Happy Tails from the Lamar County Puppy Mill Dogs

Posted on Monday, April 8th

Happy Tails from the Lamar County Puppy Mill Dogs On March 14th, Furkids joined the Atlanta Humane Society in the rescue of 44 dogs from a puppy mill in Lamar County, GA. The dogs were living in horrid conditions, covered in their own urine and excrement in muddy outdoor pens. They did not have access to food or clean water. Furkids took in 10 of the dogs, while the others were rescued by Atlanta Humane Society and Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta. It took us several weeks to get these poor, neglected animals ready to be adopted. Many of them had horribly matted fur, ear and eye infections, badly… READ MORE >

A Touch of Fate

Posted on Tuesday, March 26th

A Touch of Fate Fate is defined as forces outside of your control that make things happen. It was fate that put Marco's picture on Craig's List for rehoming. Even though he is deaf. It was fate that caused a great Furkids volunteer to see the Craig's List posting.   It was fate that allowed that volunteer to rescue Marco from a very uncertain future and bring him into the Furkids family. Because he was deaf and about to be homeless. It was fate that on Marco's very first Caturday, Joe, who was visiting from New Jersey, stopped by the main cat shelter with some friends… READ MORE >

The Miraculous Recovery of Charles Xavier About a month ago, we came across a video from The Grey Project, an organization that helps feral cats in Cherokee County, along with this post: “Please - begging for help or for rescue!!

He is friendly.” Misunderstood and unloved, he was obviously dumped at this cat colony with no concern for him at all. He was simply thrown out like trash. He had no chance to survive outdoors on his own, and… READ MORE >

I Found a Home for the Holidays

Posted on Saturday, December 22nd

I Found a Home for the Holidays Happy Holidays everyone, 2018 was sure a whirlwind of a year! So sorry if I haven't been able to keep in touch, I've moved around a lot. Here's a quick update for those I've missed:  I started the year off at a local animal control. They kept me warm and fed, but I just wasn't getting the attention I needed. So, in January, I schmoozed my way into Furkids and found a nice lady to let me crash with her for a while. That was great, but I figured I needed to get out and meet more humans. I left my foster… READ MORE >
