HELP US MEET OUR MATCH!

Posted on Thursday, July 28th

Last week, we sent an email addressing the urgent need to raise money for our Emergency Rescue Fund. We want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far! With your incredible contributions, we have raised $10,000! What's even more amazing is that a generous donor saw the $8,000 match being offered and is giving $7,000 to make it a $15,000 total match! We're only $5,000 away from the match goal! If you have not already, please consider making a donation to the Furkids Emergency Rescue Fund. Furkids will make your donated dollars go farther!

Valentine and her growing needs

Posted on Monday, June 15th

Little Valentine could not even lift her hind end when she arrived at Furkids as an 8 week old puppy. She scooted around on her front paws, dragging her rear. Facebook followers may recall her first set of wheels constructed by a Furkids volunteer in the garage. That got Valentine up and rolling. Then we saw what needed tweaking and eventually Valentine graduated to the Walkin' Wheels® she now uses. Not only does this wheelchair allow Valentine greater mobility and use of her four legs, but it also helped to strengthen her muscles and now Valentine is able to stand… READ MORE >

Clady is a very sick little lady trying to stay strong

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

*********SWEET CLADY – SHE’S A VERY SICK LADY********* We’re Trying HARD to Save Her, But She Needs YOUR Help, Too! CLADY, a SWEET, little SHIH TZU, was DUMPED by her “owners” at a HIGH-KILL rural shelter, because she was “unable to train”. We thought she had suffered horrific BURNS, and no telling what else, because her SKIN was so INFLAMED. It was actually too HOT to barely touch. Initial exams identified skin infections, a total of FIVE DIFFERENT ORGANISMS, doing battle on the surface of her poor little body. Pictured left is the day we took her into the program (6… READ MORE >

Lemond the Missing Ear Kitty *UPDATE*

Posted on Wednesday, April 8th

We introduced you to Lemond in our last newsletter. One of the most pitiful cats we’ve seen, Lemond came to us from animal control with a horrible skin infection, ear mite infestation, just one ear and only one viable eye. He was also covered in some sort of unidentified grease. Not a pretty boy, by any stretch; and not a cat that most rescues would promote, or even consent to take. But, Furkids – as you would expect – said, “YES! We will help him!” Thanks to an army of generous donors, we were able to get Lemond the surgery… READ MORE >

Lemond – Missing Ear Kitty becomes a Furkid

Posted on Tuesday, March 24th

Four-year-old Lemond came to the attention of Furkids this past week. He was in animal control, covered with fleas and filth. He was breathing through his mouth, likely because of a severe respiratory infection.Lemond is also missing an ear; and has just one functional eye. Not a pretty kitty by most standards, and not a likely candidate for rescue. But, Furkids said, “Yes! We will take him!” The call for donations went out on Facebook, and brand-new Lemond fans stepped up to insure he would receive initial vetting, and an ER evaluation! He went straight to the hospital, and had his exam yesterday. Here is… READ MORE >
