Exquisite Eve’s Urgent Rescue

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd

Exquisite Eve’s Urgent Rescue In pain with a shattered pelvis and labeled URGENT, Eve was forced to languish in a crowded animal shelter in rural Georgia. In desperate need of medical care, Eve clearly needed surgery as well as a long recovery period – something animal control facilities are not able to do and sadly forces them to euthanize sweet, loving dogs and cats like Eve. With time quickly running out, Eve had to get out of animal control and out of pain. Thankfully, Furkids was alerted to her plight and we rescued her from the shelter and immediately got her to the vet.… READ MORE >

Open Your Home — and Your Heart — to an FIV+ Cat

Posted on Friday, April 12th

Open Your Home — and Your Heart — to an FIV+ Cat When Chris Poole adopted his now-famous feline Marmalade in 2013, he wasn’t aware that the adorable orange tabby kitten had feline immunodeficiency virus, or FIV. Today, despite his diagnosis, Marmalade is a happy, healthy 6-year-old cat who snuggles and plays with his brother, Cole — a fluffy black feline who doesn’t have FIV.

However, FIV+ cats are still… READ MORE >

Posted on Monday, April 8th

Happy Tails from the Lamar County Puppy Mill Dogs On March 14th, Furkids joined the Atlanta Humane Society in the rescue of 44 dogs from a puppy mill in Lamar County, GA. The dogs were living in horrid conditions, covered in their own urine and excrement in muddy outdoor pens. They did not have access to food or clean water. Furkids took in 10 of the dogs, while the others were rescued by Atlanta Humane Society and Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta. It took us several weeks to get these poor, neglected animals ready to be adopted. Many of them had horribly matted fur, ear and eye infections, badly… READ MORE >
