A Message from our Kitties

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, September 24th

We love our cozy cubbies, but we have been hard on them. We need them remade with the proper materials to withstand our use. Will you buy us new cubbies? They are $50 each and we need at least 32!!!

Buy one now!

Thank you to those who have donated a cubbie, or two!

Featured Furkid - Sweet Pea

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, September 24th

Est. date of birth: 07/17/10

Hello wonderful humans. My name is Sweet Pea, and when you meet me you will find this to be the purr-fect name for me. I crave human attention, including being petted, talked to, and held. I'm the kind of girl who walks right over to you and asks for your time. I have a very unique look. My eyes are big and bright green, ready to mesmerize you. I am a cute tuxedo gal with white feet, chin, and neck. And my other identifying feature is a shorter than normal tail. All I want in this life is to find my perfect match in a person or family. I will give you all of my love, which consists of nose kisses and purrs. I just want to be close to you. Please consider giving me the home that I've been longing for and I will be a great addition to your world.

I was rescued my a nice gentlemen after he found kids throwing me down the stairs at an apartment building! That very nice man sadly lost his job and his apartment, but he kept me! We went from hotel to hotel and...


Featured Furkid - Sassafras

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, September 24th

My name is Sassafras and I'm 14 lbs of soft, fluffy sweetness.  With my soft red fur and slightly bushy tail, my foster parents have nicknamed me "Little Fox".  I'm not sure how I ended up wandering around an office complex, but am so thankful I was rescued by Furkids and have a foster mom to follow everywhere she goes. 

I love to get scratched and might nudge my nose under your hand when you aren't paying attention.  I love people and am fine with other dogs - though I prefer occasional play with my foster mom more than playing with other pups.  I get a little stressed in crates, but my foster parents leave me uncrated when they aren't home and I don't mess anything up. I LOVE to go for walks! When I hear the leashes jingle, I perk up and

twirl and jump in excitement.  My foster mom says I'm a perfect angel and deserve the best forever-home Furkids can find!
