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.(November 15, 2017)—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 organization working as a Foster Based dog rescue.  We have been established since June 2012 and have working with other nonprofit groups across the Rio Grande Valley. In the last year we have helped spay/neuter over 95 animals and helped transport out of the Valley over 300 animals.

“Forgotten Friends Texas Rescue RGV is grateful to the Petco Foundation for their generosity and recognition of the importance of helping with our Spay/Neuter programs,” said Christine Compton, President. “In recent months it has become increasingly difficult to find the resources and funds needed to help with these life-saving surgeries.”  “We will be working to provide spay and neuter assistance when we can.”

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 2017 Grant from the  Petco Foundation to continue our lifesaving efforts by helping with some transport expenses.
