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 it is only through education and advocacy that 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 North Carolina — over 3,500 lives saved since 2009. We rescue cats and kittens from high kill shelters in rural North Carolina. All of our cats and kittens are fulling vetted; 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 self-funded through adoption fees, donations, and fundraising events and have 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.
Adoption events are held every weekend from 11:30 am – 3 pm. 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.
