Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Davidson community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across North Carolina — and many of them are located near you. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local shelter like Long Trails To Happy Tails Dog Rescue, where Noel 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.

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 Peter S, a Terrier 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.
