Come see us!
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, 100% volunteer managed organization we do not have a physical shelter. Each animal we rescue is placed in a loving foster home where they can begin to trust humans again. While in foster care, Cabarrus Pets Society provides all necessary medical treatments including spaying and neutering, vaccines, and surgery before finding them their well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. With no physical shelter, we operate primarily through adoption events in our community and online databases. Our website has our current adoption event calendar.
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”!
*** Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions all scheduled events have been cancelled.***

Whether you take your pets with you or leave them behind, take these precautions to safeguard them whenever you’re traveling:
1) Interstate and international travel regulations require any pet you bring with you 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, and schedule an appointment with your veterinarian to get the needed certificate within the time frames required by those states.
2) Pets in vehicles should always be safely restrained and should never be left alone in the car in any weather. Proper restraint means using a secure harness or a carrier, placed in a location clear of airbags. Never transport your pet in the bed of a truck.
3) If you’re traveling by air and considering bringing your pet with you, talk with your veterinarian first. Air travel can put some pets at risk, especially short-nosed dogs. Your veterinarian is the best person to advise you regarding your own pet’s ability to travel.
4) Pack for your pet, as well as yourself, if you’re going to travel together. In addition to your pet’s food, a source of frequent access to water and medications, this should also include copies of their medical records, information to help identify your pet if it becomes lost, first aid supplies, toys, blankets and any other items that might help with the change.
Talk with your veterinarian to find out how best to protect your pet from canine flu and other contagious diseases, and to make sure your pet is up-to-date on their vaccines.

How things work at Cabarrus Pets Society
Cabarrus Pets Society is staffed by volunteers who have a passion for helping animals. Each of our animals receives medical screening, temperament testing, vaccinations, and spay/neuter through our local veterinarians and our own medical staff . All of our animals live with foster families while we search for their perfect home with their forever families. The foster families bring the animals to our various events through out the year. The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an online adoption application. It's free to fill one out.

Need to re-home your pet or a stray
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.
If it is a stray, you must notify animal control in your county to let them know you have found the dog. You should also post on "lost and found pets" social media pages, bring the animal to a vet to be scanned for a microchip, post flyers in your area, and look on petfinder.com or craigslist.com to see if anyone is looking for the dog or cat. Don't post photos or give full details and require that people provide proof of ownership to claim the pet.
Please visit our " Community Foster " area to learn more. If you need to re-home a stray or your own pet, please fill out this "Surrender Form" and a volunteer will contact you within 48 hours to discuss your options.
