Senior Dog About to be Put to Death Needs Our Help

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, November 4th

Save this senior Shih-TzuSENIOR ABOUT TO BE PUT TO SLEEP - NEEDS OUR HELP!!! It's National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and what a timely story...

This 13 year old shih-tzu was brought into a vet to be euthanized yesterday, for no reason - he was their daughter's dog, and was dumped on the parents. He's not sick, just older. The staff didn't have the heart to put him to sleep, and asked us to take him in. He needs to be checked out, get a good grooming and senior bloodwork, then we hope he'll have MANY happy years ahead. Please help us commemorate Adopt a Senior Pet Month, by donating to his care, or offering to foster or adopt him.

We've got to raise money for his care. If just a few kind people help out with a donation of $20 each at, we can get this sweet, old guy the help he needs, so he can enjoy some more quality time. Celebrate senior pets with a gift to this pup in need today; and feel fantastic about making a real difference in a little life.


The Leaves Are Falling, and So Are Our Adoption Fees!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Monday, November 2nd

November can be damp, chilly, and maybe even a little depressing; but we have the antidote - half-price adoptions for all cats and kittens the entire month! It's hard to be gloomy when you're mid-snuggle with a warm purr machine.

Adopt a healthy, fully-vetted, adult cat for just $42.50; or a fun and silly kitten (under 6 months) for $62.50! Adopt two, or even three - you choose. They all have half-price fees! (Our seniors, FIV+ and FeLV+ cats, and Operation Home sponsored cats have NO adoption fees, so don't overlook them when you are looking for new friends.)

Please share this super special with the ones you love. By homing our current Furkids, we'll make room for the inevitable Kitten Season, just around the corner. Help us spread the joy of half-price Warm Fuzzies now, so we can save more lives!

1. Identify a business, artist or experience you feel you could help get donated to our auction. This could be a friend with a restaurant who will donate a certificate or a co-worker with unique ties to a golf resort that can get some free passes. Think outside of the box and get creative! Gift cards and unique experiences like tours and vacations do very well at our auction so if you know someone willing to donate a weekend at their beach house let us know!
