 It's raining cats, dogs, puppies and kittens!!!! PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS so folks in rescue and at the shelters have less animals to take care of. CONSIDER A RESCUE DOG INSTEAD OF BUYING FROM A BREEDER OR A PET STORE. THERE ARE SO MANY WONDERFUL ANIMALS AVAILABLE THROUGH RESCUE GROUPS.

Who We Are

Friends for Animals - The Humane Society of Burke County (BCFFA) is dedicated to saving the lives of treatable and adoptable animals by providing care and housing; adoption services; humane education; and by promoting a community spay and neuter solution.

Adopting a Friend

All animals adopted from BCFFA have up-to-date, age-appropriate vaccinations including rabies, have been wormed, and have been spayed or neutered. Each adopted pet is given a bag of Hill's Science Diet food to take home with him/her.

Sponsor A Pet

If you cannot have an animal in your home but would like to help one, consider sponsoring. You can sponsor one of our lifetime sanctuary residents by by sending $25.00 a month to BCFFA in support of their care. To view our pets that need sponsoring, see our list of available pets.



Volunteers are always welcome! Call our office at 828-433-1115 or come to our Adoption Center at 417 Kirksey Drive, Morganton, NC (next to the National Guard Armory) to see how you can help! Our staff will be happy to answer all your questions. Currently we are in need of volunteers to greet the public and answer our telephones. We also need people who will help at our fundraisers.


Friends for Animals is a non-profit organization. We receive NO federal, state or local government funding. We rely on donations from the public, monies from fundraiser activities and grants to keep our shelter open. Donations are 100% tax deductible and can be sent to BCFFA, P.O. BOX 1884, MORGANTON, NC 28680.
