Forgotten Dogs is a not-for-profit group dedicated to mitigating canine homelessness and improving dogs’ quality of life in Houston’s 5th ward. The charity provides for stray, neglected and abused dogs needs, both immediate and long term. They supply feed stations in areas of high stray density, in order to prevent malnutrition and starvation. Adoptive homes, foster homes and no-kill shelters are found as quickly as possible, and veterinary care is provided for conditions as diverse as gunshot wounds, broken bones, parvovirus, distemper and mange. Animals are spayed or neutered to help break the cycle of deprivation and misery. Forgotten Dogs also goes to great lengths to educate 5th Ward residents on how to care for their animals.
Why we support Forgotten Dogs
With so many charities dedicated to causes we care deeply about, it’s hard to know where our support is best allocated. In addition to focusing on a vastly underserved group in our city, Forgotten Dogs really shares our vision for comprehensive remedies. See, Carroll has never been about band-aids. We’re about solutions. Our business is built on fixing risk problems for our clients, not just keeping a finger lodged in the dike, or worse, bailing water as it comes gushing in.
Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward feeds stray dogs, a necessity to fend of impending starvation. But their emphasis is on attacking the problem at its various roots: runaway population, poverty and misguided human intervention. For their dedication to fixing problems rather than dealing with them, Carroll is proud to become Forgotten Dogs’ first corporate sponsor.
