About Furkids (provided by Samantha Shelton, Furkids’ Founder and Director)
“Furkids, Inc., founded in 2002, is a 501(c)3, charitable, non-profit organization that provides a cage-free, no-kill shelter for rescued cats and dogs where they can experience the best care in a loving environment until they are adopted. Each year, Furkids rescues, shelters, sterilizes, rehabilitates, and places hundreds of animals in permanent, loving homes.
Furkids is one of the most successful nonprofit animal rescue organizations in the southeast, operating the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter for homeless cats in Georgia and a no-kill shelter for dogs. Furkids cares for more animals on a daily basis than any other local organization, including the Atlanta Humane Society. Currently, Furkids cares for approximately 600 cats and dogs at the organization’s shelters, adoption centers and in its foster program. During its ten years, Furkids has rescued and altered more than 7,000 animals. The 2011 union of Furkids with SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society expanded operations to include both homeless cats and dogs.”
About SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society (from the website)
“SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. (SDR) is a 501(c)(3) Georgia nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to finding loving families for homeless dogs in Georgia.
We rescue “at risk” dogs from local shelters and animal control facilities. “At risk” dogs are those who have run out of time at shelters, have medical conditions, or need more socialization before being placed in a home. We also rescue many highly adoptable small breeds – Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Poodles, Dachshunds, Maltese, Terriers, Bichon Frises – it is a truly a myth that only mixed breeds end up homeless!
Our volunteers work to socialize our dogs and provide them with loving care. Through our foster homes, we assess the dogs in a home setting, allowing us to better understand the kind of home and family the dog will need.”
