Safety Tips for July 4th

Perhaps you are considering staying at home and planning a get-together with friends and family. Or, you may want to go check out your local professional fireworks display.

Pippa Needs Our Help

Posted on Wednesday, June 12th

Hi, my name is Pippa. I am 13 years old and the nice people at Furkids have given me a place to call home until a forever family is found. I am so lucky! I was rescued in a Little 5 Points parking lot a few years ago. They say I was near death, dehydrated & starved when I was found. The people at Furkids took great care of me and I am much better now. I am a hall cat at the shelter. This means I get to roam around the lobby and front office and greet visitors. I… READ MORE >

Furkids shelter managers were called to the help. What they saw was an injured, desperate dog, abandoned and barking for defense – and for help. Lauren Frost, one of the managers, returned to earn the dog’s trust. Slowly, the dog stopped barking, calmed down, and allowed Lauren to be her friend (pictured left). Furkids brought her into its program, named her Sasha and placed her into a loving foster home. Sasha was spayed,… READ MORE >
