We recently moved our rescue operations down to Walsenburg, where we have seen great need to support the local shelter,  help the many owner surrendered animals and strays in Huerfano County. To date, we have assisted nearly 30 dogs from the shelter itself, which is small and underfunded. We have also helped 19 additional stray or surrendered dogs in the county.

As we continue our work, supplies for puppies and enrichment items like chews and toys for our adult rescues are hugely helpful. Some of our foster pups wait longer than others for their forever homes, and toys keep their days happy. We also aim to trap and assist some of the many free-roaming animals in this rural area, needing traps, trail cameras, and other gear to achieve this goal.

Of course, medical care is key when bringing in injured and neglected dogs, as we often encounter broken bones, lack of vetting, and serious dental disease in the seniors we rescue. Financial donations are extremely helpful in covering these crucial medical bills.

Please consider supporting our Huerfano County rescue efforts by visiting our Amazon and Chewy wish lists for needed supplies. Any amount given is greatly appreciated as we transition this new chapter of our rescue to help the high-need dogs in this community. Together, we can bring them From Forgotten to Forever!

From Forgotten to Forever Rescue

  • From Forgotten to Forever Rescue & Transport started in 2015 with a mission of transporting dogs and cats out of high kill shelters in New Mexico north to Colorado. The transport side of the operation is responsible for assisting dozens of rescues in rescuing thousands of animals from Death Row over the years. In August of 2018, the rescue operation opened and since then has been responsible for the creation of hundreds of happy families through direct placement adoptions and expanded intake areas to include parts of Texas and remote areas of Colorado. Since moving to Huerfano county we have been the biggest puller from the Walsenburg shelter. We have helped trap stray dogs, check for possible owners and when that doesn't pan out vet and find a home for the dog. FFTF accepts all breeds, sizes, and ages of dogs and cats. We do not shy away from major medical cases and have invested thousands of dollars into saving the life of a single dog or cat on more than one occasion.
