The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma

Posted on 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… READ MORE >

It’s Now or Never for Hurricane Irma Animals

Posted on 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.  HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW Adopt a Furkid this weekend, September… READ MORE >

Posted on Friday, July 28th

Summer is always a busy time at Furkids, as the shelter population swells with spring and summer litters and are compounded by owner surrenders during vacation travel season, but this summer made headlines. In June, the entire feline population at Bartow County Animal Control was accidentally exposed to feline distemper. Potentially deadly and incredibly virulent, this diagnosis meant that every cat in the facility would require weeks of careful quarantine and medical care that was… READ MORE >

Urgent Bartow County Rescue of 61 Cats

Posted on Wednesday, June 28th

We’re trying to save 61 lives, and we need you! You might have seen, read, or heard by now that Bartow County Animal Control has had an outbreak of potentially deadly feline panleukopenia - also known as feline distemper or feline parvo. All of the cats in the facility would have to be euthanized unless someone intervened. A licensed Georgia rescue could quarantine and monitor them, under very specific Department of Agriculture guidelines, for 14 days. This would be a huge undertaking, but Furkids had done this before on a smaller scale, several years ago. Even though it’s kitten season… READ MORE >
