Give a Wag! Gives to Cary Shelters

Best Friend Pet Adoption wants to know if you are ready to meet your new best friend, because he or she can't wait to meet you! This rescue is 100% volunteer based; there is no brick and mortar shelter - only a loving army of animal advocates who love, teach, socialize and foster all of Best Friend's adoptable fur babies. 

No physical shelter means every dog is in an actual family environment, getting extra special cuddles and attention. Each foster family takes in a beautiful little soul into their home, acclimatizing them to people and situations that will help that adoptable dog find their forever home. Many of the dogs that enter into the adoption program are strays, homeless, abandoned and even abused. The love that they receive from the foster family is crucial to let that adoptable dog know they matter and that everything is going to be alright now.  

The mission of the Best Friend Pet Adoption network is to love and care for lost or abused animals, make them know how a loving home environment works and, once that adoptable dog is ready, rehome them into loving, forever home. The expenses of fostering that dog, including medical expenses, food or anything else, are covered by the network.

BFPA runs solely on corporate and individual donations, so if you are not able to adopt or foster right now, please consider making a much needed monetary, tax-deductible donation to BFPA. It feels good to do good. Please do what you can to help the animals in BFPA's care; make a donation in memory of one of your furry friends that has crossed the rainbow bridge or make a donation to make another dog's future as bright as your pet's.  

You can also help the animals by volunteering to help transport the adoptable pets to the vet, foster homes or adoption events, process adoption applications, return calls and e-mail of potential adoptive pawrents, photograph the adoptable pets for the website or help plan adoption events. There is so much work that needs to be done - anything you could do to help would be appreciated more than you know. 

If you are interested in volunteering, fostering or adopting any of the adoptable babies, contact BFPA soon - your new best friend is waiting!

    #1 Company Mill Loop

    Let's take Fido and Fifi for a walk at Company Mill Loop! Bring your best four-legged friend, his non-retractable leash, some water and poop bags to Company Mill Loop for a fun-filled day of trails, fresh air and time with your buddy! The entire loop is 5.8 miles long and takes around 3 hours to complete, so bear that in mind if you (or your furry friend) have mobility issues. Take lots of pit stops and soak up the surrounding landscape, rolling creeks and wildlife.

    #5 Historic Yates Mill County Park

    Everybody in the car- we are headed to nearby Raleigh, North Carolina to check out Historic Yates Mill County Park! Your non-retractable-leashed doggo can join the whole family to explore history. The gristmill still stands on its original 1750 foundation -surviving floods, neglect, war and multiple hurricanes. This is history! The mill has been restored to its former glory and is ready for you and your whole family to travel back in time. The Old Mill is surrounded by a wildlife preserve, so don't forget to take your camera in case of a chance encounter with a beautiful woodland creature!
