I can’t think of an organization more deserving of our support than Furkids. Furkids spends more on their animals than any rescue I’ve come across - and I’ve checked out plenty. They do what is right, even when it’s going to be unimaginably difficult to do. Here’s just one example of how dedicated to saving lives Furkids truly is: Furkids has been working for months to move our cat shelter to a beautiful new home. To do that, we worked tirelessly for months to get as many cats adopted as we could. And we made great progress. But last week - only one week away from our move - the state shut down a rescue with over 100 homeless cats. They had nowhere to go, since even the municipal shelter in their county was closed due to quarantine. Furkids agreed to take in 88 of their cats, and two other rescues took the rest. Almost all of these cats and kittens were sick or injured in some way. Furkids didn’t do it because they had to, they did it because it’s the right thing to do. Now, Furkids is truly challenged while they nurse these cats back to health, and begin the biggest move in our history. Furkids truly needs your support now more than ever.
I am truly honored to be a part of Furkids. Every day, I get to work beside people who give selflessly and work tirelessly to give each and every cat and dog we touch some compassion, love, a chance at a better life, and a real home. The journey has had its heartbreaks and difficulties, but that’s what animal rescue is, and the love everyone at Furkids feels for our animals outweighs any of those bumps in the road. They help us at least as much as we help them.
As a life-long animal lover, of course my friends are all animal lovers too. I know you guys are! Can you help, even with just a small donation? If Furkids wins this Give Atlanta competition, they will earn another $17,000 over what they raise from people like you and me. And, you’ll be supporting a successful cause. Furkids has been around since 2002, and has saved almost 40,000 lives. They have won the Give Atlanta challenge the past two years. In this case, winning matters. I haven't set a goal for my team, since a goal in this case is a limit we don't need. We need to step up and help. Can you please? Thank you!
Furkids is a sanctuary for homeless animals and people who love them. We rescue defenseless animals; provide medical care, emotional nurturing, and training; and match them with families in forever homes. Our volunteer programs provide healing and growth for people who are strengthened by the human-animal bond.
