Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance

Posted on Friday, August 9th

Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance Little Brittney was found as a tiny 4-5 week old kitten, alone in a storm drain in Mcdonough. She had a very severe infected wound on her right paw, which would soon become septic without treatment. Brittney had most likely been dumped, and with the challenges of being a young kitten and the difficulty getting around, her prospects for survival were not good at all. Fortunately the kind woman who found her decided to get her to Furkids. The wound initially healed, but then began to cause little Brittany severe pain. Every effort was made to prevent amputation, but in the… READ MORE >

Leaning Lenny is Bulletproof!

Posted on Monday, June 3rd

Leaning Lenny is Bulletproof! Just like Superman, our boy Leaning Lenny seems to be bulletproof! We first heard of Lenny through an urgent email from Animal Control. They had a 9-year-old, heartworm positive miniature pinscher in pain with a badly injured leg, and no money or space to care for him. If he didn’t find a rescue that day, he would be euthanized in the morning. We didn’t know what had happened to him, but we knew we had to help! We stepped up to save him and named him Leaning Lenny. He quickly visited our vet for X-rays. Turns out, Lenny had been… READ MORE >

Fostering saves lives, just like Bucky’s

Posted on Thursday, May 23rd

Fostering saves lives, just like Bucky’s Little Bucky was found in the street in Buckhead (hence the name!). He was fortunate enough to make it to Furkids, where he was welcomed with some poking and prodding (and a pet or two) from our med team. Finally, Bucky got his own little room to play and relax in. His long and tiring journey has turned out wonderfully, and now he's got many more days to look forward to! Right now, there are dozens of baby kittens just like Bucky at Furkids waiting for a foster home. With more fosters, we can save more lives just like Bucky.… READ MORE >

Confetti Finally Goes Home

Posted on Sunday, May 19th

Confetti Finally Goes Home 5,291 days. That’s 14 ½ years. Until April 30th, Confetti was the kitty who had been with Furkids the longest. Confetti was born in November of 2002 – the same year Furkids was founded, and came to Furkids in November 2004 from the Atlanta Humane Society, which means she may have spent her entire life in shelters. Confetti was adopted and returned several times over the years. Usually she was returned because of inconsistent litter box use. The last time she was adopted was in 2015. Whenever Confetti came back to Furkids, she settled right back in just like she… READ MORE >

Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd

Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking When Jethro came to us as a hurricane refugee, he was a truly sad kitty. He struggled to feel at home in the shelter, and although it was comfy and he got to participate in our Purrkids program (for shy, depressed or less social kitties who need extra attention), he still seemed so sad. Worse, he gained weight. LOTS of weight; to the point where he had difficulty moving around. We knew focused attention, a weight-loss supervisor and a real, loving home was what he needed. It took awhile, but we finally found Jethro's human hero in our Fabulous Foster, Linda H.… READ MORE >
