Happy Tales of Adoption!

Posted on Thursday, June 16th

Helen At Furkids, we love when our animals find their happy endings, especially when those animals are special needs cases. Two of our most phenomenal felines one of our delightful dogs found their forever homes in May and we couldn’t be more excited for them. Helen, a shy, black and white cat, was left on Furkids’ doorstep last year with a badly mangled leg. She struggled to get in and out of the litter box, and was frightened at the sight of another cat.

We knew that, if there really were babies up there, they would… READ MORE >

TOGETHER FOREVER… Mittens and Girl are two lucky gals.

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

Some call it foster failure, we call it forever fostering. The Reynolds family has been wonderful! Volunteering their time and home to our animals for the past year. First they brought home Mittens (left) when we sent out a plea. She was part of a large intake we did from a person with too many animals. She was shy and scared and the Reynolds helped her. They actually fell in love with her and adopted her, but the story gets better! A few months later her sister named Girl (right) was still in need of a foster home, so they… READ MORE >
