Fundraiser: Cover For the Dogs

True Blue Animal Rescue is a 501c3 non profit organization that takes in abused and neglected dogs, rehabilitates them and finds them new homes.

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.

You can donate at GoFundMe. Thank you for your support. All donations are appreciated and all donations are tax deductible.

Puppy Adoptions: Roxy and Riley

Roxy and Riley’s family finally found them! We’re so happy that this brother and sister pair is staying together and will be loved and cared for by their new Mom.
Would you like to adopt? Check out www.t-bar.organd see if your new family member is on our website.

Volunteers needed!

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 help@t-bar.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. help@t-bar.org

Ginger Update: Stitches out

We’re happy to let you know that Ginger, the horse with all the belly cuts, got her stitches out and is doing well. She does have open wounds that need to be cleaned and monitored but she should heal completely in a few more weeks. Please donate to help pay her vet bill by going to www.t-bar.org and using our donate link or mail a check to PO Box 1107, Brenham, TX 77834

Dog adoptions: Kenobi and Tearsa

One adult dog and one puppy were adopted last week. You can see that the little girl dog, now named Kenobi, is going to be loved and spoiled by her adopters and Tearsa has a great new home too. Thank you for adopting instead of shopping. There are so many animals that need loving homes of their own. Go to www.t-bar.org and check out all of our dogs, cats and horses that are waiting.

Rescue Horse Adopted: Dusty

This horse was abandoned and alone. True Blue Animal Rescue took him in so he could get the vet care he needed and go into a foster home. This week his foster Mom decided he was meant to be there forever and adopted him! Hooray for Dusty and his new Mom, Jenni. If you’d like to adopt go towww.t-bar.org and take a look at the horses we have for adoption and consider our Foster to Adopt option.

TBAR Rescue Horse: Guy

Meet TBARs newest horse, Guy. He was found homeless in Washington Co and when nobody claimed him the options were to either send him to auction which would most likely end with slaughter or try and find him a home. His time is running out but we haven’t given up yet. Help us keep this one out of the kill pens! If anyone is looking for a sweet, young horse that would make a great pasture pet or horse to train to ride, email help@t-bar.org or call 936-878-2349.

UPDATE: Foster home found!

Rescue Dog: Stella

One of our wonderful foster homes went to Brenham Animal Services to volunteer and bring some donations. While she was there she met this beautiful dog named Stella. Poor Stella had some tumors on her side and belly, she was heart worm positive and she’s not a young dog so her chances for adoption were non existent. Shelli took pictures and together we tried to network for a foster home. Shelli already has a house full of pets and knew it would be a challenge to take her home but when nobody offered to foster or adopt Stella she decided to go back and get her and do the rehabilitation so she’d be healthy and have a better chance of being adopted. 

Here’s Stella now. She’s spayed, on heart worm treatment and her tumors have been removed. As soon as we get the results of the biopsies and she’s fully healed she’ll go up for adoption. Thank you for saving a life Shelli. This may not make a difference for all the dogs but for this one dog, it made ALL the difference. Save a life, foster or adopt.

UPDATE: Stella’s tumors were benign except one and Dr. Philips got all of that one out so she is cancer free and will go up for adoption soon!!
