Our Newest Snowflake


Walter is the newest addition to the Snowflake Family.  He has been through a lot!  He is feral and FIV positive.  He was discovered in a neighborhood after he had been injured, probably hit by a car.  Neighbors saw him hobbling on 3 legs.  Luckily Walter does not have any broken bones or internal injuries, but his left front leg is badly damaged.  We are giving him pain medicine and time for his leg to hopefully heal.  Walter is used to having his freedom and is now having to shelter in place, so he understands how we feel!  He is not happy and not sure about humans, but does appreciate the constant food.

We are hoping that even if we are not able to save his leg, we can give him a pain-free life in a safe environment.  If you would like to donate to Walter's vet care, you can donate by credit card or mail to PO Box 97594, Raleigh, NC 27624.  

Thank you so much for your consideration- and please stay safe and healthy during these unpredictable times!


Snowflakes of the Month

Nobel and Oscar

Nobel and Oscar are award-winning charmers.  They are  still very much in the kitten-curious stage, and full of adventure waiting to happen.  Looking for some excitement??  These guys will rock your world and promise there will never be a dull moment.  They also have their calm and contemplative side and will help ponder the mysteries of life with you.  They can be adopted together (they’re brothers) or separately.  Plus, Oscar LOVES dogs!

Ways you can help


We are always in need of temporary homes for our animals before they are permanently adopted. We provide access to veterinary care and can supply or reimburse you for food and other pet needs. You provide the space and the TLC.



Snowflake is dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for as many cats and dogs in our area as we can and all donations mean a great deal We are a non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. 

How to donate


The lives of our delightful and deserving animals depend on the generous work of volunteers and we are always looking for good people aged 16 and older interested in helping our animals find caring homes.

More about volunteering


Have you seen a lovable little one you thought deserved better, but you’re not quite ready, or for any reason unable, to adopt? You can still help by sponsoring them until we find them a caring place to call home.
