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! 




My name is Primrose. I am a 6-year-old female that loves to play and cuddle! I am very laid back and make friends easily with cats, but am unsure around dogs. I am very sweet and love to be loved, but also know how to be independent.

Ah, hello! I’m Hobbes! If you see a big bushy tail coming around the corner, that's me! I like to take some time before I call people my friend, but with some treats and a little good old-fashioned rubs, I'll be your new bestie! My favorite thing is showing my humans how much I love them by giving them big kisses on the nose right after we play a game of chase the squeaky toy. Looking for a home to call my own!
