We are Forgotten Friends Mixed Breed Rescue, based in Austin-Leander. Over the last few years, we have lost a lot of volunteers and fosters, due to the COVID shutdown and its aftermath. We are a very small, private dog rescue, operating with volunteers only. We do not have the far reaching clout of Austin Pets Alive or Austin Animal Center but we do help the unwanted dogs within our own means. Now that we are able to show our dogs again at Meet & Greets, we have to literally beg for volunteers and fosters. We are mostly desperate for fosters, especially for the dogs larger than 35 pounds. But if you can help ANY dog, please go to our site: www.forgottenfriendstx.org and fill out the Foster Application. If not, just volunteer at the Petco Meet & Greets for 3 hours on a Saturday. We will post this separately. Thank you for choosing to rescue!!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Forgotten Friends - Mixed Breed Rescue
P.O. Box 1395, Leander, TX 78641, US
Forgotten Friends is a 501c(3) Austin-based rescue group that was started in 1999 to help reduce the number of sweet, loving dogs that die everyday in area shelters for lack of a committed home. We are supported solely by volunteers and donations from the community.
Puppies and dogs enter our program from area shelters and stay at a private mini shelter until foster homes become open or new fosters sign on. The dogs are then transferred out to the foster for training before going to new families. If there are no available fosters, the dogs reside at the shelter until they are adopted.
Our commitment to the potential adopter and to our dogs is to screen all applications carefully to find the very best match between the needs of the adopter and our dog.

- As much time as the dog requires, prior to adoption out to a forever family. Your home will be the dog's home.
- It is expected for the foster to treat the dog as their very own family member. To provide food, treats, toys, and mostly love and attention. If you can train and socialize the dog, this is a plus, as your foster dog will be adopted faster.
