Who is F.U.R.R.?

TiramisuFeline Urgent Rescue & Rehabilitation, or F.U.R.R., is the name Terry Schultz has given to her kitty rescue project in Waxhaw NC. Over the years, Terry has rescued & helped hundreds of cats that were in dire need. These include injured cats, feral cats, cats whose owners had died without making arrangements for their pets, abandoned cats that were left when their owners moved, mom cats with kittens, kittens whose mom cat had died…the list goes on and on. Basically they are all cats that would have been euthanized in a shelter, died on the streets from an illness or accident, or continued to reproduce and add to the cat overpopulation problem.

SamoaNot only has Terry helped the cats, but she has also helped many people in our community, people who have feral or stray cat overpopulation problems and can’t afford to spay or neuter, or get medical help for injured cats they’ve found.

In our community there is very little opportunity for low-cost spay/neuter, but Terry has spayed and neutered as many cats as she possible can, including the cats in several feral colonies that she takes care of.

SkittlesTerry also finds homes for as many cats as possible, and the number of cats who have been adopted because of Terry’s efforts is also in the hundreds. All these lucky kitties get full veterinary care including testing for FIV & FeLV, vaccinations, treatment for parasites and spay or neuter. Terry checks out all potential adopters to make sure both the adopted kitty and the new parents will be happy.

Terry has been paying for most of this with her own money. Even though she takes advantage of as many veterinary discounts and low-cost spay/neuter as possible, it is still very costly so we are asking for your help to help Terry continue this work by making a donation.

Any amount that you can contribute is greatly appreciated by Terry, tTwinkiehe cats and those of us who help and support F.U.R.R. The contributions you make through our PayPal donation page are secure, and if you don’t have a PayPal account you can use a credit card. 100% of all donations (after PayPal fees are deducted, if any) will go toward testing, spay/neuter, vaccinations, flea & worm and other necessary treatments, and food for rescued cats.

Even if you can’t help financially, please leave a comment below with your prayers, positive energy, good vibes and moral support which are all greatly appreciated, and needed, as well!

Thank you, and many purrs to all!

    Ms Terry,
    I own J.B.’s Midway BBQ in Monroe. I also have a sanctuary on my home property in Wesley Chapel. Currently caring for 28plus cats & kittens and a couple of dogs. Pretty certain there are a couple of litters in my woods. Moms usually deliver their 5-6 wk olds to my front porch. Most of mine are “fixed”. But I understand your experience. Heard you might come to Pet Smart. Look forward to meeting you.

    I need some advice. i do dog rescue (mostly Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue), but not so much experience with cat rescue. I have just discovered that a friend who I knew had “a lot” of cats, is really a hoarder, and has 17 or 19 of them in one small room. She does get them spayed/neutered and rabies shots, and they appear healthy. However, the sanitary conditions are appalling, and there is no quality of life at all for the cats. Every inch of the floor is covered with food and water containers and kitty litter pans. The only exercise they get is jumping from high places to low- they cannot do normal running or walking. I discovered this just recently, as she asked me to care for them while she was away. She returns tomorrow, and I intend to do an “intervention.” However, I need some ideas of WHAT can be done. Obviously, they need to be out of there ASAP before they or she gets ill, or they are seized by animal control, and then probably euthanized. They all are pretty cats, and seem healthy to me, although that is a miracle.

    Is there anyone who could take some at least? Could you give me any ideas? It really is an awful situation. Thanks for any and all help/advice- I know every rescue is pretty much full up now, with the economy and all. You can also reach me at 704-900-7850.

    I just rescued an FIV positive cat. I already have 4 FIV negative cats. I’m looking for a home for the new cat — any suggestions.

    Please, he is really sweet and would be wonderful as an only cat or with other FIV cats. FIV cats do not have a short life expectancy and FIV is not easily transmittable. He shows no FIV symptoms and is very loving and gentle. Gets along with my dog and other cats.

    Any financial help available-I am very poor. I’ve spent $300 already for a dog bite to his eye. Financial help for that? Financial help connected with extra veterinary care of FIV cats if I cannot find another home for him?

    I am sorry – I don’t understand this statement.

    I was desperately searching for help with 3 feral cats I had been feeding at a Wendy’s Restaurant in Rock Hill, SC. These cats were living and feeding in a very bad location. I needed someone to help with catching, spaying/neutering and rehoming these 3 beautiful tuxedo cats. Terry came over to Rock Hill and trapped two of them. She gave me good instructions on how to trap the last cat which she also took. Without her help I can only guess what the future would have held for these cats. Two of were pregnant females. Terry is taking great care of these cats and will give them the best shot at a great home. Way to go Terry! I wish there were more agencies like hers. I hope everyone who visits this website gives a donation. She is a feral cat’s best FRIEND!

    I am looking for assistance for 3 – 6wk old kittens that I rescued 2 wks ago from the bushes of an apt complex in Monroe. I tried to get contacts with residents there to get the Tortie Mom (who is friendly to people she knows) and one more spotted kitten, but I am not having a lot of luck. I would love to trap them and foster them as well.
    I thought I was going to have help with vet, shots and spay/neutering from a contact that does rescuing but it is not panning out. I found a responsible home for 1 kitten and have 3 darling babies left (including one calico). They are highly adoptable and I will want to foster them until they are adopted. Is your group able to help me? I can not afford to pay for vet bills on three kittens. Please help or lead me to some help, thanks, Sue, Indian Trail
