TBAR Happenings

Say "hello" to Blue. This sweet young hound was found wandering in the country, limping and very skinny. He was picked up, taken to the vet and it was found that he had a high break in one of his hind legs, most likely having been hit by a car. After weeks of mending, the cast is off and he can put on some weight to be ready for adoption. Blue's vet bill was$800, so if you are interested in donating to Blue's Fund, visit our website:, or call (936) 878-2349.


Did you know that 80% of dogs hit by cars are unneutered males? It's sad, but true, and one of the many reasons that all pets should be spayed or neutered. This past spring (March - April), TBAR offered a Spay/Neuter Rebate and was very successful in getting many of the area pets spayed or neutered.
cat spay - 62
cat neuter - 37
dog spay - 64
dog neuter - 32
Total - 195 EXCELLENT!1
Now that our new Spay/Neuter Clinic (The Connie Clinic) is open, we hope to need to do this less often as a low cost option is now available here in Washington County.
Recent Events ~
Over the past couple of months, TBAR has had some successful events and raised some much needed money to pay for the vet and feed bills of the TBAR animals.
Country Flavors Festival in Downtown Brenham - thanks to the many volunteers who showed up to help and to the nieces and nephews of Kathryn Turnbull who raised over $400 with their money jars, asking people in the crowd to help the animals.
July 4th at Fireman's Park - thanks to Ann, Teresa, Lauren, John, and Milly, Elizabeth, Melanie, Kathryn, and Laura Gomes for manning this event. It was a very successful fundraising day for TBAR. We also had a TBAR celebrity present - the recently adopted Popeye, who won the Best Dog contest.
Brenham Hospice - recently had a food drive for TBAR to keep our animals fed.
Thank You to all involved.
