Furkids #petpARTners

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, October 13th

At Furkids, we love it when our community gets involved, be it local businesses, organizations, service groups or schools. Hope Knight, an art teacher at Dolvin Elementary School, found a great way to get her students interested in helping Furkids animals through art! It is a community service project called “PetpARTners”, and the goal, according to Knight, “is to raise awareness of the homeless pet population in our community and bring in more adopting families and donations.” Knight’s students look at the adoptable pets on furkids.org and create beautiful portraits based on the profile photos of each pet. “We are… READ MORE >

Target Team Members give back

Posted by Furkids Admin | Wednesday, August 5th

Furkids proudly hosts volunteer groups from churches to Girl Scout troops year-round at our shelters, but we are especially excited when a corporation takes time out of their busy work week to come volunteer with our animals. Target employees and interns from all around the Atlanta area traveled for a day of service at our dog shelter.  Thirty of their finest loaded into the shelter to bathe dogs, wipe windows, walk dogs and even do some deep and dirty cleaning. The shelter smelled extra clean and fresh when they left and the dogs were exhausted! It was a huge success and… READ MORE >

High School Students Share Kindness

Posted by Admin | Wednesday, April 8th

In 2014 Anna Mahr, senior class president at Milton High School, organized a Kindness Week to encourage kindness and school spirit in a school environment reeling from several tragic deaths. The community undoubtedly felt the need for such an event and Kindness Week delivered! The week was a huge success and in 2015 the school decided to hold Kindness Week again, this year with additional opportunities including a visit from Furkids dogs, dance parties, teacher appreciation events and letter writing to the troops. Five adoptable dogs visited Milton High School on March 31 to play with students and encourage mental health and… READ MORE >

Changing Lives One Cat at a Time

Posted by Admin | Wednesday, April 24th

The small black cat crouched in fear at the back of the intake cage, hissing and growling, swiping at any hand that came close. Her ears were pinned back and her eyes were wide as she puffed herself up to seem larger and more fearsome. What adopter could possibly want to take her home? Jump ahead just seven weeks: the same cat rests calmly in her bed watching people bustling about. She sniffs at hands that are extended to her and lifts her head to receive petting. She rolls over and fearlessly exposes her belly. She gently nibbles a treat… READ MORE >
