Meet Bubbles

Posted by Furkids | Thursday, May 30th

Bubbles recently arrived at Furkids/Small Dog Rescue after a good samaritan found her standing alone in the pouring rain! Due to her chronic medical conditions they were unable to keep her permanently. We are grateful to her rescuer for saving this sweet girl and reaching out to us! Bubbles has only seen neglect her entire life. We are here to help her now! 

When Bubbles was found she was barely standing, hungry, soaking wet, and limping. Bubbles has many medical issues and conditions needing care, including: 


- Chronic Arthritis

- Severely neglected teeth and gums

- Eye issues, possibly cataracts 

- Multiple lumps on her head

- An injured leg from a previous trauma 

- Severe UTI (which is clearing up with medications)

As you can see she has a long road ahead of her...

She is feeling much better and now barking for attention. We will give her a better quality of life and eventually a foster or forever home! We need your help to care for her! Please consider donating a few...


Featured Furkid - Vernon

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, May 28th

I'm Vernon, a 35-pound tri-color Beagle Mix with lots of personality and style. I'm a spunky seven-year-old guy who is more than ready to settle into a home with the leadership of a loving family. I'm sure a perfect match is out there just waiting for my friendship and great company. And I'm grateful to know that - especially because I was first a stray and then being held in a high-kill facility. Kind hearts from Small Dog Rescue reached out to me thankfully. Now I'm in good care, but I am counting the days until I can settle comfortably into my forever home. Apply now to adopt Vernon!


Featured Furkid - Angela 11223

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, May 28th

Date of Birth: 1/26/2008

Angela is definitely a Furkids Angel! This stunning black and orange tortie female came to Furkids in May 2011 when her owner passed away. Angela is the official door greeter; she waits at the door to give you all the love in the world. Her favorite spot is in your lap, but she also loves to play in the water when the faucet is turned on. She is a great helper; she happily gets involved in whatever tasks you are doing. You can’t ignore Angela's beautiful blue-green eyes because she will let you know that she is there. Sweet, gentle Angela gets along well with other cats, or would be fine as an only kitty who will give you her undivided attention. She wants nothing more than to find her forever home! Please consider adopting Angela before someone else scoops her up! Apply now!
