Your new best friend is closer than you think!

Welcome to Cougar Pets! We are a local animal rescue group housed on the Central Carolina Community College campus. As part of the Veterinary Medical Technology program, our animals help teach veterinary technician students essential skills that will help future animals.


All of our animals are rescued from shelters, and all are adoptable. In addition, they are up to date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, and micro-chipped. Click on the cat or dog below to get started!

Cougar Pet Spotlight

Come, Sit, Stay!

Do you see a pet you like, but want to meet them first? Make an appointment with our staff and we will set up a Meet and Greet session! 

Meet and Greet sessions are by appointment only.

My name is Buzz. I am a 2-year-old male that loves to play and get treats! I am a super smart boy and a quick learner. I have a hard time making friends with animals, but I am very loyal to my human companions. I can be a little hesitant when meeting new people, but that is nothing a treat cannot fix!

Success! Message received. We will get back with you shortly!

Hi! My name is Tom Petty. I am the most handsome boy around, and boy do I know it. I may be a little taller than the other cats, but that just means there is more of me to love! I like a nice comfy bed and held while you scratch my head. I cannot wait to see what adventures we can come up with!
