Dear Furkids Friends,

Happy 2017 to all of you! 

A few weeks ago, some Furkids family members got together to find an innovative way to help our organization increase adoptions and gain additional support.  The product of this team’s creative efforts is the clever, wildly appealing and funny Kitty Kommercial featuring some of our animals, staff and volunteers. We loved the video (who wouldn’t?) and posted it to our Facebook page on December 24. This past Tuesday, someone shared the clip on Reddit, and almost immediately, the clip went viral.  We had no idea how broadly our message had spread until Wednesday morning, when we woke up to a flood of emails, calls and social media postings unlike anything we had ever experienced in our 15-year history. 

Without a doubt, the attention is far beyond anything our organization could realistically wish for. Furkids has received praise and well wishes from over 9,000 people globally, and the momentum continues to build...

Furkids Kitty Kommercial goes viral

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, January 4th

It's pretty awesome when we can make life better for animals and people! Our latest video, Kitty Kommercial, has received some great feedback after making it to the front page of Reddit

The video was originally posted to Youtube and our Facebook page, and has over 35,000 (and counting) views collectively.  It features Furkids volunteer, Paul Preston, using traditional, yet cheesy salesman tactics to find "furever" homes for the Furkids shelter animals.

The story of our viral video was even picked up by The Huffington Post, the AJC,  Mother Nature Network and digital media news and entertainment sites, BuzzFeed and UPROXX! We're excited about this, because this kind of publicity tends to lead to more adoptions, volunteers and donations, which means we can save more animals in need! 

Thank you to all who shared this video!

UPDATE: Kittens with Entropion Ready for Adoption!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, December 22nd

Back in September, we rescued three kittens with Entropion who all needed surgery to correct the issue. Entropion is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward. This can cause an eyelash or hair to irritate and scratch the surface of the eye, leading to corneal ulceration or perforation (PetMD).
 
We asked for donations to help cover the cost of the surgeries, and many generous supporters answered the call! Blairsville, Blue Ridge and Hiawassee received their corrective surgeries and are doing very well. So well, in fact, that all three are looking for their forever homes!
 
PLEASE HELP THEM ONCE MORE BY SHARING THIS ON FACEBOOK! Below are their BEFORE & AFTER photos.

Hurricane Matthew Victims Update

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, October 27th

- UDPATE - 

Two weeks ago, Furkids took in 63 Hurricane Matthew victims who had been affected by severe flooding in the Carolinas. We asked for contributions to help with the care of these helpless animals who had lost everything, and our fans stepped up. Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to provide for all the Hurricane Matthew dogs and cats who came into our shelters. Many of the animals were placed into safe, warm, loving foster homes and are settling in well and recovering.

Again, we want to thank all our supporters, volunteers, fosters and staff who contributed toward this astonishing rescue. We are so thankful for each and every one of you. If you would like to make a donation toward the animals still in the program, please visit furkids.org/donation.

The Hurricane Matthew animals will be available for adoption soon. Follow us on Facebook for updates!
