Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: It is our mission to protect and improve the lives of abused, abandoned, and homeless animals. We work tirelessly to save and rehabilitate both physically and mentally abused animals. Every animal is given as much time and care as needed. We strive to help and educate the public on the importance of pet sterilization, responsible pet ownership, and the humane treatment of all these wonderful animals. We are a foster based rescue, which means we do not have a physical location.

Results: We continue to pull many dogs and cats in need of medical help as well as those who are in danger in overfilled shelters. In the past year, we have helped many heartworm positive dogs, pulled numerous dogs off euthanasia lists, expanded our efforts to even more shelters and are actively pursuing new fosters so that we can help more. Our journey continues but we need your help!

Target demographics: protect and improve the lives of abused, abandoned, and homeless animals. We work tirelessly to save and rehabilitate both physically and mentally abused animals. Every animal is given as much time and care as needed; as euthanasia is not an option.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 50 animals find forever homes

Geographic areas served: Cleveland, OH

Programs: educating the public on the importance of pet sterilization, responsible pet ownership, and the humane treatment of all these wonderful animals. Rescuing from abusive situations and high kill shelters.

I fostered for Forget Me Not. It was a great experience. They are a wonderful rescue who does so much for animals in need. They are compassionate people who truly care about the animals. I had contacted them about pulling a heartworm positive dog who was in danger of being euthanized in the city pound. I had contacted several other rescues in the area and no one responded to me. Forget Me Not did not hesitate to pull her. I saw her through her treatment, they incurred all of the cost, and she was adopted into a wonderful home. They saved her life. I’ve included her picture.

I fostered an amazing dog for Forget Me Not Rescue. I picked him up at the Franklin county dog shelter, that was last November. We were able to adopt him. He is a fantastic family member, and we couldn't of gotten him without Forget Me Not Rescue. I love the people who work for this rescue. Always ready to help, answer questions, and give advice

I work in dog networking and have dealt with many rescues, but Forget Me Not raises the bar for others to follow. They put their heart into rescue and truly love every dog they take in. I cannot praise this organization enough. They are everything a rescue should be and more.

FGMN does incredible, life changing work in the rescue community. They frequently take on the animals with huge medical needs, often despite not having funding or financial backing to do so. They do this because they believe every animal's life is of value. Euthanasia is never an option for them. They have saved so many!

I've worked with FMNAR for the past few years at our kennel in Lorain County and as a rescuer in general. They are committed to the dogs they pull - they will not pull if they do not have the means to care for them. As much as it will break their hearts, they will do right by the animals they pull and do what they can. Working to educate fosters on best practices and with trainers who follow the positive reinforcement path - we love Forget Me Not.

This rescue is deeply invested in the dogs they rescue! I am a first time foster for them and they are organized and supportive and knowledgeable! My foster dog has gotten everything he needs and more. They are available whenever I need advice or direction and are not cheap about what their rescued animals need!!

They help dogs that other rescues shy away from. The tough cases. The port bulls, the medical cases. And the hospice cases. They genuinely love and care about every one of their foster dogs and we all wish we could do more with the funds we get from fundraisers. But there are always more needy dogs than is possible to help. Please consider fostering or donating if you can

They helped us place a dog that was recovered by the local police department. We couldn't keep her and Forget Me Not spent countless hours and funds to take her to adoption events and to board her when a foster wasn't available. They are truly angels on Earth!

Forget me not Rescue is the best! They helped us place a beautiful dog that we rescued in a loving foster home. The owner of the company met us at the home and spent hours making sure the foster family, my wife and I and the puppy were all happy! Truly doing amazing things for all of the four legged creatures in need.

I am from a neighboring community but now live several states away. I started following this rescue to see what types of animals they are helping. I have been impressed with their work and the care they give to their foster animals. As with every rescue they need help from their followers and are very polite when asking for donations. They are quick to respond with their appreciation and gratitude.

I am looking forward to working with Forget Me Not Animal Rescue in any way that I can remotely. I currently do applications processing with a rescue in the Boston area so I know we can make a difference to many pets in need.

Forget Me Not Animal Rescue stepped up to the plate when others were unwilling. My neighbor Barb and I are so GRATEFUL they could help us out when we had a Momma cat have 4 babies in our yards. They were very helpful in educating us on working with feral cats. And able to take them in to foster them so they can find FORVER homes, when others were turning us away because we were told it's "kitten" season. We are forever grateful and will continue to support them in any way we can so they can keep up there hard work.

I was dealing with a lady named Gina from Forget Me Not Animal Rescue and she was so professional and passionate about her rescue animals. She was very thorough and had the Dog fully vetted, did an home inspection, checked references, did a meet and greet. She was very prompt to all of our meets and returned my calls right away. I adopted a pitbull, his name is Tip, he is awesome and we just love spoiling him. I was so happy that they took their time to find a good match for our home. Gina was also very helpful with training and grooming tips. I defiantly recommend this rescue. They may seem tough during the application process, but its for the best interest of the animals and also for you, you have to make sure the animal is a good fit for your home. Thank you Forget me Not Animal Rescue, you guys ROCK!!!!!

There was a very young, scared and hungry cat in our neighborhood that desperately needed help. I scooped this little girl up in hopes of finding a no-kill rescue to take her. After many phone calls to many rescues, Forget Me Not Rescue did not even hesitate to help. The rescue vetted her immediately. She was socialized personally by the president of the organization with her cats. I cannot express the absolute committed and hard work and love that comes from Forget Me Not. I know that they work with some very difficult cases and never give up. They pull animals from euthanasia lists. They do everything they can to leave no animal behind. I feel blessed to have found this wonderful organization and they have become my rescue of choice.

Forget Me Not is an amazing rescue. It may be small, but it has saved the lives of so many animals. I first got acquainted with them through Facebook and I asked them to possibly help me with a really hard dog to place & they worked endlessly to save her life. Then they helped save another dog that I asked them to save that was experiencing horrible anxiety at the shelter (another tough dog to place). They take both dogs and cats that are very adoptable and not as adoptable. They try to save as many animals as possible. Their hearts are so loving and compassionate. I am so proud to be a volunteer for Forget Me Not Rescue. They inspire me to be the best person that I can be. They are wonderful people who care SOOO much! They deserve to get more coverage and visibility so that they can save more lives!

Forget Me Not Animal Rescue has the most dedicated Director and President! Their hearts are so big. They focus on the animals that need help the most. The medical cases, the lost and forgotten souls waiting for months on end in kill shelters, the mentally and physically abuse. This rescue is small but mighty! They have made so many positive changes for the animals and they have certainly impacted their fosters lives too! Great rescue!
