Donation from Emery!

We had another visit from one of our favorite friends. This young lady collected food for the animals again and made the trip out to deliver it in person. Thank you Emery for another great supply of horse feed, dog food and dog treats! You are making a difference in the lives of animals!

RAIN Networking Facebook Page

TBAR-Rain-Page-Reminder-2016True Blue Animal Rescue hosts a page called RAIN Networking. We use that page to network Rescue Animals In Need. That means they haven’t been officially accepted into TBAR because they don’t have a foster home so we ‘network for a home’ We do pay for spay / neuter if they aren’t fixed but we list them before that’s done to find a foster or adopter quickly. We post with the contact for the person who has the animal so we don’t always hear back to find out if they found a home. This week we did hear that these two DID find homes. Networking works and we can use your help. Like our RAIN Networking Facebook page and share to help our networking pets find homes!

Kids Camps 2016

Juan Vendrell TcRanch Horsemanship gave a lesson on handling and saddling horses. The students then enjoyed riding a horse and going on a hay ride.

Foster Feature: Bambi

TBAR-Rehab-Dog-BambiThank you to Bambi’s foster mom for helping this sweet girl get healthy! Foster homes make all the difference.

“This is a before and today picture of Bambi.. she was the pup we found in a ditch cold and scared. She has come a long way but still has a bit to go. She is the sweetest dog in the world doesn’t bark or jump on the kids or anybody for that matter. SHe loves to be inside in her chair . She is going to be an amazing pet.” – Foster Mom

Thank you Deputy Hale!

TBAR-News-Austin-Co-HaleAustin County Deputy Nathan Hale saw these horses starving and immediately pulled them and brought them to safety. They went to court and had them awarded to rescue to guarantee their safety. They are now in foster homes, gaining weight and getting vet and farrier care. We cannot thank Austin County enough for caring about animals and working toward putting an end to abuse and neglect in their county.

Stumpy Goes to School!

TBAR-Stumpy-Goes-to-SchoolToday was a big day for Stumpy! It was his first day of school. He’ll be going to First Step Training in Brenham for the next two weeks so he can earn his Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification. Once he’s certified as a CGC he’ll be able to go to elementary schools so children can read to him. This wonderful program will help children become confident readers while learning compassion and empathy for animals! Stumpy will be True Blue Animal Rescue’s first CGC reading dog.
