FurKidz Finder

ascot dear Ann Houdini

 Well, hello there and welcome to the Furkidz website. You're well on the way to finding your perfect match of canine or feline companion.

If you haven't ever visited this site before, we want you to enjoy the experience, and to assist you, so we've outlined just a couple of quick hints on best use of the site, along with why we're here.

Furkidz has grown in response to the increasing number of homeless and unwanted dogs or cats, who've been forgotten and overlooked by people buying directly from backyard breeders or pet shops.

We visit a large number of shelters in a variety of locations to interact with and photograph their dogs and cats and to provide you a brief online description to entice you, and convince you that adoption is THE option.

How to use this site:

To save you time, we've added a range of search options (check out our FurKidz Finder on the top left hand side)

The first filter option asks what type of pet you're looking for, and then, and often most popular option, is simply tosearch by region to find your nearest shelter, and make the time to visit. You'll have the opportunity meeting a range of pure and mixed breed dogs and cats, of varying ages, sizes, colours and gender, making it a simple solution when choosing your next pet.

Alternatively, once you've entered your type of pet and your region, you can also use advanced filters for breed, age, size, colour or gender if you're looking for more specific attributes.

We invite you to enter your preferences, to view our Furkidz, already sterilised, healthy and vaccinated, and just patiently waiting for someone like you, to call their own. The ones you'll initially see here, are a small selection from our last shelter visit and just some of the wonderful animals we've photographed who're waiting for adoption at HAWS, in Hartbeespoort.

Enter your choice off pet, and region, to reveal more equally amazing animals just ready and waiting for new homes with people with big hearts - people like you.
