About Forgotten Friends

Forgotten Friends started rescue efforts in 1999 taking in mixed breed dogs who would never have found forever homes and remained forgotten. In 2004 we became a 501(c)(3) which enabled us to greatly improve our ability to save more lives and contribute to the happiness of our adopter families. Our goal was and is, to speak for the voiceless, restore them as close as possible to good health, and find forever homes that can commit to their lifetime care.

We are a totally volunteer based group and all of our donations and adoption fees go directly to our dog’s veterinary care, food, heartworm prevention and basic needs. Any donations given to Forgotten Friends are tax deductible.

Puppies and dogs enter our program from area shelters and enter one of our foster homes. The dogs are then cared for by the foster who will work with them on things like house training, if needed, before going to their new forever home.

Our commitment to the potential adopter and to our dogs is to screen all applications carefully to find the very best match between the needs of the adopter and our dog.
