Furkids Saves America!

Posted on Wednesday, July 31st

Furkids Saves America! Did you know Furkids works every day to save the lives of helpless and abandoned animals? We are proud of our recent success story to provide love, care, and comfort to America. That's right; we saved a beautiful young blue-eyed husky, now named America!      America was foud, severely injured and all alone on a busy road. Her injuries included a painful fractured femur that needed immediate medical attention. She was taken to animal control, who contacted her family through her microchip information - but sadly they never came for her. Abandoned, in pain, and lying in a cage, America needed love, care, and attention.     We took action to save America! Our doctors and… READ MORE >

At Furkids, we know that kids respond enthusiastically and look forward to reading with cats as part of our FurTales program. Of course, parents love it to.

Orphan puppies reunite with their mom

Posted on Tuesday, July 2nd

Orphan puppies reunite with their mom On June 17, 2019, six puppies were discovered in an abandoned horse barn; their mama was nowhere around.  The property owner called the Sheriff’s office to pick up the puppies.  They were covered in fleas and dehydrated. The veterinarian estimated their ages to be 3 weeks.

She was in… READ MORE >
