What Would You Do to Save a Kitten?

Posted on Thursday, July 2nd

What Would You Do to Save a Kitten? Last Thursday, we received a call from a volunteer who feeds a feral cat colony. A kitten had fallen 18 feet down into a storm drain, and had been there for DAYS! Local emergency services responded, but could not get down far enough to save the kitten, who was crying constantly, and in grave danger whenever it rained, as water flooded the storm drain.

Posted on Tuesday, February 18th

Nitro Takes a Deep Breath - Volume! We love to share the amazing transformations of the animals we rescue, but sometimes the difference between "before" and "after" rescue isn't something you can see. When little Nitro came to us, she had a terrible upper respiratory infection. Just listen to her struggle to breathe in this video - and then listen to how far she has come! Not only has Nitro been ill, but her siblings also are recovering from intestinal woes. They are all getting healthy, thanks to veterinary care and medications from the Furkids medical team in our new veterinary clinic in Cumming - and thanks to their foster… READ MORE >
