Puppy Foster Homes Needed!

Temporary foster homes needed. Please join our team by becoming a foster home and help these pups. They are the survivors from a littler that was left on the side of the road in Washington Co, TX. A good samaritan was kind enough to take them to Brenham Vet as long as True Blue Animal Rescue would take them in. We were happy to find out they have worms, infection and demodectic mange which is not contagious. They are now vaccinated and have been treated for the mange, worms and infection. They will remain at the vets office for the weekend. All they need now is a foster home to take care of them until they find a forever home. They are 5 month old, medium sized catahoula / lab mix puppies. Contact True Blue Animal Rescue if you can foster one, two or all three pups. help@t-bar.org or 979-277-4746. 

Donations to help with their care can be made via paypal at www.t-bar.org or mail to True Blue Animal Rescue PO Box 1107, Brenham, TX 77834

Rescued from certain death on the side of a road in Washington Co, these little pups are hopeful that someone will be able to foster them. All they need is a safe yard to run in and someone to feed and pet them. We can’t afford to pay to board them at the vet clinic much longer and all of our current foster homes are full. Please help by temporarily fostering these sweet 16 week old pups. Call 979-277-4746 or email help@t-bar.org if you can help.

Update: Foster home found!


True Blue Animal Partners with Houston SPCA


True Blue Animal Rescue submitted a request to support the Houston SPCA by transferring some dogs from their shelter into rescue on September 4th, 2017. Kylie Roach, Animal Community Coordinator for the Houston SPCA, responded on September 14 with rescue partner paperwork and an application to submit.

After submitting the application True Blue Animal Rescue was officially approved as a rescue transfer partner with the Houston SPCA on September 19, 2017. In the application the rescue requested to transfer pit bull and pit bull mix dogs, so Kylie sent pictures of four pit bull mix dogs for True Blue Animal Rescue to transfer.

Dale DeAeth, Facility Manager and Melanie DeAeth, President of True Blue Animal Rescue, drove to Houston SPCA to pick up the four dogs on September 23rd. All four dogs had been given all of their shots and were spayed, dewormed and tested for heartworms during the time that they were at the shelter. Melanie and Dale didn’t ask what their policy was but it is their belief that if these dogs were going to be euthanized the Houston SPCA wouldn’t have taken the time or spent the money to have these things done. Emmy, Blanca, Megan and Dottie, four gentle and friendly mix breed dogs, are now available for adoption through True Blue Animal Rescue.

Melanie and Dale have been taking in Bully Breeds since beginning True Blue Animal Rescue in 2004. Dale purchased his first pit bull in 1982, before the breed had been labeled as a vicious dog. He has always owned pit bulls since and is partial to rescuing bully breeds through True Blue Animal Rescue. He understands the challenges of caring for and adopting out this high energy terrier dog, also known as an American Pit Bull Terrier. Anyone who owns a terrier knows what a loyal, stoic and fearless dog they are. These qualities have been used against the pit bull by cruel owners who have exploited and abused them.

Bully Breeds are the hardest dog to find homes for and yet there are more bully breeds in rescue than any other. Sadly, without more options for all of these dogs, many are euthanized. Dale and Melanie were happy to be able to take in four from the Houston SPCA, doing their part to help find homes for a few more of these misunderstood dogs.

“If we want to stop euthanasia of these dogs,” said Melanie, “Then we need to find them homes, and most importantly, spay and neuter all pets until the overpopulation problem is under control.”

“I wish I could save them all”, said Dale, “but if I take in too many I’ll only become part of the problem because I can’t take proper care of every pit bull that needs a home. Unless we come together as a community and stop abuse, neglect, and overpopulation we cannot save them all.”

Puppy Adopted: Oscar

One of our foster homes named her nine foster pups after Sesame Street Characters and calls them the Sesame Street Group. Oscar was adopted but there’s still several left that need new homes. These sweet babies are chihuahua mixes and will only be about 10 pounds when grown. Take a look at them and then email help@t-bar.org to find out how to adopt!

