The animal rescue and transport group From Forgotten to Forever Rescue and Transport (FFTF) is holding a huge indoor yard sale at the Roswell Mall beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 2. All proceeds from the sale go to FFTF.

There will be furniture, gym equipment, clothes, children’s toys and household items. At 11 a.m., FFTF will be discounting remaining items to be sure they sell everything. FFTF is grateful to those who have donated items, event organizers said, as well as to Anjy Cooper, manager of Roswell Mall, who continues to support the rescue group in any way that she can.

From Forgotten to Forever is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue. It is a foster-based rescue/transport that pulls animals from high-kill shelters, primarily in Roswell and southeast New Mexico. It vets, fosters and transports approximately 50 animals each week to their future homes.

Last year FFTF pulled, vetted and transported 2,300 animals from Roswell and surrounding areas. It takes flights from Roswell airport as well as bi-weekly ground transport. It takes time, manpower and funds to make all of this happen.

FFTF holds fundraisers to help pay for vetting, food, gas, supplies and everything it takes to make sure the animals have what they need.

In an attempt to provide the community with the support they need, FFTF also focuses on leading, promoting and educating the public by providing vaccinations and spay/neuter clinics.

The FFTF team is made up of volunteers, families and benefactors who share the purpose of wanting to help unwanted animals get a second chance.

“Our commitments including managing the animal populations and to create a better world through the no-kill shelter movement,” said Julie Corbell, a volunteer with FFTF. “Our long-term goal is to provide the community with a no-kill shelter.”
