Forrest and Jenny's Place was inspired by two neurologically-challenged cats named Forrest and Jenny. Forrest resembled the childhood portrayal of "Forrest Gump" in the movie, thus, the names. Under normal circumstances, such animals are rarely saved, but someone displayed compassion and adopted Forrest and Jenny. They turned out to be very affectionate and intelligent animals.
Our goals include offering help through a low-cost spay/neuter clinic to curb overpopulation, providing adoption services for displaced animals, and foster care for those who require a place to stay during rehabilitation.
We operate the "Bones and Fishes" feeding program, which targets elderly and low-income individuals who are unable to afford the cost of pet food. Donated food will be distributed to those in need.
The "Friends Fur Life" sponsorship program helps place pets with special needs children, such as those with autism. This program also places pets with troubled teens, giving them the opportunity to enrich their lives by bonding with a pet. Donations offset adoption fees and pet deposits required in some housing facilities.
We also offer educational programs for schools and civic groups which focus on the importance of rescue groups and responsible pet ownership.
