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.


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 tax-dedutible donation of gently used items to one of our three thrift stores!


From helping with adoption events and transporting animals — to helping with administrative tasks and social media or in one of our three thrift stores — it is our amazing Volunteer foundation that keeps us going! Click to volunteer with Cause for Paws.


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.
