Have a Heart for Healthy Hearts

Posted on Wednesday, September 9th

Have a Heart for Healthy Hearts So many of the dogs and puppies we rescue have a variety of illnesses, but one deadly illness we see most often is heartworm disease. At times, as many as 50% of the dogs at Furkids are in heartworm treatment – an expensive process that lasts 90 days, from pre meds to injections, and costs roughly $400 when we factor in medications, blood tests, veterinarian and medical staff time, and care for the longer period of time they are with us. We work to mitigate these costs by shortening length of stay when we can by allowing local adoptions. We… READ MORE >

Samba’s Long Road

Posted on Tuesday, August 25th

Samba’s Long Road Samba was just a puppy and had been abandoned - failed at every level by the people who were supposed to be there for him. When we met him, we knew he had many health issues – from a skin issue to joints that weren't functioning correctly – but we saw his soul in his sad eyes. We felt his desire to live, and we knew we had to help him. Once we got Samba in a Furkids foster home, he did so well! But in a few days, he took a turn for the worse and had to spend several days at the emergency vet.… READ MORE >
