Two weeks ago, Furkids took in 63 Hurricane Matthew victims who had been affected by severe flooding in the Carolinas. We asked for contributions to help with the care of these helpless animals who had lost everything, and our fans stepped up. Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to provide for all the Hurricane Matthew dogs and cats who came into our shelters. Many of the animals were placed into safe, warm, loving foster homes and are settling in well and recovering.
Again, we want to thank all our supporters, volunteers, fosters and staff who contributed toward this astonishing rescue. We are so thankful for each and every one of you. If you would like to make a donation toward the animals still in the program, please visit furkids.org/donation.
The Hurricane Matthew animals will be available for adoption soon. Follow us on Facebook for updates!

Do you recognize this beautiful black and white boy in Renee Cardona’s arms? It’s Jesse, a former Furkid, now living with his forever family. In this picture he is receiving his award for being the best cat in the household pet class at the Cotton States Cat Show. Jesse is one of many Furkids who have had brief but fulfilling careers as show cats with CFA and TICA, organizations who celebrate both domestic household pets and purebred cats.
On November 5th & 6th Furkids will again participate in the annual Cotton States CFA Championship & Household Pet Cat Show at the Infinite Energy Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, GA 30097. Hours are 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, 9 AM to 4 PM on Sunday. This show is known for presenting the best of all the feline breeds, but the household pet class has become very popular with exhibitors, show visitors, and especially the judges. Because this class has no breed standard for comparing the cats, each judge makes their choices...READ MORE >
At Furkids, we love it when our community gets involved, be it local businesses, organizations, service groups or schools. Hope Knight, an art teacher at Dolvin Elementary School, found a great way to get her students interested in helping Furkids animals through art!
It is a community service project called “PetpARTners”, and the goal, according to Knight, “is to raise awareness of the homeless pet population in our community and bring in more adopting families and donations.”
Knight’s students look at the adoptable pets on furkids.org and create beautiful portraits based on the profile photos of each pet. “We are sharing them in our school social media sites and also plan on displaying then in local businesses,” said Knight. She says she got the idea upon visiting the dog shelter for the first time over Summer Break.READ MORE >
