About Us

Cause for Paws of North Carolina is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to leading the development of sensitivity and responsibility for non-human animals in our communities and neighborhoods. We protect, nurture, and find homes for unwanted or displaced canines and felines.

Watch mamma Storm and her litter! ALL of our stars are for adoption — although we keep litters together for 8-weeks.


Donating to Cause for Paws will directly help local dogs and cats in the Triangle. You can help us with donations of pet supplies for our foster animals or consider making a donation of gently used items to one of our four thrift stores!


Many stray and abused animals arrive at local shelters every day. Volunteering your time with Cause for Paws will help us pull from very full shelters as well as taking in owner surrendered animals. We place dogs and puppies in private fosters homes where they are loved and kept safe while we find their fur-ever homes.


Cause for Paws will help you find a new dog or cat from one of North Carolina’s shelters. We also attempt to place owner surrendered or stray animals into CFP foster homes. As a foster, CFP will provide you with supplies and support (plus medical care for your foster animal including monthly heartworm and flea preventative.) As a foster, you work with your dog or pup and help it prepare to meet it’s fur-ever people.
