Join us for a New Volunteer Orientation

We hold New Volunteer Orientations on the 2nd Saturday of every month for anyone interested in learning more about what we do. You'll learn about fostering and the many other ways you can help homeless and less fortunate animals in the Triangle.

Next Orientation: May 9th @ 11am
Please RSVP to for directions if you plan to attend.

Forever Homes

Congratulations to Billy, Jenna, Moose, Sweet Ruby, Strudel, Oso, Thimble, Sequin, Stitch, Buttons, Fever, Mr. Romeo, Zeek, Zorro, Dakota (Kody), Tia, Willow Bug, Lotus, Wallace, and Hodor for finding their forever homes! Can you find a place in your heart for one of our other IAR animals?

Did You Know: Egyptians really respected their cats! They worshiped them as gods, and anyone caught hunting or mistreating them in any way was put to death.
