Advocate For Our Dogs

Posted on Tuesday, October 11th

October is ADOPT A SHELTER DOG MONTH! Furkids has already found 30 dogs homes this month, even for some "harder to place" dogs like Trooper. Trooper was found starving to death,  left in a crate in the middle of a busy road. Because of this traumatic experience, he had exhibited some behavior that turned potential adopters off, but what those people didn't know was that he was just acting out because he was terrified.  These "hard to place" dogs are animals that have been in our program for some time and have special circumstances that the average adopter may not… 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 >

Young and Beautiful CALYPSO Is Interviewing Forever Families, In January, her Adoption Fee is ZERO! Meet Her At Our Cat Shelter! Calypso is a VERY special girl, for many reasons. She has one blue eye, and one gold; giving her a unique and exotic look. She is DECLAWED.

Calypso had been in foster care for a while, and her foster fam reports that she was a delight. Now, however, she… READ MORE >

Valentine and her growing needs

Posted on Monday, June 15th

Little Valentine could not even lift her hind end when she arrived at Furkids as an 8 week old puppy. She scooted around on her front paws, dragging her rear. Facebook followers may recall her first set of wheels constructed by a Furkids volunteer in the garage. That got Valentine up and rolling. Then we saw what needed tweaking and eventually Valentine graduated to the Walkin' Wheels® she now uses. Not only does this wheelchair allow Valentine greater mobility and use of her four legs, but it also helped to strengthen her muscles and now Valentine is able to stand… READ MORE >

Meet Arial the Blind and Deaf Puppy

Posted on Monday, June 15th

Furkids rescued Arial from a high kill animal facility where she was likely dumped by someone who was unable to sell her for profit. Despite what must have been a harrowing experience for Arial, she is a truly remarkable puppy. That's because Arial is blind and deaf, disabilities that do not keep her from living a very social and active life. Arial is also becoming quite proficient in using her sense of smell to find what she wants - she found her basket full of dog toys quickly and also quickly learned where to find her food and water. Every… READ MORE >
