EVENT: Saving Pets Challenge 2015
To date, Sunjay & I have fostered 34 puppies and kittens that would not have had a chance had it not been for this group. We are honored and proud to be part of the RPM team and hope you will help us in raising funds so they can do even more to help Houston’s homeless population.

Thank you in advance for your support!
Rescued Pets Movement’s mission is to provide 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. RPM was conceived in Houston, Texas. Depressed and exhausted from trying to save pets with no room or funding, the founders created RPM to bring the supply in Houston to the demand in other states. After working with various traditional rescue groups for many years, RPM’s founders came to realize that the best way to save these dogs and cats is to build solid relationships with reputable shelters and rescue groups in Houston and in areas of the United States where pet overpopulation does not exist and then arrange transportation to get the animals there. To that end, RPM partnered with the Houston city pound and has helped change the face of rescue in Houston. Because of this partnership, in just over 1.5 years, RPM has saved more than 6,000 death-row dogs and cats and has been instrumental in increasing the pound’s save rate from a mere 45% to a high of 82%.
Because of its innovative program and the thousands of hours invested by RPM’s volunteers and foster families, there is now actually hope in Houston for our homeless pets. Although the save rate at the city pound is slowly climbing, Houston is still a long way off from being anything like that second city. RPM still has much more work to do. There are more animals waiting to find their second chance. We hope you will join our movement and help us move pets home.
