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.

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.

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:

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:

Fable’s ready for Thanksgiving!

It might be only February, but Fable the foster kitten is sampling some pumpkin. And by some pumpkin, we mean a couple spoonfuls.

Fable was born in late September 2019. He’s up to date on his vaccines and has been neutered.

Fable lives in a foster home with his sister, Rumour. If you want to meet them, come by the Next Step Adoption Center at 711 Milner Dr. in Greensboro to meet him!

The center is open Wednesday from 5pm-8pm, Saturdays 11am-3pm, and Sundays 1pm-4pm.

You don’t have to bring pumpkin, but Fable won’t complain if you do! 😉
