FOSTER PARENT COMMENTS: Addie is a sweet and playful girl who is still very puppy-like.  She has discovered the joy of toys and loves nothing more than to play fetch with her humans or run around and toss a squeaky toy in the air!  Addie adores attention and is very affectionate.  She gets a little nervous when meeting new people, especially men, and needs to take introductions slow so she can build trust.  Once she warms up, she bonds very quickly.  

Addie would do best in a quiet home setting without too much hustle and bustle.  When she isn't entertaining herself with her toys, she loves to lay around and be a couch potato.  Addie has been attending training classes to work on her socialization skills and has already mastered sit, down, touch, wait, spin and twirl.  She is currently working on her leash manners and recall skills as well as learning how to properly socialize and meet new dogs and people.  It is evident that Addie did not have much practice with this in her previous life, but she is really coming out of her shell.

Addie will do best to acclimate to her new home with continued training, so we would like for her forever family to be willing to take her to training classes to help her fine tune her skills.  She has been working with a local trainer using only positive reinforcement methods and has been doing very well.  Addie's foster parents believe so strongly in the benefits of this training that they would like to donate a gift certificate for a 10 week training class to Addie's future forever family.  This is one special girl who is waiting patiently for an equally special family to make her their own! 

EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: Addie wound up at the Duplin County Shelter and found herself on the urgent list.  When BFPA was alerted to her situation, we were happy to bring this sweet girl into our program and help her on her journey to find her forever family!  Addie has been through a lot, and was quite terrified when she first came to BFPA.  It was evident that her past life was lacking and that she was likely very isolated.  Since coming to BFPA, she has undergone heartworm treatment and is now thriving in her foster home learning about all the luxuries of indoor living!

Some of the information contained in this biography includes approximations based on our expertise and is not guaranteed. We do home visits to finalize adoptions and/or deliver the adopted dog. Therefore, we prefer potential adopters live a reasonable distance to the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) of North Carolina.

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.
