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 >

Scruffy’s Road Home

Posted on Tuesday, December 29th

Scruffy’s Road Home "I was dumped at a rural county shelter, and I knew I was doomed." "I mean, who would take a chance on a blind, one-eyed, senior dog with multiple cancerous tumors covered in his own filth? I heard them whisper the word euthanize and I knew my time was running out. I actually felt a sense of relief after all these years of neglect. My hope for a sweet life had run dry and I was ready to cross the Rainbow Bridge….until Furkids saved my life!” Furkids received a plea for help about Scruffy and his scheduled euthanasia. With his life on the line,… READ MORE >
