We serve all of metro-Atlanta and surrounding counties. We operate seven full-time, retail adoption centers at five Petsmart locations and two Petco locations. Visit www.furkids.org for a listing of our locations.
Furkids was founded in 2002 and has become Georgia's largest, no-kill, cage-free animal shelter. We care for approximately 500 animals a day. We operate a beautiful and fun shelter for our cats, as well as a foster home network for our dogs and kittens and special needs animals, and our seven retail adoption centers. Volunteers and donations are always needed to help keep things running at the highest standard. Come join our family - we have a great time saving Georgia's homeless animals together! We also operate an amazing thrift store six days a week in Norcross! We appreciate your donations for the store. Visit www.furkids.org for more details.
Come Meet our Pets:
We conduct tours and meet and greets at our shelter by appointment. Adoptions are done seven days a week and the cats at our adoption centers can be seen during store hours. The first step is to complete an online application so an adoption counselor can contact you.
Our Adoption Process:
Please complete our online application. Once received, an adoption counselor will contact you to discuss the animal(s) you are interested in and discuss your application. Visit www.furkids.org for a listing of our requirements and adoption fees.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
