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.

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

Join ARFP for the Human Race!

April 16, 2016 is the 22nd Annual Human Race, a 5k walk/run put on by the Greensboro Volunteer Center to help local charities raise money for their causes. ARFP volunteers have walked in the Human Race every year, since the very beginning — 21 years! And this year is no different.


We need more people to sign up to walk! So far we’ve got 10 people signed up to walk and raise money on behalf of ARFP. We’re hoping to get at least 25, but more would be even better!

This is an important fundraiser for us and goes a long way toward covering the medical bills for the homeless puppies and kittens in our program. Their adoption fees only cover a small portion of their medical costs, so we need fundraisers like the Human Race to help us keep saving homeless pets. Especially with puppy and kitten season just around the corner.

Check out ARFP’s Human Race page to learn more about registering to join us for this great fundraiser or to sponsor one of the walkers on our team.

NSAC Closed Easter Weekend

The Next Step Adoption Center will be closed this Saturday and Sunday, March 26-27, 2016, so our volunteers can spend Easter weekend with their families. We will reopen Wednesday, March 30, 2016, from 5pm – 8pm.

Applications on the Husky/Lab Puppies

We have received an overwhelming amount of interest in the husky/lab litter of pups. We are currently screening applications and returning calls as quickly as we can so please be patient if you have already shown interest. At this time we have an abundance of interest in these pups so please consider looking at other puppies, both with ARFP and at other area rescues and shelters. Thank you for choosing to adopt!
