Will you gift homeless cats and dogs the chance for life, love and happiness?
With a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE thanks to Chris Leith Kia of Wake Forest, our rescue is holding its first-ever car raffle for a cause. The Grand Prize is a 2017 Kia Optima LX. There will be three runner-up cash prizes in the amounts of $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000 up for grabs as well! By purchasing a raffle ticket at https://go.rallyup.
Our mission is to give homeless pets a new chance at life through our in-home dog and cat fostering program, and to reduce the homeless pet population (future shelter residents) through the combined efforts of our spay and neuter program, our Cats for Hire program, and our new school-based Homeless Pet Clubs partnerships.
Our volunteers have been hard at work in fulfilling this mission. In 2017 to date, we have taken in over 600 cats & dogs and adopted out over 450. We also facilitated the transport of 107 dogs to rescues in the north and sent out 106 spay/neuter vouchers.
We will have our very own adoption shop in the fabulous North Hills Shopping Center during the prime of the holiday season. What a wonderful holiday it will be if we can find furever homes for our homeless pets. Each dog, cat, kitten, and puppy in our care is wishing for the day when they are loved and cherished, what better time than the holidays to bring a new family member into your life. Please visit our shop to meet our wonderful adoptable pets. In addition to hosting adoption events we will also have other fun holiday related activities at the shop. The shop will open on Nov 18 and close Dec 17. We will be open on the weekends and Black Friday.

We have had one of the most expensive medical years in 2017 but we are still forging ahead thanks to wonderful donors.
Thank you to everyone who helped get Tessa the treatment she needs!
Goldie needs our help to raise money for her heartworm treatment, teeth extractions, and cancerous tumor removal!
This sweet gal was found in an abandoned house that was condemned and due to be demolished. Before knocking the place down they checked and found her and several other dogs inside. Animal control picked her and the others up, and she entered the shelter severely underweight at just 45lbs. Her age is estimated at 5 years old and she tested heartworm positive. Her front teeth were all worn down to nothing with the roots exposed, 2 of her canines were broken with roots showing, most likely from eating trash and tearing open canned food.
Luckily we were able to get her teeth removed and during her spay came across some cancerous tumors that had to be removed! She was covered in fleas with a skin infection but after some time in her loving foster home she is doing so much better! Goldie has come a long way but still has a ways to go.
Now that she has had a constant supply of food for a few weeks, we estimate she weighs about 65 pounds. She is house trained, crate trained, and can't wait to get healthy again so she can go off to her forever home!
This is our sweet Tessa. She is a foster dog with Paws for Life Animal Rescue here in NC. She found herself stuck at the Franklin County Shelter with two siblings left because the owner did not want to care for them anymore. Her kind eyes drew her foster in and even though she was heartworm positive the foster had to take her into her home and get her well.
The goal is to find her a wonderful forever family to match her amazing spirit. Tessa is roughly age 5. We think she is a Brittany mixed with sheltie. She is 55lbs but could stand to drop 10-15!
She is a lazy gal. She loves to lounge on the couch or floor. She is a people dog and wants to please, kiss, and follow you around! She loves dogs and cats alike. She had lived with 2 male dogs in her previous life. She lives with a male and female dog and 3 cats in her foster home.
Can you help us to get her heartworm free so we can get her into her forever home? HW treatment sucks the rescue funds right down (along with the many other medical surgical cases we face). Paws for Life does not shy away from dogs with medical needs because we know we are their best chance at survival. We rely on your donations to save lives as we are 100% non profit / 100% volunteer and 100% foster system based.
