer’s Independence Day. We’re grateful for our fosters, transporters, donors, volunteers, and staff who keep giving these dogs and cats their chance at better lives. Have a safe and happy Fourth, and please remember that because of fireworks and increased outdoor activities, this is the day more pets go missing than any other. Keep them safely inside, away from the noise and commotion. Thank you to everyone who’s part of Team RPM!
