National Mutt Day

Posted on Thursday, July 28th

August is just around the corner, but the last day of July is what it’s all about! National Mutt Day is coming up and we want to celebrate all the mutts in our shelter and in the world! National Mutt Day was founded 11 years ago by Colleen Paige. Paige wanted to shed some light on mixed-breed dogs who are often overlooked. There is such a high demand for “designer breeds” that many unwanted mutts go into shelters and never come out. Always adopt. There are so many dogs in shelters waiting for forever homes. Furkids loves all dogs, designers… READ MORE >

Lula: A Gentle Girl with a Brutal Past

Posted on Thursday, July 28th

Lula is a sweet and gentle soul who is the poster-child for neglected animals everywhere. She was found in Dacula totally emaciated and with a terrible skin condition. Lula was days, if not hours, from death. A Furkids kennel tech brought her to the dog shelter and we immediately got to work to save her life.  Our vet told us that her nails had grown into her paw pads, but gentle Lula allowed her to cut them without even flinching. Her skin scrape came back negative for mange, but she will be starting medication to help her skin heal as… READ MORE >

Strudel Lost Her Best Friend, But We Are Going to Save Her Life! The call came yesterday, from animal control. They had two lethargic cats who had suffered some sort of blunt-force trauma; along with maggot infestations, wounds, swelling, and infections. They were gravely ill. Could we help? Sadly, before we could rescue them, Beatrice lost her battle. Strudel is still fighting; and we have volunteers on the way to transport her from animal control to emergency. We have no idea as to the extent of her injuries. She will need comprehensive evaluations, and certainly antibiotic therapy; with possible surgical… READ MORE >

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

*********SWEET CLADY – SHE’S A VERY SICK LADY********* We’re Trying HARD to Save Her, But She Needs YOUR Help, Too! CLADY, a SWEET, little SHIH TZU, was DUMPED by her “owners” at a HIGH-KILL rural shelter, because she was “unable to train”. We thought she had suffered horrific BURNS, and no telling what else, because her SKIN was so INFLAMED. It was actually too HOT to barely touch. Initial exams identified skin infections, a total of FIVE DIFFERENT ORGANISMS, doing battle on the surface of her poor little body. Pictured left is the day we took her into the program (6… READ MORE >
