Success Story Update: True Seven (now Pablo)

TBAR-Success-Throwback-PabloNothing makes us happier than to hear from people who have adopted in the past and send us pictures of their rescue kids with their forever family. Here’s one of those pictures that touches my heart in a special way. Pablo Redcloud aka True Seven, Picasso and Tejas came to TBAR as a baby. He went to several foster homes and was even adopted but he had some bad habits that were tough to break and he managed to out smart his people every single time. The last time he came back we sent him to Juan Vendrell for training and that helped a lot but his antics were still too much for the next adopter too. Even though Pablo was too much for them they didn’t give up on this beautiful boy and sent him to another trainer. This trainer was Otis Dyer. Otis is a gifted trainer who didn’t give up on Redcloud and continued working with him and eventually fell in love with him and decided to adopt him for himself. Here’s what Otis has to say about Redcloud now:
I have really become fond of my rescue horse Pablo Redcloud. He has become a trusted partner and a good friend, plus a fun ride. I’m glad I was able to adopt him, we are a good fit. Thank you Dan Matula and Melanie Hewett-Deaeth for allowing me to adopt him and give him a forever home.

This story warms my heart and is a perfect expression of what Valentine’s Day is all about. We get the animals out of harms way but that’s only part of rescue. The true rescuer is the one who adopts and works through the difficulties a rescue animal might have and loves them unconditionally the way Otis loves Redcloud. Have a heart, adopt, don’t shop. We have lots of dogs, cats and horses that need homes. Go to www.t-bar.org if you want to help rescue an animal.

TBT: Titan and Fire

TBAR-TBT-Cats-Rescue-Titan-FireOnce upon a time these babies were born to a feral momma & abandoned at 2 weeks old. They were crying & cold in tall grass. Found by a sweet young woman. That young woman reached out and found me. She struggled to keep their little flames of life burning. Their sister was lost so she fought to keep the boys alive. Now here they are 2 years old & spoiled boys! Fire was adopted by a sweet little family & Titan was a foster failure!

TBT: Cotton!

TBAR-TBT-Dog-CottonWho remembers Cotton? This fluffy white puppy with apricot ears was dumped with his sister many years ago. Here he is all grown up in his furever home. We love getting update pictures from our adopters. Thank you Kathy!

Happy Tails: Piper

TBAR-Texas-Happy-Tails-PiperLast week we shared Piper and his post-skunk encounter crazy hair as our #TBARFluff and we wanted to follow that up with a look back at how far he has come, and how happy he is now in his forever home! Here’s Piper, before and after. This poor dog was abandoned and starving in the streets. He’s a small dog and survived by hiding in a culvert Pipe in a driveway. Lucky for him one kind person couldn’t look away and made it her business to catch him and get him help. She became his foster Mom and then adopted. Here he is spoiled and happy in his new home. A true rags to riches story!

Happy Tails: Savannah

True-Blue-Animal-Rescue-TBT-Savannah-2015Throwback Thursday Happy Tails! We received this wonderful update from a past adopter, with an update on the dog she adopted from TBAR!

Hi All,

Below are pictures of our puppy Savannah (she was originally named Delilah), we got her from TBar in February 2010.  We first saw her at one of your adoption events at Petsmart in College Station.  

The first picture is Savannah with my husband Mike at Teresa’s place where we went to see her a second time before officially adopting.  In two of the pictures she is with her brother we got from animal control in 2012.

They are both wild and crazy and so much fun but Savannah is also the sweetest little girl you will meet.  I call her my little girl, she is 85lbs, she’s been such a sweetheart and blessing to our family.

Thank you for all you do!!  I couldn’t image our lives without Savannah 🙂

Happy Tails: Rocky

True-Blue-Animal-Rescue-Throwback-Success-RockyDo you remember the surprise litter of puppies that came from our senior rescue, Sage, this past summer? Well here is the little boy of the litter, Rocket Raccoon! He has turned into a beautiful dog, and is very happy in his new forever home! He now goes by the name of “Rocky”!

We love it when our adoptive homes share updates, it is a thrill for us to see how much the animals have grown and adjusted in their new families, and it gives us the motivation to keep going with animal rescue. Please send us your updates to help@t-bar.org and we would love to share them with our Facebook family!

Happy Tails: TBT Sable

True-Blue-Animal-Rescue-Throwback-Thursday-Sable-March-2015Our ‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬ today is Sable! Isn’t he beautiful now! And to think that he started out as a tiny bottle baby that Simone took great care of! Sable is here on our page today to call out for new volunteer foster homes that may be willing to take in cats and kittens this season. If you are thinking about it, please email help@t-bar.org

 

Throwback Thursday: Lucia

PicMonkey Collage LuluLucia, or “Lulu” is a fun Throwback Thursday! She was adopted in 2007 after being fostered by Teresa, one of our Officers and Board members. Eight years later, Lulu’s adoptive family have become a big part of TBAR. Olivia (now a TBAR Officer) and Jason take beautiful pictures of our TBAR animals to help us find them forever homes! You can see Lucia’s photos, the one with the background was her original listing photo (when she was called “Palla”), then the other puppy photo from her foster mom “Can you believe it? Her first picture with us and she blinked!” and then a more recent one: “​Here is one of Lucia, our little angel. One of the few times she did a sitting for me. I was photographing Jack and she decided to play too. I wish she would sit for me more often, she is a beautiful creature.”

We’d love to share your TBAR adoption story with our supporters! Please email help@t-bar.org no matter if you adopted 10 days or 10 years ago. These updates warm our hearts!
