Success Stories

Our Number One goal is the successful adoption of the animals that we receive here at the Shelter and we love receiving updates from their new families. Below are just a few of our successful adoptions and stories!


Disney was around 1 1/2 years old when he arrived at the Carteret County Humane Society and Animal Shelter. He was emaciated and had been tied to a tree his entire life. He was so happy when he arrived at the animal shelter, he was finally free! Disney was 20 lbs underweight and full of energy, had never walked on a leash and had very little human interaction. After 18 months at the Carteret County Humane Society, he went to a special home where he is very loved and spoiled today! It was a special day as he was a volunteer and staff favorite!
