FURever FURkids is a privately run rescue. All FURever FURkids' dogs, cats, small animals, and birds have come from situations such as being on death row at shelters, owners who can no longer keep them, or rescued from terrible situations. Each animal is fully vetted before adoption. The adoption process requires an application with vet references and a contract upon adoption. FURever FURkids started in 2009 and has adopted out OVER 300 animals since we began. FURever FURkids has a professional, working relationship as a rescue with area rescues, vets, shelters, and spay/neuter clinics. We love our vet! Go see Animal Medical Proffesionals in Ooltewah, TN and tell them we sent ya!!

Help the FURkids
Nico has been adopted!!!!!
Poor Nico had a rough life before I rescued him! He was outside, kept on chain all the time. He was not socialized or cared for AT ALL!!! When I got him from a shelter he was VERY thin and scared of his own shadow!
After a few weeks, he totally changed! He became a very loving and playful boy! He was adopted and while the family took him for a walk, he slipped out of his collar and was GONE. =(
Nico was missing for over a month!
I kept searching and searching and 1 day I got a call from a local shelter. The lady said she thought that she picked up Nico!!! I went to the shelter and.....it was HIM!!! I was SO happy!!! He knew me right away! The family did not want him back because they were afraid it would happen again.
I wanted to keep him, but having several dogs already and rescuing dogs like Nico, I knew I couldn't keep him and that I needed to find him a great home, where he would be a part of the family! Not just a dog on a chain like he was done before he came to me.
Nico was adopted and he fits in PERFECTLY with his new family! He is now loved, like all pets should be!!!
He is 1 of my favorites that I have EVER rescued and will always be MY Nico!!!
I love you Nico!!!
PLEASE don't be a part of the problem - Be a part of the solution. Have your pet spayed or neutered. Thousands of animals languish and die alone in shelters every day. Many are the products of unplanned and irresponsible breeding. Don't let the offspring of an animal that you allowed to reproduce end up this way. Spaying and neutering helps to ensure the health and safety of your pet, and makes you a responsible member of your community.
Come see us at Tractor Supply in Collegedale, TN on 1 Sunday of each month from 2 to 6 PM. Tractor Supply is located at: 9408 Apison Pike Ooltewah, TN 37363 Just check with us to see what Sunday we will be there!
FURever FURkids is a small rescue/foster group. I started fostering a few of years ago, for different shelters and rescue groups. However...I kept getting emails and phone calls of animals needing help, so I had to help them! I also find dogs and cats on the streets and can't just leave them there! All of my personal pets I have found on the streets or adopted from shelters/rescues! ALL of my pets are FULLY vetted, spayed/neutered (if old enough) and most are house or crate trained! They just need a permanent place to call home! ALL DOGS ADOPTED FROM FURever FURkids, MUST BE KEPT ON HEART WORM PREVENTION (such as Heartgard). NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
All pets are kept in a home setting. Fosters and of course adopters are ALWAYS needed! If you are interested in fostering, please contact us! All pets in your home must be spayed/neutered prior to fostering.
It's very simple....
Just email or call and we can set up a time to meet, along with the pet you are interested in.
There is an application (posted below) and a contract to be filled out. We can email it you you as well, if that is easier. Once we review the completed application, we will let you know if the application is approved or denied. The application is filled out prior to meeting the pet, so vet references can be checked. If approved, an appointment to meet is set with you and the pet. If the meeting is successful and you decide to adopt, you will have to fill out a contract, pay the adoption fee, and then you may take your new FURkid home the same day (as long as they have been vetted)! The cats/kittens adoption fee is $25 and up. The dog/puppies are usually $50 and up It all depends on the cost of each pets vetting, etc. as it ranges from pet to pet.
We will call/email and check on the dog/cat from time to time to see how they are doing and we also LOVE pictures! Please share updates with us on Facebook and thru email !
***REMEMBER, if you adopt a pet from F.F. and cannot keep him/her YOU MUST CONTACT US!!!***
FYI: MOST of my rescued dogs are crate trained. So if you do not continue with that when you get them home, they may have accidents until you can fully train them your way.

Our purpose at FURever FURkids is to place an animal in a good and responsible home where it will receive proper care, love and supervision for life so that it does not ever become a stray again. To insure this, we have formulated this application to assist us in the careful selection of home placement for the pets we have available for adoption. You must be 21 years or older to adopt. I will contact your vet prior to adoption. We reserve the right to refuse any pet adoption.
