Lola is the most loving dog I have ever met. Her greatest joy is to be with my family and she is very eager to please. She gets along well with our 130 lb dog and is tenatious in her play.  She is a bit protective when a stranger comes to the house until she is reassured that they are friendly.  Away from home, she has been fine and friendly with all people and dogs. When traveling she does better for short distances and in a carrier. She responds well with consistent training and learns commands quickly. She should continue with training in her new home.  She just loves her chewy bones and squeaky, stuffed toys!  She is smart, playful and a loving girl who would be a wonderful addition to most any home.  


Lola's rescuer and now foster works in home health and came across Lola while visiting a patient. After having 9 puppies, she developed an infection but her owner would not take her to a vet. Her condition further deteriorated due to her poor living conditions. Her owner kept her chained to a tree near two huge ant hills and she was constantly covered in ants. The rescuer/foster  tried to work with the owner by providing vet care and quality food.  Initially,  he was diligent in caring for her but that only lasted for a week or so. At the last home health care visit, the rescuer/foster saw how much worse Lola looked so asked if she could take the dog and find her a good home. The owner agreed so Lola is now safe and being cared for in a loving manner. She is doing great and has been given a clean bill of health.  Lola is now ready to move on and find her forever home and keep on enjoying the good life she deserves.

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.
