Forgotten Friends Mixed Breed Rescue

Forgotten Friends Mixed Breed Rescue Forgotten Friends is a 501 c (3) Austin, Texas-based rescue group, relying solely on donations. Volunteer with Us !!

WHAT WE DO

After rescuing animals from participating shelters, Forgotten Friends:
-provides a health exam with a participating veterinarian, including heartworm testing,
-provides the rabies shot and yearly vaccinations,
-dental, heartworm treatment and any other care needed,
-has the animals spayed or neutered, and
-provides the animals with monthly heartworm medication. (Heartworm disease can

be deadly, but is preventable if dogs are given once-a-month chewable heartworm pills.) They are then allowed time to adjust and become accustomed to a foster family environment (when one is available) before being adopted into their new home that is a good match for family and dog. http://www.volunteermatch.org/search/org41846.jsp

This is Finley, the Golden Retriever, who can carry 6 tennis balls in his mouth at one time.

He earned the Guinness World Record for "most tennis balls held in the mouth by a dog".

Cheers to Finley 🎾🐾

1/9/24 This began with a significant rise in consumer reports of sick pets eating Purina pet food. We are now seeing the same alarming symptoms (food refusal, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, death) across multiple brands of pet food. This has happened previously when there was contamination at the supplier level which multiple brands purchase from. If your pet is exhibiting these symptoms. STOP THE FOOD IMMEDIATELY. Email [email protected] with your pet's information, symptoms, and what food you are feeding.

*Update as of 1/4/24 - 213 dogs and cats (155 dogs, and 58 cats) sick eating Purina, 57 of which have died.

Since 12/5/23 in the 'Saving Pets One Pet @ A Time' group on Facebook there have been 48 dogs and 3 cats sick eating Purina, 10 of which have died. It seems to be from all different types of Purina, with Purina Pro Plan being the most common. If you or someone you know is feeding this food, I would stop immediately! Do NOT wait until your pet gets sick or Purina issues a recall.

Join the Facebook group 'Saving Pets One Pet @ A Time' for additional information and resources.

info from Savings Pets One Pet @ a Time:

"Stop the food immediately. Post in the group above what your pets current diet is and medical conditions and we will help you find a more nutritious and safer diet.

Save the pet food. Do NOT release it to Purina in any circumstances.

Contact your vet and request a copy of your pets medical records. Ask the vet to report your concerns to Purina.

Report it to the FDA (https://truthaboutpetfood.com/report-a-suspect-risk-pet.../)

Report it to Purina (https://www.purina.com/contact-us)

Do NOT agree to send them the food. If you feel compelled to do so, only send a small portion. Keep the rest of the food in the freezer.

Do NOT send the medical records to Purina.

Document your conversation with Purina.

Purina may eventually say they will pay your vet bills and reimburse you for your pet food. If you agree to this they will ask you to sign a form which will prohibit you from taking legal action. Eventually, if there is a class action lawsuit you will be unable to join if you do this or if you want to file your own lawsuit.

Consider getting your pet food tested:(https://truthaboutpetfood.com/help-to-check-your-pet-food/) This would be helpful if you want to pursue legal action.

Purina has already been notified by numerous pet owners and they have not done anything to alert unsuspecting pet parents. Initially, there were offering to reimburse the pet owners for their pet food. Currently, they are offering pet parents $10 in coupons (which is what Hills offered me for my dead dog) and having a third party contact the pet parents.

Eventually, we may see Purina pet food become “unavailable” on the store shelves. This is called a silent recall. The pet food manufacturer doesn’t want to admit there is a problem with the product, so they start pulling the products off the shelves quietly. (Hills did this for 60 days before the recall)."

I know that we are dog people but I just had to post this.

🎆🚫 Help make New Year's Eve stress-free for our pets 🐶🐱 and wild animal friends🦌🐿️!

Consider skipping the fireworks and opt for a peaceful celebration that benefits everyone. 🐾❤️

12/31/2023

New Year's Eve can be a scary time for your pets. Many animals, dogs especially, get spooked and run away during fireworks celebrations. Before this evening you can take a few precautions to help keep your pets safe as the celebrations begin.

If your animals are microchipped make sure your phone number and personal info is up to date on your pet's chip. Microchips are only as good as the info stored on them! If your pet does become lost, call the microchip company immediately to report it.

Check fences, gates and latches to make sure your yard is fully secure. If you know your dog is particularly fearful take potty breaks on leash only.

And finally provide a safe space for your pets to hide or feel secure. Sometimes turning on a radio or TV can help drown out the fireworks. Some pets feel safer in a crate or small room to hide out in.

If this is your first New Year's Eve with a pet, best to assume they will be afraid and take extra precautious! Be safe and have fun as we ring in 2024!! 😺🎉🐶🥂❤

Boutique Teacup Puppies AKA Baby Pups LLC AKA Celebrity Puppy Boutiques , using babypups.com as their website. They will meet you in the parking lot when you purchase a pup or ship it to you. Where do they get their puppies from?

Great question! We have linked this online seller to these breeders:
