Jacque’s Two-Pound Spa Treatment Would you like to lose almost 10% of your body weight in an hour? Poor Jacque came to Furkids from a sad situation, where his human passed away. When he arrived, Jacque weighed a whopping 24 lbs and was covered in the worst mats we’ve seen in our 18 years of lifesaving! Although it was the end of the day, our med team wouldn’t consider allowing him to suffer one more second and stayed into the evening to shave the horrible mess off his body - all 2 lbs of it!  Between his obesity, which limited his ability to self-groom,… READ MORE >

Samba’s Long Road

Posted on Tuesday, August 25th

A Good Samaritan came across Noel roaming in a desolate area with only an abandoned camper shell for shelter. Noel was taken to Animal Control with the hope that an owner would reclaim her.
