November Speels Sweet Memory at RPM

November Spells Sweet Memory

November gave us many reasons to be thankful and celebrate. With more than 450 dogs and cats transported during the month, RPM passed the 17,000 saved milestone! That’s more than 17,000 dogs, cats, and two pigs given their chance at better lives in three years! In addition, BARC’s live release rate for November–the first month of their 90-for-90 challenge–was 91.1 percent! In the world of rescue, that’s a “no kill” number. Congratulations to all the hardworking people at BARC who’ve made this possible with their rescue partnerships and adoptions. We’re so happy to be part of your team!

Our Wisconsin rescue partner came the first week of the month to take these lucky pups to their new homes.

There’s no way all the great milestones of November would have been possible without our partnerships with BARC and the out-of-state rescue groups who love our dogs and cats as much as we do; our volunteers, fosters, transporters, and donors; and our great veterinary partners. THANK YOU for all you do, and we hope to see you December 3 for our 3rd Anniversary Party!

October Sun is Shining at RPM

October Sun Is Shining

It takes a lot of work to get all of RPM’s dogs and cats ready for travel, as our fosters well know. Recently to ensure the dogs’ good health, we have started administering third booster shots for some pups, and even second boosters for older dogs. We’re grateful that BARC has a booster clinic set up for your use. Along with the boosters we give at RPM’s clinic, this gives you lots of options for getting your dogs their shots so they can travel. Please open your booster emails and respond promptly if you will need an appointment time at our clinic. Those slots fill up fast! Once boostered and in good health, these are the dogs and cats who traveled to Colorado on our second transport of the month.

1. Lily; Brutus; Shayla; Stanley; Raleigh 2. Diedre; Dolby; Duchess; Lola; Nico 3. Mouse; Rose; Cassie; Bippa; Amity, Amos, and Anelle 4. Case; Winfield; Smokey; Scout; Muneca 5.

Recently several people have asked who names the dogs and cats in our program. Many are named at BARC, and many of our cat foster parents give names to the cats and kittens in their care. Because of the large number of dogs and puppies in our records inventory at one time (several hundred!), we have one RPM staffer who names any unnamed dogs. The goal is to avoid duplicate names on transport. Those mornings are so busy and everything moves quickly, and when our fosters and volunteers are trying to distinguish among four dogs named Max and three dogs named Brownie at the collar and sticker tables and on the vans, it’s easy to make errors. Though some of our dogs’ names may seem a little unconventional, their forever families are most likely going to give them new names. We appreciate our fosters for using the names in our records on transport day to avoid confusion.

1. Brooke; Frodo; Suzie; Sparrow; Spartan 2. Marla; Lover Boy; Emerson; Nancy’s puppies Nicolas, Natty, Norbert, and Nadeen 3. Nancy; Felix; Nadine; Holden; Ellie 4.

On the fourth transport day of the month, Wisconsin returned to pick up these dogs–and RPM’s first pig! Like the dogs who’ll be adopted into homes, Tiny Tater is going from being a stray on Houston’s streets to a good life where he’s cherished and comfortable. Thank you, Wisconsin!

1. Emoji; Etches; Eiffel; Damion; Jenny 2. Josh; Jasmine; Vivi’s puppies Becca, Kai, Enzo, Daliah, Elena, Kara, and Nadia; Vivi; Scotty 3. Austin; Citizen; Starla; Betsy; Tiny Tater the Pig

On that same day, the dogs and cats below traveled to Colorado. We are so grateful to our fosters for the time and energy they give to make sure everyone is healthy and ready to go. The drivers who give them their freedom rides out of BARC, the fosters and volunteers who get them to and from vetting appointments, and those who get them to the clinic on transport day mean there are a lot of wheels on the ground to make this happen even before the vans roll out of Houston. Speaking of our vans, it takes a lot to keep them maintained and in good running condition. You may have noticed that we’ve had to rent some vans while ours were being repaired throughout the last couple of months. We can always use donations to help keep the fleet in great condition. Thank you to our donors and to our drivers who work hard to keep everything running smoothly and the animals safe!

