Saving Tiny Kittens with Swimmer Syndrome
Furkids is an animal rescue and shelter for homeless animals and the people who love them.
Each rescued homeless animal receives the best medical care and emotional nurturing to heal their spirit and restore their health; preparing them for their perfectly matched forever home. Our volunteer programs provide restorative and personal fulfillment for people who are strengthened by the human-animal bond, and by the beautiful natural surroundings at the new Furkids campus in Cumming.
It all began in 2002.
Since then, Furkids has saved more then 35,000 injured, abandoned or soon-to-be-euthanized animals. Furkids is a 501©(3) nonprofit charitable organization operating Georgia’s largest no kill shelter for rescued cats, as well as a no-kill shelter for dogs. Last year, Furkids rescued, altered, cared for, and placed over 4,965 homeless animals.
Way more than a shelter.
Our program includes a serene new destination animal sanctuary, Pet Adoption Center, 12 PetSmart and Petco store adoption centers, Happy Tabby Café, 400+ foster homes, TransFUR pet transport program, and four thrift stores.
A joyous unique shelter destination.
Not only do the animals enjoy the natural beauty of gardens and water lily ponds of our new Furkids campus, you’ll enjoy visiting too. Furkids also operates a 5,000 square-foot shelter for our dogs, which will be relocated to this amazing new natural campus, directly on miles of Greenway trails, in the near future.
Complete veterinary services.
From surgery to rehab, all animals receive complete medical and emotional care from licensed veterinarians to restore their health and find their spirit.
Volunteers of ALL ages!
We couldn’t do what we do without our community of thousands of volunteers. We’re the only shelter that connects kids with animals with our FurTales program and other projects.
Welcoming FIV+ and FeLV+ cats.
We accept cats that might be needlessly euthanized if not rescued.
Furkids mission is to rescue homeless animals, provide them with the best medical care and nurturing environment while working to find them a forever home. Furkids heals the whole animal, physically and emotionally restoring their health and their spirit.
Furkids' vision is to create a peaceful, unique destination, carved out of nature, where visitors can walk dogs along a nature trail, play with cats in their indoor/outdoor home, enjoy tranquility in a memorial garden, and all of our animals can experience sunlight and fresh air. Our shelter would also include a low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter clinic open to the public.
