Georgia’s Largest Animal Rescue and No-Kill Shelters.

There is something about Noel

Posted by Furkids | Thursday, March 12th


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. That never happened, but fortunately her Good Samaritan had not forgotten her. He pulled her from Animal Control on Christmas Eve and asked Furkids to help find Noel a forever home. Noel is a nice medium size dog at about 45 lbs. She is housebroken and is at home on the sofa or the bed.

Noel is a social girl and loves to go! She is a great walking buddy and she loves car rides. Get her outside, and she'll play fetch and chase squirrels. Back indoors, Noel settles into couch potato mode (as you can see).

Noel3 Noel gets along with other dogs, especially those about her size. She may be a bit too much for small dogs. She's very mellow, quiet, friendly and confident. Noel has so much to offer as the trusty sidekick you always wanted! Her foster family thinks she is SO special that they made her a...


Meet Josephine, Queen of Dogtopia

Posted by Furkids | Tuesday, March 3rd

Meet Josephine. She is a gorgeous gray girl with long and luxurious fur soft as a bunny rabbit. She was rescued from Henry County animal control along with her babies who were very small at the time. All were placed together in a loving foster home where they were safe until they were ready for adoption. Since then, Josephine has completed her role as a mom and all of her babies have been adopted. Now it is her turn! 

Her foster mom could no longer care for her and at the time the cat shelter was very full, so Josephine took up residence at the dog shelter in the medical room. It was just supposed to be temporary, but months later Josephine is very content with her subjects (dogs and humans) and only plans to leave for the right home. (She told us so...) A home that will SPOIL HER ROTTEN! She has managed to become Queen of  Dogtopia and often roams the lobby greeting visitors and putting new dogs in their place. They pretty much abide to her every wish and desire, and she wouldn't...


Help these former "Starving Puppies" find their happy endings

Posted by Furkids | Monday, March 31st

UPDATE: Pat Benatar has been adopted, the other 5 are still waiting. starvingpuppiesstarving puppiesA few months ago, we were contacted about a litter of eight starving and emaciated pit mix puppies living outside in filth. We knew placing them would be a challenge, but we accepted the challenge anyway! See the video of their arrival at the dog shelter below.

A few of our wonderful foster homes took care of the eight puppies during multiple mite treatments and nursed them back to health. These dogs are extremely loving and loyal. Most have learned to walk on a leash and sit and are working on other manners. You can see John Denver is a REAL lap dog!

Now that they are healthy and ready for adoption, we need your help finding them the homes they deserve! Six of the eight puppies are still searching for their forever families and we fear they will grow up without families to spoil and love them during their puppyhood. Apply now to adopt one. E-mail or call 678-624-1009 with any questions.


Denny Dos Equis - The Most Interesting Dog in the World

Posted by Furkids | Wednesday, March 19th


November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month at Furkids! Denny's adoption fee is waived during November, so act fast and apply today! 

Animal control had taken Denny Dos Equis in for questioning just because they found him so interesting. From there Furkids jumped at the chance to take Denny into its program. We think Denny Dos Equis may be "The Most Interesting Dog in the World"! In fact, Denny Dos Equis is a whopping 8 lbs. of interesting!

His foster mom reports that when taking him for walks uphill and in the snow she carries him and then thanks him for the opportunity. When he has "accidents" indoors she apologizes to him.

He is outgoing and playful yet can turn suddenly fearful. His Achilles heel must be located near his neck because he becomes concerned if you reach for his collar.

We find Denny Dos Equis absolutely fascinating and are looking for an outstanding home with calm, interesting (!) individuals who can calm his fears and patiently finish up with his housebreaking.

Are you...


Jason needs a home, help him

Posted by Furkids | Monday, March 3rd

jasoncat2 Hi, my name is Jason and I was transferred to Furkids by another rescue group. They didn't have the reach and resources to care for a cat like me. I am very thankful they took such great care of me.

The other rescue helped me receive eye surgery to correct a rare eye issue. You see I have been diagnosed with Distichia, which is a disorder where the eyelashes grow inside the eyelid, causing irritation to the eyes. I am told this condition is very rare in cats, but more common in humans and some dog breeds. I have had two surgeries to help with my condition, but it is possible that I will need another surgery in the jasoncat3future since the lashes keep growing back. Luckily my adoption comes with a special deal! If I ever need corrective surgery for my eye issue again we have a vet willing to cover the expense of his surgery. So why NOT adopt me?

Enough about that, let's talk about something wonderful. That would be the new home that I am going to find with a very special human family. I want...
