Adopting a dog may not change the world, but for that one dog, you changed his world forever.
Our dogs are loving and great family members, they're just a little big.
At Forget-Me-Not Inc. in Bradenton, FL, we believe in second chances for our four-legged friends. Rescues like ours are built on a foundation of donations, volunteer time, and foster families we have come to know and trust.

Approximately 5-7 million pets enter animal shelters every year, while approximately 3-4 million of those animals are euthanized. Adoption provides more space and time to save more dogs.
Considering adoption? Here are the steps.
Give a furry friend a second chance at a family! Pets make great companions and give your household life. They help teach children responsibility and companionship. Follow these basic steps to start your adoption process from Forget-Me-Not Inc. in Bradenton.
- Fill out our interest form! This form helps our adoption counselors get to know you. We ask our interested adoptees about their hobbies, interests, dogs on their radar, and other basic information to make sure you are a good match for our rescue. Our adoption counselors can then approve it and schedule a meet-and-greet with you.
- Your meet-and-greet allows you to visit with the dog or dogs you expressed interest in from your form. We recommend that you bring any other dogs in your household to this meeting so they can get to know each other.
- We do a home check next! We need to make sure your home is a safe space for your new addition and that you can feasibly carry on the responsibilities of a dog. We can usually do this at the same time as the meet-and-greet, which saves time on both ends of the adoption process!
- The final step is contract signing and the $100 adoption fee. Your contract ensures us that you will give your new four-legged friend the home they deserve. All dogs are neutered or spayed; microchipped, and includes all up-to-date vaccinations prior to going home with you. (If for any reason you find yourself unable to keep a dog you adopted from Forget-Me-Not Inc., we will accept the dog back into our rescue.)
