Success Story Saturday: Jake.


Judging from the above photo, I’d say Jake is feeling pretty comfortable in his new home. Don’t you think so? We’re glad he’s doing well in Colorado now, and we’re glad to share this note from his new mom:

Jake is doing good. We have been going on lots of walks and he is now starting to get used to being around the barn [and] learning proper behavior around the horses. He seems to be very happy here which is wonderful!! Everyone comments on how nice a dog he is, and he loves all the attention he gets from friends and even strangers.

    YAY! Jake! So many tried to help this boy not get killed in the shelter. SO, SO wonderful to see him living a safe, loved life in beautiful Colorado! Thanks to everyone who played a part in saving Jake. 🙂

    That’s a “thank you -tummy shot” that should be forwarded to Houston City Council in response to their recent funding increase to help homeless animals in H’town! If there is any news of recently transported “TONGA” pup (fawn/white spotted male), we sure would like to know back here at foster homes…

    Depending on the number of toes Jake has, it could even be a “High Five”!

    My wife and I rescued Jake originally on March 17th. We tried to integrate him into our household and couldn’t make it happen. We left him with BARC. I didn’t know BARC was a killing field for animals with very little incentive for saving animals. My sister, Julie and I got RPM involved and they saved Jake from BARC and got him the medical care he needed and then sent him to Colorado for adoption. He’s a happy dog and I thank God for Rescued Pets Movement.

    Thank you, Ken. We really appreciate your kind words and everything you did for Jake. However, we have to disagree with your comment about BARC being “killing field” and doing little to help the dogs and cats that come into their shelter. BARC sends out pleas every day to hundreds of the rescue organizations in Houston asking for help on behalf of every dog and cat that comes through their doors. They do off site adoption events. They have a foster program to try to keep dogs and cats out of their shelter so they won’t get euthanized. They also take very good care of the dogs and cats while they’re in the shelter. They’ve vastly improved, and I hope you’ll go see for yourself that they have, and maybe volunteer so you can help them be even better, which is what we hope to do by partnering with BARC to give Houston’s homeless pets a second chance at living. We’re glad we could help you and Jake. Thank you for caring for Houston’s homeless pets!
