City the Kitty Hopes for a Second Chance at Life

Posted by Furkids Admin | Saturday, April 30th

City the kitty has known much pain and difficulty in his short life. He came to a local animal control, suffering from abuse that left him with a shattered leg, broken tail, and both upper canines broken at the gum line. City made his way to Furkids and its partner vets, where he was evaluated for care. While waiting to be strong enough for surgery, he would lie on his side and eat food from the bowl, as it was too painful to stand for any length of time.

Through all the pain and waiting, City is always receptive to a gentle voice and a kind touch. He endured surgery to remove his shattered and painful leg, further evaluate his tail injury, and remove the two broken teeth. He is FIV+, but his FIV+ status doesn’t matter to Furkids; he deserves a second chance at a good life, and to know that people can be kind. 

City came through his surgery, and is now recovering. Please help support his ‘second chance’ by donating whatever you can toward his surgeries, estimated at $1200. ...

Breast Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, April 21st

Chanty came to Furkids when her owners abandoned her as they no longer had time for her. A compassionate neighbor took care of her, and brought her to Furkids.  Upon an exam, it was found that, at 8 years old, she had never been spayed. In addition, several lumps were found on her chest, and it was determined surgery was needed.  It is obvious that Chanty had not received the care she deserved, and that lack of care contributed to her cancer development.

Breast cancer occurs fairly frequently in un-spayed female dogs. Spaying can largely reduce the risk of developing this type of cancer, especially if the dog is spayed before it has an opportunity to go into heat. 

Furkids wants to save Chanty, and we need your help.  Chanty’s surgery will cost several hundred dollars.  Please donate here, and give Chanty an opportunity to live a happy life! https://furkids.org/donation

Jackson Galaxy Picks Furkids

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, April 20th

The Jackson Galaxy Foundation has chosen Furkids to participate in “Cat Pawsitive,” an intensive Training Program to help cats in shelters put their ‘best pawforward’ in finding a forever home. Furkids is one of only nine shelters across the country that were invited to participate, and we are so excited! Developed by Jackson Galaxy and a team of animal behavior experts, Cat Pawsitive is a training program aimed at enriching day-to-day life for cats in shelters, building social skills, promoting the human-cat bond, and improving “adoptability” by reducing stress-related behaviors.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to learn new training methods from Jackson Galaxy,” says Samantha Shelton, founder and Executive Director of Furkids. “We are confident we will gain insights and tools to help us achieve more adoptions of our shelter cats, keep them active and happy, and enrich their environment while they wait for forever homes. It is our goal to remove...
