Here are the top three stories in Mooresville today:

  1. Piedmont Animal Rescue in Mooresville was forced to close, reportedly due to a lack of funding. According to a Fox46.com article, “(Rescue) leaders cited a significant increase in animal abandonment and a drastic decrease in adoptions over the summer months due to the holidays. The center also cited the economic uncertainty as the reason for declining donations at the moment. The nonprofit relief center said the closure is temporary and is closed until further notice. Donations can be made on the relief center website. “(Fox46.com)
  2. According to an article on Benzinger, “this year the The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts another storm resumption. In addition to the costly damage and devastation that hurricanes leave behind, the wrecks caused by these natural disasters moves a host of animals and parasites. Needing food and shelter, rodents, ants, cockroaches, spiders and mosquitoes try to take refuge in damaged and damp houses, as well as in backyards with standing water. EarthKind®maker of Naturally Smarter® herbal pest control products, provides guidelines on preparing homes for displaced critters during this hurricane season.” (Benzinga)
