PHOTOS: Pets of the Week | Local News

Are you ready for a new pet in your life? All of these animals are available for adoption at Iredell County Animal Services, 430 Bristol Drive, Statesville.

All of this week’s pets have been spayed or neutered and are looking for their forever homes. Fee for dogs is $80 unless otherwise specified. Cat adoptions are $65 unless otherwise specified. Come meet them.

Adoption hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays, except holidays. Call 704-878-5424 for more information.

To become a volunteer, foster owner or both, visit, call the volunteer coordinator at 704-878-5424, ext. 3507, or drop by the shelter for application from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Fostering is a great way to get dogs out of the shelter for a reprieve and a great opportunity to put them in front of potential adopters they might not see during their stay.

The “Books & Buddies” reading program is now underway. No appointment is necessary. Reading hours are 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Bring your own book or borrow one from the shelter and grab a stool. Participants who need hours for school or community service will need to track them on their own. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Due to space, only one reader at a time is allowed in the chat room.
