We would like everyone to meet our newest addition to The Rescue for PTSD family – ROMEO! “Romy” was adopted to be a canine partner for one of our Monthly Group Training Program Veterans, but will stay with us for a few months to get some basic obedience under his collar before he goes to his Veteran. We are so happy to have a new foster (also a Marine Veteran!), Trenton, who is going to be working with Romy. We would like to thank Lani’s Lucky Shepherds of Houston for having yet another fantastic dog for us to adopt! More to come on Romy’s progress in the coming weeks!
We are so thankful to recognize Texas Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4 for another generous donation to our Monthly Group Program! This is so timely as we have recently adopted THREE new dogs for our Group Program Veterans and the veterinary bills are adding up. We could not run this program without such amazing supporters like these. Thank you so much, and repeated thanks to Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2427 for letting us use their Post for class!
Say hello to Remi, our newly-rescued service dog in training! Remi was adopted to be the canine companion for Doug, one of the Veterans participating in our Monthly Group Training Program. It will still be a few months before Remi can go to his new home with Doug (thank you Ken Frantz for fostering yet ANOTHER amazing pup for us), as he is undergoing heartworm treatment and recuperating from the situation he was rescued from. HUGE thanks to Susan Matson and the Gleannloch Farms Pets group for taking him in after he was left tied to a tree in the backyard when his previous owners moved away. In addition to taking him in and fostering until we found out about him, they got him started with all his vaccinations and are helping to pay for his heartworm treatment. Thank you so much! Remi & Doug participated in our Group lesson last Saturday and did a fantastic job! He is a smart and VERY sweet dog so it will be no time before he & Doug are achieving their goals! As with all our “kids”, stay tuned for more updates on REMI!
Hops and Hounds for Heroes next Saturday, July 3rd is going to be PAWsome! Sgt. Stubby’s IPA has been brewing at Launchpad Brewery and will be released July 3rd! First 100 veterans or active duty using this link will receive their first beer on Schomburg Insurance! Starting at 12, we will be FUNdraising for Black Ops Rescue and The Rescue for PTSD in the BARKing lot with prizes, games and even a service dog showcase at 1:00. Join this PUPortunity to celebrate our veterans and these veteran dog organizations and veteran owned business! Thank you to Yakima Chief, Country Malt and Queener Law-Colorado for helping make this event happen! Well behaved pups and kids are welcome!
We are so blessed to have ANOTHER perfect pairing with one of our full training dogs and his Veteran. Mark Krotzer and Major are a fantastic team, and Major is going to be living his best life as Mark’s service dog. They had an incredible transition over 4 days and Major is fitting right in with Mark’s family already! Stay tuned to their webpage as they are already out and about on adventures. Welcome to the family Mark & Melanie! Thank you again to Cindy Fitzgerald with AARF Houston for always keeping an eye out for great dogs for us, and letting us know this fantastic pup was available for adoption in January!
We have another GREAT success! Apollo and his Veteran Phillip graduated our Monthly Group Training Program this month (June 2021)! Apollo has come a long way from his previous life where he lived chained outside of a warehouse. We are so excited for him and Phillip with this new chapter in their lives! Phillip is giving Apollo the best home we could have asked for and Apollo has made a significant impact in Phillip’s life. Stay tuned for updates on their adventures!
