Charles and Alecia Cole will open Cole’s Cat and Dog Rescue and Pet Supplies in Statesville, NC on West Broad Street where their previous pet store, Elysian Echo Pet Center, was located.
After operating Elysian Echo for 41 years, the couple renovated the storefront in order to get a potential tenant. But soon, the Coles began to miss the pet store. Alecia said her husband came into their apartment above the store one day and announced that they were opening the pet store again.
The Coles have set up different adoption areas in the center to help socialize the animals and give potential owners a chance to play and interact with them before filling out the paperwork. And in an effort to avoid impulse purchases by potential customers, there will be a waiting time between the purchase and taking the animal home. If you would like to contact the Coles, please call (704) 872-3951
