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 >

The Rescues Continue, No Matter What As we navigate through the unpredictable world we now find ourselves in, we are seeing so many animals that have been abused and traumatized in ways that are visible – and some that are not. This new world has not been kind to helpless animals, and we are grateful that we have been able to help so many animals in the past several weeks. Please allow us to introduce you to some of them.

Shae Survives Gunshot to Her Head When Shae arrived at Furkids, we could immediately see her left eye had no vision, and was sunken and deformed. She was clearly in pain and scared, but she was as sweet as any cat could be. Her upper left canine tooth was crushed, and her jaws were infected and not aligned properly. Then, x-rays showed multiple projectile fragments from a shattered bullet!! Shae has multiple skull fractures; primarily from her nasal area to her jaw and roof of her mouth (upper hard palate), where there is a hole. And, all of it was infected. We removed the broken bone… READ MORE >

Cinderella Needs a Happily Ever After

Posted on Thursday, May 21st

Cinderella Needs a Happily Ever After A local 911 call center recently received a report that a young dog was found stuck in a manhole. They rushed to the scene to find Cinderella; cold, alone, very scared - and very stuck. Poor Ella was difficult to reach, but they were eventually able to pull her out with a pole. She had been thrown into the manhole by her owner. Naturally, Ella was traumatized. She also had mange and a fever, and she clearly needed help. It’s truly impossible to comprehend how someone could inflict such pain and sorrow on an innocent animal. But with your support… READ MORE >

Domestic Violence: Sheltering in place isn’t safe for everyone

Posted on Wednesday, May 20th

Domestic Violence: Sheltering in place isn’t safe for everyone As a result of the COVID-19 lockdown, some people have been trapped at home with abusive family members when they previously at least had the ability to seek refuge elsewhere. With more victims of domestic violence confined with abusers, hotlines have seen a spike in pleas for help. Domestic violence destroys families and hurts everyone, including pet family members. Sasha is one of those pets who came to us from a very traumatic past. She’s a sweet girl and is improving a little bit, day by day at Furkids. Sasha is still shy, and values her space, but she can't deny how… READ MORE >
