Ready to adopt a pet or learn about discounted veterinary care? Visit the Animal Protection Society of Durham.
ARK is not a shelter. All cats and kittens are placed in volunteer foster homes until they are ready for adoption. During this time, animals are socialized, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Adoptions are done locally through word of mouth and additionally by participating in the Petsmart "Luv a Pet" Adoption Centres at the Whiby stores, as well as several Pet Valu, Paulmacs Pets and Global Pet Foods stores. Each year ARK finds homes for over 1,000 cats and kittens.
Serve as a KITTEN or CAT, PUPPY or DOG FOSTER PARENT. We can't intake new animals without foster homes to welcome them. IAR provides all food, medical care, and extensive training for fosters families. Any personal pets in home must be spay/neutered, current on vaccines, and FeLV negative (cats). Must be willing to attend adoption events in Durham and Chapel Hill and to transport animals to our clinic facilities in Durham.

Carolina Pet Rescue consists of a series of foster homes, and as such, does not have a central facility. If you would like to visit with one of our available pets, please follow the procedures outlined above. Also keep an eye on our news section, for future Adoptathon dates. Adoptathons are a great opportunity to visit with multiple pets in a single location! DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Some folks who went to the Animal Protection Society of Durham to adopt a pet Wednesday left empty-handed, because all the available pets had already been adopted.
