The following is a message from Deborah Ullrich, the founder and manager of Forgotten Friends-Mixed Breed Rescue (FFMBR), a shelter located in the Austin, Texas, area. This is a wonderful rescue group and shelter. Please consider making a donation to help keep our furry friends cool and comfortable this summer.
"Through the help of many generous donations we have been able to build a small, 14x24' kennel building and new pens on each side for exercise! But with Summer here one side especially is way too hot for the dogs. We are wanting a Carolina Carport (this is an example of one but much larger) to cover the hottest pen first to help with rain and the sun. The smallest size available is 12'x21' and is $695. This will not cover the whole pen but allow a comfortable area for the dogs to get out of the direct elements.Then later one for the other side. If you can help in any way, either by donating by Pay pal at our PAW or forwarding this e-mail, everything will be greatly appreciated." -Deborah Ullrich, Forgotten Friends

About Forgotten Friends:
Forgotten Friends is an 501 c (3) Austin-based rescue group that was started ten years ago to help reduce the number of sweet, loving dogs that die everyday in area shelters for lack of a suitable home. We are supported solely by volunteers and donations from the community.
We are volunteer-based and all of our funds are used for the care and maintenance of our rescued dogs. 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. Then they can be moved out to a foster home for training before going to new families. If there are no available fosters, the dogs reside at the shelter until they are adopted.
We are committed to finding the very best match between the needs of our adopters and our dogs by carefully screening applications, meet & greet sessions, home visits and vet checks.
Thank you for choosing rescue, please do not breed or buy while shelter pets die!
Phase I of the Building Project is Complete! Phase II, a large building for the big dogs is underway!
Please consider making a donation to help Deborah at Forgotten Friends to provide these furry creatures with a cool, comfortable and loving environment this summer, and all year long.
God bless you.
