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!

Success Story: Star

TBAR-Adopted-Dog-StarRemember Star? she was in the streets, alone and afraid. Lots of people walked past her but nobody would help till Gisele saw her and couldn’t get her out of her mind. . She went back and took it upon herself to rescue this poor hairless dog. She treated her demodex and showed her what it was like to be loved. Gisele planned to put her up for adoption when she was healthy but before too long it was obvious that a bond had been made and Star was there to stay. Just look at Miss Star with Gisele on vacation. You can see the happiness and love. It is with joy in our hearts that we are announcing this foster failure. Hooray for Gisele and Star. Please consider fostering or adopting. Go to and look at all the animals that are waiting for their forever homes.

Success Story: Lexi!

TBAR-Texas-Animal-Rescue-LexiLook who went to a new home this week! Lexi, now named Daisy went to live with another True Blue Rescue dog, Sully! This is a great family and so far Daisy is fitting right in. She can’t believe that all those toys could be for her! Foster homes are nice but all rescue animals dream of a forever home all their own. We have a lot more puppies looking for homes. If you’re thinking about adopting go to and take a look.

Pet of the Week: Nova Prime

Nova_True Blue Animal Rescue Puppy TBAR-Pet-of-The-Week-Adoptable-Dog-Nova-PrimeThe pet of the week is Nova Prime. What a great name for a pretty dog. Nova Prime is housebroken and barks at the back door when she needs to go out. She uses her crate when we are not at home and she sleeps in her crate at night. Otherwise, she enjoys company and lays on the rug near to where we are. She loves children and playing with other dogs. She is taken for a nice walk daily. Her build is low to the ground. She weighs around 65 lbs. Nova Prime is an adult female, large. She is a Hound/Boxer, up to date with routine shots and is spayed. T-Bar has a lot of animals that are waiting for their forever home.

If this pet of the week, is not the pet you are interested in, we probably have just about any pet you could want. T-BAR is a no-kill rescue. Not only do we like having our animals adopted out, we also are in dire need of foster homes. That way we can help more animals out there, who are in perilous times alone on the streets. Please save a life by adopting a pet, instead of buying a pet and please have all your pets spayed and neutered. It is the right thing to do. If you are interested on where you can help or to look at all that is available to either adopt or foster, please go to and see all the animals that deserve a second chance and fulfilled life full of love, email [email protected] or call (936)878-2349 and one of our volunteers will get back to you as soon as possible. Adoption Fee: Please email [email protected] for adoption fee! Adoption fee includes neuter or spay, up to date vaccinations, heartworm tested if old enough or started on heartworm prevention as a puppy, deworming and a one year TBAR membership.

Event Recap: Community Workshop with Alley Cat Allies

TBAR-Alley-Cat-Allies-WorkshopTrue Blue Animal Rescue hosted a free seminar to educate the community about how to help cats while controlling the population on Sat June 27th.The group picture was taken at the end of the event to show unification of rescuers moving forward to humanely care for animals in our communities.

Representatives Liz Holtz and Hannah Shaw from Alley Cat Allies out of Maryland flew in to teach us what they know and help us begin a successful Trap, Neuter and Return program in our community. Alley Cat Allies brought facts from studies showing that programs such as these are the only way to control the cat population. Cats have been living in our communities for hundreds of years just as raccoons, squirrels, possums and skunks do. They do not damage, harm or attack humans and their property. As natural hunters Cats help control rodent and snake populations in rural communities. The population can get out of control but killing them or removing them does not solve the problem. When one leaves, another will come and take it’s place. They can be controlled through Trap, Neuter and Return programs. They will be vaccinated when they are fixed and ear tipped so you’ll know which cats are done. Once they are fixed and returned they are no longer breeding, fighting, multiplying and they are disease free and vaccinated. They will stay in their own colony and live peacefully among the other animals and humans. We ended the seminar with Amy reading Tiger’s story so we wouldn’t forget him and would carry on to help other cats in his memory.

This program will take manpower and money. True Blue Animal Rescue volunteers have begun the process for our community and we started a fund called Tiger’s fund so we can pay to spay, neuter and vaccinate all the cats we’ll be helping. If you’d like more information go or If you’d like to help in Washington Co or your community email [email protected] or call 936-878-2349 and we’ll tell you how!
