Scout Has Her Best Day Ever!

Posted on Thursday, October 8th

Scout Has Her Best Day Ever! Scout just had the best day of her life! Recently, she got to go on a Pooch Pontoon ride with Best Friends on the Lake. That would be a great day for even the most spoiled dog, but it certainly meant EVERYTHING to a pup who has lived in a shelter for her entire life. First, Scout got a pontoon ride to a private island in Lake Lanier, where she got to run off-leash. She also got all the trees, branches, and sticks she could ever ask for. Scout is one stick-loving dog – BIG sticks!! Scout also discovered she really… READ MORE >

Jacque’s Two-Pound Spa Treatment Would you like to lose almost 10% of your body weight in an hour? Poor Jacque came to Furkids from a sad situation, where his human passed away.

Samba’s Long Road

Posted on Tuesday, August 25th

Samba’s Long Road Samba was just a puppy and had been abandoned - failed at every level by the people who were supposed to be there for him. When we met him, we knew he had many health issues – from a skin issue to joints that weren't functioning correctly – but we saw his soul in his sad eyes.

What Would You Do to Save a Kitten?

Posted on Thursday, July 2nd

What Would You Do to Save a Kitten? Last Thursday, we received a call from a volunteer who feeds a feral cat colony. A kitten had fallen 18 feet down into a storm drain, and had been there for DAYS! Local emergency services responded, but could not get down far enough to save the kitten, who was crying constantly, and in grave danger whenever it rained, as water flooded the storm drain. Somehow, she managed to stay on a small ledge. Can you imagine?? Her will to survive is amazing! Thankfully, our volunteer and her family managed to lower food and water down to the kitten regularly, but it… READ MORE >
