Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance

Posted on Friday, August 9th

Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance Updated! Brittney Adopted! Little Brittney was found as a tiny 4-5 week old kitten, alone in a storm drain in Mcdonough. She had a very severe infected wound on her right paw, which would soon become septic without treatment. Brittney had most likely been dumped, and with the challenges of being a young kitten and the difficulty getting around, her prospects for survival were not good at all. Fortunately the kind woman who found her decided to get her to Furkids. The wound initially healed, but then began to cause little Brittany severe pain.

Confetti Finally Goes Home 5,291 days. That’s 14 ½ years. Until April 30th, Confetti was the kitty who had been with Furkids the longest. Confetti was born in November of 2002 – the same year Furkids was founded, and came to Furkids in November 2004 from the Atlanta Humane Society, which means she may have spent her entire life in shelters. Confetti was adopted and returned several times over the years. Usually she was returned because of inconsistent litter box use. The last time she was adopted was in 2015. Whenever Confetti came back to Furkids, she settled right back in just like she… READ MORE >

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 >
