ARFP’s final three adoption fairs of the year are December 2nd, 9th, and 16th.

Make sure to visit 711 Milner Dr. on one of those Saturdays between 9-noon to meet our adoptable kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs!

What to do if you need help with an animal.

ARFP’s focus is kittens and puppies 12 weeks of age and younger. If you find a kitten or puppy in need of rescue please email Make sure to include pictures and as much information as possible about the animals.

Alternatively, call 336-574-9600 and leave a message on the RESCUE line.

ARFP operates on a foster-home model. Kittens and puppies are placed in foster homes for care and socialization. Foster homes are limited in number, so we can only help as many animals as we have available foster homes.

The Next Step Adoption Center Re-Opens!

That’s right! You can come by non-holiday weekend Saturdays between 9am and Noon to meet adoptable cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies.

Donate to ARFP while shopping at Chewy!

You know you need stuff for your pets — food, toys, beds, cat litter, collars…. The list goes on! And is a great place to get those things.

But did you know that if you shop at Chewy through iGive, you can earn money for ARFP? is a shopping portal that makes donations to the charity of your choice every time you visit select online retailers through the iGive portal.

One of those online retailers is Chewy. You can buy all your pet needs (or buy pet supplies for ARFP!) and iGive will donate 2.4% of your order total (not including tax or shipping charges) to ARFP at no cost to you.

As an added bonus, through April 15, 2021, iGive is doubling their normal donation amount to 4.8%. That’s a lot of money to help homeless pets!

Just follow this link to take part: Pet Food, Products, Supplies at Low Prices – Free Shipping | You will need an iGive account and a account to participate.

Videos of Kittens? Who Could Ask for Anything More?

Two groups of foster kittens have started Youtube channels!

Annabel Lee, born around January 2018, is looking for a forever home. She came to ARFP in October 2020 after having a littler of four kittens and being abandoned in a shopping center in Greensboro, NC.

All four kittens have been adopted! Now Annabel Lee is searching for her new home.

She’s sweet, loves to be petted, and gets along with other cats. Oh, and a fondness for naming her videos after feline versions of Bond films.

Not to be left out, a new group of kittens decided they want a channel, too!

This litter was found in the woods. Despite a lengthy search for the mother, she never returned. The kittens were then scooped up and placed in a foster home where they can get all the attention, love, and food they need.

Not to be outdone, they decided to do a daily chronicle of their life, including some exclusive behind the scenes footage.

Without further ado, The Chronicles of Kitteh!




Ramses would love to take a moment to say, “Hi!”

First, his deets. He’s a gray tabby born on April 13th, 2020. One of four siblings, Ramses is the only one of his brothers and sisters who hasn’t been adopted yet. He’s up-to-date on his shots for his age and is eagerly awaiting his new home.

Ramses wants you to know that he’s a people cat. He loves people, whether that’s sitting in their lap, playing with them, or just sleeping contentedly nearby. He follows his foster parents throughout the house to make sure they know he’s there to help whenever needed. If pressed, he’d say his three most important skills are lap kitty, toy tester, and safety inspector.

One way he helps is to make sure that the brush is in good working order.

Ahhh, a good brushing…

As the only foster in a home with four resident cats, it falls to Ramses to make sure the toys are safe for everyone else. Especially since the resident cats are all older.

Yup. This toy works. On to the next. A kitten’s work is never done!

Ramses also feels it’s very important that the people in his life don’t get hurt, so he makes sure they don’t fall down the stairs.

Pay no attention to the weird cat at the bottom of the stairs.

After a hard day’s work, Ramses does appreciate a good lap to curl up in to nap.

If you think you need a highly skilled people cat like Ramses in your life, head over to our cat page to learn more about adopting from ARFP:

Daphne’s Babies are One Month Old!

It’s hard to believe that sometime late on March 6, 2020 or early on March 7, 2020, Daphne had four little kittens.

They’re growing up fast. They’re playing, using the litter box, and getting plenty of socialization from their foster parents.

They did take some time out of their busy schedule to pose for a family portrait.

L-R Dragon, Wyvern, Falkor, Copper (in middle), Daphne.

And, just like many modern-day children, they have their own blog at:

They also have their own YouTube channel:

How the Adoption Process Works While We’re Closed

During this temporary closure, intake will not stop and our volunteers will continue to work diligently to keep the organization running smoothly.

We will keep you up to date with pictures of our available animals on our website, facebook page, and petfinder.

When you find an animal you’re interested in, fill out an application on our site or call 336-574-9600 and leave a message on our adoptions line.

Our adoptions team will screen applications via the telephone and we will connect puppies and kittens with new homes at the safest time possible.

Interested in Fostering?

If you’re interested in fostering puppies or kittens, please fill out a VOLUNTEER application — not an application for the species you’re interested in fostering.

Once you’ve submitted the form, a volunteer will be in contact as soon as possible.

Please bear in mind that young puppies and kittens are fostered in pairs or triplets to allow for proper socialization.

The volunteer interest form is available here:

Next Step Adoption Center Closure

Next Step Adoption Center Closure

As ARFP embarks on this unknown journey into the world around us, we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily keep our adoption center closed to the public. We did not come to this decision lightly. We love our community and we love your regular visits to our center. This was a crucial decision for us to join the community in shutting down, and we will come to you looking for support more now than ever. During this time we ask that you share any post we make and that you help promote our animals and the organization. Your support is critical and is very much appreciated.

During this temporary closure, intake will not stop and our volunteers will continue to work diligently to keep the organization running smoothly. We will keep you up to date with pictures of our available animals. The adoption team will screen applications via the phone and we will connect puppies and kittens to potential homes at the safest time possible.

Volunteers will check our donation bins daily with hopes that you continue to keep our pantry stocked with dog and cat food. Online monetary donations can be made via our website ( ).

Thank you for supporting ARFP for the last 28 years – we know you will have our back during this roller coaster ride we are all on. Stay safe. Stay healthy. And we will see you soon
