BENEFITING: RESCUED PETS MOVEMENT INC
Recently, Rescued Pets Movement made the difficult decision to close our clinic for four to six months so we could focus on paying outstanding debt owed to creditors and lenders, and also so we could make some much needed repairs to the Jack C. Alexander Building in which our clinic is housed. We need a new hot water heater to replace the tiny one we currently have. The door to our back entrance needs be be redone so water doesn't come in when it rains, as well as the surrounding dry wall, which has water damage. A concrete pad outside of back entrance needs to be added to prevent flooding. We must install vents and UV lights in the kennel areas to help purify air and prevent disease. Installing additional cameras will help us check on animals remotely at all times. And we must purchase a commercial washer and dryer to handle the constant laundry loads. Unfortunately, until these items are fixed, or while they're being fixed (resurfacing the floors will be toxic), our clinic can't house any dogs.
After one month we've already been able to pay off some of our debt, but we need to raise funds to repair the clinic and cover boarding costs that are being incurred because we can't use our clinic. We need our clinic, not only for temporary boarding, but so we can treat dogs and cats with ailments, severe skin irritation, and other minor injuries. The dogs and cats transported to our rescue partners must be healthy before travel. While in foster care they might receive boosters and checkups at our clinic, or are regularly treated for existing conditions such as upper respiratory infections, dermatitis, or other minor ailments that might inhibit their ability to travel. Can you help us? Your donations will help us get back on the road to rehabilitating and moving 500 or more adoptable dogs and cats each month to our out of state rescue partners so they can have a second chance at a forever home! Rescued Pets Movement Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides a second chance for thousands of homeless dogs and cats through rehabilitation and transport to forever homes in communities throughout the country that have a need for adoptable pets. Thousands of dogs and cats are needlessly euthanized in the Greater Houston area each year simply because of pet overpopulation. After working with various rescue groups for many years, the founders of Rescued Pets Movement have come to realize the best way to save these dogs and cats from euthanasia is to build solid relationships with reputable shelters and rescue groups here and in areas of the U.S. where pet overpopulation isn’t such a dire issue, and then arrange transportation to get the animals there. As of April 29, 2016, by partnering with BARC, Rescued Pets Movement has saved more than 13,000 adoptable pets through our transport program.
