The Next Step Adoption Center

ARFP’s original Next Step Adoption Center (NSAC) opened on Milner Drive in October 2002. In January 2013, it moved to a larger facility down the street, where it continues to thrive as the largest no-kill adoption center in the area. Three days a week foster parents bring their foster pets to the adoption center for the public to meet.

Featuring a large retail area and front lobby, indoor and outdoor play areas for foster dogs, and an enormous room for both the cats housed at the adoption center and those who stay in foster homes, the NSAC is a wonderful place to visit for both cat and dog lovers — and a great place to find your next furry family member.


Saturday 9am-noon

If you aren’t able to visit during open hours and would like to schedule a time to meet an animal, please consider filling out an adoption application or calling 336-574-9600 and leave a message on the adoptions line. That number is a voicemail only system.
