FURRY KIDS REFUGE

Rating: 5 stars   20 reviews

Issues: Animals

Location: PO Box 1442 Lees Summit MO 64063 USA

Mission: We are a no-kill, all volunteer animal rescue organization founded in 2003. We work with area shelters to rescue domestic pets and to provide safe haven for these abandoned, abused, or unwanted domestic animals. All animals in our care are spayed or neutered and receive all vaccinations and if necessary, life saving or necessary medical attention. When these foster animals are emotionally and physically healed, we search for the correct human companion for each, ensuring a loving, permanent home. We educate the public on the correct and moral way to care for their animals, including the importance of spaying and neutering pets to help stop the flow of abandoned and unwanted animals in our shelters and community. Whenever possible, financial assistance is provided to responsible pet owners who wish to spay or neuter their pets but cannot afford to do so. We exhange information and work with other humane rescue organizations to help rescue abandoned and abused animals. We strive to educate our community about the pet overpopulation and the necessity of spay/neuter programs in helping to control this problem. Our organization strongly believes that all animals deserve respect and should be treated with dignity in all circumstances. We strive to have all people share this philosophy, creating a healthier and kinder community for humans and animals alike.

We rescued two of our four legged family members from Furry Kids. They are a wonderful group of people and they will be my first call when the time comes to rescue another. They love all of the dogs that come through their doors and truly save lives. One of our dogs from them had some health issues due to his difficult life before meeting the Angels at Furry Kids and they were very helpful and supportive when the problems became overwhelming. We can't imagine our lives without our fur babies and are grateful to the Furry Kids staff and volunteers for giving them a second shot at life and helping them find us!

We recieved a mini Aussie pup that has become part of the family. The pup serves as a watchdog and early warning system since we live in the country. If vehicles come turn on to our road, he perks-up. The dog was in excellent shape physically and well cared for at the recue. When our vet looked him over, he gave his care a great review. The pup made an easy adjustment to our family with the support of the resuce and their advice.

My family includes two rescue dogs from Furry Kids, and I would recommend this fantastic organization to anyone looking for a pet. The people of Furry Kids made sure they connected me with pets that worked with my lifestyle and wishlist, and they went out of their way to make the adoption process an easy one. I think it is fantastic that Furry Kids offers clients a two week trial period to make sure a new pet is a good fit for the family. The people of this organization do the best job they can to set up successful adoptions, and I could not be more grateful to them for providing me with my dogs, Rudy and Benny.

We became aware of Furry Kids Refuge thru our vets office when we were needing to fill a ‘hole’ left by the passing of one of our dogs. Success! We have had him for 5 years now and can’t imagine our home without him. This last summer we had a stray show up and stay at our home. I contacted Carla to see if they could take him as we already had 2 dogs and it would be impossible to keep him. They did not have any vacancies at that time but if we could hold on a little longer, she could see what she could do. They did find a foster home for him and just recently he found a forever home. It was such a relief for us to be able to call someone to help and know he would have good care until he was adopted. Thank you Furry Kids Refuge for all you do and certainly hope you get the support you deserve. This organization is great!

I am guessing my puggle, named Lucy, was one of the first few dogs adopted through Furry Kids! I love my girl...we have traveled throughout the midwest doing agility! Thank you Furry Kids for your time, effort, thought, and most of all kind hearts! I appreciate all that you do, and I have referred many friends and family to your organization!

We adopted our 2nd dog from Furry Kids Refuge - our experience was so wonderful that I decided to dedicate my time to volunteering with this group. Everyone goes the extra mile and does everything they can to make sure these animals never go back to the abuse/abandonment/neglect they came from.

My fiance and I were looking for a new furry friend to bring home after losing our previous kitty. I met one of the Volunteers to meet our future prospective cat, and I knew immediately that these people were focused on the well being of the animal so much more than the other places we have visited. They know their animals inside and out, and they genuinely care that they find good and loving homes for them.
