Success Story: Nina

TBAR-Success-Nina-Dog-AdoptedThe chili cookoff at Independence Harley Davidson was a great fundraiser and a fabulous adoption day too! Our dogs got a lot of attention and this sweet girl, Nina, found her forever family too! Here’s a picture of Nina with her new Mom and Dad and brother Jack. If it all works out Nina’s new name might be Jill. (Jack and Jill) How cute is that!
Please consider adopting one of our rescue pets. Go to and take a look at the dogs, cats and horses that are waiting for their forever home.

Success Story: Patrick and Barbie

TBAR-Adopted-Patrick-Barbie-HorsesHappy 2016 everyone! Just after Christmas we had the joy of moving Patrick and Barbie, the two feed lot Belgians, to their new home. They are enjoying vast pastures of grass at their fabulous new home. Paul heard about them after our facebook post and since he already adopted a PMU draft breed horse from us 10 years ago, he decided to add these two to his farm. I can’t wait to see Patrick and Barbie gain full health too!! Every time you adopt, rescues have room to take in another animal. Adopting saves lives so adopt, don’t shop.

Success Story: Peaches

TBAR-Success-Peaches-Dog-AdoptedThis sweet little dog was abandoned at the shelter in Harris Co, Texas. She was emaciated and had no chance of surviving in a shelter. A True Blue Animal Rescue foster home offered to take her in and help her find a home. Her transporters named her Peaches because she was so sweet. Two weeks later this precious girl was feeling much better and at an adoption day when Elissa and Shane saw her and fell in love. Peaches is named Shasta now and couldn’t be more happy in her new home with her new family. Shasta would like to thank all the people who helped her get to safety and to those who donated toward her care. She’s one of the lucky ones and she knows it! Please consider adopting. Go to and see if we have one you’d like to adopt.

Success Story: Paco

TBAR-Adopted-Dog-PacoPaco came to True Blue Animal Rescue after being picked up as a stray. He lived in a foster home for the last three months learning to live with and trust a family. When Juan saw him on the web site he knew it was the dog for him and that was confirmed when he came out to meet Paco. Hooray for Paco and Juan!

Success Story: Betty

TBAR-Adopted-Dog-BettyPoor Betty has been through a lot. She started out at a shelter in Wharton headed toward euthanasia when a foster home agreed to take her. They ended up moving and couldn’t take her with them so she went into a boarding kennel. Poor Betty is small dog aggressive making her harder to find a home for. We weren’t sure how things would end up for Betty when Baileys’ adopter, Melody, contacted us about fostering and possibly adopting if it works out. When she came to meet some of the other dogs Betty had just returned from boarding. She was skinny and sad but Melody decided to give her a chance anyway. Lucky Betty, Bailey and Melody!!

Success Story: Gracie

TBAR-Adopted-Dog-GracieRemember Gracie? She was the boxer mix that was pulled from BARC. She was balding, sad and miserable with no chance for survival till a kind hearted person pulled her and rehabilitated her through True Blue Animal Rescue. After her rehab she came to TBAR Ranch until her forever family found here. We received these pictures reminding us that it’s been one year since she was adopted! Thanks for the pictures Sherrie!

Success Story: Shelter Shih Tzu

TBAR-Adopted-Shih-TzuTrue Blue Animal Rescue pulled this little dog from BARC. This 10 month old Shih Tzu was dirty, matted and sad. She also has weak back legs that go out from under her when she runs and plays. After a thorough vet evaluation we were pleased to find out she has a birth defect in her hips that causes her no pain. After that report and a nice haircut at Fabulous in Fur, Janet decided to adopt! It does our heart good to know this little sweetheart is getting the love and care she deserves. Adopt, don’t shop!

Success Story: Macy

TBAR-Adopted-Dog-MacyMacy was a stray when a True Blue Animal Rescue member decided to save her life and foster. She’s a small bully breed, housebroken, friendly and great with kids yet nobody adopted her. She ended up staying in foster care for months. We found ourselves wondering why nobody wanted to adopt this wonderful dog but we’re pretty sure Macy knew why. Her foster family was falling more in love with her every day and Macy was doing her best to make that happen. When someone finally did ask about adopting her the foster family realized that they couldn’t let her go. We call that foster failure but for Macy it’s a huge win. You can tell by her smiling face that she couldn’t be happier! Thank you Casie and Cody for fostering and failing. We couldn’t be happier for the whole family!
