Breaking News:  Furkids Takes on Scammers!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, June 7th

Strap on that helmet, and pull your seat belt tight, y'all...we're about to take you on a wild ride! A couple of weeks ago, we were alerted to an organization called atlanticbreeders.com by a reader. Their street address is identical to ours, except it doesn't have a suite number. The poster wondered if this was a scam; and we wondered if our landlord had rented space to a dog breeder. We did a little investigating. More questions came in over the next few days - we were puzzled, and distressed that anyone would think Furkids had an an affiliation with a breeder.… READ MORE >

Accentuate the PAWSitive - FIV is No Big Deal!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, May 11th

On April 22nd, we hosted our very first "Accentuate the PAWSitive" PAWty to spotlight our fabulous felines who happen to test positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Long misunderstood, these beautiful, friendly, and highly-adoptable cats are sometimes viewed as a threat to non-FIV kitties, although the virus is transmitted only through deep bite wounds (the type delivered by un-altered territorial toms), and from mom to baby. They have even been euthanized, because they were deemed "sick". FIV cats do have an elevated risk for very treatable conditions like upper respiratory infections, but these are easily detected and resolved. The fact… READ MORE >

THANK YOU from Furkids!

January 6, 2017 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… READ MORE >

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.
