We know our pets

Meet Simon, Valentine, Coriander & More

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Mooresville community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Mooresville and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across North Carolina, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new family member is at Feline Network Rescue, where Coriander the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Simon, an Alaskan Malamute up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
