A TransFUR Coalition Success Story - Abbott & Costello’s Journey

Posted on Wednesday, August 22nd

A TransFUR Coalition Success Story - Abbott & Costello’s Journey On a hot morning in mid-July, brothers Abbott & Costello were surrendered to a rural animal shelter in Georgia.

At about the time Abbott & Costello were surrendered, Furkids was busy organizing another north-bound transport to save the lives of Georgia kitties by sending them to states where they are looking for more adoptable cats.

You’ll Never Guess How Long Boo Was Trying To Find His Way Home

Posted on Thursday, September 8th

Furkids CEO and Founder, Samantha Shelton, sometimes works from home… or should we say that her work tends to follow her home. One day, Sam was sitting at her desk when she saw something out of the corner of her eye at the window. It was a black tail belonging to some sort of animal. True to her form as a rescuer, Sam decided to check it out.  As she approached the window, she saw a black and white Tuxie kitty scoping out a critter. She had never seen this cat before and thought she would try to go outside… READ MORE >
