Foster – Help Save a Life

2PawsUp is always in need of loving fosters for our rescued cats and dogs. It’s very simple.

First, fill out an online foster application completely. One of our board members will be in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know if your application has been approved. At that time we will get you set up with your very own foster animal to nurture and care for in your own home.

We always provide all of the necessary vet care, and provide food donations when available. We will provide everything you need to know in our foster packet, which you will receive when you begin fostering.

Sounds simple, right? That’s because it is. Please hurry and fill out your foster application today.

There’s a furry little one waiting for you!


2PawsUp rescues cats and dogs from high kill shelters all over NC. We focus on those animals who are literally on “death row” at our local shelters. We always have a great variety of cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies looking for their forever homes! Browse through our available cats and dogs, read their bios, and check out some great pictures!

If you see an animal you’re interested in, you can fill out an adoption application and one of our board members will begin the approval process as soon as possible. Sometimes we may be able to approve an application within hours, but it may take up to 4-6 days. You will hear from us as soon as we are finished!

If you have a question about a particular animal, you may email us directly through our contact page. So go ahead, visit our Adoptions page to start the search; we’re sure you’ll find your newest family member!


To donate to our general fund used for medical care and supplies for our animals, please follow our Paypal link below. But remember, there are other ways to help!
