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-catsREAD MORE >
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 >
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!

What happens to a poor puppy with no food, medicine, health care or love?
It’s not unusual to find a possum going through the trash to scavenge food. But when the possum turns out to be a small puppy, it is heart-breaking. Klar is eight weeks old, and has known pain his entire, short life – the pain of abuse, hunger, and sarcoptic mange, which is caused by small mites that cause unbearable itching and hair loss.
The wonderful person who took a closer look is a hero to Klar. As he approached the foraging ‘possum,’ the puppy ran toward him joyfully. Klar was taken to the local animal control, and Furkids stepped in to rescue this poor boy.
Klar is being treated for his skin condition, and is on special food to help him grow. Help Klar feel like the puppy he is by donating in rememberance of a special pet in your life at https://furkids.org/donation/memorial-donationREAD MORE >