Ariel and Bruno; Truffles and her kittens; Harley and Batman; Shallow and Mist; Mickey

The last transport of the month was a big one! Many of the dogs and cats had to clear some health hurdles to be ready to travel. Thank you for using BARC’s clinic and please remember that when you do, take your fosters’ kennel cards and make BARC aware that your fosters are part of RPM’s program. This helps BARC provide our medical team with health updates. We also appreciate that when you bring potentially sick fosters to RPM’s clinic, you take them through the back entrance. This keeps the front of our building free of germs and contamination so the healthy animals on transport day aren’t at risk.

There are a lot of moving parts in the relationships RPM has with BARC and our rescue partners. We keep our staff lean, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we manage the locations and health concerns of hundreds of animals at one time. We try to be quickly responsive to your emails, texts, and social media messages and like you, we’re juggling our home lives (and sometimes sleep!) with our RPM responsibilities. There is no way our staff could do what we do without all of the volunteers who assist us, including our terrific foster parents, transporters, clinic volunteers, and transport day volunteers. Along with our donors and our vet partners, you manage miracles every day! Thank you!

Hot fun in the Summertime at RPM

Hot Fun in the Summertime

July is not only the month when we celebrated reaching our 15,000 Saved milestone, it’s also the month when these fantastic dogs and cats put in the miles to get to their forever homes. Starting with the first transport of the month, here are those who traveled.

1. Lavelle; Lavelle’s puppies Lafe, Lance, Luna, Luke, Livia, Lyssa, and Linda Lou; Shailo; Gallager; Carol 2. Bo; Joey; Rachel; Phoebe; Valerie 3. Valerie’s puppies Vanda, Vesta, Vicar, Valleen, Vincent, Vaughn, Vonnie, and Victor; Max; Jordan; Logan; Camille 4. Della and Drew; Ballerina; Christian; June; Bentley 5. Raynee; Whitney; Ricochet; Maya; Amadeus 6. Cara; Imogene; Adele; Cody; Sarah 7. Augustus; Riley; Farrah; Faizah; Fantine 8. Juliet; Darla; Diego; Akasha; Akasah’s puppies Anders, Anita, and Amelie 9. Wishbone; Olive; Tetris; Turbo; Toro
1. Allyson; Allyson’s puppies Alicia, Arleen, Ashley, and Anna May; Sandra 2. Kristy; Pride; Cherise; Rosie; Gil 3. Gus; Sammie and her kittens; Tai, Mai, Miso, and Yuki; Hans and Luke

We strive every July to remind our friends, volunteers, and fosters of two important safely issues. First, because of fireworks and crowds, in the US, July 4 is the day the highest number of animals go missing. And second, this is the time of year when pets left in vehicles can suffer severe illness and even death. In Houston, we’re accustomed to year-round high temperatures, but like other areas of the country, July is often the hottest month of the year. Leave your pets at home, inside, or if they’re outside, make sure they have shade and plenty of water. If you’re traveling with them in the car, please don’t leave them unattended. Temperatures inside a car can quickly reach 140 degrees F.

These dogs kept their cool when they traveled to Wisconsin the second week of July.

1. Sweetheart; Lobo; Chip; Bruno; Cole 2. Cooper; Faith; Dee-Dee; Scruffy; Chester 3. Moxie; Maddox; Awty’s puppies Paris, London, Italy, Belgium, Amsterdam, Germany, Scotland, and Frankfurt (Awty skpped the photo table)

When it’s summertime, the heat can slow us all down, but lethargy is still something to watch for in puppies. It can be a sign of illness, and it’s better to err on the side of caution. If your puppies’ energy levels seem low, it’s a good idea to let a medical professional look at them. Fortunately, these frisky dogs and cats were healthy and happy to travel on our third transport of the month.

Senior pets are also susceptible to heat. Make sure their water bowls don’t tip over easily, keep their water fresh and cool, and make multiple bowls of water available inside and outside (in the shade) to be safe. Take walks with them during the cooler times of day, and remember that sand, asphalt, and concrete can be particularly hot on your pets’ feet. During the last week of the month, these dogs and cats appreciated air-conditioned comfort on their journey to Colorado.

These pups traveled to two rescue partners in Wisconsin that same day.

There aren’t enough words to express RPM’s appreciation for the great care you take of the foster dogs and cats who come through RPM to get to their forever homes. Thanks to all our fosters, transporters, donors, volunteers, rescue and vet partners, BARC staff, and RPM staff for all you do!

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.

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!
