Davidson Area Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Snickers, Snowball, Darling & More

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Davidson…

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Davidson community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around Davidson are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across North Carolina, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider looking around at a local shelter like Carolina Big Hearts Big Barks Rescue, where Tramp 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 Snickers, a Labrador Retriever 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.
