Georgia Gives Day is coming up on November 17, 2016, and we are so excited to participate.
GGD is a 24-hour, statewide giving event that has raised more than $9 million for Georgia nonprofits in the first three years. This year, it just happens to fall on the same day as our Paws for Cocktails celebration, and is going to be an extra special party you don't want to miss, so get your tickets HERE!
Furkids wants to make history and raise $100,000 for animals in need, and you can help us! Join the hundreds of Georgians who will be donating to Furkids at www.gagivesday.org/c/GGD/a/furkids!
We’re creating a Matching Gift Fund so that your contributions will help even more animals! See the benefits of becoming a Georgia Gives Day Sponsor below:

Do you recognize this beautiful black and white boy in Renee Cardona’s arms? It’s Jesse, a former Furkid, now living with his forever family. In this picture he is receiving his award for being the best cat in the household pet class at the Cotton States Cat Show. Jesse is one of many Furkids who have had brief but fulfilling careers as show cats with CFA and TICA, organizations who celebrate both domestic household pets and purebred cats.
