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.

Furkids Brainchild 15th Anniversary

Posted on Thursday, October 13th
