Furkids Rescues Kittens with Swimmer’s Syndrome

Posted on Thursday, March 5th

Furkids Rescues Kittens with Swimmer’s Syndrome Recently, Furkids was called upon to help rescue dozens of cats and kittens from a filthy, run-down home. It was a truly sad situation for these helpless, fragile animals! We’ve discovered three of the kittens have Swimmer’s Syndrome, a congenital condition that can occur in young kittens, causing the legs (typically the hind limbs) to splay laterally. These kittens look like little frogs, with their hips and feet rotated out to the side, rather than underneath their bodies. The great news is that with time, proper therapy, and a lot of patience, Swimmer’s Syndrome can be corrected. We’ve dubbed this plucky trio the “Furkids Swim Team”, and we’re working 24x7 to bottle feed, clean and provide a strong… READ MORE >

Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance

Posted on Friday, August 9th

Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance Updated! Brittney Adopted! Little Brittney was found as a tiny 4-5 week old kitten, alone in a storm drain in Mcdonough. She had a very severe infected wound on her right paw, which would soon become septic without treatment. Brittney had most likely been dumped, and with the challenges of being a young kitten and the difficulty getting around, her prospects for survival were not good at all. Fortunately the kind woman who found her decided to get her to Furkids. The wound initially healed, but then began to cause little Brittany severe pain. Every effort was made to prevent amputation,… READ MORE >

Is a Study Buddy on Your Back-to-School List?

Posted on Monday, July 29th

Is a Study Buddy on Your Back-to-School List? School is almost here!! Back-to-School time can often trigger worries that our kids might not buckle down and do their schoolwork. After a summer of fun, sitting down to seriously hit the books may not be that high on their list, right? Finding a way to positively and effectively reinforce studying is a challenge, as all parents know. At Furkids, we know that kids respond enthusiastically and look forward to reading with cats as part of our FurTales program. Of course, parents love it to. We have learned that having a cat or dog nearby can help distracted kids slow down and focus on reading and schoolwork.… 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 >
