Purr Partners Feline Rescue is a 501(c)(3), no-kill, foster-based, 100% all-volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives of cats and kittens in North Carolina — over 4,000 lives saved since 2009.   We rescue cats and kittens from high kill shelters in rural North Carolina. 


All of our cats and kittens are fulling vetted; we test for feline leukemia and FIV,  deworm, treat for fleas, vaccinate, spay or neuter, and microchip before finding these unwanted, helpless animals, permanent loving homes.  


We are self-funded through adoption fees, donations, and fundraising events and have an annual budget of approximately $175,000. 


Adoption events are held every weekend from 11:30 am - 3 pm.  We are proud to be a PetSmart Charities Adoption Partner and manage the PetSmart Adoption Centers in Wake Forest at 11835 Retail Drive and in Raleigh at Six Forks Station, 8825 Six Forks Road, and half-time at Capital Crossings, 2800 East Millbrook Road. 


Ivy may be an older lady, but she can look forward to many more years with the lucky person who chooses to take her home.  Did you know that cats can live upwards of 20 years, so Ivy is only halfway there.  This poor girl has suffered, though.  She was turned in to a shelter with her mouth in a terrible mess.  She must have been in a lot of pain, but as cats are so stoic, she never complained.  We took her to our wonderful vet and found out that her teeth were so badly infected that all but two of them had to be removed.She is a happy girl now and can eat both wet and dry food, and while she was at the vet she had a complete blood workup and is totally healthy.  Ivy is on the smaller side and is a very quiet kitty.  She gets along with all the other cats she lives with but hasn’t ventured downstairs to meet the dogs yet.  Ivy loves to be petted and will cuddle up next to you and purr and purr.  Ivy deserves a home where she will not be neglected but will be taken to the vet regularly and loved and cared for for the rest of her life.Ivy has tested positive for FIV, but it is not contagious to other cats except through deep puncture wounds like those caused in fights by two unneutered males.  It is not transmitted by using the same food and water bowls, litter boxes or toys, and many of us have FIV cats happily living with non-FIV cats in our own homes.  FIV positive cats, with good vet care such as you’d give to any cat, can live a normal life span.For more information or to apply to adopt please go to:

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
