Furkids, Georgia’s largest no-kill animal shelter, is joining PetFinder.com to celebrate Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable Pet Week. Pets that are different are often over looked, and this week we encourage you to consider adopting a pet that is special in it’s own way.
There are many factors that make a pet seem “less adoptable.” Breed prejudice, special needs, and ageism are just a few. To celebrate this week, Furkids is showcasing some of our wonderful special needs pets just waiting to snuggle up to you in their new forever homes.
Furkids is PROUD to be one of the few shelters in Georgia to take in special needs dogs and cats on a regular basis. We were the first shelter to have a special place dedicated to FIV+ cats in Georgia - now other shelters are following in our footsteps. We take in animals that are blind, deaf, old, injured, abused, and/or have medical issues like diabetes, heart murmurs, paralysis, amputations, or broken bones.
