FORGOTTEN FRIENDS OF LONG ISLAND
Forgotten Friends of Long Island (FFLI) is a 501c3 non- profit all volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue of companion animals which have been in
municipal shelters for an extended period of time, overlooked by both the general public and other rescue groups.\
Forgotten Friends has no paid staff. Every dollar raised goes directly to provide quality medical care and rehabilitation for the dogs and cats in our care.
FFLI will intervene, whenever possible, to rescue animals in dire need of immediate attention. Because FFLI believes that no animal should be unloved, nor is
unlovable, we will not shy away from taking old, sick or "difficult" dogs into our program.
Each dog/cat will be vaccinated, receive veterinary care as needed, heartworm tested and started on heartworm preventative and spayed or neutered. Our
volunteers will work tirelessly on training, teaching basic manners, and socialization both with people and other dogs/cats to prepare each animal to become
a valued member of a loving and permanent home.
FFLI will use every opportunity to promote spay/neuter programs in the community and help to educate the public in responsible pet ownership.
Forgotten Friends of Long Island is a member of the Mayor’s Alliance of NYC and the proud recipient of a prestigious 2012 Pet Peeves Grant. We continue to
rescue the neediest animals from local municipal shelters on Long Island, Brooklyn and New York City. We have appeared on Fox and Friends News numerous times
and have appeared in many newspaper and magazine articles.
We are grateful for the generosity and support of the public in helping us to end the cycle of misery and death caused by overpopulation, neglect and abuse.
