FORGOTTEN PAWS ANIMAL RESCUE

Rescue, Rehabilitate, Rehome

San Marcos, CA   |  www.forgottenpaws.org

Mission

Pets by the thousands are being left homeless for a wide variety of reasons. We do not judge how these lovely souls got into our arms, just that we welcome them. Our commitment is to find them loving and lasting forever homes using the most responsible and safe rescue means possible.
We deal mainly with getting red listed pets, either abandoned or surrendered after tragic family events, re-homed into loving and devoted forever families. Many of these pets also have sadly strayed into local county and city shelters. Our homes can be anywhere in the world and we have fosters and adopters from all walks of life.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our needs are twofold; as we choose to keep our organization small we need and want to add just a few foster families in the local area. We also need more donations toward our medical needs.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Orchard Orphans

Medical care and feeding of abandoned dogs at migrant worker camps. We spay and neuter these pets and find homes for any puppies and sociably pets. We provide medical care and daily feeding of the remaining dogs that are not sociable to humans.

Population(s) Served
Adults

As Chihuahuas can have a lifespan of 18-20 years they are often burdened with health issues that their owners are not capable or interested in treating. The biggest issue is untreated dental problems that, like in humans, can lead to heart diseases. We take these very small, very old and sometimes very sick pups into our hospice service. We provide medical and dental care if they are medically appropriate for the treatments. Those that are not or when a resident becomes too medically compromised are provided loving comfort and non-invasive care until they pass.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Collecting and disseminating pet food to homeless shelters that allow the homeless to keep their pets. We also provide pet donated and purchased food to women's shelters. And for those unable to find lodging with their pets we provide pet food to a local church that makes "Doggy Bags" for the homeless to pick up while still living on the streets..

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome "red listed" in-danger small dogs. We also feel a need to educate and provide alternatives to these issues that get these previously homed dogs dumped into local shelters and on how they became homeless and how to prevent and help them after they are made homeless.

We choose to align our rescue with local animal shelters to create a positive relationship to facilitate the saving and exiting of adoptable as well as hospice small dogs.

We have dependable volunteers and transportation to actually go to the shelters and with our medical knowledge ascertain as best we can the correct current condition, treat-ability and appropriateness for our rescue. We work within our budget and fostering capabilities to spend our donations wisely .

We have set up a successful non profit rescue organization that has been providing help to animals for almost 10 years. That is a consistent long term amount of time in this industry. Next is to solidify a few more long term fosters and angels.
