Thank You for a Successful…& Very Busy…2020!
Welcome to our newsletter, a great new way to reach out to our growing Forever Changed community! Let's kick it off with some very good news: In only our third year of operation, Forever Changed Animal Rescue’s life-saving activities increased tremendously in 2020. Thanks to generous donations of time and money from our growing group of supporters, we found forever homes for about 300 dogs (and a handful of cats). We also provided desperately needed medical treatments to a number of rescued dogs. Our incredible supporters donated over $7,000 to help pay for surgeries for our two most seriously injured rescues, Molly and Henry ­– who are both now recovering in their forever homes!

We are so grateful for our generous community that enables us to save lives every day. We cannot do the work we do without supporters like you! Together with your help, we look forward to another successful year of saving animals in need in 2021!

Forever Changed Animal Rescue: Our Story
Forever Changed Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization started in January 2018 by a group of friends who met in veterinary school while doing rescue work together. After graduation, Drs. Andrea Deoudes, Michelle McDonald and Katie Gagliardo decided to start their own rescue organization in honor of a dear friend/family member who had recently passed away. The rest of the FCAR team joined soon after. All started out as fosters, and took on more active roles as they became more involved. While we are committed to rescuing animals in need both near and far, the majority of our rescue dogs come from Texas ­– more than 200 in 2020 alone. When Dr. Deoudes visited Texas to treat animals affected by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, she was deeply touched by the poor living conditions of the many street dogs there. Rescuing from the state became a passion for her and for the rest of the team. Today we have a network of fosters, transporters and pilots who have been instrumental in our ability to pull dogs from the streets of Texas.

Tripp captured our hearts this summer, when we saw a video of him limping around on three legs as he roamed the streets of south Texas.This handsome and mellow guy, about 4 or 5 years old, is house-trained, rides beautifully in a car, is great with children and lives for belly rubs. Tripp will do well in a home without cats or small dogs, with an active family who will continue to work with him on the training he needs.
This sweet and loving 3-year-old pup came to us as an owner surrender, after she was hit by a car and suffered a hip dislocation. Unable to pay for her medical care, Denali’s owners brought her to the vet to have her put to sleep. Our board member convinced them to give her to us instead. Denali is now recovering well from hip surgery, and looking forward to providing her future forever family with a lot of love!

This 2-year-old happy, active and playful bonded pair can’t wait to find their forever home soon! These littermates have a harmless genetic condition where their legs tremble sometimes, usually when they get excited. It doesn't bother them at all and is not something that can or needs to be treated.
