Throwback Thursday Success Story: Baby (Sinatra)

Throwback Thursday Success Story True Blue Animal Rescue Texas Sinatra aka Baby

#ThrowbackThursday Success Story

TBAR found this boxer/austrailan shepherd/terrier mix as a stray, took her in, and named her Sinatra. We remember what a beautiful color pattern she had, as well as her bright blue eyes! In 2007 she found her forever home, and this week they sent us an update!

“Just a note to let you know-

This girl went home with me in May 2007. You called her Sinatra, (a terrible name for a sweet girl), so I have called her Baby ever since. She grew to a healthy 55 lb., 18-19″ tall. She is still doing fine in a big fenced yard with a male playmate of her size, a warm bed (under a heat lamp when it’s really cold) in the garage and plenty to eat. She travels well, gets along with my small dogs and loves to be petted. Her blue eyes are still amazing!”

Her owners sent us this update after they received our newsletter this week. We couldn’t be more pleased to received updates like this from forever homes! It warms our hearts and helps us to keep rescuing when we see the good lives these animals get to live. Our thanks for sending us the updated information on Baby!

Success Story Wednesday: Penny and Rusty

True-Blue-Animal-Rescue-Texas-Success-Stories-Rusty-PennyPenny was taken into TBAR when her owners could no longer keep her and she was at risk of being surrendered to a high kill rate shelter. Normally TBAR tries to work with owners to network their unwanted pets and find them a new home, but in this case there was no other option. Penny had puppies, and all of her puppies were found homes and Penny had to wait a bit longer for her perfect family to find her. Thankfully they did, and Penny is now living happily ever after with her human and doggy siblings!

Rusty was also adopted last week! Rusty was abandoned at a shelter and terrified. The shelter has a high euthanasia rate so they contacted us to see if we would take him. Luckily someone came forward to foster him. The same family quickly fell in love with Rusty and decided to adopt. You can see what bad shape Rusty was in before he went to his foster family, and how great he is doing now after their love and care helped him heal! He even has a boy of his own to play with in his forever home!

Thank you to everyone who has opened their hearts and homes to these two dogs! If you or someone you know is looking for a new furry family member, please view our dogs, cats, and horses available for adoption, and take a look at our adoption policies and procedures. We are always in need of new foster homes as well! If you have any questions, you can contact help@t-bar.org or call 936-878-2349 and one of our volunteers will get back to you as soon as they can!

Throwback Success: Eddie!

Eddie is our Merry Christmas Throwback Thursday. Eddie came to True Blue Animal Rescue when he was one week old. He was bottle fed and cared for in a foster home and then adopted into a wonderful family. Here he is with his family for Christmas. He was bigger than what they were looking for but they gave him a chance anyway and he turned out to be perfect for their family.

With the help of Eddie and his new family we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Success Story Wednesday True Blue Animal Rescue Dog Adopted Honey

Animal Adoption: Honey

Success Story Wednesday True Blue Animal Rescue Dog Adopted Honey

Success Story Wednesday!

Here is Honey, who has found her forever home! You can see her here showering her new mom with kisses. Any time her new mom left the car she would cry for her – she knew they belonged together!

Honey was a female dachshund mix who was rescued from a shelter by one of our TBAR volunteers. This sweet young puppy quickly earned the heart of her foster Mom’s own mother, who decided to adopt Honey! It is always a great treat when a rescued dog gets to stay in the family.

Hooray for Honey! Thanks Shellie for rescuing her!

#TBT: Earlier this year TBAR stepped in and saved this Mama Chihuaha and her litter of pups with the help ofHouston, Save Lives is our Mission. We had a great foster home volunteer, Michelle Wessels Marburger, who offered to take them all in. Now, months later, all are happy and healthy and in FURever homes! And that includes the two that stole their hearts of their foster family and were adopted by them

Thank you everyone who hand a hand in saving this litter, and especially Michelle and her family for stepping up to foster and working hard to find homes for them all! We couldn’t save lives without our foster homes!

Here are our recent success stories, Indy and Believer!

Indy just got adopted last week. You can see him here with his new mom (don’t they look happy together)! Indy was one of 57 horses taken in through law enforcement due to abuse and neglect. We’re just thrilled that he finally found his forever home with Susan!

Believer is the paint horse out in the pasture with his new pasture mates. His mother was seized due to abuse and neglect and he was born in TBAR. Now, as a well behaved three-year-old he has finally found his new home too!

Thank you to all of the TBAR volunteers that fed, cared for, and helped socialize and train these beautiful horses so they could find their forever home! And many thanks to their new families for opening their hearts and pastures!

Success Story: Sable!

Sable_SuccessStory_TBAR

Today’s Throwback Thursday is Sable! This tiny little kitten was taken in by a wonderful foster home who has bottled babies before. Bottle feeding puppies and kittens is very hard with a very low survival rate for the babies. Sable is one of the lucky ones. Thank you Simone Belota for fostering Sable! Now he’s a healthy adopted kitten. Hooray for Sable!
