Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday, November 8th, to support our Christmas in November Adoption and Supply drive, and to Oak Forest Animal Advocates for partnering with us for the event. The entire day was a great success! Thank you to everyone who donated, came by to meet our awesome dogs, and for having their pictures taken with Santa and his giant elf. Also, a big thank you to our cook team, Santa, and the giant elf! You all made the day a memorable one. View photos from the event on Facebook here: Christmas in November photos
Please join Rescued Pets Movement and the Human Rights Campaign as we team up to raise money for two awesome causes at a lovely brunch on Halloween weekend. HRC and RPM invite you to The De Gaulle at 2811 Washington Avenue on Sunday November 2nd from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM to cure your Halloween hangovers and join us for football, food, and bloody marys, and to support our two organizations!
We have officially launched our Raise the Save Kennel Initiative. Thanks to all who came out and supported us at the kick-off happy hour at 3rd Floor last night. Thank you, Magpies & Peacocks for the T-shirts, raffle, and assorted fabulocity! Thank you, 3rd Floor for providing the perfect venue and donating 10% of the food and drink sales to RPM. It was a wonderful evening, and we raised enough money from the event to vaccinate a whole lot of puppies! (Vaccines are expensive!) If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the launch event yesterday, click here or on the Raise the Save tab above for more information on becoming a Raise the Save Kennel Initiative Sponsor.
It is hard to believe that it has been nearly one year since Rescued Pets Movement formed. The amount of time, energy, love, planning, and dollars that it has taken to get to this point is nothing short of BREATHTAKING!
Many of you have been fostering and volunteering with us since the beginning and some are BRAND NEW to the scene:) Regardless of how long you’ve supported RPM, we would like to invite you to our very first Foster Forum on August 23rd, 2014. This will be a great opportunity for you to tour the new clinic that is currently being renovated, explore the future of RPM and our processes, and for us to answer questions from our fosters and volunteers. Below is a tentative itinerary of the gathering. We encourage EVERYONE to attend, as so many things are changing with this ever growing program. You do not need to be a current foster to attend. We encourage everyone who is involved in our program or interested in becoming involved to join us. It will be informative, yet FUN:) and we are excited for everyone to be in one place at one time!!
9am-9:30: Meet and greet in lobby. 9:30am-10: Tour of the RPM building and details on the buildout plans. 10am-10:30: Building and Maintaining Colorado Relationships. 10:30-11: Shelter Illnesses and RPM Vet Protocols. 11am-11:30: Question and Answer Roundtable with the RPM Board.
You are invited to raise a glass with RPM as we kick off our Raise the Save Kennel Initiative fundraising bash at 3rd Floor on August 27th, 2014, from 5 PM to 8 PM at 2303 Smith Street, Houston, Tx. 77006. Lap up delicious bites and beverages from the talented team at 3rd Floor and soak up the spectacular skyline! 10% of our total sales will donated to RPM, so please bring a friend!
We want to thank Houston’s independent bookstore Murder By The Book and mystery writer Spencer Quinn for making RPM the beneficiary of a percentage of booksales at an event on Monday night. A thunderstorm (and even a brief power outage or two) provided just the right atmosphere to talk about Quinn’s mystery series featuring PI Bernie Little and his partner, Chet–who just happens to be a dog. Paw and Order is the seventh in the series, and we’re pretty sure that Chet–a dog who came from the mean streets then flunked out of police school before finding his true calling as a detective–would be delighted to know he’s helping Houston’s dogs (and yes, even some cats) find new forever homes where their talents can be appreciated, too.
