Yellow Jackets Have Hearts – GA Tech Students Raise Awareness

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity and the Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority on Georgia Tech’s Campus hold a philanthropy event every year. This year they invited us to be a big part of it!   Paws for a Cause was held on April 21 on Georgia Tech’s beautiful campus. Students were able to learn about rescue animals and socialize with adoptable dogs for a $5 donation. A welcomed break for the students as they enter finals week.   The donations were split between Furkids and Breast Cancer Awareness. The students produced the event and it was a fabulous success raising more than $800 for… READ MORE >

And They Lived Happily Ever After…

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

We LOVE these Happy Tales, and we know you do, too! Enjoy a double feature of happiness. AYCEE and CARZ were found in a junkyard, behind an AAMCO Car Care Center; along with their tiny sibling, BEEP. The kittens were in horrible shape…snotty, emaciated, flea-infested, and filthy. The angel who found them was a woman who worked in the shop. She called to see if Furkids could take them in. This was last year, during full-blown kitten season. We had no available foster homes to care for these sad little creatures, so their rescuer graciously offered to foster them. We… READ MORE >

Some call it foster failure, we call it forever fostering. The Reynolds family has been wonderful! Volunteering their time and home to our animals for the past year. First they brought home Mittens (left) when we sent out a plea. She was part of a large intake we did from a person with too many animals. She was shy and scared and the Reynolds helped her. They actually fell in love with her and adopted her, but the story gets better! A few months later her sister named Girl (right) was still in need of a foster home, so they… READ MORE >

Clady is a very sick little lady trying to stay strong

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

*********SWEET CLADY – SHE’S A VERY SICK LADY********* We’re Trying HARD to Save Her, But She Needs YOUR Help, Too! CLADY, a SWEET, little SHIH TZU, was DUMPED by her “owners” at a HIGH-KILL rural shelter, because she was “unable to train”. We thought she had suffered horrific BURNS, and no telling what else, because her SKIN was so INFLAMED. It was actually too HOT to barely touch. Initial exams identified skin infections, a total of FIVE DIFFERENT ORGANISMS, doing battle on the surface of her poor little body. Pictured left is the day we took her into the program (6… READ MORE >

Would you adopt an FIV+ cat?

Posted on Wednesday, April 29th

Would you adopt an FIV (feline immunodeficieny virus) cat? from kristopher chandroo on Vimeo. Furkids is one of the only rescue groups in the Southeast dedicated to rescuing and placing FIV+ cats. Through public awareness and education, our goal is to place our FIV+ cats into loving, permanent homes where they can flourish. The first thing to realize is that adopting an FIV+ cat is virtually the same as adopting any other cat — they are affectionate, beautiful, funny, playful, and special in their own unique ways.FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) attacks the immune system, and as a result, the cat is unable to fight… READ MORE >
