Pictured at left are Dave and Debby with RPM rescued dog Emelia. Dave and his wife Lisa fostered Emelia, and Debby, from Homeless Pet Placement League shared Emelia’s story:
This gorgeous shepherd is Emelia. She came into BARC with a horribly injured back left leg. HPPL’s good friends at RPM were able to pull this girl and have her assessed by a vet who said the leg was useless and Emelia needed it amputated. RPM knows that HPPL loves to help medically challenged animals and so that’s what we did. An animal’s resilience is evident as a week after surgery, Emelia was running by the water. Shortly thereafter, Emelia loaded up for transport to Colorado where just a few days after her arrival, she stole the heart of her foster mom who then became her permanent mom. Teamwork! BARC, RPM, HPPL, Houston fosters and Colorado “mom.” One more precious life saved!
Thank you, HPPL! Every dog and cat in RPM’s program is saved thanks to teamwork, and we’re delighted that many rescue groups, donors, and volunteers work so tirelessly with us to be part of the solution.
