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!

Temporary foster homes needed for 8 days.

Update: We asked for temporary foster homes for these ten dogs today. All ten are now safe and sound, ready to be transported on November 1st. Thank you for all your help!

We are looking for temporary fosters for several pups who will go out on our next transport on Friday, Nov. 1st, which is only 8 days away. Pictures showing their insane adorableness are above.

Being a temporary foster is awesome: your costs are covered or you can receive a tax deduction for any of your expenses; you provide love and a home to a homeless pet, thereby filling up your karma bucket; it is for a definitive and short amount of time. Can you foster one of these pets for just 8 days? If you would like to become a temporary foster or would like more information about temporary fostering, please contact us at foster@rescuedpetsmovement.org.

If you cannot foster, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to go toward their care and transport. You can donate by credit card by going to our website at www.rescuedpetsmovement.org and 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

Angie needs our help.

angieBARC
RPM is rescuing little Angie from BARC today as she was set to be put to sleep over the weekend. She is a 6 month old lab puppy and just 24lbs. She is spayed, up to date on shots and all ready to go home. She will be picked up from BARC today and head to our vet to be checked out and then will be ready to go. She has a foster home with other labbie brothers and sisters waiting for her in Colorado and together, we can save her sweet little life. Here is where we need your help:

1. Can someone temporary foster this little one for the week? We plan to send her on our CO run next week. It’s so hard on puppies to sit in boarding (and an expense that can be better used to save the life of another dog or cat who can go to CO).

2. Need $50 to sponsor for her ride to CO – can anyone be her rescue angel and sponsor her? Or maybe a few people can come together to sponsor her.

Please email me at cperini92@gmail.com if you can help foster her. To donate for her, please visit us at www.rescuedpetsmovement.org

Angie and your friends at RPM want to thank you so much for being part of the animal rescue community and coming together to save so many lives!!

Thanks!

RPM Needs Temporary Fosters for Its BARC Hospital Dogs (Pretty Please?)

Friends,

Rescued Pets Movement’s first official transport was a success, and today another group of dogs and cats will be bound for new homes in Colorado (more about that later). This email is about the two dogs and two puppies we pulled out of BARC’s hospital ward last week so that it could make room for other sick animals. These four kids had kennel cough, which was easy to treat. Right now they are boarding at our vet, so we would love to get them into loving foster homes for just two weeks where they can await transport to Colorado.

Being a temporary foster is awesome: your costs are covered or you can receive a tax deduction for any of your expenses, you provide love and a home to a homeless pet (thereby filling up your karma bucket), and it is for a definitive (and short) amount of time. Can you foster one of these pets for just two weeks? If you would like to become a temporary foster or would like more information about temporary fostering, please contact us at info@rescuedpetsmovement.org.

There are two ways for you to financially help one of these four dogs, and no amount is too small. You can make a tax-deductible donation by credit card by going to our website at www.rescuedpetsmovement.org and 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

Also, if one of the animals listed is adopted or rescued by another group, we will pull another dog or cat in his or her place.

RPM needs your help with hospital dogs

Friends,

Today is Rescued Pets Movement’s first official transport. We have such a large demand from Colorado that we are actually having to make TWO back-to-back trips. One today and one on Monday (we have a wonderful driver). After Monday, over 70 pets will leave Houston’s shelters and go to loving forever and foster homes in Colorado. This email is about the two dogs and two puppies we are pulling out of BARC’s hospital ward so that it can make room for other sick animals. These four kids have kennel cough, which is easy to treat, but not a good reason to die.

This is a special plea for funds because these four pups are going to cost us quite a bit more than the typical $50 per pet. All four are being pulled today and taken to our veterinarian to receive medical care, and then we will have to board them for approximately two weeks before we can transport them to the group in Colorado waiting for them.

This is also a special plea for temporary fosters. We are working hard to build a temporary foster base for the animals we save that cannot go immediately out for transport. Being a temporary foster is awesome: your costs are covered or you can receive a tax deduction for any of your expenses, you provide love and a home to a homeless pet (thereby filling up your karma bucket), and it is for a definitive (and short) amount of time. We would love for you to foster one of these pets for just two weeks. If you would like to become a temporary foster or would like more information about temporary fostering, please contact us at info@rescuedpetsmovement.org.
