Mission Statement

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.

Great organization, super fun way to help out. Had a great time looking after the dogs and talking to potential adopters.

Wonderful, loving pets and friendly volunteers. I always feel fortunate to be able to come help promote these animals for adoption. Every one of them has their unique story, qualities, and so much love to give. Highly recommend this activity for everyone.
