The Forgotten Dog Foundation, a California nonprofit corporation, which is based in Los Angeles, has started the legal process of closing its division in Las Vegas (commonly referred to by those in Las Vegas as “The Forgotten Dog LV”). This division was less than a year old. The Nevada withdrawal documents will be posted as soon as the Nevada Secretary of State returns a filed copy to us. 

PLEASE NOTE AND BEWARE: Any rescue group with the words “The Forgotten Dog” or “Dogs” that is currently operating in Nevada has NO CONNECTION TO THE FORGOTTEN DOG FOUNDATION WHATSOEVER. Please also be aware that the solicitation of charitable contributions by entities that have not properly registered in the State of Nevada to make such solicitations is illegal. Further, donations made to entities that are not recognized as 501(c)(3) organizations are not tax deductible by donors, so prior to making any “donations” to any entity claiming to be a “charity” or “recognized as a 501(c)(3)”, be sure to confirm this status by searching its name on the IRS charity check website:

The Forgotten Dog Foundation is a reputable 501(c)(3) organization that was formed in 2010. Any use of our name, intellectual property of any kind, Employer Identification Number (EIN), logo, content, social media posts, website posts, foster agreements, adoption contracts or applications will have legal ramifications. 

We have no other rescue dogs in Las Vegas up for adoption. No further adoption events will take place in Nevada.
