Injured by Gunshot, Sugar Pie Stays Sweet

Posted on Thursday, April 2nd

Injured by Gunshot, Sugar Pie Stays Sweet Although her soft powder blue eyes say a lot, Sugar Pie can’t tell us everything she has been through in her two short years of life. All we know is that she has been suffering outside too long; she is now safe with us; and she has a long road ahead of her. It takes a Village It all started last Saturday night when we came across a woman reaching out via social media, asking for help with a neighborhood cat that had a badly broken leg. She had no car or even a home of her own, so she did not… READ MORE >

Furkids Rescues Kittens with Swimmer’s Syndrome

Posted on Thursday, March 5th

Furkids Rescues Kittens with Swimmer’s Syndrome Recently, Furkids was called upon to help rescue dozens of cats and kittens from a filthy, run-down home. It was a truly sad situation for these helpless, fragile animals! We’ve discovered three of the kittens have Swimmer’s Syndrome, a congenital condition that can occur in young kittens, causing the legs (typically the hind limbs) to splay laterally. These kittens look like little frogs, with their hips and feet rotated out to the side, rather than underneath their bodies. The great news is that with time, proper therapy, and a lot of patience, Swimmer’s Syndrome can be corrected. We’ve dubbed this plucky trio the “Furkids Swim Team”, and we’re working 24x7 to bottle feed, clean and provide a strong… READ MORE >

Junie was Broken, but Now has a Home!

Posted on Thursday, February 27th

Junie was Broken, but Now has a Home! Tiny Kitten Junie was found abandoned, lying on the side of the road and shivering in the rain. It was clear that she had given up on trying to make it. Her rescuers picked her up and tried to see if she could stand, and she couldn’t. X-rays confirmed both of Junie’s hind legs were broken. One was so badly injured it had to be amputated, and veterinarians where concerned her remaining hind leg might have nerve damage so extensive it might never be functional. But through Junie’s unbreakable will and the care of our medical team, she made an amazing recovery. This… READ MORE >

Home is a Furever Commitment

Posted on Thursday, February 20th

Home is a Furever Commitment Celebrating Our 18th Anniversary of Commitment to Saving Lives Yesterday, we ran into a particularly heroic Furkids adopter, Christy T. In May of last year, Christy adopted the one cat that had been with Furkids longer than any other animal in our 18-year history. She adopted Confetti, who had come to Furkids in 2004, and been with us for over 14 years! Confetti came to Furkids when she was only two. Over the years, she was adopted and then returned several times due to some potty habits that are difficult for anyone to cope with. It broke our hearts to see her… READ MORE >
