FURRY KIDS REFUGE
August 22, 2013

I have been a Volunteer/Foster Mom for Furry Kids for several years now. I don't work a "regular" job due to health reasons, and being involved with this organization has been a BLESSING!! The LOVE and CARE for the animals that is shown by EVERYONE in the group is AWESOME. From the President/Founder of the group all the way down to the Volunteers. We are comprised of mainly Foster homes and have 1 small kennel. Everyone in the group gives 110% into their care, love and helping to raise funds to support the rescue. We are a Non-Profit Organization and depend solely on our dedicated volunteers, fosters and loyal supporters. We have NO paid employees, The volunteers spend their personal time finding FUREVER HOMES for the animals in our program and then go back out to rescue more homeless and desperate animals. As an ALL-Volunteer rescue, we do not have a building for potential adopters to come and meet the animals in our program; we bring the animals to them.
We hold adoption events each Saturday at Lee's Summit Missouri PetCo. Each event requires we physiclly set up an environment that is comfortable not only for the animals we bring out, but also for the potential adopters that come to meet them.
Our group has operated over the past years with funding from friends, family and supporters to pay for veterinary costs, boarding, transportation and food for our rescued animals. The adoption fees we charge go toward recovering a portion of the cost of veterinary care, as you can imagine the fees can not cover all the costs incurred. Donations are small and every penny is used to care for and save these loving pets.
Our organization 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..

FURRY KIDS REFUGE
January 16, 2012

I have been with Furry Kids for about 1 1/2 years now and it has been an awesome experience! The volunteers are all very professional and knowledgeable about the rescues they have. They are all very "hands on" when it comes to working with all the animals. I believe that having our animals in foster homes as opposed to being housed in a shelter gives them (the animals) and us (the volunteers) more one on one time making our animals more socialized and ready to enter a forever home. We are able to see how the animals interact with our family members a well as our own animals. We at Furry Kids have a mission to bring loving families and needy animals together in order to build a healthy bond and a lasting/loving friendship.
