You are invited to our first adoption event and supply drive.


You are invited to Rescued Pets Movement Inc’s (RPM) first adoption event and supply drive. Please note that we are not an intake group; however, for various reasons, we have some dogs that are a part of our program that must be adopted out locally. Although most of the pets in our program are sent out of state, we’ll sometimes hold local adoption events for these pets. We think you will be excited and surprised by the extreme volume of rescued pets that we are saving, and we could not do this without your support. It would help us greatly if you have any of the items listed below to donate. And if you want to adopt any of the dogs we’ll have with us at The Corkscrew on November 2nd, that would help us, too!

The Corkscrew
1308 West 20th Street
Houston, TX

Saturday November 2
10am – 2 pm

Supply drive; Items needed
Collapsible Wire Kennels
Towels and dog bedding.
Puppy pads
Cat Carriers
Collars of all sizes
Zip ties
Bungee cords

Please feel free to print out the attached flier for distribution and to invite friends. We are looking forward to spreading the word about RPM. This is an exciting time for us–and especially exciting for so many homeless dogs and cats–so we hope you’ll stop by and say hello!

Thanks for helping us. We can’t do this without you. Together we can make Houston a no-kill city!

Temporary fosters needed for 6 dogs.

Last Friday BARC asked us to take some Length of Stay dogs that were set to be euthanized. These dogs (featured below) survived up to 55 days at BARC only to be scheduled for euthanasia. Taking a chance on raising enough money, we pulled them in the nick of time, but we need foster homes in Houston and Colorado for just 7 days and/or donations for their care. If you are interested in being a TEMPORARY foster, please contact us at

If you’d like to make a donation, no amount is too small! You can make a tax-deductible donation by credit card by going to and clicking the donate tab. If you’d prefer to donate by check, please make it out to “RPM Inc.” and mail it to us at

RPM Inc.
3139 W. Holcombe Blvd. #135
Houston, Texas 77025

Every cent of your donation will go toward transporting these well-deserving dogs or to the costs incurred for temporarily fostering a pet until he or she can be transported. Any excess funds we receive will automatically be applied to our next transport.

And if you can’t donate, don’t worry–just spread the word for us. That helps a lot.

Here are the dogs!

Beverly Beverly said, “Please, please save me!” Doesn’t she melt your heart? This girl is a hoot! She is about 2 years old and is 41 lbs. She is a chunky monkey and looks like a cinderblock with legs. She ran up and hugged us as soon as we got her out of BARC. She then does this silly crawl all over the place and just put on a show. She is so so sweet, very friendly and absolutely precious! She’ll definitely win Miss Congenality. She was listed as a boxer mix and she is built like a bulldog, so she’s probably that or maybe some pittie. All we know is that she’s a sweetheart.

Clark is precious! He’s about 1 year old and weighs just 23 lbs. He could use a sandwich or two. He’s a quiet, easy soul who just wants to be loved. He’s very gentle and easy, walks well on a leash, and stays right with you. He loves a bag of treats. He’s good with other dogs and should be a very easy. He’s quiet and sweet and we’re sure he was passed over by potential adopters every time because of it. He’s listed as a plot hound mix.

Draya is another skin and bones baby. She is about 3 years old and weights 36 lbs, but should probably weigh more like 50 lbs. She has the sweetest, most soulful eyes and will lean against you. She’s good with other dogs and didn’t even mind being bossed around by a big male chow mix. She even put up with our funny costumes. She walks well on a leash and is a very sweet dog. She’s listed as boxer mix, but looks more hound/lab.

Harris’ ears were chopped off! Sadly, this is all too familiar site that we see–dogs with their ears crudely hacked off by idiots trying to make them look like pitbulls. We can’t imagine the horrors this boy has suffered but he doesn’t hold a grudge and still loves people and life. Harris is a silly boy. His records list him as 1.5 yrs old, but he acts like a puppy. He only weighs 30 lbs and is another skinny pup that really needs to gain weight. He is a ham and even obliged us putting a funny turkey hat on him. The shelter lists him as a Blue Lacy mix–he has longer legs and a longer snout. He has the most haunting grey eyes. He’s great with other dogs, VERY affectionate and will jump up on your lap for love. He’s very smart too.