Newest rescue: Murphy

I was driving to work and noticed this little guy on the side of the road. He was flat out and it didn’t look like he was alive but I noticed his tail move so I turned around to check on him. Sure enough he was breathing so I scooped him up and put him on my lap and drove to the nearest vet. The X-ray showed a broken pelvis so he’ll need extensive rehab and follow up X-rays to be sure it’s healing but he should be ok in about six weeks. He’s on total crate rest until he’s healed. He is able to prop himself up to eat and drink but spends most of his day laying flat. I named him Murphey after Murphey’s law and he would like your prayers and support. Donations to help pay for his vet care can be sent via paypal a twww.t-bar.org, on our facebook page or mail to True Blue Animal Rescue, PO Box 1107, Brenham, TX 77834

Help needed with HSPCA rescues

Update: Thanks to your donations we were able to buy the kennel panels and pick up the dogs. We still need to get dog houses for them before it gets cold. Please donate to help us purchase dog houses. 

We were approved to be a rescue partner with the Houston SPCA this week and were asked to take these four dogs that were not claimed by their owner. We have room for two but they showed us four pictures and we would really like to take them all. In order to do that we need to set up a couple more kennels and get them some dog houses. We need your help to do that. Please donate to help us save all four of these babies. Donations can be made via paypal on our website www.t-bar.org or on our facebook page. Checks can also be sent to True Blue Animal Rescue, PO Box 1107, Brenham, TX 77834.
We’d like to pick them up from HSPCA this weekend.


Hurricane Harvey Rescue Efforts (Updated)

September 19: In the Brenham Banner. We love our community, we all support each other and work together in Washington Co.

September 18: As we continued to support areas in need we called a staging area in Angleton and asked what they needed. As it turns out they had hay, grain and dog and cat food but didn’t have any cattle cubes for local cattle that had been displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Using money from the generous donations we received we were able to fill a tuck full of cattle feed and deliver it the next day. Thank you for your generous donation and support. www.t-bar.org

September 14: A lot of the animals that were rescued from Hurricane Harvey were injured and in need of medical care. When we heard that we called our Brenham Vet Hospital and Beard Navasota and asked for their support. Both vets donated wraps and bandages and Brenham Vet donated some pet food too! We brought a lot of these supplies to the Sam Houston Race Track in Houston along with hay and feed. It was wonderful to see all the vets and rescuers that stepped up during this time of need.#heartfelthelp #kindnessgoesalongway

September 13: Thanks to hay donations from Peach Pit Ranch, Shelli Schmidt, Dan Matula and Diane Holt we were able to bring hay to staging locations around Houston and Beaumont. Your generosity helped feed a lot of animals when they needed it most.www.t-bar.org — with Dan Matula.

September 11: Brenham’s Tractor Supply has gone above and beyond to help the animal victims of hurricane Harvey. They collected a huge box of items donated by their customers and then added a full pallet of dog food on top of that. When we brought the supplies to the Ford Center in Beaumont there was nothing for the animals to eat so these supplies, along with crates, hay and blankets were greatly appreciated. In this picture the District Manager, Kevin DuBose, along with TSC assistant manager, Monica Reeves, is presenting Melanie DeAeth, president of True Blue Animal Rescue with two gift cards to Tractor Supply totaling $2650! That will help us do a lot more for the animals effected by Hurricane Harvey. True Blue Animal Rescue. www.t-bar.org

September 5: More community donations to help fill the two stock trailers and pick up truck load of supplies that we brought to the Ford Center to help the animals that are victims of Hurricane Harvey. We’re thankful for everyone’s support and will share more pictures and thank yous to all those who helped as time allows.

September 4: So many people worked so hard to gather donations and get them to the animals in need. Aggieland Humane Society out of Bryan, TX is one of them. Their supplies were used at the Ford Center to take care of the animals. Thank you Leiha, for coordinating and delivering the supplies. We even used the bunny cage for a displaced bunny that came in. ?❤️?

Here’s the bunny, safe and comfortable in the cage that was sent by Aggieland Humane Society Thank you!!
