The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, September 13th

As we look into the sweet, sometimes-bedraggled faces of 120 rescued cats and dogs from coastal Georgia, we can't stop crying tears of gratitude and saying thank you to our Irma heroes! What amazing acts of kindness and determination you showed. 

The miracles happened by the truckload and planeload, here in Atlanta. Today, we have 120 animal souls saved from almost certain death. On the coast, their caregivers loved them enough to get them to rescue - even setting aside their own evacuation plans to help. In the air and on the ground, our volunteers and staff kept the evacuations coming.  In Atlanta, our heroic staff and volunteers worked to exhaustion to take in and care for helpless animals. You are all heroes!




Two volunteer drivers in a rented van and three volunteer pilots in their own planes transported 120 dogs and cats to Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters from animal control shelters in six Irma danger zones in Georgia. Animals who had no...


It’s Now or Never for Hurricane Irma Animals

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, September 7th

Friends, we need your help! Animal control operations in the danger zone have been flooded with cats and dogs whose owners had to escape ahead of Hurricane Irma. Furkids already has taken in more than 20 dogs abandoned in south Georgia. Tomorrow, we open our doors to about 50 cats and dogs from shelters in Effingham and Long Counties. People can run, but there's little chance for helpless animals to escape. They're terrified and in terrible danger!  Last Fall, Furkids rescued 100+ animals from Hurricane Matthew, and we want to help again. 


Adopt a Furkid this weekend, September 9 and 10, during PetCo's National Adoption Weekend. When you adopt, you make room for Irma's furry refugees and Furkids gets credit from PETCO to help more animals. Find us this weekend at PETCO locations in Alpharetta, Crabapple, Holcomb Bridge Road, Sandy Springs, Smyrna. We've dropped our adoption fees for this weekend as an incentive. Our shelters are also open for...


Spike has Spirit!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, June 30th

Hi, I’m Spike. I only just arrived to Furkids earlier this week. Furkids got a call came to rescue me and my two fur-siblings. They found me outside in the garbage-filled backyard where we lived. The Furkids vets said I am sick and have Parvovirus, but my humans never took me to the vet to get a check-up, so how was I supposed to know? I also was suffering from Heat Stroke from being left out in the summer sun with nowhere to go. I’m a Poodle with black hair, so I get hot pretty easily.

Furkids got to me and the two dogs I lived with just in time. I am being carefully monitored, but I have a long road to recovery. Please help my friends and me get the care we need; the estimated costs are $1500! Donate now at and follow Furkids on Facebook for my updates. 


Shenandoah and Trooper Need Help

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, June 16th

I’m Shenandoah and I need some help.
I’ve had this awful, scratchy feeling in my eyes since I was a baby. It feels like something is always in my eyes, and no matter how hard I rub or scratch them back, it never goes away.

My siblings and I were rescued by Furkids one day when we were trying to find shelter at a playground. When we arrived at their shelter, we were taken to a room with a doctor and examined. They said that I was born with a rare condition where all my eyelashes grow the wrong way. That explains the constant pain! They said that surgery would fix my eyes, but I have had surgery three times and it isn’t working.

I was taken to a great foster home with my sister and lots of other rescued cats. My foster mom is the best! She gives me lots of love and treats, which definitely distracts me from all the pain and treatments they are trying. Most recently, I saw an Ophthalmology Specialist who said they are going to try a cryosurgery to correct my condition....
