Big Changes for Furkids

Posted on Thursday, May 28th

These past 13 years have seen so many positive changes for Furkids. One of the most positive parts of our evolution is that we’ve outgrown our logos, both the Furkids cat logo and the Small Dog Rescue dog logo.  We knew Furkids needed a logo that reflects not just who we are, but who we aspire to be, and we knew that it would take some time to develop that new identity.  We’ve been working on our new identity for a few years, now, and have been through an exhaustive process.    We considered broad concepts and the language that… READ MORE >

Posted on Monday, May 25th

Rescuers say it all the time, "Now I've seen everything." But Mom Cat Acacia just laughed; and said "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" To prove her point, Acacia gave birth to four babies. In a nest, in a tree. Yep, the clever stray found a safe and cozy hidey-hole and delivered Spruce, Sylvan, Willow, and Hemlock, twenty feet up, away from prying human eyes The property owner, who had been feeding Mom, guessed that Acacia had been coming and going from the nest for just over a week. We knew that, if there really were babies up there, they would… READ MORE >
