Show your Stars and Stripes - Become a Furkids Pet-triot Today!

Posted on Tuesday, June 30th

As we dive headlong into our favorite summer celebration, everyone at Furkids wishes you a fun and festive Fourth. We are celebrating in our own way, with a virtual PET-TRIOT Party, to benefit our Emergency Medical Fund. And we hope you'll join us! Furkids is known for our commitment to the homeless pets that others cannot help. The sick and injured, the sad and shy, the hard-to-adopt black cats and dogs, and even the "unique and beautiful-in-their-own-way" animals like our dear Lemond. We are proud of this distinction, but it comes at a very high price. Just last week we… READ MORE >

Posted on Tuesday, June 30th

It's BAAACK...our beloved 9 Lives for 9 Dollars Campaign! For the month of July, all cats 6 months or older have $9 adoption fees. That means cute little Rajah pictured right can come home for only $9. These are altered, vaccinated, healthy and happy Furkids! Senior cats and FIV+ kitties are excluded, because they already have zero adoption fees. Nada. Zilch. Oh, did we mention our Kitten Special? Half-price adoption fees on all littles under 6 months. That means you can adopt two, for the price of one! Have we lost our minds? Well, here's the back story. Furkids saved a lot… READ MORE >

Safety Tips for a Safe July 4th

Posted on Monday, June 29th

Like many Americans, you may be planning to have a festive Fourth of July. Along with barbeques and day at the beach, no July holiday celebration would be complete without enjoying the fireworks that celebrate the birth of our nation. 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. While putting the finishing touches on your planned celebration, take a moment to consider your pets. Unlike people, pets don’t associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with celebrations. Pets… READ MORE >

Valentine and her growing needs

Posted on Monday, June 15th

Little Valentine could not even lift her hind end when she arrived at Furkids as an 8 week old puppy. She scooted around on her front paws, dragging her rear. Facebook followers may recall her first set of wheels constructed by a Furkids volunteer in the garage. That got Valentine up and rolling. Then we saw what needed tweaking and eventually Valentine graduated to the Walkin' Wheels® she now uses. Not only does this wheelchair allow Valentine greater mobility and use of her four legs, but it also helped to strengthen her muscles and now Valentine is able to stand… READ MORE >
