Furget Me Not Animal Rescue is relatively new animal rescue organization. It was founded in November of 2019. Since it’s launch it’s been able to rescue more than 150 animals from local shelters. Right now the organization is 100% foster based.

Furget Me Not’s CEO, Michelle Underwood, says the group is looking for a building to use as a thrift store to help raise money to help more animals. She says the group puts a focus on taking animals out of shelters that may need extra rehabilitation before they are adoptable.

Examples of that include Wesley.

The group was able to help another puppy who was found in a ditch with three broken legs named Grace. The group was able to raise $7,000 to help Grace recover from her injuries.
