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 >

It happens every year, but with this year’s early spring the onslaught is much, much more severe! We don’t have time to ponder why. We just have to act, and act now. Every single call represents five, and sometimes even eight innocent lives in urgent need of help. In the last… READ MORE >

Exquisite Eve’s Urgent Rescue

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd

Exquisite Eve’s Urgent Rescue In pain with a shattered pelvis and labeled URGENT, Eve was forced to languish in a crowded animal shelter in rural Georgia. In desperate need of medical care, Eve clearly needed surgery as well as a long recovery period – something animal control facilities are not able to do and sadly forces them to euthanize sweet, loving dogs and cats like Eve. With time quickly running out, Eve had to get out of animal control and out of pain. Thankfully, Furkids was alerted to her plight and we rescued her from the shelter and immediately got her to the vet.… READ MORE >
