Kitten Season 101

Posted on Friday, March 26th

Kitten Season 101 Furkids rescued 1,377 kittens last year from March - October You can help make a difference! Beat the Heat Spay/Neuter cats before kitten season Trap community cats for TNR Trap-neuter-return is exactly what it sounds like. Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their colony. Kittens/cats who are friendly and socialized may be adopted into homes. Don't Kit-Nap! Find kittens? Don’t panic! Mom is probably searching for food or a safer location. If the kittens are in danger, move them to safe spot no more than 10 feet… READ MORE >

A Harrowing Look: Horrors of Dog Hoarding

Posted on Tuesday, February 9th

A Harrowing Look: Horrors of Dog Hoarding Dozens of dogs saved from extreme neglect need immediate help Last week we received a critical call to rescue 60 dogs in one of the most horrific animal neglect cases in Furkids’ 19-year history.  Left to suffer unthinkable conditions, the hoarded dogs were starved and their health neglected, many with visible ailments and coats matted beyond breed recognition. As if their deplorable living conditions weren’t enough, the innocent pups were all emotionally battered to the core. We are heartbroken to report that sweet Grace (pictured here with Dr. Orlin) did not survive the pain and suffering and crossed the rainbow… READ MORE >

Fostering Saves Lives

Posted on Thursday, December 31st

Fostering Saves Lives In early March, our family received an urgent call from the Furkids Foster Home Coordinator. A litter of five kittens had just arrived and two were deathly ill. As a veterinary technician, my skill set was prepared to take them on--and as a mom, I knew my maternal instincts would somehow play a role in keeping these babies alive.  At just three weeks old, all five kits were suffering upper respiratory infections. Two of them, Captain and Blindbeard, were also presenting much more complicated symptoms than their siblings. They were lethargic, weak, and had severe eye ulcerations. Our days and nights were filled… READ MORE >

Furkids TransFUR Program Expands

Posted on Tuesday, December 29th

Furkids TransFUR Program Expands Giving the gift of life never stops at Furkids.  In 2020, our domestic TransFUR program expanded to the islands of Puerto Rico & St. Croix, bringing more than 170 homeless and abandoned dogs stateside. The islands have been struck with earthquakes, economic hardships and pure devastation during 2020. And in turn, pet abandonment is at an all-time high. With limited shelter resources, the islands are overpopulated with “street dogs” trying to escape the inevitable—death! At Furkids, saving the lives of animals is our core mission—no matter how near or far! Without your support, all of these deserving dogs would have been euthanized and/or… READ MORE >
