A Year of Hope

Posted on Tuesday, April 27th

A Year of Hope As we wrap up our 19th Anniversary and this year’s theme of HOPE, we want to take a moment and share some heartwarming examples of Furkids in action regarding the animal ~and human~ lives we’ve changed in the last year. Furkids is fiercely determined to change the course of animals’ lives who are abused, homeless, neglected and sick, and to bring hope to what were once hopeless lives as well. Together, we've accomplished so much in the last year. I am so proud that we are dramatically meeting our mission of increasingly saving more animal lives year after year! Let's… READ MORE >

A Harrowing Look: Horrors of Dog Hoarding

Posted on Tuesday, February 9th

A Harrowing Look: Horrors of Dog Hoarding Dozens of dogs saved from extreme neglect need immediate help Last week we received a critical call to rescue 60 dogs in one of the most horrific animal neglect cases in Furkids’ 19-year history.  Left to suffer unthinkable conditions, the hoarded dogs were starved and their health neglected, many with visible ailments and coats matted beyond breed recognition. As if their deplorable living conditions weren’t enough, the innocent pups were all emotionally battered to the core. We are heartbroken to report that sweet Grace (pictured here with Dr. Orlin) did not survive the pain and suffering and crossed the rainbow… READ MORE >

Fostering Saves Lives

Posted on Thursday, December 31st

Fostering Saves Lives In early March, our family received an urgent call from the Furkids Foster Home Coordinator. A litter of five kittens had just arrived and two were deathly ill. As a veterinary technician, my skill set was prepared to take them on--and as a mom, I knew my maternal instincts would somehow play a role in keeping these babies alive.  At just three weeks old, all five kits were suffering upper respiratory infections. Two of them, Captain and Blindbeard, were also presenting much more complicated symptoms than their siblings. They were lethargic, weak, and had severe eye ulcerations. Our days and nights were filled… READ MORE >

Furkids TransFUR Program Expands

Posted on Tuesday, December 29th

Furkids TransFUR Program Expands Giving the gift of life never stops at Furkids.  In 2020, our domestic TransFUR program expanded to the islands of Puerto Rico & St. Croix, bringing more than 170 homeless and abandoned dogs stateside. The islands have been struck with earthquakes, economic hardships and pure devastation during 2020. And in turn, pet abandonment is at an all-time high. With limited shelter resources, the islands are overpopulated with “street dogs” trying to escape the inevitable—death! At Furkids, saving the lives of animals is our core mission—no matter how near or far! Without your support, all of these deserving dogs would have been euthanized and/or… READ MORE >

A Holiday Message From Our Founder

Posted on Tuesday, December 15th

A Holiday Message From Our Founder As I look back on 2020, it’s so tempting to focus on how COVID-19 impacted all of us. While schools shut down and businesses were vulnerable, one thing remained constant—our shared commitment for helping homeless animals in need. Throughout these months, I’ve found it helpful to focus on what we do have and the deep passion that bonds our Furkids community. Thanks to our dedicated employees and volunteers, we kept our shelters open during the pandemic while many other rescue organizations shut down. Desperate animals needed us more than ever as cruelty and abandonment cases increased. On the flip side,… READ MORE >
