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!

My name is Jude Paw. I am 1 year old and I am so much fun!  I love to go on walks and play with both my furry friends and human friends! Squeaky toys are my favorite! After a long day of playing and learning need tricks and commands, I love to cuddle up and snooze! I cannot wait to find my furever home!

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 Lois. I am a playful, 4 year old female that is looking for my furever home. I have a lot of fun running after treats and playing in cardboard boxes! I would do best as an only pet. I would love to find my furever human!
