Chihuahua Puppies Dumped in Garbage

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, October 27th

Furkids recently took in two Chihuahua puppies after a Good Samaritan found them in a dumpster. They were so tiny and frail, and they seemed to be sick. When the puppies arrived to Furkids, the dog shelter medical team went straight to work to determine what was making them so ill. Our vets estimated that the puppies were about 4 weeks old, and determined that they had Parvovirus. These Chihuahua puppies who were thrown into the trash like garbage now had a new obstacle: to survive Parvo.  They were transferred out of the shelter and into a vet clinic so… READ MORE >

Advocate For Our Dogs

Posted by Furkids Admin | Tuesday, October 11th

October is ADOPT A SHELTER DOG MONTH! Furkids has already found 30 dogs homes this month, even for some "harder to place" dogs like Trooper. Trooper was found starving to death,  left in a crate in the middle of a busy road. Because of this traumatic experience, he had exhibited some behavior that turned potential adopters off, but what those people didn't know was that he was just acting out because he was terrified.  These "hard to place" dogs are animals that have been in our program for some time and have special circumstances that the average adopter may not… READ MORE >

Fabulous FeLV+ Furkids

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, August 10th

It’s no secret that Furkids is committed to saving as many animals as possible. We are a rescue that isn’t afraid to take on the hard cases… even the FeLV+ ones.

Lula: A Gentle Girl with a Brutal Past

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, July 28th

Lula is a sweet and gentle soul who is the poster-child for neglected animals everywhere. She was found in Dacula totally emaciated and with a terrible skin condition. Lula was days, if not hours, from death. A Furkids kennel tech brought her to the dog shelter and we immediately got to work to save her life.  Our vet told us that her nails had grown into her paw pads, but gentle Lula allowed her to cut them without even flinching. Her skin scrape came back negative for mange, but she will be starting medication to help her skin heal as… READ MORE >
