ANIMAL SHELTER ADOPTIONS - your "furever" friends
Do you want to have a pet of your own to share good times with? Come to our Animal Shelter to find a forever friend that best suits you, your home and your family. Adopt a shelter pet and make him/her a part of your everyday life.
Before you adopt, there are a few things that you should consider such as:
- If you have other pets at home already, will they get along with a new pet?
- Is anyone in your household allergic to animals?
- How will an animal change your lifestyle? Be sure to select a pet that fits your schedule and exercise routine.
We cannot always answer specific questions regarding the pet's personality; however, we will do our very best to provide you with all of the information we have.
We are delighted that you are interested in one of the animals in our care. Please call 252-534-1125 if you are interested in any of these wonderful animals or visit our Animal Shelter Facebook page.
