Zoey loves being petted, cuddled and is acclimating well to being part of a loving pack and living the good life!  She is happy to take little laps around the backyard but when inside, she's mostly low key and will find a good spot to relax.  She loves her crate  and it is best for her to have any long lasting chews (rawhides, etc.)  when in her crate because she can be somewhat possessive of them.  She's been good with all people she's been around but she gets the zoomies and I think could easily knock down a small child. She likes most dogs but may do best with a dog her size or bigger.  Zoey chases cats and may do the same with small dogs.  She's great with proper introductions and would probably do best with a submissive/relaxed and mellow dog. She may not do well in a dog park. Zoey currently lives with 3 other dogs and gets along great with them. . She's great on a leash (with someone who knows how to properly walk a dog!!) and will walk beside you.  She's fine with passing dogs and mostly ignores them.  The fosters  got her DNA tested - she tested as  Lab, Pit, Husky & Malamute mix.  She has lived with her current fosters for over a year.  They love her dearly but because of changes in their life, they feel having 4 dogs may no longer be manageable.  They would love to find a wonderful forever home for Zoey so she can continue to feel part of a loving pack.  Will that be your home??  Please use the email in the below disclaimer to find out more about Zoey.  


Zoey was found as a puppy in Raleigh and kept in a pen for close to 6 years.  She had food, water and shelter but was not getting much exercise, attention, etc.  The current fosters convinced the owners to allow them to take the dog and give her a better life. The foster parents and a trainer have worked hard with Zoey to give her socialization skills, help her insecurities and allow her to grow into the great dog she is becoming.

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.
