Ewok is one of the cutest dogs you'll ever see.  He is a sweet boy who has had a very difficult life.  He came to us in terrible condition and we have no doubt that in addition to being severely neglected, he has also seen abuse in his life. His hair was very matted and he had to be shaved.    He has slowly been learning to trust and he follows his foster mom around everywhere (his dad, if mom is not home!).  He has really learned to love curling up on the couch or bed.  His favorite place to sleep is the small round dog bed we bought for him - he absolutely loves his spot under the window!   While Ewok currently lives with a 6 year old child, he should go to a home without children.  Quick movements make him nervous so he is better around adults.  Ewok spent the first week in his foster home growling at his 78 pound Rottie brother (who is very patient).  He's gotten a lot better with the big boy and he has been fine with our 52 pound pittie girl.  He is now trying to learn to play with both dogs...size is nothing!!!  He is learning that he can have doggie friends too. How life has changed for him.  

Ewok has overcome medical conditions.  While he has some cataracts. he gets around great.  He has had a previously broken spine that was never taken care of - he is on a daily inexpensive medication and  this old injury no longer  causes him any pain. NOTE:  His adoption will include a years worth of pain medicine.  He is on a stool softener because going potty can be painful with the spine but he's doing great.  Finally, Ewok has a heart murmur but it causes NO issues whatsoever.   Ewok loves going on gentle walks and hanging out outside but he has become quite adept at the life of luxury inside his new house.

Ewok needs someone who sees the diamond he really is.  He deserves the love and commitment he's never known.  He needs a person/family who wants to make up for all of the sadness that he's previously known.   

EVERY DOG HAS A STORY:   When you think of a tiny dog, you think of a coddled, spoiled and well loved animal.     From what we can see, Ewok has probably never known these things and if he had, it was a very long time ago.     He was rescued from a very rural shelter where he didn’t stand a chance and luckily, a BFPA volunteer came across a Facebook plea to save him. He had been picked up as a stray on the side of a highway.     He was so matted that the mats restricted his movement and his entire coat was shaved down to the skin.    He was skinny and  absolutely terrified.    He was obviously abused as well as neglected.   Never again will he know such a life and he is doing well in foster care.  He is looking for someone to provide his forever home full of love and tenderness.  Could that home be yours?

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.
