About Us

Lake Norman Humane is comprised of staff and volunteers who are making a difference in the lives’ of animals one pet at a time. We are governed by a volunteer Executive Board of Directors who oversee the strategic plan, mission, and vision of our organization.

On November 1, 2016, Friends of the Animals-Iredell merged with the Humane Society of Iredell to form Lake Norman Humane. Our vision is to build a new facility to better serve the Lake Norman community and surrounding areas by rescuing and rehabilitating more animals and establishing a strong community education center and program.

Lake Norman Humane’s mission is to Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Rehome the pets in need within our community and beyond.

We pride ourselves on being a non-profit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization. Lake Norman Humane does not receive any funding or subsidy from any national organizations, or any local, state, or federal government funding agency. We rely solely on private donations to fulfill our mission.

We work diligently with multiple animal control facilities and rescue organizations to intake animals who might otherwise be euthanized due to over-population. Many of our animals have been surrendered by owners who are no longer able to provide care or have experienced a change in lifestyle or circumstances.  Prior to being placed for adoption, every animal we rescue receives a behavioral assessment, as well as a medical evaluation by a veterinarian.

Our conversational adoption process allows us to understand your wants and needs as potential owners and helps us to recommend pets best suited for your family’s lifestyle. We serve as a lifeline to our community for any questions or concerns that may arise following adoption to support our adopted pets as they transition into their new home.

Lake Norman Humane is located at 2106 Charlotte Hwy, Mooresville NC 28117. We operate from 12:00-6:00pm, Tuesday – Friday and from 12:00-4:00pm on Saturday. We are closed to the public on Sunday and Monday. Please see our Calendar for all of our upcoming events!
