Make appointment now to“Fix‘m in February.”

During the month of February our local veterinarian hospitals will conduct spaying and neutering procedures at reduced rates for cats and dogs.

The spay and neuter clinics will be conducted Feb. 2 through Feb. 28.

In addition to the reduced rates, the Humane Society of Beaufort County will give financial assistance where necessary. Offer is open to residents of Beaufort County; for more information, call 252-946-1591.

Our Evie, is elegant, graceful, statuesque and well-dressed in her silky, lustrous as onyx, black coat. With a twinkle of a star on her chest and huge golden eyes, she’s a gem of a cat. At 2 years old, she is calm, affectionate, curious, playful and sweet. Evie is very much in need of a good forever home and she, in return, will reward you with unconditional love and companionship. Evie is available through Saturday at the shelter.


Leo is our 6-month-old, German Spitz–mix puppy. He’s handsome in his white/buff colored coat, warm brown eyes and a trim weight of 26 pounds. Leo is trainable, friendly, affectionate, calm and playful. He gets along with kids and other dogs, but please, this sensitive lad is afraid of gunshots and loud noises. Leo would love to be your lap dog and best buddy in your good forever home. Leo is available through Saturday at the shelter.
