Purr Partners Feline Rescue is a 501(c)(3), no-kill, foster-based, all-volunteer organization that is dedicated to saving the lives of cats and kittens in North Carolina. Incorporated in 2009 by two friends, four cats, and no budget. These two women realized the need for a "cat only" rescue that worked with rural shelters — where cats routinely lose their lives. Purr Partners was founded to save the lives of those most in jeopardy with little hope of survival. High-kill rural shelters became the focus for Purr Partners, and that is still true today.
From those humble beginnings, the rescue has grown to over a hundred active volunteers and a budget of approximately $175,000. At any given time there are between 100 and 175 cats and kittens in foster care and we have saved over 4,000 lives and rescue more every day.
All our cats and kittens are fulling vetted and tested for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), dewormed, treated for fleas, UTD on vaccines, spayed or neutered, and microchipped before finding these unwanted, helpless animals, permanent loving homes.
We are 100% volunteer-run foster-based rescue - no paid employees and zero overhead, which means that EVERY dollar that we receive goes directly back to support the cats and kittens we rescue. Purr Partners is self-funded through adoption fees, donations, and fundraising events.
