Posted on Thursday, December 14th

Dear Friends,  As 2017 draws to a close, I’m so happy that Furkids is saving more lives, growing in strength and earning worldwide recognition!  Animal behaviorist and celebrity Jackson Galaxy, known as The Cat Daddy, honored us by being the guest of honor at our 15th birthday gala.  Jackson tours rescue organizations all over the country, and he gave Furkids highest marks during his visit to our cat shelter.  Jackson and Furkids had a blast honoring Paul Preston, producer and star of the now-world famous Kitty Kommercial.

The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma

Posted on Wednesday, September 13th

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 >

It’s Now or Never for Hurricane Irma Animals

Posted on Thursday, September 7th

Friends, we need your help! Animal control operations in the danger zone have been flooded with cats and dogs whose owners had to escape ahead of Hurricane Irma. Furkids already has taken in more than 20 dogs abandoned in south Georgia. Tomorrow, we open our doors to about 50 cats and dogs from shelters in Effingham and Long Counties. People can run, but there’s little chance for helpless animals to escape. They’re terrified and in terrible danger!  Last Fall, Furkids rescued 100+ animals from Hurricane Matthew, and we want to help again.  HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW Adopt a Furkid this weekend, September… READ MORE >

Spike has Spirit!

Posted on Thursday, June 30th

Hi, I’m Spike. I only just arrived to Furkids earlier this week. Furkids got a call came to rescue me and my two fur-siblings. They found me outside in the garbage-filled backyard where we lived. The Furkids vets said I am sick and have Parvovirus, but my humans never took me to the vet to get a check-up, so how was I supposed to know? I also was suffering from Heat Stroke from being left out in the summer sun with nowhere to go. I’m a Poodle with black hair, so I get hot pretty easily. Furkids got to me… READ MORE >
