“Home, for good and all.  Home, for ever and ever.”  - Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Posted by Furkids Admin | Tuesday, December 1st

In the classic story, A Christmas Carol, the character of Tiny Tim is a shining symbol of Hope and the power of Good.  A beloved little boy who, in the face of crippling hardships that threaten to end his very life, beamed forth his wish that God bless us - every one.

And so it is with our own Tiny Tim, rescued by Gwinnett Animal Control from an owner who tortured him by starvation.  This emaciated dog was delivered to Russell Ridge Animal Hospital weighing just 30 pounds- only half of his normal body weight.  

Little Tim could not even walk because his muscles, damaged by lack of food, simply could not support his frail body.  The professionals at Russell Ridge came to his rescue, giving him small doses of food, physical therapy, and a lot of love. And through it all, Tiny Tim’s tenacious spirit shone as, in his own way, he expressed gratitude for his blessings.  

Now safe with Furkids, Tim continues his return to health and is learning to walk without pain.  We hope Tim...

Dear Santa, It’s Me…Kimmie

Posted by Furkids Admin | Tuesday, December 1st

Dear Santa, It's Me...KIMMIE.I Have Been a Very Good Girl. But...

I'm still homeless, Santa. I'm not even two years old, and I've lived in two different kitty shelters for my entire life. I've never had a family of my own, even though I just love humans, and other kitties, too. I've never gotten a Christmas present. And I want just one - this one thing - with all of my heart...

Please, Santa, would you help me find a home?

I'm all dressed up, in this bow I found, it feels silly; but I hear I look "cute". I'm wearing my best tuxedo outfit, which I wear all the time...being well-dressed is, I'm told, the key to success. And my Furkids friends tell me that my adoption fee is just $12, because I'm "featured" in the Twelve Days of Christmas promotion. I don't know what that is, but I hear it's a "bargain", and humans like bargains. (During December we will featuring select cats that have been overlooked. Their adoption fees will be $12. Kimmie is the first!)

Please, Santa, can it be my...
