During the month of June cats and kittens at the Betsy Bailey Nelson Animal Control Facility 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 June 1 through June 30. Questions, please call 252- 946–1591.



Calm, very gentle, affectionate and loving, our Sylvia is a true treasure. This 1-year-old pewter gray and pristine white bi-color is a treat to look at. Her huge, deep gold eyes feature emerald green surrounding the pupils. With a marvelous disposition and beautiful looks, Sylvia will make a wonderful companion and pet in a good forever home. Pay Sylvia a visit — you will be glad you did. She is available through Saturday at the shelter.


Nice, playful and friendly, that’s our King. At one year old, this black Labrador Retriever–mix is handsome with his glistening black coat with a white design on his chest. King came into the shelter as a stray, wearing an underground fence collar, so surely somebody is missing him. Well-mannered and seeming to love attention, King sits on command, loves giving kisses and eating treats. Come pay him a visit, he is available through Saturday at the shelter.
