PETS OF THE WEEK_131006_WEBThose interested in adopting a pet should inquire at the Betsy Bailey Nelson Animal Control Facility, 3931 U.S. Highway 264 East, from 1 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturdays. Because of overcrowded conditions, the animals listed are only available as indicated.


All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. To see more animals available for adoption, visit, visit ENC Shelter Dogs and ENC Shelter Cats on Facebook or call 252-946-4517 for more information. The Humane Society of Beaufort County can also be found on Facebook at


During the month of October dogs and puppies at the Shelter will have an adoption fee of $40 each. This fee includes spaying /neutering, the first round of shots, a microchip and worming, for each dog adopted. This is a reduced fee with the remainder paid by the Humane Society of Beaufort County.




Say hi to Tucker, a Retriever-mix, 10-month-old juvenile dog. His short coat is tan with white markings and his handsome face shows an attractive pattern. His personality is friendly, attentive and he LOVES tummy rubs. Also with Tucker, but not photographed, is, Nash, an Australian Shepherd mix, 10-month-old juvenile dog. Nash’s coat is tan and white, and a sprinkling of freckles cascade over his sweet face.  Each dog’s adoption cost is $40, the reduced rate for October. Tucker and Nash are available through Saturday.




Rub my belly, hug me, love me, listen to me purr, watch me roll over — all I need is you to love me forever. Meet Chance, our gorgeous, 3-year-old, Tabby love bug.  Chance has a lush shorthair coat of dark chocolate and gold. His huge almond shaped, golden eyes will melt your heart. He has white socks on his back legs and snowshoes on his front paws. You will not find a more loving, affectionate and sweet cat, anywhere. Chance will do well in any home environment and he is available through Saturday.
