A Chance to Grow - Be a Foster Parent!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Monday, January 25th

“It matters to this one, she deserves a chance to grow.

It matters to this one, I can’t save them all I know.

It matters to this one, to be what she can be.

It matters to this one, and so it matters to me.”

 

Furkids provides food, medical care, and ensures the animals are marketed for adoption though our website, adoption team, Petsmart and Petco stores. 

Who needs a foster home? 

  • Moms with babies, to allow the babies to grow and develop. Many times a spare bathroom for a mother and her babies is all that is needed.
  • The animal is a senior citizen and in his or her golden years. Senior animals are very hard to place in adoptive homes, but it is a joy to share in their lives.
  • Special needs animals may need medication, rest from a surgery or procedure, or may have physical disabilities.
  • Puppies and kittens, which may be orphans, and need a safe place to grow.

FEATURED CAT:  LANGLEY

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, February 11th

Langley is a special tabby with gorgeous big green eyes. It’s okay if you get lost in them, we do too!  Langley is good with other cats and is often found sitting pretty for everyone to see. He is a big boy that is a softy at heart.  He has very distinct stripes with a white underbelly. He is neutered and up to date on vaccines and ready for his fur-ever home! Come meet Langley and he will show you all the love he has to offer.

The adoption fee for FIV+ cats is $0. That's right $0 for a full-vetted, healthy, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped kitty friend that happens to have FIV. But wait, there's more! Adopt an FIV+ cat and receive one-year of free-vetting at our Doraville cat shelter for this cat. We want to show you that FIV+ cats are just like every other cat. Let us prove it to you and adopt an FIV+ cat today! Learn more at https://furkids.org/cat-adoptions/fiv-cats

FEATURE DOG: MAC

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, February 11th

Mac is a handsome 5-year old, tan Cardigan Welsh Corgi mix dog. He’s a huge bundle of joy even though he weighs just 16 lbs.   Mac is good with other dogs, gets along with cats, loves going for walks and, best of all, is a cuddle bug.  His favorite sleeping spot is in bed with his human. Mac lived in foster care for some time and was housebroken in the home. Of course with any new pet, you should expect a period of adjustment as he learns your routine.   Mac will be a great fit for an adult home because the unpredictable behavior of children makes him nervous.  Mac is a happy boy and is forever grateful for being rescued by Furkids, but he longs for a forever home.

Mac's adoption fee is $275.  Senior citizens age 62 and older and military personnel receive a 15% discount on dog adoption fees.   If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting Mac, please submit an online Adoption Application at https://furkids.org/dog-adoptions... READ MORE >

MENTAL HEALTH WEEK AT GEORGIA TECH

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, February 11th

If you were lucky enough to attend college, you remember it was not all parties and fun.  Studying, mid-terms, classes, expenses all create stress.  See what some lucky dogs from Furkids did to help the students at Georgia Tech earlier this month!

On Monday, February 8, several fabulous Furkids dogs took a field trip to Georgia Tech as part of Mental Health Week. We’re not sure who had a better time – the students who played with and walked the dogs, or the dogs who received all the attention!  This annual event, which includes yoga, dog walking, massages and pillow fights, is a great way to reduce stress before final exams and a great outing for Furkids dogs!  For more group opportunities to volunteer or work with Furkids, click here…https://furkids.org/volunteer/group-opportunities
