It’s Now or Never for Hurricane Irma Animals

Posted on Thursday, September 7th

Friends, we need your help! Animal control operations in the danger zone have been flooded with cats and dogs whose owners had to escape ahead of Hurricane Irma. Furkids already has taken in more than 20 dogs abandoned in south Georgia. Tomorrow, we open our doors to about 50 cats and dogs from shelters in Effingham and Long Counties. People can run, but there's little chance for helpless animals to escape. They're terrified and in terrible danger!  Last Fall, Furkids rescued 100+ animals from Hurricane Matthew, and we want to help again. 


Adopt a Furkid this weekend, September 9 and 10, during PetCo's National Adoption Weekend. When you adopt, you make room for Irma's furry refugees and Furkids gets credit from PETCO to help more animals. Find us this weekend at PETCO locations in Alpharetta, Crabapple, Holcomb Bridge Road, Sandy Springs, Smyrna. We've dropped our adoption fees for this weekend as an incentive. Our shelters are also open for adoptions. Visit us at for locations and event hours.

Foster a Furkid and give an animal a temporary home. By fostering, you'll help make room in our shelter for Hurricane Irma refugees. Click here to become a foster. When you foster, you have the power to help save lives.
