Hi I’m Otis! I love being around my people … whether it’s actively playing or quietly watching TV while I chew a toy. I know how to fetch — and my fosters are pretty sure I’d make a great running partner!  I HAVE to have a toy in my mouth! I’ll come out of my kennel, grab a toy and run through the house wagging my tail. I will take my toy outside to go potty and bring it back in. Toys make me SO happy!

Not sure what ‘pet of the month’ means, but I am excited that I got to wear the donation bin at an adoption event!! I’m very gentle with kids and people so they let me walk around a mall while people put cash in my vest! I am perfectly healthy, but when I came to CFP, I was very underweight and had lots of skin issues.

I love other dogs – but please don’t let them get up on my face. Respect!! I’d do best with a large female sister – or an any only dog.

I recently turned 1 but I’m pretty chill for a puppy but don’t get me wrong: I have an active side! I have great leash manners and am very polite at home. I would do best in a home with a fence as I love the grass and hanging outside on pretty days.

To meet me, apply at cfp-nc.org/adopt and my foster mom will be in touch!

Harper: Everyone’s Sweetheart


Harper is in love with all people. The more the better! This gal is about 3; she does well with kids and in fact loves the attention. She gets along with most dogs with a proper introduction. She would be OK with cats, just ignores them mostly. She can stay in her crate quietly, but loves to be part of the action. She plays well with the foster’s dog, but prefers to be with her humans.

Rambo Pet of the Month

Hello I’m Rambo! I am a big 1-year-old puppy currently at foster boot camp where I’m trying to be more active, eat healthy food, and learn basic manners. I’m pretty smart and love the toys that hide treats inside since I’m very treat-motivated! I love chasing tennis balls and wrestling with my foster brother Milo. We wrestle a good bit, but then we take great naps, too. I don’t love my crate, but I’ll go in there after some bribery! We think a family with older children would be best for me, since I don’t realize how big and strong I am yet! I am probably 10-15 pounds heavier than I should be, so my foster family has me on a diet and gives me lots of exercise. I would love a family that is dedicated to my training, exercises me physically (and mentally) and loves a good cuddle. I love taking walks and I’m very good on a leash. I also get along with all the dogs I meet. I’m ready to meet my family and be the best dog I can be! To learn more about Rambo please apply at cfp-nc.org/adopt


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!
