About us

We formed Forgotten Tails Rescue, Inc. because we’ve seen firsthand many dogs, especially small dogs, abandoned at local shelters with serious medical needs, and since these local shelters are always struggling to care for a large number of animals and to keep the lights on, often funds aren’t available to help dogs with serious illnesses and injuries. We began raising funds to help these neglected, sick dogs. Thanks to generous donors, the fundraisers were successful, and all of the dogs received the medical care they needed. Together, we decided to take our efforts further to help more dogs with serious medical issues.

Forgotten Tails Rescue, Inc., a non-profit dog rescue, was founded in April, 2016. We are a 501(c)3 federal tax exempt organization, and we are a registered charitable organization with the State of Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs.

Forgotten Tails Rescue is an all-volunteer, dog rescue with a focus on rescuing dogs with dire medical needs and dogs in kill-shelters that would otherwise be euthanized. Our mission is to rescue these dogs, get them medical treatment, and adopt them into the best, loving homes possible.

Forgotten Tails Rescue saves dogs by working with local shelters and by helping strays and displaced dogs who would otherwise not receive crucial medical treatment and/or would be euthanized. We are considered a rescue of last resort.

Every potential Forgotten Tails Rescue adoptee is vetted prior to the adoption and, at least, one meet-and-greet is required. Every dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested, and vaccinated (age appropriate).

Forgotten Tails Rescue does not have any paid staff – even the officers and directors are volunteers. All donations go directly to the care of the dogs.

Forgotten Tails Rescue is an organization still in the setup stage.  We are working to put together an amazing group of compassionate volunteers for our Foster Parent Network and our Transportation Network, as well as other dedicated, talented, and kind-hearted volunteers.  Without volunteers, we would not be able to make our mission to save dogs a reality.

Any amount donated to Forgotten Tails Rescue is graciously accepted and appreciated.  Again, all donations directly benefit the care of the dogs.
