OUR RESCUE DOGS DON’T DESERVE JUST BETTER LIVES, BUT THE GREATEST LIVES EVER!
Dear supporters and friends of The Forgotten Dog Foundation,
This has been a challenging year for our rescue organization, but we prevailed. 2019 was our year of saving mostly senior, shelter and medical dogs. We were very glad to have helped them all – many were dogs that no-one else would step up for, and our medical and veterinary costs far exceeded previous years. As a result, we are in need of your support now more than ever.
We are, of course, so very grateful to all of you who helped throughout the year with donations to assist some of these costly medical dogs. A big thanks to you all.
We would greatly appreciate your commitment and support to help us in 2020, so that we may continue to rescue the truly forgotten dogs that are old, injured, impaired and broken. We also rescued a large number of Chihuahua’s of all ages, that many consider hard to place. The shelters in Greater Los Angeles are inundated with this breed. Chihuahuas also make up a large percentage of strays on the streets. Sadly, along with Pitbulls, Chihuahuas, and Chi mixes, are the most euthanized in our city and county shelters. We also never forget about the bully breeds and currently have 5 with fosters in our organization that all need forever homes.
On a brighter note, we found wonderful homes for many of our dogs this year, and we will share some pics and happy endings.
As you know, all of our dogs live in foster homes. None are in caged facilities. We pride ourselves on first-class vet care, hands-on attention, grooming, healthy food – often home cooked by our fosters, and we never give up on a single dog, no matter how long it takes to find them a forever home. Home checks and two-week trial periods are required for every dog that gets adopted. We take back any dog that does not work out, even years later. We also do not believe in ever splitting up bonded pairs. Dogs with behavioral issues all go to our trainers before they are placed. This is our tenth year as a foundation and our motto remains quality rescue, with no corners ever cut. It is our belief that every dog we save does not just deserve a better life, but the greatest life ever!
Thank you for helping us to give these dogs THE GREATEST LIVES EVER!
Wishing you and your loved-ones, and furry family members a happy holiday season and all the best for 2020.
