Facts about Effie

  • Breed: Schnauzer (Miniature)
  • Color: Gray/Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Effie is a very special girl. She manages to steal the hearts of everyone she meets with her loving, innocent demeanor. She is estimated to be about 3-4 years old and she has a truly miraculous story.
Effie found us, instead of the other way around. She popped up out of a field and promptly collapsed at our founder's feet. She weak, dehydrated, emaciated, and covered in matts. This sweet girl had chemical burns down her back, which led to her contracting an pretty nasty infection. Effie is a true fighter and made a quick turn around after some much needed TLC, fluids, and medication. She has received round o'clock care and love in her foster home, but would love a home for herself.
Effie is marked as special needs because she is currently going through heartworm treatment. Due to her condition, her body is only strong enough for the slow method.
Despite everything she has been through, this incredible girl has never lost her spirit and brings happiness to the people around her.

About Forgotten Felines Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our goal is to help every cat that needs help. This includes but is not limited to ferals, strays, owner surrenders, and cats that have been cast aside and forgotten about by society.

We aim to place all friendly cats and kittens in foster homes until they are adopted into forever homes of their own!

FFR's objective is to enforce and educate the public about the importance of TNR, or trap-neuter-return. We trap, spay or neuter, and then return ferals back to their colonies as an alternative to euthanasia.These cats are given combo tests to determine their health level then given vaccinations and are returned to their colonies if deemed healthy. All colonies are given a dedicated caretaker to feed and monitor them. Any sick cat is quickly re-trapped and immediately taken to the vet. All of this is done out of pocket by our founding members. When possible we try to find low-cost spay/neuter clinics and help from other rescues.

Any cat that we cannot directly help by fostering, due to limited funds or foster homes, we promise to devote all of our time and resources in an attempt to find said cat a different rescue who has the resources to help or, as a last resort, a shelter in their area.
