I would like to adopt. What is the process?

Thank you for choosing adoption!  To begin the adoption process, we recommend visiting our website at https://www.onslowcountync.gov/186/Animals to view our currently adoptable animals. Interested in adopting? Click on the photo of the desired animal and select "I am interested in this animal" to access and submit an online application. If you are interested in multiple animals, you only need submit one application. Appointments for meet and greets are strongly suggested. Once you have submitted an application, please call 910-937-1164 after 8:00am Tuesday - Friday and after 10:00am Saturday to schedule an appointment. Adoption appointments are available between 12:00pm and 3:300pm Tuesday - Friday and 10:30am to 3:30pm Saturday. During your appointment, you will be given time to interact with our animals to find the perfect fit. Staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have and try to assist you in finding a good match. Once you have selected your new furry family member, we will need you to complete an adoption contract. Cash and cards are accepted for adoption fee payment, and a valid drivers license/military ID is required. Adopters must be at least 18 years of age. Adoption fee for dogs over 6 months is $140 and includes core vaccinations, 30-day flea & tick treatment, basic dewormer, heartworm test, spay/neuter and microchip. Puppies under 6 months are $195. All cat/kitten adoptions are $50 and include core vaccinations, 30-day flea & tick treatment, basic dewormer, spay/neuter and microchip. Once the contract is complete, you may bring your new friend home!
