Pets of the Week: March 26-27, 2016

Published 6:45 pm Friday, March 25, 2016




This small, 16-pound, gray/white, approximately 2-year-old Shih Tzu-mix has had a rough life until he was taken in by Beaufort County Animal Control. Bingey was living in extremely deplorable conditions and his long, matted coat was visual proof.  Now shaved and bathed he’s looking good and feeling better. His disposition is calm and sweet. Bingey needs to be an inside dog with owner(s) who will give him tender loving care, regular grooming and attention in a good forever home. He’s already neutered — take him right home after paying his adoption fee of $20. He’s available through Saturday at the shelter.


Sleek, silky and stunning in a shorthair coat of jet black with a sparkling white star on her chest, that’s our beautiful Natasha. With a personality matching her good looks, this 2-year-old is a friendly girl, liking attention, sweet talk and petting. Her calm demeanor will make her a true asset in a variety of good forever home settings.  Come meet Natasha and you will see what a great cat she is. She’s available through Saturday at the shelter.

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, ENC Shelter Cats and Washington Cat Rescue on Facebook or call 252-946-4517 for more information. The Humane Society of Beaufort County can also be found on Facebook at
