How did Furballs begin?
Furballs Furever Rescue began operating in December of 2020. The pandemic had come and taken over the lives of many, including that of our founder Kat. With her new found free time she began to dedicate her time and resources to local rescues.
Here she met her very first foster pups; two unruly six month old shepherds by the name of Apollo and Luna. Instantly enamored, Kat was inspired to learn how rescues operate. When Apollo developed a growth on the side of his neck she reached out for a vet check. By the time a vet appointment was available the mass had grown to the size of a baseball. Thankfully everything was done to ensure the mass was properly drained and Apollo was given a clean bill of health.
As she continued working with the rescue, Kat learned their procedures and realized that there were a lot of animals, similar to Apollo, not receiving the medical attention as quickly as they needed. She also realized that some of the policies were harmful to the welfare of the animals. The animals craved human affection and need medical care. Losing lives that could have been saved with proper veterinary care, and simple safety precautions was non-negotiable.
Here began Furballs Furever Rescue, a nonprofit 501c3, animal rescue. We are 100% donation based and volunteer run. We love our furballs and snugglers and believe they deserve more than just human decency. They deserve to be cared for and loved, vetted and hugged. So we will continue to help do so and help these animals OUR way. Because once a part of the Furball family, always a part of it.
Our mission: Abandoned, unwanted but never unloved. We here at Furballs Furever Rescue have made it our mission to rescue and vet as many furballs as we can get our hands on. We also vow to love them until we are able to find them their perfect Furever home.
MEET OUR TEAM
I have been deeply devoted to animals since I was a child. Growing up I was constantly seen bring home animals in need. Never did I think that my drive to help Furballs in need would lead to me opening up my own rescue. I strive to help every animal but I understand that it takes a village. So thank you to those that continue to help me, help them.
