Special Cats

Furkids is one of only a few animal rescue organizations in Georgia that has a dedicated location to house FIV+ cats. Through public awareness and education, our goal is to place our FIV+ cats into loving, permanent homes where they can flourish. The first thing to realize is that FIV is not a death sentence! Adopting an FIV+ cat is virtually the same as adopting any other cat — they are affectionate, beautiful, funny, playful, and special in their own unique ways.

The adoption fee for FIV+ cats is $0. That’s right! It’s $0 for a full-vetted, healthy, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped kitty friend that happens to have FIV.

Adopt an FIV+ cat and receive one year of free vetting at our Doraville cat shelter. We want to show you that FIV+ cats are just like every other cat. Let us prove it to you – adopt an FIV+ cat today!


The following two links contain more information about FIV+ cats: Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and Pet Education (.com).

The first step towards adopting is to submit an adoption application. You may do so online or in person through one of our adoption center locations.

Once you have submitted an adoption application, our volunteer staff will contact you within 24 – 72 hours. If you have any questions, you can contact us by email at adopt@furkids.org. Thank you for your interest in our cats!

Please be patient while we gather the latest list of adoptable pets in your area.
