Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Mooresville are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

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 a new fur child, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Forgotten Now Family Rescue, where Chimichonka! 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Moka, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
