Celebrating National Vet Tech Week

Posted on Monday, October 19th

Vet Techs and Vet Assistants are the beating heart of any animal shelter. Renee Cardona, Animal Care Manager at Furkids, is an amazing example of a heart that keeps on giving.  A (human) nurse, Renee began her journey with Furkids in 2005 as a volunteer, cleaning rooms 123, 4, and 6 (the FIV room at that time) each Monday and Thursday. That same year, Renee and her family (husband Fred, daughters Kayla, 10, and Hannah, 5) adopted their first Furkid, a black and white tux named Pepe Le Pew (now Mon). More tuxes (a Renee favorite) have joined the family,… READ MORE >

Ollie’s Story - Our Senior Cats Have Tales to Tell, and So Much Love to Give!

Posted on Thursday, October 15th

Precious senior Ollie has been through way too much. He came to Furkids years ago, after being rescued from some children who poured scalding water over him. Ollie healed well, but the abuse resulted in some hair loss. This sweet guy has bald patches. Ollie was adopted soon after he healed, and had many good years with his loving mama, until earlier this year; when she was in a horrible car accident. Sadly, Ollie's mom succumbed to her injuries. Ollie came back to Furkids, along with his housemate, Willow. She was soon adopted, and Ollie settled in to the shelter… READ MORE >
