FOSTER PARENT COMMENTS: Jax in one word is fantastic! He is a big bundle of love and affection. Jax loves to play with other dogs, he is a young dog who sees the world through puppy goggles.  Jax would love to find a forever home with a fenced in yard that he can run around in. He would also do great with another canine playmate or an active family that would include him in their adventures. Jax wants to chase cats because he wants to play with them so he would do best in a home without a cat.  Jax promises to shower his forever family with love and adoration!

EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: Jax was rescued by his foster parents when they were alerted to his situation. Jax was formerly owned by several college students who weren't prepared or able to care for him. He was being kept in a crate that was way too small for him for extended periods of time. Jax was also suffering from an eye condition that caused his lashes to rub against his corneas. BFPA was happy to bring this amazing pup into our network so he could have the eye surgery he so desperately needed. His eyes have healed and there are no residual long term effects and he is ready to complete his journey to find his forever home.

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.
