We love it when we see photos of the pets we’ve transported with their new families. Do you remember little Bison? Bison has been adopted into his forever home with welcoming smiles!
Here are some more familiar Houston faces who are among those now living in forever homes in Colorado.
And here is a video of Clark. After we moved him from BARC to Denver, Clark was adopted by a family in North Dakota and is now having the time of his life running through the snow.
Clark’s new dad wrote to us and said:
Clark is doing just great. We had a rough start with him in regards to our shoes. I believe in all we lost about $350 or more worth of shoes–haha–but we’ve been more careful and invested in a kennel. It is quite cold here! I believe the high today is going to be 6 with snow showers all day. Luckily, we’ve invested in a dog jacket and Clark loves the snow! He runs around, burrows his face, and jumps into the drifts. Thanks for all your help getting Clark to us. He’s definitely part of the family now and we love him very much!
Thank you to all those who’ve made it possible to help these wonderful animals find places where they’ll be nurtured and loved. If you notice the number on the upper right just under the “Donate” button–it’s always getting higher–as of today, we’ve moved 510 dogs and cats off of the euthanasia schedule to their chance at long, happy lives.
Those of you who adopt a rescue dog or cat: You are their heroes, and we think you’re great, too.
In our last post, we told you about RPM’s successful media launch. With so much activity surrounding the two vans, the media, and the many animals to transport, our photographer wasn’t able to get the photos and names of all 48 dogs and four cats. We never forget that these deserving pets are who we’re working for, so we wanted to share at least a few of their names and faces.
A word about Jonah and the marks on his head. When he and his foster mom were on their way to the event, she stopped at her salon and of course took him inside with her. Her hairdresser covered his sweet head with kisses–and who wouldn’t? He’s wearing the traces of her lipstick.
We love the BARC staff and our fosters, friends, donors, transporters, affiliate organizations, vets, boarders, and the people on the other end of the journey who meet and often photograph the dogs there. All the dogs and cats from this transport are now safe and sound in Colorado. Here are a few photos of their arrival.
We’re excited to tell you that since our last post about the most recent transports, fifty dogs have been adopted! These are dogs who would have been euthanized but instead are now settling into their forever homes. Here are a few photos taken when the dogs arrived safely in Colorado to be greeted by rescuers, fosters, and adopters there.
Thank you to everyone who helped get these wonderful dogs to Colorado, including those on the other end who are ready to welcome Houston’s dogs and cats when they arrive. Thanks also to Sarah Roshan for letting us share her photos.
It was like Mother’s Day when RPM volunteers, fosters, and transporters met to save thirty-eight more BARC dogs and send them to their new homes in Colorado. Sybil and “Mama” were the sweetest, most patient dogs they could be as their puppies were transferred into their cozy carriers for the ride north.
Another little mama, Suzie Q, has six babies whose eyes haven’t opened yet. She and the rest of the dogs were happy to get on board.
We could never accomplish all that we have without people who value the well-being and future of animals who deserve their chance at good lives. Thank you!
Have a safe journey, Jolene and company!
Once again, through the hard work of RPM volunteers, fosters, BARC, and boarding and vet facilities, another group of dogs is on the way to new homes. However you support this effort, you are saving lives–from the littlest puppies like Consuela to the gentle old giants like Red. You make a difference and we thank you.
Some helpers who tucked the dogs safely into their travel berths left before we could get a photo, many of them to pick up other dogs and cats to foster or deliver.
Driver Mike is on his way!
Earlier today Coconut was in BARC, about to be put to sleep. Now she’s in her new foster home, undoubtedly thinking, I didn’t know it could be like this!
