Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Cornelius area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout North Carolina — and many are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Carolina Big Hearts Big Barks Rescue, where Avery the dog is waiting patiently. 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 in appropriate homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 Gabby, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
