Paws, Whiskers and Wags proudly support Furkids, the Atlanta based pet charity that provides care for homeless pets and helps them find a forever home. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, between five and seven million companion animals enter animal shelters every year. Since there is no national organization that monitors these shelters, no one can say how humane many of these shelters actually are. Luckily, shelters like Furkids of Atlanta make it a point to be as kind to rescue animals as possible. Here are just a few reasons why Paws, Whiskers & Wags Pet Crematory supports Furkids with regular contributions:
- They rescue animals
We praise any facility that actively seeks to rescue animals down on their luck. Since their establishment ten years ago, Furkids has rescued over 6,000 dogs and cats from uninhabitable circumstances. Furkids even has a special house exclusively for cats with FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus).
- They’re humane
Not only does Furkids get animals off the streets and out of unlivable circumstances, but they work hard to provide an environment that is considerably better. Unlike other animal shelters in the Atlanta area, Furkids does not house animals in cages and never puts them down. Furkids is such an outstanding shelter that it has earned six consecutive “Best in America Seal of Excellence” awards from the Independent Charities of America.
- They unite pets with owners
Another reason to love Furkids is their commitment to finding loving homes for their rescued animals. Furkids regularly sends some of their cats out to seven Atlanta-area PetSmart and PETCO locations in order to increase the chances of adoption. When you adopt from Furkids, you’ll make a poor animal very happy and you’ll gain a new best friend in the process.
Though you and your beloved pet may have many good times, there will come a time when you need to put your good friend to rest. When that sad day comes, contact Paws, Whiskers & Wags.
