Junie was Broken, but Now has a Home!

Posted on Thursday, February 27th

Junie was Broken, but Now has a Home! Tiny Kitten Junie was found abandoned, lying on the side of the road and shivering in the rain. It was clear that she had given up on trying to make it. Her rescuers picked her up and tried to see if she could stand, and she couldn’t. X-rays confirmed both of Junie’s hind legs were broken. One was so badly injured it had to be amputated, and veterinarians where concerned her remaining hind leg might have nerve damage so extensive it might never be functional. But through Junie’s unbreakable will and the care of our medical team, she made an amazing recovery.

Home is a Furever Commitment

Posted on Thursday, February 20th

Home is a Furever Commitment Celebrating Our 18th Anniversary of Commitment to Saving Lives Yesterday, we ran into a particularly heroic Furkids adopter, Christy T. In May of last year, Christy adopted the one cat that had been with Furkids longer than any other animal in our 18-year history. She adopted Confetti, who had come to Furkids in 2004, and been with us for over 14 years! Confetti came to Furkids when she was only two. Over the years, she was adopted and then returned several times due to some potty habits that are difficult for anyone to cope with. It broke our hearts to see her… READ MORE >

Posted on Tuesday, February 18th

Nitro Takes a Deep Breath - Volume! We love to share the amazing transformations of the animals we rescue, but sometimes the difference between "before" and "after" rescue isn't something you can see. When little Nitro came to us, she had a terrible upper respiratory infection. Just listen to her struggle to breathe in this video - and then listen to how far she has come! Not only has Nitro been ill, but her siblings also are recovering from intestinal woes. They are all getting healthy, thanks to veterinary care and medications from the Furkids medical team in our new veterinary clinic in Cumming - and thanks to their foster… READ MORE >

Valentine Road Trip to Love and a Home

Posted on Thursday, February 13th

Valentine Road Trip to Love and a Home Valentine's Day was approaching fast last year, and FIV+ brothers Hector and Felix had been waiting for a loving forever home for far too long. FIV+ cats suffer from the outdated notion that they are ‘ill’, when they can actually live a normal life span, and can even live with FIV- cats. Hoping to give these sweet boys a home for Valentine's Day, Furkids sent Hector and Felix on a TransFUR trip north. They arrived on Friday, and were adopted the following Monday. After months and months in a shelter with no home or people to love, Hector and Felix got both in less than 72… READ MORE >
