Success Story Sunday – Basil

Oh what a difference a few months of love can make!! Last fall, Basil arrived at BARC in sad shape – he was extremely emaciated, weighing less than 30 pounds, and was battling a case of mange. RPM pulled him and sent him to one of our Colorado partners, and he’s hardly recognizable anymore! He happened across his forever family at the dog park and has since doubled in size. From his forever family:

“We met Basil while on a walk at Chatfield Dog Park and fell in love with him. He gradually grew and put on weight and now weighs a whopping 60 lbs and is very tall and sturdy. He brings much mischief and joy into our home and is a great doggy brother to our other adopted dog, Thor. Thank you so much for saving this dog and bringing him into our lives.”

We’re so happy that he found a loving family to nurture and help him grow into the dog that he is today!

Success Story Sunday – Family Reunion

Some time ago, RPM transported a older, pregnant momma to one of our partner rescues in Colorado. She had her puppies, and all were adopted into different, but happy and loving homes. Recently, several of the adopters arranged to get-together and have a big family reunion!! Momma Teresa and a few of the siblings weren’t able to make it, but five pups did! All had a wonderful and special puppy play date.

For those of us on the Houston side, it can be scary to send these cats and dogs so far away, but they have such great lives waiting for them! Special and fun things like this are so great to see. Our partner rescues find loving homes and awesome lives for these animals that never would have had a chance here in Texas.

Success Story Sunday – Kona (fka Happy)

Within two days of landing in Colorado, Kona (fka Happy) found her forever home. She’s quickly settling in and her forever family has this to say about her:

Kona is settling in well in Colorado Springs and is currently enjoying a snoozy snuggle with my mom on the porch swing. Her new big sister is Puzzle, an 11 year old border collie/heeler mix who is trying to teach her to play with her and the toys. She’s a sweetie and we look forward to getting to know her and training her.

Welcome home Kona!
