We lost a very special foster home and True Blue Rescue member this year. Don Werlinger passed away suddenly and well before his time. He will be greatly missed but also remembered through this special gift from Karlene. Thank you for donating this saddle in Don’s memory. Every time a child rides in our Animals Bridge Love and Education program we will think of Don and remember his generous spirit and kindness as a horse foster home. RIP good friend.
The Brownie troop that came to learn about and spend time with our rescue animals sent us the sweetest rescue card and girl scout cookies to thank us for having them out! That made our day. What a great group of girls!!
A very special friend came out and delivered some amazing dog treats for the dogs at True Blue Animal Rescue. These are all natural and long lasting treats that made the dogs very happy! They are quietly chewing and enjoying their special treats and wanted to say Thank You for your thoughtful gift.
These compassionate girls from Brownie troop 09045 brought food and treats for the animals of True Blue Animal Rescue and then had some fun interacting with and learning about them.
We have outdoor kennels and play yards for the dogs to exercise in. The kennels have tarp covers that keep them dry but they are still out in the elements for the most part. It doesn’t get cold often in Texas but when it does the dogs go in their dog houses to stay warm. The hardest weather for the dogs is the heat. The tarps provide cover but just not enough to really give them good shade. In addition the tarps often rip and have to be replaced.
A good solid roof would give the dogs more shade coverage to help keep them cooler and protected from the rain. From this well built structure we can build walls to enclose this building and we can add heat and air conditioning for the dogs.
It will cost $10,000 to have the structure and tin roof built over the kennels. This will improve the lives of the hundreds of rescue dogs that we take in each year.
Would you like to help us save more animals? True Blue Animal Rescue needs volunteers to help do inspections for potential horse adoptions. Right now we have two pending horse adoptions that are on hold until someone can go out and inspect the property. It’s our policy to have a non biased volunteer go out and take pictures of the property but we don’t have people in all areas. If you’re in the Dallas area or the San Marcos area and would like to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Other ways you can help:
□ Events (Fundraisers, Adoption Days, Horse Days, etc.)
□ Foster Home (Circle all that apply: dog, cat, horse) (Transport for vaccines, treatment, adoption days)
□ Adoption Coordination (Matching fostered animals with adoptive families)
□ Education & Outreach (Kid Camps, Networking, Investigation, Outreach)
□ Animal Care & Transportation (To/From vet appointments, events, adoptive homes)
□ Marketing (Website/Social Media, Press Releases, Marketing Plans, Physical Media, etc.)
□ Fundraising & Donations (Increase donor base, Collect donated items, Fundraising events, etc.)
□ Inspections (Visiting with potential adopters to see if their facility is safe for animals)
Email us and ask for a volunteer application if you’d like to be part of the True Blue team. email@example.com
We had another visit from one of our favorite friends. This young lady collected food for the animals again and made the trip out to deliver it in person. Thank you Emery for another great supply of horse feed, dog food and dog treats! You are making a difference in the lives of animals!
These two stray horses found a foster home but still need our help. The paint needs to be gelded and the sorrel is a senior horse that needs his teeth floated and hooves trimmed too. On top of that they both need to gain lots of weight. The vet scored the sorrel as a 1.5 at best and the paint is not much more than a 2.5 out of 10. That means they have hundreds of pounds to gain to be healthy. Donate to help with their care on our facebook page or website.
A Special Thank you to all the Officers, Staff, and Volunteers that helped us here at True Blue Animal Rescue during 2016!!
We had 8 instances of our last fundraiser of the year, pet photos with Santa. Thanks to all staff volunteers who coordinate and help with these events!
A great big thank you to the Young Professionals of Washington Co for thinking about the animals of True Blue Animal Rescue by collecting and donating food, treats and a check for them. Pictured on the left is Jennifer Phillips of the Young Professionals, giving a donation to Melanie DeAeth, President, True Blue Animal Rescue.
