Callan and Corduff - Brothers Reunited

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, July 23rd

Callan and Corduff were excited and relieved as they took their freedom ride in the back of a volunteer's car from a high-kill shelter on March 4. They were becoming Furkids dogs! They knew they were safe and were ready to begin their journeys to find forever homes! Though the brothers enjoyed each others company, they also did well apart in other playgroups, so the staff felt comfortable placing them in separate homes. Just one month after their rescue, the Ramirez family found and adopted Corduff. He would be the first dog for the family, and they were thrilled. Callan was excited for his brother and knew it would one day be his turn.

A few months rolled by and Callan was still available. Friend after friend was adopted and Callan kept waiting for that special family. It was obvious fate had bigger plans for him.

One day in July, Mrs. Ramirez called our shelter to ask a simple question about Corduff’s paperwork. While on the phone our vet tech commented, “I have his brother...

Show your Stars and Stripes - Become a Furkids Pet-triot Today!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Tuesday, June 30th

As we dive headlong into our favorite summer celebration, everyone at Furkids wishes you a fun and festive Fourth. We are celebrating in our own way, with a virtual PET-TRIOT Party, to benefit our Emergency Medical Fund. And we hope you'll join us!

Furkids is known for our commitment to the homeless pets that others cannot help. The sick and injured, the sad and shy, the hard-to-adopt black cats and dogs, and even the "unique and beautiful-in-their-own-way" animals like our dear Lemond. We are proud of this distinction, but it comes at a very high price. Just last week we wrote the largest check ever, in the history of Furkids, to one of our partner vets - it was for more than $53,000!

Tigger is a recent recipient of Furkids' dedication to animals in dire need . She came to us with a horrible injury to her tail. It had to be amputated, and she required a lengthy hospital stay. Tigger is now recovering in foster care, and doing well. Hundreds of other Furkids have similar...
