Healthy Paint Babies born to previously neglected Horses
Two months after being seized due to neglect and starvation, 8 mares gave birth to healthy foals.
The foster homes worked hard and diligently to get weight on the starved mares and pump nutrients into them, hoping to save the babies. Prayers were answered, when one by one, healthy babies were born. One foal, Cartier, had a difficult first couple of days, but then turned the corner and is doing well.
After a drawn out appeal process, concluding with a rigorous two-day court hearing, ALL the horses - including the babies - were permanently awarded to TBAR on May 18th.
THANK YOU to all the foster homes and all our supporters for making this rescue & ongoing rehabilitation possible!

Dear Members and Friends,
Spring and early Summer has been very busy for True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR). After a long appeal process, TBAR was finally awarded the original 27 Wood County neglected horses, plus the 8 babies born healthy because of our fabulous foster homes! Second, TBAR was awarded six neglected horses from Burleson County that were skinny and/or had 'elf' hooves. In addition, Hemmingway, a senior horse, came to TBAR when he was found estray and no owner claimed him. Whew! And that's just the horse side of TBAR rescue!
THANK YOU for your continued support of TBAR! Your donations of time, energy and money made it possible for TBAR to assist these animals. We're still paying off the huge vet bills resulting from the seizures and rehabiliating the skinny horses; and we know that all will be fine because of our FANTASTIC supporters! Read the animal's amazing stories below and see how, because of you, they are getting a second chance!
THANK YOU for being a Member and for making all these things possible!

Marmalade & Patches - Adoptable Kittens
Maisy was already struggling all on her own to provide for her kittens, and then she sustained an injury rendering her front leg useless. A TBAR foster home volunteer found them and cared for them all. The boy Zane, a stunning gray with white mittens, and Marmalade & Patches (the beautiful calico girls) are now about 8-9 wks. old, weaned, socialized, and ready for forever homes.
TBAR also has two kittens about 6 wks. old and a sweet and lovely gray tabby mama cat and two tabby kittens. Please consider adopting a pair. They keep each other company and bring you twice the joy. TBAR will discount the adoption fee for a second or third cat or kitten.
For more about these kittens, and the other animals at TBAR, contact us at 936-878-2349 or visit the website at www.t-bar.org to see more photos.
Ciera, Sophia & Fabio- Adoptable Puppies
These darling puppies were stuffed in a plastic container and (illegally) dumped off in the countryside. Fabio, Sophia, & Ciara are about 12 weeks old now and are a small-boned all American mix-breed who will grow to about 30 lbs. They have beautiful markings: black coats with striking symmetrical tan marks on their faces, ears, chest, and legs, along with cute little white paws. They are a wonderful age for bringing into your home and making them a member of your family. They are still a bit timid but only need to be loved, cuddled, and shown how nice people can be, to earn their trust and devotion. For more about these puppies and the other animals at TBAR, contact us at 936-878-2349 or visit the website at www.t-bar.org to see current color photos.
Merlot & Cabernet - Adoptable Horses
Two of ten skinny paint weanlings and yearlings awarded to TBAR from Wood County neglect case, Merlot and Cabernet are quickly putting on weight and discovering that people are a good thing! Pictured here at their foster home, kicking up their heels. For more information, go to www.t-bar.org , email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 936- 878-2349
