Unfortunately, technical difficulties with RPM’s volunteer photographer’s software have suspended our ability to continue these posts. When a solution is found, the last transport of March 2018 and future transports hopefully can be added to the website. We’re sorry, because we enjoy posting your transported animals and sharing our transport days with all of you.
RPM could not exist without our fosters, donors, volunteers, transporters, medical partners, and rescue partners. Thank all of you from all of us for everything you do to save lives!
It’s been such a busy few months that your volunteer photographer can’t keep up with all the dogs and cats (and don’t forget the pigs!) who have left for their forever homes. All the animals from the last quarter of 2017–October, November, and December–are featured in this post by month.
The first week of October, these were our lucky travelers.
These are the dogs and cats who left on the second transport of October.
The next week, these great looking dogs and cats boarded the vans for their forever homes!
These are the dogs and cats who traveled the last week of October.
November provided beautiful weather for our first transport of the month. These dogs caught their ride on a van to Chicago with one of our rescue partners.
These were the rest of our lucky travelers that day.
Here are the pets who traveled on the second transport of November.
These dogs and cats went to Colorado on the third transport of November.
These lucky dogs and cats traveled in time to have their Thanksgiving dinners in Colorado.
Our last transport of November was a big one, with lots of dogs and cats riding into their futures. And the three “little” pigs caught a ride to new homes, too!
Then it was December! It was a rainy day, but we kept these dogs and cats warm and dry as they were loaded on the first transport of the month.
These are the dogs and cats who transported the second week of December.
Christmas came early for these dogs and cats who traveed toward their forever homes on the third transport of December.
These are the dogs and cats whose journey finished December and a great fourth quarter for RPM.
These are some of the people who helped organize the transports for the entire last quarter. They couldn’t do it without our donors, fosters, transporters, volunteers, and shelter and medical partners. Thank you, everyone!
It was a very busy September! Our first transport after the Harvey floods was one of our largest ever. We worked with rescue organizations from all over the country to clear the shelters and make room for animals displaced by the storm. We also worked hard to move many of the dogs and cats in our program to their new homes so our fosters would have space for dogs and cats waiting for their families to find them or to take care of animals who had no homes to return to.
Here are the dogs and cats who traveled the first week of September.
These wily pups skipped the photo table: Gerri and Caroline
These are the dogs and cats who traveled the following week.
On the third transport of the month, these dogs and cats headed for their forever families.
These are the dogs and cats who traveled the last week of September.
From all of RPM to all of you, thank you for volunteering, fostering, transporting, donating, and sharing what we do on your social media sites. We think you’re all kind of a big deal.
August began hot and busy with our first transport of the month. These are the dogs and cats who traveled that day.
These are the dogs and cats who traveled the second week of August.
It was another scorching morning when these dogs and cats left for the cooler Colorado climate and their new homes.
The fourth transport in August was supposed to be the next-to-last of the month. A force of nature named Harvey had other ideas. Here are the lucky dogs and cats who were safely in Colorado before the rains and floods came to Houston and the fifth transport of the month had to be postponed!
Thank you so much to our donors, fosters, transporters, volunteers, and supporters for all you do to get dogs and cats off the streets of Houston and into their new homes! Please join us on transport mornings–the best day of our week!
Who traveled to Colorado in June? We’re glad you asked. We just happen to have a few photos beginning with the first transport of the month.
The second week of June, these lucky dogs and cats caught a ride on our vans to their forever homes.
Was your foster one of those who traveled on the third transport of the month?
During the fourth week of the month, it was time for these dogs and cats to go to their new families.
What’s better than four transports in June? FIVE transports in June. The cats decided to wait until July to travel and generously gave more dogs and pups their tickets to ride.
Whether you foster, donate, volunteer, transport, or say nice things about us on social media, RPM can’t thank you enough. Join us for a transport so you, too, can be hounded into being part of the group shot. We may work hard and sweat, and there may be a few goodbye tears, but transport days are the best days!
We also want to give a special shout-out to VIP Petcare for the donation of their time and services on transport days in June. What a great group of people to partner with!
May turned out to be a great fundraising month for RPM thanks to all of our generous donors. Below are the dogs and cats who traveled that month–can you find your precious foster among them?
This group traveled on the first transport of the month.
Lunar traveled, too, but didn’t make it into the collage, so he gets a solo photo.
The next week, our Wisconsin partner picked up these lucky dogs.
These dogs and cats traveled to Colorado that week.
These are the pets who made the journey on the third transport of May.
We finished May transporting these gorgeous dogs and cats.
We’re so grateful for our fosters, donors, transporters, and volunteers and hope you’ll continue to support us with your time, energy, and donations. We have a new fundraising challenge beginning July 11. Join us as a team member and donor in the Macy’s Shop For a Cause Fundraiser! It’s a contest with a $100,000 grand prize! That would move a lot of dogs and cats into forever homes, joining the more than 22,000 RPM has already saved thanks to our partners BARC and Harris County and our great rescue partners.
