Purr Partners, North Wake Animal Hospital, Carolinas Collision Centers and Capital Automotive Group, would like to thank all of those who donated, helped collect supplies and spread the word for the #PurrforPets campaign supporting hurricane victims in Texas and Florida! With the contributions of the greater Wake Forest community we were able to collect much needed supplies and monetary support. Nearly $3000 was send to Wags to Whiskers of Texas, a sister rescue to Purr Partners. And two enormous truckloads of pet supplies are on their way to Texas and Florida!
Lawanna Johnson, Founder and Director of Purr Partners said, “It is heartbreaking to see the images of the animals — homeless, separated from their owners, afraid and fighting for their lives. We need to carry out our mission and do everything possible to ensure their well being and safe placement.”
Purr Partners is pleased to announce that nearly $3000 was raised to benefit Wags to Whiskers of Texas!

Of those donations received, a six-year-old Wake Forest resident, animal lover and budding activist — who wishes to remain anonymous — chose to forgo gifts at his 6th birthday party. Instead he asked friends and family to #PURRforPets by donating money and supplies to the animals affected by hurricanes #Irma and #Harvey. This young man is leading the way in reclaiming the meaning of gift giving! He has a bright future ahead and is a shining example to us all! Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these animals!
Supplies, Supplies and more Supplies!

10. Older cats are calmer.
9. Their personalities are well developed and a good match is easier to make.
8. There’s no question as to how big they will get.
7. They are less likely to get into mischief around the house.
6. They need less attention than young kittens, but can still be quite playful.
5. They still make strong bonds with their new families.
4. Many don’t mind if they are left alone while you are at work or school.
3. Cats often live 15 or even 20 years, so an 8 year old cat is only middle-aged and has many years of affection left to give.
2. These wonderful loving kitties deserve a second chance.
And the #1 reason to adopt an adult cat is…kittens aren’t kittens forever!
Why should you consider adopting a teenage kitten? Teen felines are the best of both worlds – they still have the youthful spunk of kittens along with more fully developed personalities. When adopting a teen, you can get a much better idea of whether a cat will grow up to be a lap cat, an independent investigator, a playful cat who will never outgrow toys, and so on. This way you still get the cute baby animal and a much better idea of how you can expect him or her to mature and behave throughout the rest of their adult life of 15 to 20 years.
So go ahead and visit one of the adoption centers at area Petsmart’s (Wake Forest, Six Forks and Strickland or Capital and Millbrook) to find that perfect kitty!
Welcome to our new Purr Partners Website. We are the same Purr Partners; we just gave our site a new look! Our mission is to help homeless felines find loving homes through adoption and placement. Here at Purr Partners, we believe that every cat has value and deserves a loving home. It is through education, advocacy and support that we pursue our goal of no more homeless cats. We can not pursue this goal without your help. Please consider helping us support our cause either by adopting, volunteering or by making a donation. Please contact us with any questions or email email@example.com.
