Today is Rescued Pets Movement’s first official transport. We have such a large demand from Colorado that we are actually having to make TWO back-to-back trips. One today and one on Monday (we have a wonderful driver). After Monday, over 70 pets will leave Houston’s shelters and go to loving forever and foster homes in Colorado. This email is about the two dogs and two puppies we are pulling out of BARC’s hospital ward so that it can make room for other sick animals. These four kids have kennel cough, which is easy to treat, but not a good reason to die.
This is a special plea for funds because these four pups are going to cost us quite a bit more than the typical $50 per pet. All four are being pulled today and taken to our veterinarian to receive medical care, and then we will have to board them for approximately two weeks before we can transport them to the group in Colorado waiting for them.
This is also a special plea for temporary fosters. We are working hard to build a temporary foster base for the animals we save that cannot go immediately out for transport. 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), and it is for a definitive (and short) amount of time. We would love for you to foster one of these pets for just two weeks. If you would like to become a temporary foster or would like more information about temporary fostering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are two ways for you to financially help one of these four dogs, and no amount is too small. You can make a tax-deductible donation by credit card by going to our website at www.rescuedpetsmovement.org 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

Every cent of your donation will go towards transporting these well-deserving pets, towards temporarily fostering a pet until he or she can be transported, and/or towards reasonable and necessary medical costs. Any excess funds we receive (we can dream, right?!) will automatically be applied to our next transport. Also, if one of the animals listed is adopted or rescued by another group, we will pull another dog or cat in his or her place.
Thank you so much for your help. Together we can make Houston a no-kill city.
