Cabarrus Pets Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization, was established in 2002 to rescue rehabilitate, and re-home abandoned, abused, sick, and neglected animals in our community. As a foster home based organization we do not have a physical shelter. Each animal is placed in a loving foster home where they can begin to trust humans again. While in our care, we provides all necessary medical treatments including spaying and neutering and vaccines before finding them their carefully screened forever home. 

Cabarrus Pets Society is dedicated to educating our community on responsible pet ownership including the importance of spaying and neutering, vaccinating, and the prevention of heart worm disease.

We put animals first and we encourage everyone to “Adopt Don’t Shop”!

Interested in adopting, our requirements are:

  • You must be at least 21 years old and live in North Carolina, preferably within  75 miles of Concord
  • You must have a secure fenced yard or be committed to multiple daily leash walks in all kinds of weather 
  • Your new pet must be an indoor companion & you CANNOT use or plan to use an electric, in ground or invisible fence.
  • All current pets in your household must be sterilized, current on all shots and primarily indoor companions.
  • To adopt a kitten or puppy under the age of 6 months, all children in the home must be over the age of 6. 
  • You agree to provide good veterinary care including all vaccinations, heart worm and flea/tick preventatives

Completing an application does not obligate you to adopt nor does it guarantee you the dog.  

Visit our "Adoptable Pets" area to view adoptable pets and use the Online Adoption Application link to apply 

Our Dogs, Puppies, Cats and Kittens Have Been:

  • Temperament tested, Micro-chipped, Spayed or Neutered, De-wormed and Vaccinated

If you are taking your pets with you, take these whenever you’re traveling:

1) Interstate and international travel regulations require any pet you bring to have a health certificate from your veterinarian even if you are traveling by car. Learn the requirements for any states you will visit or pass through.

2) All pets in your car should be safely restrained using a harness or carrier & should never be left alone in the car in any weather. Never transport your pet in the bed of a truck.

3) If you’re traveling by air with your pet, talk with your veterinarian  Air travel can put short-nosed dogs at risk.

4) Bring your pet’s food, water, medications, medical records, first aid supplies and a couple of their favorite toys.

Save a Life - Become a Foster Dog Parent!

Fostering prepares dogs for a successful, forever adoption. The added bonus is, you get to play, love and snuggle as many dogs as you want and without the lifelong, financial commitment! 

CPS provides everything you will need to take  care  your  foster dog!!

  • Crates, Gates and Kennels,  Food, bowls, toys, collar, leash, etc.
  • Medications, vaccines, veterinary care,  Training and 24 hour support
  • The animals in our community have never needed more help. This year has seen new challenges and many families have been impacted by COVID-19 and the nationwide shutdown. Many people have lost their jobs along with their financial security and others have lost their home and loved ones. With all the chaos, many families have been faced with re-homing their pets and others have been unable to provide much needed vet care. We have answered the call for help!
  • We have rescued and re-homed many in need and provided vet care for others. This isn't possible without fosters who open their hearts and homes. We are helping them all; from puppies and kittens, young to old, big to small and everything in between. To learn more about fostering visit our " Foster Home " page. If fostering is not right for you please visit our " I Want to Help " for other ways to help.

Need to re-home your pet or a stray

If you need to re-home a stray or your own pet, please fill out this "Surrender Form"  and a volunteer will contact you to discuss our options.

Our Community Foster program provides a way for people who have found a pet, or pet owners who need to re-home their pets to become "one time" foster parents.  If you have found a stray or have a family pet you need to find a new home for, you can be its foster parent with our help. Please visit our " Community Foster " area to learn more. 

If it is a stray, you must notify animal control in your county to let them know you have found an animal.  Animal control and local vets can scan the animal for a microchip and they can provide other options on how you can help.
