It's pretty awesome when we can make life better for animals and people! Our latest video, Kitty Kommercial, has received some great feedback after making it to the front page of Reddit.
The video was originally posted to Youtube and our Facebook page, and has over 35,000 (and counting) views collectively. It features Furkids volunteer, Paul Preston, using traditional, yet cheesy salesman tactics to find "furever" homes for the Furkids shelter animals.
The story of our viral video was even picked up by The Huffington Post, the AJC, Mother Nature Network and digital media news and entertainment sites, BuzzFeed and UPROXX! We're excited about this, because this kind of publicity tends to lead to more adoptions, volunteers and donations, which means we can save more animals in need!
Thank you to all who shared this video!

Buzz is a great big, gentle giant. Unfortunately, that did not keep him from ending up on the streets.
Weighing in at a very lean 70 lbs., Buzz was picked up by animal control with a dislocated front leg. Most likely, he was hit by a car quite some time ago, as it was clearly an old wound. Furkids decided, rather than amputate, to go ahead and fix his leg. His surgery was a success but he has a long road of recovery ahead. With physical therapy, cold compresses and medicine to help him along, we expect him to make a full recovery. He is also battling his heartworm positive diagnosis as well. Poor guy can't catch a break! Despite it all with his long legs, he is more than happy to meet friends everywhere he goes, and loves to give gentle giant hugs and kisses. His wagging tail is a constant invitation to all that want to meet him and help him.
Once left alone to fend for himself, he still finds room in his heart to make new friends. Now, he's just looking for...

Dear Friends of Furkids,
The outdoor lights are beginning to twinkle, and I’m getting that sense of joy and anticipation that draw me into the holiday season every year. What surprises and experiences will this holiday hold? What blessings am I grateful for as the year draws to a close? For me and for Furkids, the answer to both questions is you.
In 2016, you stood with us. When Hurricane Matthew swamped and threatened to kill homeless animals, you helped Furkids give them safety and a way home. When imprisoned animals were found at two different hoarding cases in metro Atlanta, you helped Furkids give them safety and a way home. When animals in kill shelters faced their last days, you turned back the clock.
Furkids has a so much to celebrate this season, and the reasons come back to you.
You have been the comfort and joy for nearly 5,000 animals in 2016. Put another way, each month this year, your support saved nearly 300 homeless animals and gave them a way home. ...READ MORE >
