Shadow and 8 lab mix puppies need fosters and sponsors

Friends,

RPM is saving Shadow today! We also are working to save 8 tiny lab mix puppies who were scheduled to be put to sleep today and will get out in the nick of time. We couldn’t let Shadow or these little puppies die and we’ll be sending them up to Colorado. But we need your help and can’t do it without you! Here is what we need to save them:

1. Can anyone foster (1) Shadow and (2) one of the little puppies starting right away? You can take one puppy or two or three–you tell us and we make it work. Please email RPM at fosters@rescuedpetsmovement.org if you can help. Boarding costs are so expensive and it’s much easier on the dogs to be in a home. It will probably be a 2 week commitment;

2. Would you please consider sponsoring Shadow or one of the precious little puppies’ transport and vet costs? We can’t do it without you! No amount is too small and every dollar goes directly to helping the animals! Transport costs run us $50 to $75 per dog. Plus we’re looking at boarding for 2 weeks for Shadow and all of the puppies unless fosters are found, a year of heartguard for Shadow and vet care for the puppies. There are two ways for you to sponsor a dog or dogs. You can make a tax-deductible donation by credit card by going to our website at www.rescuedpetsmovement.org and clicking the donate tab. While you’re there, please consider making a monthly donation. Or if you prefer to donate by check, please make it out to “RPM Inc.” and mail it to us at

RPM Inc.
3139 W. Holcombe Blvd. #135
Houston, Texas 77025

Every cent of your donation will go towards transporting this well-deserving little family/or towards temporarily fostering a pet until he or she can be transported. Any excess funds we receive (we can dream, right?!)will automatically be applied to our next transport.

Thank you for your help. Together we can make Houston a no-kill city.

Here are the lab mix puppies we are working to save:

The wheels on the bus…

Thanks to the hard work of RPM’s volunteers, fosters, and friends, along with the folks at BARC, another 44 dogs and one cat were saved from euthanasia and sent to our rescue affiliates in Colorado. Some of these beautiful faces have had heartbreaking beginnings, but they’ll enjoy happy lives in their new homes with loving families.


But wait, says Mousey the Cat, that’s not all!


These are just a few of the people our dogs and cats love and we thank.


A favorite sight: pets heading for their new homes. Safe travels!

Beau needs a one week foster home, please!

Update: Beau not only found a foster home, he was adopted into his forever home! Thank you, everyone, for your response and interest.

A happy update from RPM

Hi Friends,

We wanted this to be solely a happy email to let you know that 44 BARC dogs and cats left Houston last Friday for Colorado. Over the weekend, 31 of those dogs were already adopted and the other dogs and cats are in loving foster homes. In just a little over a month, Rescued Pets Movement has saved 196 dogs and cats who were scheduled for certain death and transported them to other nonprofit, no-kill rescue groups in Colorado that have real-live foster homes waiting for them.

And when we say certain death, we MEAN certain death. Here is a true story about Stouffer, the dog with the stunning green eyes:

This is Stouffer’s BARC picture. Handsome isn’t he? But so sad . . . .

Emails had been swirling around about Stouffer in the rescue community because he was about to be euthanized, and no Houston-area rescue had space for him. When we finally found a rescue group in Colorado to take him, we called our contact at BARC, and he literally ran down the hall to the euthanasia area where Stouffer was sitting on the table and the doctor had the euthanasia shot in his hand. Certain death. He was taken off the table, and here is how he looked as he was waiting for his turn to get on the transport van:

So we said we “wanted” this to be solely a happy email, but we’ve learned we don’t always get what we want. We know we are always hitting people up for funds, but including vet bills, transporting each pet is averaging us at least $150 to $200. Even if you cannot donate (and please DON’T if you can’t afford to), we would love it if you just shared this post with your contacts so we can grow a larger base of donors, supporters, and volunteers. Spreading the word is huge.

There are two ways for you to donate. You can make a tax-deductible donation by credit card here on our website by 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 toward transporting these well-deserving pets, toward temporarily fostering a pet until he or she can be transported, and/or toward reasonable and necessary veterinary expenses.

We are honored to have your help. Together we can make Houston a no-kill city.

Here are some happy pictures of us loading these babies up last Friday:

A great start to the month

RPM, BARC, volunteers, and some of our foster families kicked off November by sending five cats and 42 dogs to new homes in Colorado. The sun was shining on these wonderful animals whose lives have been saved thanks to rescuers in Houston and affiliates in Colorado.

