PETCO Foundation Invests in Lifesaving work of Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV. Grant of $2,500 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in the RIO Grande Valley.
MISSION, Texas.(April 1 2019)—Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV today announced it has been awarded $2,500.00 grant from the Petco Foundation. This grant is aimed at assisting with our program “No Litter snip your Critters”. The most effective way to prevent unplanned litters from ending up in shelters is to have your dog spayed/neutered.
Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV is a nonprofit,100% volunteer, foster based dog rescue organization. We have been established since June 2012 and have been working with other nonprofit groups across the Rio Grande Valley. In the last year we have helped spay/neuter over 85 animals and helped transport out of the Valley over 100 animals.
“Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV is grateful to the Petco Foundation for their generosity and we would also like to recognize Myriam Herszage for her generosity this year. These funds are needed to help with life-saving programs,” said Christine Compton, President
Since we have completed many successful transports of animals to other areas where the demand for puppies and dogs is higher than the number of available animals, we will be using a portion of this 2019 Grant from the Petco Foundation to continue our lifesaving efforts by helping with some transport expense.
