Rescued Pets Movement Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3)* all-volunteer organization that transports animals from Houston and Greater Houston area shelters to other 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal welfare organizations that have demand 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 is to build solid relationships with reputable shelters and rescue groups here and in areas of the U.S. where pet overpopulation isnt such a dire issue, and then arrange transportation to get the animals there. Not only is this the best way to save Houstons shelter pets from euthanasia, but we believe it will be the impetus in helping Houston shelters become no-kill shelters. Working with BARC in late summer of 2013 alone, Rescued Pets Movement has saved more than 450 pets by transporting them to Colorado.
