Lost and abandoned animals in the Laguna Madre area have found their voice in Friends of Animal Rescue (FOAR) on South Padre Island. As co-founders Jacky Conrad, Catherine Carter, and Sheree Donovan explained, the group’s mission is, “to assist homeless animals in finding forever homes and reuniting pets with their owners.”

The Friends of Animal Rescue displayed their commitment to that mission with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday evening, celebrating the opening of a resale dubbed Rescue Me Resale Shop located at 4908 Padre Blvd. Proceeds from the shop will benefit the non-profit’s efforts.
