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 >

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. Since they were surrendered by their owner, this put Abbott & Costello at the top of the euthanasia list in a crowded shelter. No longer wanted, their prospects were bleak and their luck had run out. 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. Furkids contacted a rescue group in Savannah to tell… READ MORE >

Posted on Friday, July 13th

What life-saving change allowed a long-time Furkid to find a new home in minutes? Now you can be a part of a game-changing new program!

Furkids and the Athens Area Humane Society joined forces to launch the Georgia Interstate TransFUR Coalition, an innovative state-to-state animal adoption program. The purpose is to give homeless Georgia pets a better chance at adoption by sending them… READ MORE >