Stouffer was on the table and about to die when we called in the nick of time to get him a reprieve. He’s 2 yrs old and a tiny 31 lbs. Every bone is his malnourished little body shows. He has stunning green eyes. He is very easygoing and walked well on a leash with us. He’s very treat motivated and quickly learned to sit. They originally had him listed as a “pitbull mix” but the vet said she thinks he’s more of a pointer/vizla mix. His head looks big because he is starving and his body is so tiny. Once he gains A LOT of weight, he’ll look fabulous. He’s good with other dogs and is very sweet and affectionate.

Tank is a stunning boxer mix who was on death row simply because he wasn’t adopted fast enough. He’s done nothing wrong except wait patiently at the shelter for his forever family to take him home but they didn’t come. We couldn’t let Tank die, so we need your help to send him to his forever home! Tank is very sweet and easygoing. He’s affectionate and loves to hang out with you. He’s well behaved and walks well on a leash. He has the most gorgeous blue-green eyes you’ve ever seen. Tank is 40 pounds and is about 1 year old. He’s a boxer/staffordshire terrier mix of sorts with the cutest curlicue tail. Tank is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs too. Tank is a sweet soul who needs your help.

Thank you so much for your help. Together we can make Houston a no-kill city. We can’t do this without you!

Temporary foster homes needed for 8 days.

Update: We asked for temporary foster homes for these ten dogs today. All ten are now safe and sound, ready to be transported on November 1st. Thank you for all your help!

We are looking for temporary fosters for several pups who will go out on our next transport on Friday, Nov. 1st, which is only 8 days away. Pictures showing their insane adorableness are above.

Being a temporary foster is awesome: your costs are covered or you can receive a tax deduction for any of your expenses; you provide love and a home to a homeless pet, thereby filling up your karma bucket; it is for a definitive and short amount of time. Can you foster one of these pets for just 8 days? If you would like to become a temporary foster or would like more information about temporary fostering, please contact us at

If you cannot foster, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to go toward their care and transport. You can donate by credit card by going to our website at and clicking the donate tab. Or if you prefer to donate by check, please make it out to “RPM Inc.” and mail it to us at

RPM Inc.
3139 W. Holcombe Blvd. #135

Every cent of your donation will go toward transporting these well-deserving pets, toward temporarily fostering a pet until he or she can be transported, and/or toward reasonable and necessary medical costs.

Thank you so much for joining our movement to make Houston a no-kill city.

Adoption event and supply drive.

We’re having an adoption event and supply drive at The Corkscrew from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, November 2nd. Not only can you meet the RPM team, but you can unload everyday items you might have at home that will help us do what we do. The less towels, zip ties, bungee cords, or collars and leashes we have to buy, the more money we can put toward moving dogs and cats out of BARC, so please bring them by! While you’re there, you can say hello to some of the dogs we have available for adoption. You can adopt a dog and/or unload some old sheets. Everybody wins! Click the photo above to see a larger version with all the details. Please, tell your friends. See you there.


Tango had been hit by a car and ended up at BARC. After having surgery in Houston we coordinated efforts with another rescue group and he was adopted and transported to a great family in Colorado. They adore him and say he’s a very special dog. Below is a short video of Tango at Canine Rehabilitation & Conditioning Group‘s new facility in Broomfield, Colorado, where he goes to help build muscle in his back leg. We’re very happy for Tango!

A happy tail tale.

Fritz was moved as part of our transport last Saturday. She was added at the last minute to fill a spot opened up by an RPM dog who was adopted here in Houston. She was number one on the euthanasia list for that morning. Our contact in Colorado had this to say about Fritz:

image “Wow! [Fritz] is such a total LOVER! I dropped her off and she went RACING at warp speed around the foster’s yard with his other Pittie hoping to keep up. Ha! She is going to be very happy there. Thanks for saving [her]! I was in love in 1.2 seconds!”
