TBAR Speaks to Aggieland Rotary Club

AggielandRotary2As a part of our Community outreach and involvement TBAR often gives presentations to different groups to spread the TBAR mission and message while possibly setting up future partnerships. These presentations help to grow awareness about improving the treatment of animals in our community.

TBAR was pleased to have several of our members attend a meeting of the Aggieland Rotary club this past Thursday, February 27, from 11:30am-1:00pm at Traditions Country Club in Bryan, Texas. Our Marketing and Events Coordinator, Linda Taylor, gave an informative presentation complete with slideshow covering the TBAR goal of improving the treatment of animals through education and communication.

The members of the Rotary seemed very engaged and interested and we were pleased that a few of them have already inquired about becoming foster and adoptive homes. In addition, shortly after the event TBAR’s Facebook page passed 3000 followers! We are very excited to have crossed this milestone so we can continue to make an impact for better animal treatment in the Brazos Valley area!

Chili Cook Off 2014

This January was the 3rd Annual Chili Cook Off hosted by Independence Harley Davidson in College Station, Texas, benefiting the animals at TBAR.  It was also TBAR’s 10th Birthday!  This year we had even more participants and volunteers and raised even more money for the Animals!

 

In addition to the concession stand, silent auction, horse and dog demonstrations, kid zones, and (of course) people’s choice chili judging, people could also have fun on our new “Pony Hops”.

Horse Day Sep 19, 2013

With the upcoming Fall Fun Day, TBAR had a bunch of volunteers come out and work with the ABLE horses. The volunteers are very important in making sure that TBAR is able to have horses for the kids camps – they give the horses attention, care, and a chance to practice riding!

Success! Horseman’s Market Day

Horse event

True Blue Animal Rescue had a great turnout for the Horseman’s Market Day (The Horseman’s Flea Market) on Saturday, August 17, 2013 (sponsored by the Brazos Valley Driving and Riding Club) at 5827 Leonard Road in Bryan, Texas.  TBAR volunteers showed up with all sorts of horse-related items that had been donated throughout the year to be sold at this event for fundraising.

Horse event6

Our volunteers worked the event from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, knowing that their time and efforts were raising money that would go directly to the care of TBAR animals.  Fundraising and donations go straight to vet bills, food, and shelter, and allow TBAR to say “yes” to the next abused or neglected animal that they receive a call to help.

Horse event2

TBAR members were thrilled to have made $1883 at the event!  This amount is equal to the cost of vet bills and feed for nearly a month at TBAR!  One of the reasons we were able to earn so much was because of a generous donation – a horse trailer!  We would like to thank all the people who donated items (big and small), all the volunteers that worked the event, and Moore Photography for volunteering their skills to document this event so we could share it with the rest of you!

Horse event7

If you are interested in helping, you can donate via PayPal, or e-mail us at help@t-bar.org to donate items for our next market day, or sign up to volunteer!  In the upcoming year we will be rolling out a new volunteering program that will allow more members of the community to help TBAR animals!
