All of our cats and kittens are fulling vetted prior to being adopted. We test for feline leukemia and FIV, deworm, treat for fleas, vaccinate, spay or neuter, and microchip before finding these unwanted, helpless animals, permanent loving homes. We are 100% volunteer-run foster-based rescue – NO paid employees and ZERO overhead, which means that EVERY dollar that we receive goes directly back to support the cats and kittens we rescue. Purr Partners is self-funded through adoption fees, donations, and fundraising events and has an annual budget of approximately $175,000.
One of the benefits of adopting a Purr Partners kitty is that each and every cat and kitten is fostered in one of our loving homes. This means that we get to know each kitty’s personality and their likes and dislikes – do they get along with other cats, like dogs, would they make a good lap cat or are they super active? Each of our cats is extremely well socialized because they live in a home, not in a cage. But this also means that we don’t have a public facility or intake center where you can stop by and visit. In order to meet our cats and kittens, you must attend one of our weekend adoption events or become a preapproved adopter to schedule a private meet and greet session.

Purr Partners Feline Rescue
What happens when Purr Partners rescues a cat from a shelter?
Purr Partners rescues from the high kill shelters in NC. It's our mission to make a better life for as many shelter cats as possible, so that means that our fosters stay full. Cats are pulled from the shelter as soon as we make sure we have a foster to care for each cat. The sad part is that we can't rescue a cat if we have no foster able to accept them. The good news is that as soon as a cat is adopted we have space for another to be rescued.
Our transport volunteers travel sometime quite a distance to bring kitties to us where they are seen by a vet, vaccinated, chipped, and pick up by their foster. The foster then takes the kitty to her/his home where they are cared for. Sometimes this means given medications, wound care, socialized, and loved sometimes for the first time in the kitty's life. When the kitty is spayed or neutered, healthy, and ready to look for a forever home they begin their showings at PetSmart, on the web site, rescue sites, and Face Book.
When an application is received for a cat it is reviewed, the applicant's vet contacted, and the applicant contacted by the cat's foster. Purr Partners does everything they can to make sure we are finding wonderful forever homes for these kitties who deserve a good life and that the cat is a good fit for the applicant. We want these adoptions to be forever.
Purr Partners makes a life time commitment to each rescued cat so we will care for the cat, whatever is needed, until the cat is adopted. After adoption we love to received updates and photos from the cat's new family.
And then we rescue another cat. Until cats are spayed and neutered and not allowed to birth unwanted kitties there will always be more cats needing rescue.
