Buzz: To Recovery and Beyond!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, December 22nd

by Julia Galotti

Buzz is a great big, gentle giant. Unfortunately, that did not keep him from ending up on the streets. 

Weighing in at a very lean 70 lbs., Buzz was picked up by animal control with a dislocated front leg. Most likely, he was hit by a car quite some time ago, as it was clearly an old wound. Furkids decided, rather than amputate, to go ahead and fix his leg. His surgery was a success but he has a long road of recovery ahead. With physical therapy, cold compresses and medicine to help him along, we expect him to make a full recovery. He is also battling his heartworm positive diagnosis as well. Poor guy can't catch a break! Despite it all with his long legs, he is more than happy to meet friends everywhere he goes, and loves to give gentle giant hugs and kisses. His wagging tail is a constant invitation to all that want to meet him and help him. 

Once left alone to fend for himself, he still finds room in his heart to make new friends. Now, he's just looking for...


UPDATE: Kittens with Entropion Ready for Adoption!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, December 22nd

Back in September, we rescued three kittens with Entropion who all needed surgery to correct the issue. Entropion is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward. This can cause an eyelash or hair to irritate and scratch the surface of the eye, leading to corneal ulceration or perforation (PetMD).
We asked for donations to help cover the cost of the surgeries, and many generous supporters answered the call! Blairsville, Blue Ridge and Hiawassee received their corrective surgeries and are doing very well. So well, in fact, that all three are looking for their forever homes!

Happy Holidays from Furkids!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, December 22nd


Dear Friends of Furkids,

The outdoor lights are beginning to twinkle, and I’m getting that sense of joy and anticipation that draw me into the holiday season every year.  What surprises and experiences will this holiday hold?  What blessings am I grateful for as the year draws to a close?  For me and for Furkids, the answer to both questions is you.

In 2016, you stood with us.  When Hurricane Matthew swamped and threatened to kill homeless animals, you helped Furkids give them safety and a way home.  When imprisoned animals were found at two different hoarding cases in metro Atlanta, you helped Furkids give them safety and a way home.  When animals in kill shelters faced their last days, you turned back the clock. 

Furkids has a so much to celebrate this season, and the reasons come back to you. 

You have been the comfort and joy for nearly 5,000 animals in 2016. Put another way, each month this year, your support saved nearly 300 homeless animals and gave them a way home. ...
