It’s Furkids 17th Anniversary!

Posted on Friday, February 22nd

Today is Furkids’ 17th Anniversary, and we have so many things to celebrate and be thankful for. We are especially grateful for you, our Furkids family!

Thank you for volunteering, even when it’s messy and challenging, because you know it’s worth it when a Furkid looks soulfully in your eyes with pure gratitude. Today, Furkids has about 1,000 dedicated volunteers.

Thank you for donating your hard-earned dollars, since you know you can trust Furkids to use every penny for saving the lives of innocent animals.

Thank you for donating your household items, furniture, appliances, clothes, jewelry and more to our Thrift Stores. We take those donations and save lives with every penny earned from sales!

Thank you for telling your friends and family about Furkids. Without your enthusiastic support, we simply wouldn’t be here.

Thank you for selflessly fostering homeless mamas and their babies; and for going without sleep for weeks while you bottle-feed orphaned babies every two hours, 24x7, for weeks at a time. You are true heros for so many kittens and pups. Today, there are approximately 200 foster parents in the Furkids network.

And thank you for your commitment to adopting. Adopted furbabies will always be Furkids in our hearts - all 30,000+ of them. Although it’s been 17 years, some of you - including our furkids themselves - have been part of our family from day one. Many are still with us to this day, like original Furkid Toby. Toby is a beautiful, sleek house panther who was adopted from Furkids in 2002 - our very first year. Toby’s adopter loved and cared for him for but sadly passed away many years ago. After his mom passed, Toby began a long journey of being passed to family members, who valiantly honored the lifelong commitment his original mom made. But after 17 years, Toby simply ran out of family to go to. That’s when the call came to Furkids and asked ‘can you help?’. Of course, we said, once a Furkid, always a Furkid! So now 18 year old Toby is back with Furkids, and we are working to find a loving foster home for him to spend his retirement years. Would you be interested? Toby is quite healthy for his age, and he is a loving and appreciative gentleman. Please consider offering him a place in your home and heart. To apply to foster, please go to Foster a Furkid.

When you touch Furkids in any way, you become part of our ever-expanding furever family of people and animals. We are so grateful for you! Please come help us celebrate our 17th year at our Anniversary Party on March 23 at Mason Fine Art. Anniversary Party information and tickets

If you can’t make it to the party, we still need your help. Please donate $17 in honor of our 17th anniversary! Thank you all and happy birthday Furkids!
