COMMENTS FROM FOSTER HOME: Axel is part of the body shop kittens. Their mother found a good spot to hide them until they were old enough. She knew a good foster family was in the kind man who brought her food every day. Axel has a habit. He is addicted to belly rubs. He will flop at your feet if he thinks he can get you to stop for a minute. He offers a big purr in return. This mellow boy would do good with kids over 5 and kitty experience. Dogs of all shapes and sizes don't phase him as he has grown up with 3. He would be a great friend for another kitty or adopted with one of his siblings. Ready for the drop, pet, and purr?

EVERY CAT HAS A STORY: Momma was a stray behind the work place of a foster family.

About Best Friend Pet Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Best Friend Pet Adoption (BFPA) is a no-kill animal rescue organization based in central North Carolina. BFPA has no building, office, or shelter. We are an all-foster network committed to helping dogs and cats in need of homes. Individual donations are our most important source of income as we receive no public funding.

Our purpose is to provide medical assistance, foster homes, and adoption services to previously lost, abandoned, abused, or neglected animals in Wake County, NC and the surrounding counties. Our mission is to educate this disposable society in which we live that every life should be valued and cherished and is directly linked to human responsibility and commitment.

Almost all the animals we rescue require immediate medical attention. BFPA never turns away or euthanizes an animal because of the expense involved in returning them to good health. All our rescued animals are evaluated for temperament, examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, microchipped (if possible) and sterilized, if age appropriate. Cats and dogs receive monthly flea/tick preventative and dogs also receive monthly heartworm preventative.

The most important ingredients we provide to these animals are loving care and a safe haven -- something most of them have never experienced. These cats and dogs live in volunteer foster homes until we find them a loving permanent home, however long it takes. We match these precious beings to a single, couple or family who understand cats and dogs should be full participating members of the family. Our hope is that these animals never have to experience being unloved again.

Since our beginning, BFPA has rescued and placed thousands of cats and dogs into their forever homes.

BFPA was created in 1998 by two Raleigh-area women who had volunteered with other established rescues in the Triangle. Their dedication to help homeless dogs and cats has led to an organization that has grown to over 225 volunteers strong.

BFPA received 501(c)(3) status in 1999.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets can be met during our adoption events (mostly on Saturdays) or by arrangements with the foster family.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoptions require submission of an application which is processed and and must be approved by our adoption coordinator. Potential adopters then take the animal on a trial (minimum of 2 weeks) before the adoption is finalized. This helps to ensure a good fit between the adopting family and the animal. All animals must be up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchipped before the adoption can be finalized. Adoption fee is $225 for dogs, $115 for cats.
