Success Story Update: Junebug!

TBAR-Adoption-Update-JunebugWho remembers Junebug? Several years ago we received a call from law enforcement asking us if we could take this horse. She was emaciated and had both old and new injuries. You can still see where she must have been hit so hard her ribs were broken. We named this sweet mare Junebug. Despite all the hardships she had endured this mare remained gentle and loving. Eventually she gained the weight but her story wasn’t over till her very special person found her and adopted her. Just look at the love between these two.

Thank you for adopting her and taking such good care of her Madison! Here’s what Madison has to say about Junebug now:
“She still loves children, she loves to go full speed when you ride, she loves carrots apples and the apple flavored treats we give her, she also loves cantaloupe rind too, shes not scared of guys anymore either!”

If you would like to adopt a sweet rescue horse we have several that are ridable and waiting for their forever person. Please email [email protected] or call 936-878-2349 for more information

Happy Tails: Piper

TBAR-Texas-Happy-Tails-PiperLast week we shared Piper and his post-skunk encounter crazy hair as our #TBARFluff and we wanted to follow that up with a look back at how far he has come, and how happy he is now in his forever home! Here’s Piper, before and after. This poor dog was abandoned and starving in the streets. He’s a small dog and survived by hiding in a culvert Pipe in a driveway. Lucky for him one kind person couldn’t look away and made it her business to catch him and get him help. She became his foster Mom and then adopted. Here he is spoiled and happy in his new home. A true rags to riches story!

Happy Tails: Savannah

True-Blue-Animal-Rescue-TBT-Savannah-2015Throwback Thursday Happy Tails! We received this wonderful update from a past adopter, with an update on the dog she adopted from TBAR!

Hi All,

Below are pictures of our puppy Savannah (she was originally named Delilah), we got her from TBar in February 2010.  We first saw her at one of your adoption events at Petsmart in College Station.  

The first picture is Savannah with my husband Mike at Teresa’s place where we went to see her a second time before officially adopting.  In two of the pictures she is with her brother we got from animal control in 2012.

They are both wild and crazy and so much fun but Savannah is also the sweetest little girl you will meet.  I call her my little girl, she is 85lbs, she’s been such a sweetheart and blessing to our family.

Thank you for all you do!!  I couldn’t image our lives without Savannah 🙂

BBB Ranch has been a longtime supporter of TBAR. They have just sent us photos of their fosters and adopted horses! Here you can see Red, Prissy Kisses, Erkle, and Cheyenne! Thank you for sharing the photos, and thank you for caring for these horses!

Happy Tails: Rocky

True-Blue-Animal-Rescue-Throwback-Success-RockyDo you remember the surprise litter of puppies that came from our senior rescue, Sage, this past summer? Well here is the little boy of the litter, Rocket Raccoon! He has turned into a beautiful dog, and is very happy in his new forever home! He now goes by the name of “Rocky”!

We love it when our adoptive homes share updates, it is a thrill for us to see how much the animals have grown and adjusted in their new families, and it gives us the motivation to keep going with animal rescue. Please send us your updates to [email protected] and we would love to share them with our Facebook family!

Success Stories: Patrick


Patrick was found on the streets of Bellville with his buddy, Roxie. These two were starving, homeless and in need of veterinary care. True Blue Animal Rescue took them into their foster program and sent them straight to the vet to for a full exam, deworming and vaccinations.

Puppies 3

Patrick thrived in his foster home with his dog and cat siblings. He loved chewing his toys while laying in his doggie bed or running around the yard playing with his doggie friend, Jack.

Patrick needed a few months to regain weight and adjust to being part of a family, but he was finally ready to find his forever home. It didn’t take long for someone to meet Patrick and fall head-over-heels for this sweet little boy. Now, Patrick has his own family and will even have a new fur-brother to play with in his big back yard during the day before it’s time to come in for bedtime.