Our hardworking group pauses for a photo.

The cats said it was okay for the dogs to go along.

Thank you to the fosters who welcome these dogs and cats into their homes and provide conscientious care.

More of the crew.

Mike ready to deliver these wonderful animals safely to their new homes.

Temporary fosters needed for 6 dogs.

Last Friday BARC asked us to take some Length of Stay dogs that were set to be euthanized. These dogs (featured below) survived up to 55 days at BARC only to be scheduled for euthanasia. Taking a chance on raising enough money, we pulled them in the nick of time, but we need foster homes in Houston and Colorado for just 7 days and/or donations for their care. If you are interested in being a TEMPORARY foster, please contact us at foster@rescuedpetsmovement.org.

If you’d like to make a donation, no amount is too small! You can make a tax-deductible donation by credit card by going to www.rescuedpetsmovement.org and clicking the donate tab. If you’d 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 toward transporting these well-deserving dogs or to the costs incurred for temporarily fostering a pet until he or she can be transported. Any excess funds we receive will automatically be applied to our next transport.

And if you can’t donate, don’t worry–just spread the word for us. That helps a lot.

Here are the dogs!


Beverly Beverly said, “Please, please save me!” Doesn’t she melt your heart? This girl is a hoot! She is about 2 years old and is 41 lbs. She is a chunky monkey and looks like a cinderblock with legs. She ran up and hugged us as soon as we got her out of BARC. She then does this silly crawl all over the place and just put on a show. She is so so sweet, very friendly and absolutely precious! She’ll definitely win Miss Congenality. She was listed as a boxer mix and she is built like a bulldog, so she’s probably that or maybe some pittie. All we know is that she’s a sweetheart.


Clark is precious! He’s about 1 year old and weighs just 23 lbs. He could use a sandwich or two. He’s a quiet, easy soul who just wants to be loved. He’s very gentle and easy, walks well on a leash, and stays right with you. He loves a bag of treats. He’s good with other dogs and should be a very easy. He’s quiet and sweet and we’re sure he was passed over by potential adopters every time because of it. He’s listed as a plot hound mix.


Draya is another skin and bones baby. She is about 3 years old and weights 36 lbs, but should probably weigh more like 50 lbs. She has the sweetest, most soulful eyes and will lean against you. She’s good with other dogs and didn’t even mind being bossed around by a big male chow mix. She even put up with our funny costumes. She walks well on a leash and is a very sweet dog. She’s listed as boxer mix, but looks more hound/lab.


Harris’ ears were chopped off! Sadly, this is all too familiar site that we see–dogs with their ears crudely hacked off by idiots trying to make them look like pitbulls. We can’t imagine the horrors this boy has suffered but he doesn’t hold a grudge and still loves people and life. Harris is a silly boy. His records list him as 1.5 yrs old, but he acts like a puppy. He only weighs 30 lbs and is another skinny pup that really needs to gain weight. He is a ham and even obliged us putting a funny turkey hat on him. The shelter lists him as a Blue Lacy mix–he has longer legs and a longer snout. He has the most haunting grey eyes. He’s great with other dogs, VERY affectionate and will jump up on your lap for love. He’s very smart too.


Stouffer was on the table and about to die when we called in the nick of time to get him a reprieve. He’s 2 yrs old and a tiny 31 lbs. Every bone is his malnourished little body shows. He has stunning green eyes. He is very easygoing and walked well on a leash with us. He’s very treat motivated and quickly learned to sit. They originally had him listed as a “pitbull mix” but the vet said she thinks he’s more of a pointer/vizla mix. His head looks big because he is starving and his body is so tiny. Once he gains A LOT of weight, he’ll look fabulous. He’s good with other dogs and is very sweet and affectionate.

Tank is a stunning boxer mix who was on death row simply because he wasn’t adopted fast enough. He’s done nothing wrong except wait patiently at the shelter for his forever family to take him home but they didn’t come. We couldn’t let Tank die, so we need your help to send him to his forever home! Tank is very sweet and easygoing. He’s affectionate and loves to hang out with you. He’s well behaved and walks well on a leash. He has the most gorgeous blue-green eyes you’ve ever seen. Tank is 40 pounds and is about 1 year old. He’s a boxer/staffordshire terrier mix of sorts with the cutest curlicue tail. Tank is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs too. Tank is a sweet soul who needs your help.

Thank you so much for your help. Together we can make Houston a no-kill city. We can’t do this without you!
