This past year has been a whirlwind of activity and exciting events for Forgotten Friends of Long Island (FFLI) Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. With continued support from its donors, members and volunteers, FFLI has been able to expand its mission of rescuing the most disadvantaged animals from local municipal shelters.

Dogs and cats suffering from illness, injury, disability, abuse or neglect, or who continue to be overlooked and are consequently scheduled for euthanasia, are the animals of greatest concern to FFLI. Through the efforts of FFLI and its supporters, the animals in its care receive necessary medical treatment and therapy as well as the love and dignity that many of them have never before experienced. Through its careful and conscientious adoption screening process, FFLI is dedicated to matching each animal to its ideal “forever home.”
