Adopting A Friend

Furkids houses over 1.000 rescue cats and dogs in our program. Once you have located the animal you would like to adopt (online or through a PetSmart/Petco adoption center), the first step towards adopting is to fill out an adoption application at www.furkids.org

Our volunteers work hard to respond to all adoption applications or inquiries within 24 – 72 hours. Below are some of the frequently asked questions regarding our adoption policies and procedures. If you have any further questions regarding our adoption policies or procedures, please e-mail us at adopt@furkids.org.

What is included in the adoption fee?

The adoption fee includes testing, complete (up to their current age) medical care, vaccinations, microchip, and spay/neuter. We will also give you, or mail to you, a copy of the animal’s medical records, which you can give to your vet.

All animals have the following vetting included in their adoption fee:

  • Sterilization
  • Combo test for cats/heartworm test for dogs
  • FVRCP/DHLPP vaccinations
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Leukemia vaccinations
  • Dewormings
  • Flea treatment
  • Earmite treatment (if needed)
  • Microchip
  • Any other vetting as needed, such as additional testing, major surgery, etc.
  • Ongoing complimentary nail trimmings
  • Furkids as a resource for the life of the animal

What are your adoption policies & procedures?  (There are some exceptions to these rules.)

  • You must be at least 21 years of age to apply.
  • Your current animals must be up to date on rabies and spayed or neutered.
  • We do not offer same-day adoptions; adoption applications take up to 24 to 72 hours to process.
  • Our kittens require an animal companion in the home.
  • Be aware that some of our cats and kittens are a part of a bonded pair, which cannot be separated.


Applicants are required to sign a binding adoption contract.

Who We Are

Furkids combined with Small Dog Rescue is Georgia's largest no-kill animal shelter with the largest cage free cat shelter in the Southeast. Together we are now called Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters. We consider ourselves match makers and place over 2,000 animals each year into adoptive homes.

Furkids’ Mission: 


  • To provide a cage-free, no-kill shelter for our rescued animals where they can experience the best care in a loving environment until they are adopted.
  • To find permanent, loving, homes for all our rescued animals.
  • To inform the public about pet overpopulation, promote sterilization, and provide information for low-cost high-quality spay/neuter services.
