Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV is a Mission, Texas, based no-kill 501(c)(3) foster-based dog rescue. At this time we have no Foster homes for cats or kittens.  We post our adoptable pets on Petfinder and at

We are always working to place rescued animals into permanent, responsible adoptive homes.   In 2014 we are planning to continue transporting dogs out of the Valley, but the Grant Money is depleted.    We have transported over 525 dogs from June 2013 through May 2014.

We are looking for help from the community to continue sending dogs to Dallas in the Fall.  The SFCA in Dallas receives our dogs and flies them to other areas in the US.  They have helped this spring with 5 transports and a total of 115 dogs and puppies.  This fall we have 6 transports set up with the SFCA.  Each trip will cost us from $700 to $1000.

The ASPCA foundation has provided us with Grant money to help fund our project “A Leg Up” Canine transport.  This money helped with the costs of transporting animals to other States that are able to find forever homes for our animals.   As of May 31, 2014 we have transported 525 dogs out of the valley with the majority of these animals already adopted. 


Our final trip for this Spring to Dallas left here on May 9th with drop off in Dallas on May 10th.  We would like to thank Cal Fann for driving the last few trips to Dallas in his van.    Many thanks to the volunteers that have helped us get the dogs to the vet and staging  area.

A big Thank You to Linda Smith for all that she has done for this past year in listing, boarding, loading and transporting dogs to other areas.  Without Linda we would not have been able to complete any of the transports.

Thank You …. Thank You …. from our hearts to PETCO

Our Thanks go out to PETCO again.  Our ” Helping the Community with Spay and Neuter” project so far we have been able to spay or neuter 80 dogs and cats.  We are working with our partners in the valley and helping the animals in foster homes with spay and neuter. 

This is a wonderful gift for us and we will spend it wisely.
