Furkids was founded in 2002 when then-Equifax executive assistant Samantha Shelton found a mother cat depositing three newborn kittens in her backyard. What began simply as a quest to find shelter for four cats in a place where they wouldn’t be euthanized has grown into a nonprofit organization that today operates the largest cage-free, no-kill shelter in Georgia. The organization has been confirmed as one of the top charities in America by Independent Charities of America. Of the top six animal rescue organizations in metro Atlanta, Furkids has the lowest percentage of its budget dedicated to administrative expenses. And for every $1,000 Furkids accepts in donations, the organization places more pets into permanent homes than virtually every other organization. SmallDog Rescue & Humane Society was founded in 1995 by the late Brenda (Bren) Kyle, who rescued homeless dogs and cared for them in her home. She also convinced her friends to serve as foster caregivers. Bren took a few dogs at a time and sat in front of a willing merchant’s store, interviewing and screening people who were interested in adopting her rescued charges, matching people and pets. When she died in 2004, she willed the organization to Anne Stockton, who, with a new board of directors, built SDR into a full-fledged rescue organization: a 501(c)3 with a dog shelter and more than 100 volunteers.

Thanks to donations, we are able to provide excellent medical care for all of our little orphans. Our volunteers work tirelessly on training, socializing, and giving the dogs all of the loving care that they so much deserve. Thanks to our friends and supporters, we have been able to rescue hundreds of dogs from certain death, and place them in loving forever homes.

Furkids cares for more animals on a daily basis than any other local organization, including the Atlanta Humane Society. Approximately 500 animals – mostly cats – reside with Furkids, at the organization’s shelter, adoption centers and in its foster program. SmallDog Rescue & Humane Society currently has approximately 85 animals in its program, either in the shelter or foster homes. During the past several years, the two organizations have had a loose affiliation in which they have exchanged selected animals, each helping the other rescue or place cats or dogs into adoptive homes. Both have exacting adoption processes and a commitment to the highest level of care, including shelter and foster home care, for homeless animals in their programs.
