Pets of the Week

Published 8:02 pm Saturday, June 14, 2014



Those 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

Overcrowded conditions at the Shelter make this the perfect time to take advantage of this opportunity: during the month of June cats and kittens, at the Shelter, will have an adoption fee of $25. This fee includes spaying /neutering, the first round of shots, a microchip and worming, for each feline adopted. This is a reduced fee with the remainder paid by the Humane Society of Beaufort County. Don’t delay! This offer is in effect through June 30. Questions, please call 252-946-1591.


Meet our Queen! She’s all decked out in regal attire with her Tuxedo of jet black, medium-length luscious fur. Pristine white trims her chin, bib, toes and long whiskers. At 18 months, this attractive girl has huge bright eyes and a friendly and gentle nature. Queen will grace the family setting and be a faithful companion and playful friend. Come have an audience with Queen and get to know her in person. She is available through Saturday at the shelter.


Say hi to Kent, our handsome three-month-old, black and tan, Rottweiler-Hound-mix puppy. He’s a friendly, playful, gentle, smart pup who loves people and other dogs. Kent will be the perfect pup to bring into a growing family and have him grow up with the kids. Rottweilers are loyal, companion dogs. Surrendered by his former owners, as they could no longer keep him, this is a perfect chance to scoop him up. Kent will not only be a good dog … Kent will be Super Dog!

He’s available through Saturday at the shelter. Overcrowded conditions at the shelter makes this a great time to come in and adopt a dog or puppy and give it a good forever home.
