Update #2: Moonshine

TrueBlueAnimalRescueMoonshineUpdate2Update on Moonshine! This is the horse who was untouchable when he came to us. Now after training at Tbar and a month with Juan Vendrell of TC Ranch Ventures he’s in a new home and will be adopted soon! His new Mom got him a saddle and he’s doing great with that! Hooray for Moonshine!

Happy New Year!

TrueBlueAnimalRescueChristmas2014Happy New Year from the Hodde Family and True Blue Animal Rescue!

The Hodde’s pets are all rescues. They shared their super cute Texas Christmas picture so we could see how well Buddy (aka, Butch), the tan dog on the left, is doing. Buddy was adopted from True Blue Animal Rescue several years ago, and as you can see, he’s happy and loved in his new family.

You can help us make 2015 a great year by donating, fostering, or adopting!

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: Tina!

This weeks Success Story is Tina. and it’s a Christmas Blessing.

Tina’s New Mom sent this message:

Tina had a long talk with Santa this year.

She said she really wanted to stay in her foster home forever.

Santa couldn’t resist those eyes... and the snuggles every evening by the fire. So Santa said, “Come stay with me”.

Along with her BFF Jenny, who was also adopted from TBAR, her job will be to help Santa relax after a hard day’s work in the toy shop.

The second picture is Tina with her entire family. Her Dad plays Santa every weekend of Dec each year. Her Mom takes the pictures and all proceeds from their efforts go to True Blue Animal Rescue so more animals can be saved the following year. Her family is the Taylor Family and they are a blessing to rescue animals and especially to True Blue Animal Rescue!

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!

Riding Lessons with Juan

When Dale and Melanie aren’t busy taking care of rescue animals they enjoy taking lessons with Juan Vendrell of TC Ranch Ventures and riding them. Before the lesson Juan spent some time with rescue horses, Comanche and Rock, in the roundpen getting them ready to ride. Riding lessons with Juan are $55 an hour. Juan is a horse trainer too so he’ll work with you and your horse so you can both learn together. For more information go tohttp://www.tcranchhorsemanship.com/
We also have a clinic planned for Feb 14 with Juan at Tbar ranch so mark your calendar and watch for more info on that coming soon!
