Posted on Tuesday, January 21st

Top 10 Moments of 2019 As we begin 2020, we’re reflecting one last time on 2019 – a very historic year for Furkids! We moved to our new home and still saved a record number of lives! Here are our favorite moments from 2019. None of this could have happened without the generous help of our supporters, like you! #1: Moved headquarters and cat shelter to a home of our own We said a bittersweet good-bye to our Pleasantdale cat shelter, where over 35,000 lives were saved, closing the doors on our home of 15 years. Now, we are looking forward to the lives we’ll save… READ MORE >

Furkids Saved Me: Scruffles, Retired Alley Cat

Posted on Sunday, December 22nd

Furkids Saved Me: Scruffles, Retired Alley Cat Hi, I'm Scruffles! I’d been homeless pretty much all my life, and it was getting harder and harder to survive. I had to keep moving from place to place. Scary people chased me, and I got in to all sorts of trouble. I was hungry, and I was cold and wet a lot too. My ears are nicked, my tail has been broken and is crooked, and my ear hurt so badly for so long that now I have a permanent head tilt. I look like a mess. But one day when I was hiding under a house, a nice lady… READ MORE >

Posted on Wednesday, December 18th

Home for the Holidays - A Big Year for Furkids As 2019 winds down, we can't help but feel blessed and thrilled for the progress Furkids has made just this year alone, thanks, in part, to you. We have saved more than 4,100 cats and dogs to date - that's 757 more than we did at this point in 2018. Each one has a unique story – a broken heart, a devastating injury, a fear of pain or hunger when Furkids changes their lives. With your help, we have managed to not only just save these souls, but to have healed them, inside and out, and found loving homes for them. That is our mission, and I… READ MORE >

Furkids Shine at 2019 Cotton States Cat Show

Posted on Sunday, November 24th

Furkids Shine at 2019 Cotton States Cat Show Did you know that Furkids has award-winning cats available for adoption? Yes, some of our rescue kitties are Cotton States Cat Show award winners! Our volunteer team entered six current Furkids and three adopted Furkids in the Household Division at the Cotton States Cat show recently, and all six of our Fur-Kitties made the finals in at least one ring. Two even made the finals in seven out of eight judgings! The Household Division is a difficult one to judge. There are no set standards so the eight judges simply evaluate each cat on cleanliness, fitness, and purrsonality. In addition,… READ MORE >
