This sweet Lab mix was transported from a high-kill shelter in Alabama to CFP thanks to a huge network of volunteers across the states. She had a litter of six puppies who have all found their fur-ever homes, so we are working to find Piper her people now! She’s a sweet dog — we think she is about 14 months of age, very young — that is a petite size; under 40 pounds. She is great on a leash – but will run if give the opportunity so would do best with a fenced yard. Piper is awesome with people and children — very sweet and playful. She loves to cuddle and be near you. Piper is dog selective so would do best as an only dog.





Hi – I’m Lily!! I’m a great size girl – about 40 pounds. Maybe a shepherd/lab mix – but we are guessing – they also are guessing at my age: around 3! I’m I am sweet and silly (that’s me upside down with my foster sister) … I live in an apartment so have fabulous leash manners. I’m house broken and crate trained. I joined Cause for Paws after the Wake County animal control emptied over 30 dogs and me from one house (12 of us came to CFP)! We have our own Facebook page. I do have heartworms, but CFP will pay for my treatment! If you want to meet me, put in an application and my foster will reach out with more info on me – and maybe we can meet!

Ford: CFP Pet of the Month

Meet Ford.

His fosters recognize what an incredible dog he is and have been working with a professional trainer to help him reach his full potential. He is just over 1-yearold and knows how to sit, lay down, wait for his food, come, and drop the ball when playing fetch. Ford is a total lovebug in the house; he likes to snuggle with his fosters and their dog He is dog selective and can be aggressive with dogs he does not like; however, he is living nicely with a female.

He is not at all food aggressive and is very food/treat motivated which has helped with his training. Ford does best out of a crate – he is not a destructive dog, but being crated does stress him out. Ford has some issues with his hips – as is so common with shepherd mixes. The vet sees no medical reason for this and feels he may have been injured at some point and so is now protective of this area.

His fosters are steadily brushing him which is helping with desensitizing his backside, but he does tend to be protective of his hind quarters.

If you would like to meet Ford, please give us an application at cfp-nc.org/adopt.

Adventurous Abbey!

Lennon: CFP Pet of the Month

Meet Presley!


Meet Presley! Her main goal in life is more belly rubs. Second, she loves to snuggle. This 2-year-old is a very happy dog with a huge smile. She loves to go on walks with her canine foster sister and sunbathe in the grass. Presley is a good listener and loves being in her crate. She is working on her relationship with cats, but does well with kids and other dogs. She loves going places and does very well in a car!

She was featured on Bob and the Showgram 

If she is adopted within two months of her radio debut on Aug. 3, she will get a Beginning Pet Kit from The Pet PantryPreseyColl.


Meet Bella!

ZIGGY – adopt a pet

Ziggy (formerly Tristen who was pulled while on an urgent euthanasia list at a rural shelter) is doing great. He is a very smart and loyal boy. He is completely housebroken and will sit next to the door when ready to go out to do his business. He loves to play fetch, and loves all toys. […]

Adopt a pet raleigh- teddy


FullSizeRender (2)This sweet fellow was pulled from a shelter with serious medical conditions – his original people could not afford to get him the needed surgery. However, the kind folks at  Mitchell Mill Animal Hospital provided his surgery for free — and his foster parents have nursed him back to health!!


He is great now and ready to find his fur-ever home. He’s about 11-months-old, is house broken and crate trained! He gets along great with dogs and all people.


If you would like to meet this handsome boy, start with an application at cfp-nc.org/adopt, and we will connect you with his fosters.


Scroll down to see all of his photos and click to watch him play with his foster canine sister, Addie (who graciously loaned Teddy the outfit for the icy day). Please click for more on his wonderful story, including his special daytime place.
