Furkids is Georgia's largest no-kill animal shelter which cares for over 700 cats and dogs each day. The Furkids’ mission is “to provide a 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 our rescued animals; and to inform the public about pet overpopulation, promote sterilization and provide information for low-cost high-quality spay/neuter organizations.”
In 2013 Furkids rescued over 1,500 cats and dogs and found loving, forever homes for over 1,300 animals. The goal for 2014 is to rescue 2,014 animals.
Throughout the year I will be featuring Furkids’ cats who are available for adoption.
Sharona is a four-year old domestic short hair tortoiseshell kitty. Here is Sharona’s description from the Furkids’ website:
‘Oh my little pretty one, pretty one. When you gonna give me some time Sharona.’ Sharona is a pretty tabbico kitty who lives up to these lyrics of the song of the same name by The Knack. She has nothing but time and is waiting for her purrrfect family to find her and adopt her so she can spend lots of time giving kitty love and purrs. She is a sweet girl who is ready to find her permanent new home. Look into her lovely eyes and you will want to sing, “My my my my Sharona” every day, so apply to meet Sharona and make her the happiest kitty in the world. She will sing her kitty version of her song to you!
