FurKidz is a registered non-profit organisation founded specifically to increase the number of animals being adopted from shelters across South Africa.

Our mission is to show South Africans how many wonderful shelter animals there are out there and how many different and unique characters are looking for forever homes.

We visit each shelter, take pictures of their cats and dogs, edit the pictures, upload them to the FuKidz website and monitor their adoption progress. We also post interesting animal events and articles, write food and nutrition articles and have a professional animal behaviourist on call for questions.

In the past dogs and cats were relying on your visit to the shelter and their chances of being adopted depended greatly on season, weather and luck, but at ALL the shelters can be 'visited' in an afternoon.

Our FurKidz Finder makes it easy to sort through hundreds of ads by using search criteria like breed, age and colour. You can browse through our database without being restricted by location, time or the emotional pull of visiting a shelter.

At FurKidz you will find puppies, kittens, cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes. We have over 3000 animals listed on our website and work together with over 50 shelters.
