    I first came to know Furkids when searching for an adoptable cat for my good friend who was looking for "a big boy Tuxedo". That Tuxedo, who later came to be known as Jack, turned out to be the feline love of my friend's life an instant part of her family. Since then, I became a Furkids volunteer and more than ten years later, am proud to be part of an organization and a team who really cares about every single cat and every single dog in its shelters. And it's that care and love are what help these animals find their forever homes -- forever homes that are right for both the animal and family. Thank you, Furkids, for helping foster the understanding that every pet's life matters. ~Kristin W.

    I adopted a Furkid in 2008 (Maine coon) and supported the organization financially going forward from that time, participating in many of the Furkid events. I have been a volunteer with Furkids (cat shelter) for just under 2 years and love what Furkids accomplishes. I agree with the vision and believe it to be an outstanding nonprofit. I love visiting "my" cats every week!

    I have been involved with Furkids for 11 years as a volunteer in several capacities. Furkids has always been a great experience and the work that they do, the amount they've grown, is incredible. The animals are safe with Furkids for their entire lives and when they are adopted, it is to forever, loving homes that meet the highest standard for our animals. We take in the difficult cases, we champion the unadoptables, and every animal is treated with love and care. It is a great place to volunteer and donate.

    I've learned so much about cats and servers in so many roles that have been rewarding. I've been able to see the actual improvement that I've made on a few cat's lives and I get such great joy from having that opportunity.

    Furkids was exceptional. I appreciate how diligent they were in ensuring my new little man was coming to a home where he'd be taken care of and welcomed. Not every agency will check with your landlord that pets are accepted and with your vet if you already have pets. I'm really glad they do. The volunteers were kind and patient and you can tell they really love the animals. I highly recommend them!

    I volunteered with Furkids from 2003 to 2007, when I moved to Minnesota. I adopted my beloved dog, Priscilla from Furkids in 2007. She was a "foster failure." I fostered several cats/kittens and dogs for Furkids and they truly have the best support network for fosters and adopters. I am so proud that I was with this organization when they built their amazing shelter and consider then to be a best in class animal rescue

    I adopted both of my dogs, Willow and Annie, from SmallDog Rescue (now Furkids). I was so impressed with the organization, that when I retired 3 years ago I started volunteering with Furkids. I am constantly amazed at the number of animals that are saved by Furkids and the efforts that Furkids makes to ensure that not only the rescued dogs are well taken care of, but that the adopters are perfect matches for the dogs. I recommend adopting from Furkids to anyone who expresses an interest in getting a pet. I also recommend volunteering with Furkids because what I get from volunteering is so much more than what I give.
