Paws4ever rescues cats and dogs from our local county shelters and provides them with quality care in our Adoption Center for as long as it takes to find their forever homes.
The animals in our Adoption Center receive veterinary care, personal attention, behavioral and emotional support, training, and enrichment opportunities. We believe in supporting pets and people throughout every stage of their relationship together. That is why we make lifetime promises to every pet we rescue and offer follow-up support, training opportunities, and education for adopters.
We are not a public shelter. Our limited-admission Adoption Center focuses primarily on rescuing the pets who are in great need at our local county shelters. As space allows, we can accept owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis.
Paws4ever is an independent nonprofit organization and we rely entirely on modest program income and generous contributions from the public to rescue and care for animals. Please support Paws4ever – we make friends for life!
Temporary Change in Hours:
In order to mitigate the risks associated with COVID-19, visits to the Paws4ever Adoption Center will be by appointment only. If you have seen a pet on our website that you are interested in adopting, please call the Adoption Center at 919.241.8438 ext. 103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
