Tributes

Over the years, Forgotten Friends РMixed Breed Rescue, has had many special friends pass through our proverbial doors. This page was set up to honor the rescued and their families, of all species.


MarkMark

Mark was abandoned at the Town Lake Animal Center by his guardians of eight years to be killed because they found he had heartworms and no longer wanted him. He was a sweet and kind little sable Sheltie with a heart of gold. That heart just couldn’t carry him far because of a horrible case of heartworms.

Mixed Breed Rescue chose to rescue Mark and give him treatment or, at least, dignity in his passing. Unfortunately it turned out to be the latter, as his case was too advanced; he died at his foster’s home. He was buried in her back yard with his favorite things: a box of Velveeta cheese, his collar, tag, and toys.

We want Mark to be remembered and to have his legacy be that others have the chance that he didn’t have — the chance to have a healthy heart and a long life.

Heartworms are easily prevented! Please visit our heartworm information page to learn more.
