Found Pets

If you have found a stray pet, and are unable to bring it to the humane society, you can call Animal Control at:
Carteret County Animal Control

Bringing in the pet yourself

If you would like, you can bring the animal to CCHC yourself. However, keep in mind, many stray animals can be injured, scared, or show aggressive behavior. If you feel unsure of bringing a stray animal into your home or vehicle, please call Animal Control. CCHS does not provide field services; we cannot pick up the animal.

In many instances, the lost animal is friendly and can be easily transported to CCHS. Once the animal reaches CCHS, it will be held for a mandated period to allow owners time to find and reclaim their pets After this time, the animals are placed up for adoption.
