Be part of a game-changing new program

Posted on Wednesday, May 30th

What life saving change allowed a long-time homeless Furkids cat find a new home in minutes? Now, you can be part of a game-changing new program. Tessa, a beautiful kitty, has lived at Furkids for nearly 365 long days, watching adopters leave the shelter with other cats. Sadly, Tessa was always left behind, and our staff members watched this affectionate cat lose her spirit.  Until a bold new program matched Tessa with an unlikely adoptive family—almost immediately. Furkids and the Athens Area Humane Society joined forces to launch the Georgia Interstate TransFUR Coalition, an innovative state-to-state animal adoption program.  The… READ MORE >

Posted on Friday, March 30th

OUR TRANSPORT PROGRAM IS LIVE! Dear Friends, I am so excited to share with you today that our new Transport Program is up and running! Yesterday, we successfully delivered 60 cats to three shelters up north. We are now partnering with Animal Shelter, Inc. in Sterling, MA, Dakin Humane Society in Springfield, MA, and the Pennsylvania SPCA! These partnerships, and many more that are forming now, will allow us to save the lives of thousands more homeless cats and kittens from Georgia!  It is hard to believe that some of our northern counterparts are lacking cats to adopt to good homes.

The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma

Posted on Wednesday, September 13th

As we look into the sweet, sometimes-bedraggled faces of 120 rescued cats and dogs from coastal Georgia, we can’t stop crying tears of gratitude and saying thank you to our Irma heroes! What amazing acts of kindness and determination you showed.  The miracles happened by the truckload and planeload, here in Atlanta. Today, we have 120 animal souls saved from almost certain death. On the coast, their caregivers loved them enough to get them to rescue - even setting aside their own evacuation plans to help. In the air and on the ground, our volunteers and staff kept the evacuations coming.  In Atlanta, our… READ MORE >
