The Issue: Lack of Resources for Animals with Special Needs

Animals with special needs require extra attention. While few shelters have the resources to provide ongoing support for them, even fewer families have the ability to adopt and care for their medical needs. Therefore, these animals are often euthanized, or spend their lives in no-kill rescue centers.

The Campaign: Providing Medical Care for Underserved Pets

If this Grassroots campaign raises $360, then Furkids can provide one month of medicine, supplies, and treatments for seven animals with special needs. Each additional $360 raised will fund medicine, supplies, and treatments for another seven animals for one month. Furkids cares for more than 75 animals with special needs, including cats with feline-immunodeficiency virus. The organization rescues these animals from the streets and other shelters, and provides medical care to ensure they live comfortable lives.

Furkids

After discovering a stray cat with kittens that no shelter would house, Samantha Shelton founded Furkids, a no-kill animal shelter, more than a decade ago. To combat this and other examples of companion-animal overpopulation, her organization conducted adoptions through a network of foster homes. As a result, Furkids rescued 216 animals in its first year, and today has rescued more than 6,000 animals, caring for more than 600 on a daily basis. To do this, Samantha and her team maintain a cage-free cat shelter, dog shelter, a separate shelter for cats with feline-immunodeficiency virus, and nine adoption centers. In addition to housing cats and facilitating adoptions, Furkids works with local residents to sterilize homeless cats in order to prevent the spread of feral colonies.
