The month of October is “Dog Adoption Month.”

During the month of October, dogs and puppies at the shelter will have an adoption fee of $55 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. For more information, call 252-946-1591.

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




Cuter than cute, that’s our Marco. Wearing a pristine white, shorthair coat with orange tabby stripes the color of marmalade, he is a joy to see. At 4 months old, his personality is developing, and he’s full of love and affection! His character is friendly, inquisitive, smart and gentle. Marco will make a wonderful addition in a variety of good forever, loving, home settings. See more of him at Shelter Cats/ID#1773. Stop in and spend a little time with Marco; he’s available through Saturday at the shelter.
