Yes, those are HORNS you hear! We are BLOWING OUR OWN HORNS, loud and clear!
2014 was a BIG year for Furkids. We set a goal to rescue TWO THOUSAND HOMELESS PETS, and managed to take in 2,375! We found FOREVER HOMES for 2,069 animals, an adoption rate 35% higher than the year before.
And we ended 2014 appropriately, with a FLURRY of FREEDOM RIDES and an AVALANCHE of ADOPTIONS. In December alone, 250 pets left Furkids for their own digs...almost DOUBLE our previous average numbers. Thanks to our new initiative, Operation: HOME!, donors can sponsor specific animals by paying all or part of their adoption fees. Sponsorships give these critters a "leg-up" on the adoption ladder; and they have been wildly popular with adopters. Donors love them too - sponsorships are a GREAT way for folks who can't adopt more pets to send some Furkids HOME! We have Operation: HOME! Gift Certificates, as well...
What better way to say, "Happy Valentine's Day!"?
As we dive HEADLONG into 2015, we are so...READ MORE >

April 2014 proved to be a record breaking month for Furkids and Small Dog Rescue - saving 226 animals. In the same month we adopted out 116 animals. Do the math! We have a LOT of animals in need of loving homes. This month we took in some of the MOST difficult medical cases we have ever seen. We rescued dozens of bottle babies orphaned with no chance at survival. Our volunteers and foster homes STEPPED UP and helped save so many lives. We can not thank everyone enough for this huge victory for Georgia's animals. Funding is greatly needed for medical expenses, so if you would like to make a donation in honor of the 226 little lives saved this month please do so below. We will be forever in your gratitude.
