FOSTER COMMENTS:  Cosmo loves his toys, especially furry toys with squeakers preferably with feet and ears he can nibble on.   He likes to play and hang out with his foster siblings.  After he gets tired, he loves to cuddle up with my husband and me and the two small pups.  He enjoys leash walks around the  neighborhood.  His favorite activity is playing with toys.  He dragged 15 toys out the other day:-)  This little guy is not going to get bored. He is eager to please and wants to learn. Cosmo craves love and wants to be with his humans and dog pack. He has bursts of young puppy energy but then he just wants to curl up and snuggle. He is doing very well with his training and knows sit, down and is learning shake and wait.  He would likely enjoy a household that had another small young dog he could play with but that will also give him lots of personal attention, love and cuddles. I think he would also do well in a home without another dog but where he would be given lots of human interaction and play time.  

He would do best with older children, perhaps 12+. He might be OK with younger kids but it would depend upon the child and their experience with dogs.  His is still a little "mouthy" and he has bursts of energy where he bounds around like a kangaroo which could scare a really little toddler.  

EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: Little Cosmo was pulled from a rural shelter near the coast right before Hurricane Matthew struck NC.  He was thin, frightened and had been suffering from a bad flea allergy.  BFPA has been treating him and his coat is recovering and growing back nicely.  He is putting on weight and living the good life now!  He is a sweet little pup who quickly came out of his shell once he was in a loving foster home. He would make a wonderful addition to someones home. He is a snuggle bug!!   Please consider adopting Cosmo!

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.
