Forgotten Friends of Long Island is dedicated to the rescue of companion animals which are in municipal shelters. Sadly, and through no fault of their own, these cats and dogs are homeless and wait patiently only to be euthanized :( We at FFLI will take those animals into our safe haven whenever possible!
Forgotten Friends will also intervene whenever possible, to rescue animals in dire need of immediate attention. Because we believe that no animal should be unloved, nor is unlovable, we will not shy away from taking old, sick or "difficult" dogs or cats. This may be the first time in their lives they receive undivided attention and respect. We will always provide them with the medical care and rehab they need to become whole again. Our volunteers work tirelessly on training and socialization both with people and other dogs/cats in order to prepare each animal to become a valued member of a loving and permanent home.
In order to end the needless suffering and death of countless companion animals, Forgotten Friends will use every opportunity to promote spay/neuter programs in the community and help to educate the public in responsible pet ownership.
Every animal in our care will be treated with kindness and dignity, every volunteer with respect and appreciation, every member of the public with sincere gratitude for their generosity and support in our mission to end the cycle of misery and death caused by overpopulation, neglect and abuse.
