As many of you know, I am one of the Co-Founders of RPM and this year, I am dedicating my fundraiser to my sweet senior Sam. We rescued Sam and his little family back in 2004 when the save rate was around 5% at BARC. They were born off the side of 288 at a construction site, right here in Houston, when we rescued them along with their siblings and mom. As a shy, scared, chow mix family, they didn't have a chance at the shelters back then but TODAY, they would be perfect candidates for RPM's program. Today, as a 13 year old senior, Sam is another perfect example of the “harder” dogs and cats that RPM saves reach day from death row. Seniors, along with countless dogs and cats that are injured, sweet puppies and kitties with medical issues, moms and babies and other “hard” animals now make it out the front door of BARC to new homes and lives in places like Colorado, Wisconsin and Canada! Today, with RPM’s help, BARC save rate has topped over 90% for several months, literally flipping the old save rate of just 5% on its head. Since October 2013, RPM has saved over 20,000 animals from death row from BARC and has recently expanded to help Harris County Animal Shelter.
Please take a moment to make a donation, however big or small, in honor of your beloved pet or pet lover, past or present, and pay it forward to those who cannot speak for themselves. This is RPM’s largest fundraiser of the year and it ends this Thursday, June 1st at 12:59 pm so PLEASE DON’T wait and make your donation today.
You may wonder why in the world I am just sending this out a few days before the fundraiser ends. Unfortunately, I have been very sick and was in ICU for a week and still recovering but this fundraiser is so important to getting RPM the funds it needs to continue saving the MANY homeless animals that won’t make it without our help. I am hoping there is still a little time to help me reach my fundraising goal and help RPM continue their lifesaving work.
Here's to 20,000 saved and the next 20,000 to come! We can't do it without everyone's help and support! Thank you!!
Cindy, Johnny, Sam, Ruger and Hunter
