ASPCA Grant for Horse Rescue

The ASPCA has awarded TBAR a $15,000 grant which will allow us to take in neglected horses that were ordered removed from their homes. The case is ongoing, but without support from organizations like the ASPCA, TBAR and our foster homes would not be able to step up and help law enforcement and these poor animals in need.

Thank you, ASPCA!

RAIN Networking Facebook Page

TBAR-Rain-Page-Reminder-2016True Blue Animal Rescue hosts a page called RAIN Networking. We use that page to network Rescue Animals In Need. That means they haven’t been officially accepted into TBAR because they don’t have a foster home so we ‘network for a home’ We do pay for spay / neuter if they aren’t fixed but we list them before that’s done to find a foster or adopter quickly. We post with the contact for the person who has the animal so we don’t always hear back to find out if they found a home. This week we did hear that these two DID find homes. Networking works and we can use your help. Like our RAIN Networking Facebook page and share to help our networking pets find homes!

Rain Update and Photos of Diva and Baby

TBAR-Diva-Baby-1

Despite all the rain in Washington Co some of us are warm and dry and thankful for what we have. Diva and her baby, Prince, along with all the other animals at True Blue Animal Rescue are safe. We have plenty of feed and dry land and our electricity is back on so we have water now too! We are praying for everyone who is not as lucky as we are. Please join us by extending a hand to those who have lost their homes and belongings. We have stopped and handed gift cards to those who have lost everything. Give where you can.

In loving memory of Mary Portele

She was a horse woman and had a passion for these beautiful animals ever since she was a child. She was an eye doctor who practiced in the Houston area. She recently lost her horse but leaves behind her beloved kitty.

Stumpy Graduates School!

TBAR-Stumpy-Graduates-SchoolTrue Blue Animal Rescue’s adopted dog, Stumpy graduated from obedience training at 1st Step Dog Training’s obedience training. He also passed the Good Canine Citizen test so he could be a therapy reading dog at Alton Elementary in Brenham, TX. Thank you Alex Aldama for teaching Stumpy how to be a therapy dog! He spent his first day in school meeting the kids and letting them read to him. Stumpy can now, sit, lie down, stay and come. He doesn’t jump up anymore and he walks well on a leash.
