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 Genie. I am a 3 year old female that would love to be your new best friend! I enjoy the company of people, but do not like to share attention with other dogs or cats.  I am very sweet and love to run, play, and cuddle. I would love to find my furever snuggle buddy!

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! 



NOTE: As a USDA regulated facility, we are closed to the general public and non-colony animals. Meet and Greet sessions are by appointment only! While we love all animals, we request that only people attend Meet and Greet sessions.


My name is Sarabi. I am a sweet, 3 year old female that is looking for my furever home. I have a lot of fun chasing toy mice. I also enjoy being pet by everyone! I would love to find my furever snuggle buddy!
