Furkids #petpARTners

Posted on Thursday, October 13th

At Furkids, we love it when our community gets involved, be it local businesses, organizations, service groups or schools. Hope Knight, an art teacher at Dolvin Elementary School, found a great way to get her students interested in helping Furkids animals through art! It is a community service project called “PetpARTners”, and the goal, according to Knight, “is to raise awareness of the homeless pet population in our community and bring in more adopting families and donations.” Knight’s students look at the adoptable pets on furkids.org and create beautiful portraits based on the profile photos of each pet. “We are… READ MORE >

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 >

Fabulous FeLV+ Furkids

Posted on Wednesday, August 10th

It’s no secret that Furkids is committed to saving as many animals as possible. We are a rescue that isn’t afraid to take on the hard cases… even the FeLV+ ones. Furkids has two FeLV+ suites, one at the cat shelter and one at the dog shelter, which house 17 cats total. FeLV+ cats can live long, happy lives, and Furkids provides them a warm, loving, safe environment to live out the rest of their lives, unless they happen to get adopted (which, unfortunately, doesn’t happen very often).  When a cat is FeLV+, it means that the cat has a… READ MORE >

The Senior Solution! Seniors Chloe and Freckles Go Home…

Posted on Saturday, January 16th

We Couldn’t Wait to Share! CHLOE And FRECKLES Go Home! All adoptions are celebrations, but some just plain rock our world. Chloe and Freckles came to Furkids as seniors who had lost their home, and they were strongly bonded. While they were happy enough as “Greeter Cats” at Furkids, their position was eliminated because of work happening at the shelter; so Chloe and Freckles were on the prowl for a home of their own. It’s not easy to home a bonded pair of kitties, much less a bonded pair of seniors. But one day, ace counselor Jeanni was serendipitiously - and… READ MORE >
