Home is a Furever Commitment

Posted on Thursday, February 20th

Home is a Furever Commitment Celebrating Our 18th Anniversary of Commitment to Saving Lives Yesterday, we ran into a particularly heroic Furkids adopter, Christy T. In May of last year, Christy adopted the one cat that had been with Furkids longer than any other animal in our 18-year history.

Hoping to give these sweet boys a home for Valentine's Day, Furkids sent Hector and Felix on a TransFUR trip north. They arrived on Friday, and were adopted the following Monday.
