Lemond – Missing Ear Kitty becomes a Furkid

Posted on Tuesday, March 24th

Four-year-old Lemond came to the attention of Furkids this past week. He was in animal control, covered with fleas and filth. He was breathing through his mouth, likely because of a severe respiratory infection.Lemond is also missing an ear; and has just one functional eye. Not a pretty kitty by most standards, and not a likely candidate for rescue. But, Furkids said, “Yes! We will take him!” The call for donations went out on Facebook, and brand-new Lemond fans stepped up to insure he would receive initial vetting, and an ER evaluation! He went straight to the hospital, and had his exam yesterday. Here is… READ MORE >

Springs means new life and growth. While beautiful flowers bloom and baby rabbits frolic, “new life” can also create a serious community issue—hundreds of unwanted, homeless puppies and kittens. And, the cycle of life continues. Being cute, young and sweet does not guarantee survival on the street or adoption from a county shelter.

We love being the recipient of collection drives. They are like mini birthday parties where we get to open the gifts for the animals and their caretakers, but this collection drive was unlike any we have seen before! Jordan, a junior at Parkview High School, collected items for four weeks. She produced flyers and distributed them to teachers, students, her church choir and her mother's colleagues.

The items have a thrift store… READ MORE >

2014 Grand Finale

Posted on Monday, March 2nd

Yes, those are HORNS you hear! We are BLOWING OUR OWN HORNS, loud and clear! 2014 was a BIG year for Furkids. We set a goal to rescue TWO THOUSAND HOMELESS PETS, and managed to take in 2,375! We found FOREVER HOMES for 2,069 animals, an adoption rate 35% higher than the year before. And we ended 2014 appropriately, with a FLURRY of FREEDOM RIDES and an AVALANCHE of ADOPTIONS. In December alone, 250 pets left Furkids for their own digs...almost DOUBLE our previous average numbers. Thanks to our new initiative, Operation: HOME!, donors can sponsor specific animals by paying… READ MORE >
