Mission Statement

The mission of Purr Partners is to help homeless felines find loving, permanent homes through adoption and placement. We believe that all cats have value and deserve a chance to live their lives in a safe and caring home. We further believe that through education and advocacy, there will come a time when there are no more homeless cats, and all individuals and communities will extend kindness and hope to all cats, whether companion animals, strays, or ferals. We support the belief that cats have an intrinsic value beyond their value to humans, and we will be advocates for cats everywhere through whatever means we have available.

What We Do

Purr Partners Feline Rescue is a 501(c)(3), no-kill, foster-based, all-volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives of cats and kittens in Central North Carolina.

Incorporated in 2009 by two friends, four cats, and no budget, these two women realized the need for a “cat only” rescue that worked with rural shelters — where cats routinely lose their lives. Purr Partners was founded to save the lives of those most in jeopardy with little hope of survival. High-kill rural shelters became the focus for Purr Partners, and that is still true today. From those humble beginnings, the rescue has grown to over a hundred active volunteers and a budget of approximately $175,000. Purr Partners is self-funded through adoption fees, donations, and fundraising events. We rely on the support of the community, and with zero paid employees and little overhead, nearly every dollar we receive goes directly back to support the cats and kittens we rescue. At any given time, there are between 100 and 150 cats and kittens in foster care, and we have saved over 4,000 lives and rescue more every day.

All of our adoptable cats and kittens are fulling vetted and tested for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), dewormed, treated for fleas, UTD on vaccines, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. Our volunteers work diligently to find these unwanted animals, permanent loving forever homes.

As a foster-based rescue, our cats live in a house with a family and not in a cage. Our cats and kittens are incredibly well-socialized as a result. We know their personalities and their likes and dislikes. Are they gentle? Would it be the right choice for families with young children? Do they get along with other cats, or would they be better as your one and only? Are they a bonafide lap-cat? What about dogs? Our adoption counselors will help you make the best choice to meet your objectives in choosing your next pet.

Being foster-based also means that we don’t have a public facility or where you can stop by and visit. To meet our cats and kittens, you must become a pre-approved adopter to schedule a private meet and greet session or attend one of our weekend adoption events at PetSmart.Β We are proud to be a PetSmart Charities Adoption Partner and manage the PetSmart Adoption Centers in Wake Forest at 11835 Retail Drive and in Raleigh at Six Forks Station, 8825 Six Forks Road, and half-time at Capital Crossings, 2800 East Millbrook Road. Adoption events are held every weekend from 11:30 am – 3 pm.

We require an approved adoption application for every adoption, click hereΒ to complete the form and allow two business days for processing. One of our adoption counselors will contact you, and you’ll be on your way to meeting your new BFF!

Azalie is a ball of energy who loves to play. She has the look of not a care in the world, but rattle a bag and she comes running! Azalia loves to gently paw you for pets. Can be a laid-back kitty but also a little curious at times. Loves her dog friends, but other cats not so much. Sitting on the couch is where she likes to be. πŸ›‹πŸ’•πŸˆ

🐱 Just a reminder that if you are interested in adoption a kitty from Purr Partners read the adoption policies and fill out an application. Meets are being scheduled with approved adopters and kitties are being adopted every day.
Approved adopters should let their application processor know if they are interested in any kitty and she will get you in touch with the foster if the kitty is available.
More kitties being rescued every day too. Fosters are busy getting them ready for adoption so watch the web site for new additions.
Until they all have a home.πŸ’•πŸΎπŸˆ

Tigger is a gorgeous cat with a big heart for people. πŸˆπŸ’•
This 9 1/2yr old boy loves to lay around the house but also play with a teaser toy, with random bursts of energy - chasing sometimes only his shadow! He still has lots of life left to enjoy since cat can live to be 18-20 yrs old.
Tigger loves to be by your side, and pets are always welcome. He would rather be the only animal roaming the house but loves his humans. A window is his favorite place to be in the house, just enjoying watching the outside life go by.
If you love to brush a kitty and have a loyal companion maybe you should meet Tigger. πŸˆπŸΎπŸ’•

It is finally happening after 2525 days in foster care (30 days shy of 7 years) πŸ’œSangria❀️is getting adopted πŸ’—
Sangria was born in foster care and was the smallest in her litter. All her litter mates were adopted but this sweet kitty has had one mysterious ailment after another her whole life, possibly an autoimmune condition, which kept her from being adopted. Her foster has loved and cared for her all these years but recently Sangria has been in a home as a foster to adopt kitty where the new foster has fallen in love with this calico beauty with the big green eyes and has adopted her. All of Purr Partners is tearfully thrilled and happy for Sangria to finally find her forever home where she will continue to be loved for the rest of her life.
We all wish you the best loved life Sangria! πŸ’•πŸΎπŸ±

Until they all have a home. πŸ’•

Meet beautiful Araminta 🐾🐈 1 1/2 yrs old
Araminta is a Maine Coon mix with medium-striped fur that is silky soft. This sweet girl and her 3 kittens were outside being fed until they were rescued and came to their foster home. Since her kittens have been adopted, Araminta has grown into a gentle, curious girl who loves to get sunshine on her foster's screened in porch, to climb the cat tower, and to seek out her foster's cat and even boldly go up to Golden Retrievers at her foster home!
🐈 Araminta comes running when it's time to eat and says a 'meow' when she sees an opportunity to get petted! She is a loving girl who has thrived in foster care with lots of patience as she adjusted to being an indoor cat in a safe, warm environment. Don't let her slowly flicking tail fool you - she has never hissed and is a quiet girl. Araminta would do well in a home by herself, or with a cat or dog.
You can find the adoption policies and application at the Purr Partners web site posted in the comments. πŸˆπŸΎπŸ’•
