FurKidz is a registered Non-Profit-Organisation, founded to assist Animal Shelters across South Africa in re-homing their animals. Furkidz provides an easily searchable, comprehensive database of rescue pets available for adoption. We visit shelters, take pictures and film short video clips of their animals, write pet profiles, upload the information and post fundraising events and general news. We also provide an online Forum, a Library filled with pet related articles and a comprehensive service section where people can find vets, groomers, behaviourists and pet sitters. Regular newsletters are sent out, pet related articles written and posted and FurKidz hosts and supports fundraising events and adoption days.
