Purrkids: Changing Lives in Profound Ways

Posted on Sunday, December 9th

Purrkids: Changing Lives in Profound Ways Ever heard of Purrkids? It’s a wonderful program that Furkids created to help certain kitties cope with the difficult, and sometimes even life-threatening challenges they’ve faced. While the cats we rescue can’t always tell us about what they’ve been through - what they’ve seen and the pain they may have experienced - we can tell when a kitty who needs help arrives and we have a wonderful way to help them cope and find their furever home. Part of Furkids’ mission is to “...heal the whole animal, physically and emotionally, restoring its health and its spirit”, and the Purrkids program is one… READ MORE >

Hurricane Matthew Victims Update

Posted on Thursday, October 27th

- UDPATE -  Two weeks ago, Furkids took in 63 Hurricane Matthew victims who had been affected by severe flooding in the Carolinas. We asked for contributions to help with the care of these helpless animals who had lost everything, and our fans stepped up. Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to provide for all the Hurricane Matthew dogs and cats who came into our shelters. Many of the animals were placed into safe, warm, loving foster homes and are settling in well and recovering. Again, we want to thank all our supporters, volunteers, fosters and staff who… READ MORE >

Fabulous FeLV+ Furkids

Posted on Wednesday, August 10th

It’s no secret that Furkids is committed to saving as many animals as possible. We are a rescue that isn’t afraid to take on the hard cases… even the FeLV+ ones. Furkids has two FeLV+ suites, one at the cat shelter and one at the dog shelter, which house 17 cats total. FeLV+ cats can live long, happy lives, and Furkids provides them a warm, loving, safe environment to live out the rest of their lives, unless they happen to get adopted (which, unfortunately, doesn’t happen very often).  When a cat is FeLV+, it means that the cat has a… READ MORE >

Lemond Goes Home!

Posted on Monday, June 15th

Lemond stole our hearts, and gave new meaning to the phrase, “Everybody’s beautiful, in their own way”. When Lemond came to Furkids months ago, he looked like a very sad cat. He was filthy, flea-ridden, and covered in grease; missing most of an ear, and had just one “good” eye. His jaw was crooked, and he drooled a little. An initial exam identified some problems - Lemond needed to have his damaged eye removed, and his crinkled ear was due to a severe ear-mite infection. Our docs couldn’t find anything specifically wrong with his jaw; so we decided to leave… 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 >
