Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Mooresville community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Mooresville have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across North Carolina — many of whom are located near you. In the search for your new family pet, consider starting at a local shelter like Forever Home Canine Rescue, where Mitzi 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, meet Butler, a German Shepherd Dog mix up for adoption. 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.
