Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV Vision for 2021

We envision a day when every adoptable pet finds a loving, permanent home.

Our Mission Statement:

Our Programs:

  • Adoptions: Continue to post all adoptable animals on Pet Finder and Facebook;
  • Spay/Neuter: Continue to support the community by helping individuals and small rescues with spay/neuter funds when available;
  • Volunteers: Campaign and collaborate with other local rescues to find Foster homes.

 February 2021, Petco Foundation awarded Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue a Grant for $2,500.

We appreciate all that Petco has given us and intend to share this grant for spay/neuter of local animals and transport of dogs out of our area to families who are anxious to adopt.


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. (February 2021) — 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 and vetted over 141 animals and helped transport out of the Valley over 437 animals.

“Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV is grateful to the Petco Foundation for their generosity. 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 2021 Grant from the Petco Foundation, to continue our lifesaving efforts by helping with some transport expense.
