Furkids has already found 30 dogs homes this month, even for some "harder to place" dogs like Trooper. Trooper was found starving to death,
left in a crate in the middle of a busy road. Because of this traumatic experience, he had exhibited some behavior that turned potential adopters off, but what those people didn't know was that he was just acting out because he was terrified.
These "hard to place" dogs are animals that have been in our program for some time and have special circumstances that the average adopter may not be interested in accommodating, or they are dogs that don't show well in a kennel. Animals thrive when they are placed in homes that suit their needs.
We are asking for help advocating for these dogs. We know that perfect homes are out there waiting for these dogs, but we have to be the voices of these animals in order to find them. Please be a champion for these dogs. Create or share posts on social media, foster,...
August is just around the corner, but the last day of July is what it’s all about! National Mutt Day is coming up and we want to celebrate all the mutts in our shelter and in the world!
National Mutt Day was founded 11 years ago by Colleen Paige. Paige wanted to shed some light on mixed-breed dogs who are often overlooked. There is such a high demand for “designer breeds” that many unwanted mutts go into shelters and never come out. Always adopt. There are so many dogs in shelters waiting for forever homes.
Furkids loves all dogs, designers and mutts alike, but on Sunday, we will be showcasing our perfectly mixed-up pooches on our social media pages. Post a picture of your Furkids mutt and tag Furkids with the hashtag #FurkidsMutt and we’ll share it! Don’t have a furry family member to share? Check out our dogs any time at furkids.org/dog-adoptions and fill out an adoption application. Your best friend is waiting for you!

Last week, we sent an email addressing the urgent need to raise money for our Emergency Rescue Fund. We want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far! With your incredible contributions, we have raised $10,000!
What's even more amazing is that a generous donor saw the $8,000 match being offered and is giving $7,000 to make it a $15,000 total match!
We're only $5,000 away from the match goal! If you have not already, please consider making a donation to the Furkids Emergency Rescue Fund. Furkids will make your donated dollars go farther!
Already in 2016, we have saved the lives of 1213 cats and 401 dogs! In June alone, we have saved over 200 animals from death. Furkids is committed to saving lives, including the difficult cases that other rescues just can't take on. We believe that the heartworm-positive, extremely sick, abused, surgical case animals deserve a second chance, too.

Tetched By the Heat? You Decide!
We ran some hot adoption specials last month, but this August, we're on FIRE! Furkids is in a full-on Forever Home frenzy. We have too many cats and kittens, and we know a flood of fall felines is just beyond the horizon.
We've reduced adoption fees in three ways:
1. ALL kittens, aged 4 months to one year are just $9!
2. Our "little" kittens, less than 4 months, have 1/2 price adoption fees - just $62.50.
3. ALL of our adult "Shelter Dwellers" have $9 adoption fees. Visit the shelter this week!
Reminder, our FIV+ cats, seniors (8 yrs+), and sponsored kitties have no adoption fees at all!
These sizzling specials are in effect until the last day of August, but don't wait! Stay cool, and visit our felines online. Or grab your flip-flops, and head over to the cat shelter Mondays or Saturdays from noon to 5 PM; or Wednesdays from noon to 8 PM.
You can also meet some cool kittens this Saturday, August 8th, from 10 AM to 2 PM; at any of our three...
