Fur-get Me Not RESCUE
Our mission is simple
Rescue / Rehab / Rehome
Our organization operates a volunteer-based animal fostering, rehabilitation and transportation network out of the Twin Counties. We partner with several other rescue organizations in surrounding areas including Angels of Assisi, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, Wythe County Humane Society, City Dog, Alleghany Animal Shelter and many others.
We work to save animals from high risk areas and provide foster care, adoptions, or transport to areas with high adoption rates. Every one of God’s creatures deserves a second chance. We don’t just take the healthy, young pets. Every one of them gets a chance. Whether the solution is to find an animal a new home, finding them a better chance with a bigger rescue, or simply keeping them comfortable at the end of their lives, helping animals in need is what it’s all about for our volunteers.
Giving an animal a loving home while they’re waiting for their furever home.
We help place our pets for adoption in other rescues where they can find a loving owner.

A Highlight… Rescues in Action
Great things happen when two rescues team up. We are so very fortunate to be teamed up with Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. AWLA typically schedules a transport of animals from us to their facility one to two times a month. They are one of the reasons we are able to help our local shelters place those that are overlooked in our area. When we have a transport scheduled with AWLA we are able to walk into local shelters that we work with and find out who has been in there the longest with the least amount of interest, who has been adopted and returned, who will most likely be left behind, and pull those animals to send to them. We have the dogs vaccinated and the cats are Feleuk/FIV tested and vaccinated prior to transport, they take care of all other vetting prior to placement. Not only do they offer their assistance in placement of our local homeless animals, they also send supplies that we need to help us while we have these guys in foster care. Please visit their website or Facebook page, make sure to offer them your thanks for helping our area.
