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 at http://forgotten-friends.org.
We are always working to place rescued animals into permanent, responsible adoptive homes. In 2015 we are planning to continue transporting dogs out of the Valley. Most of our dogs are going to the SFCA rescue group in Dallas where they fly the dogs to eastern states that love our adoptable animals. We transported 600 dogs in 2014 with the majority going to Dallas.
We are looking for help from the community to continue transporting dogs. Each trip of 25 dogs will cost us from $700 to $1000 to provide health certificates, vaccinate and transport.
MUM Moving Unwanted Mutts has been keeping us busy…….
February 26th we sent 35 dogs and puppies to Ocala and Clear Water, Florida. March 6th we are sending 38 dogs to Dallas. Transport is a time consuming job of obtaining enough information about our Valley dogs and sharing lists with the receiving group to pick the dogs they think can be adopted easily in their area. The dogs going to Dallas will be flown to Boston and New York where they are waiting for these wonderful dogs. Our job does not stop with providing lists. All dogs must be current on vaccinations including Rabies. All dogs are required to travel with a Health Certificate which requires a Vet to check each animal before it is okay to travel. This process can take 3 to 4 hours on the day of transport. The dogs are then loaded in the Van and then we have some wonderful gentlemen that drive these dogs to their destination. The Florida trip required driving straight through until all dogs were unloaded. The Dallas trip we have had Cal Fann drive Friday through the night to Saturday morning early drop off. Without these drivers we would not be able to transport these dogs out of the valley.
