The shelter will be closed April 10-12 in observance of the Easter holiday.

The Betsy Bailey Nelson Animal Control Facility/Beaufort County animal shelter is up and running Mondays through Fridays as normal, with the exception of the public coming into the building freely. As with all county facilities, we are accepting visitors for business by appointment only. Saturdays, the shelter will be closed unless an appointment is made before 5 p.m. Friday. Setting an appointment allows our employees to try to answer questions on the phone and screen citizens to make sure they are not experiencing any symptoms of sickness before they come to the shelter. For the shelter specifically, people may call and schedule an appointment to view animals for adoption. These visits will be limited to two people at a time to minimize exposure.

The shelter is located at 3931 U.S. Highway 264 East in Washington. Normal hours open to the public: Mondays through Fridays, by appointment only, 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturdays, the shelter will be closed unless an appointment is made by 5 p.m. Friday.



This friendly guy is an approximately 2-year-old, retriever mix with a handsome brown/black brindle coat. Very energetic, Lewis loves to play, and he will do best with family/owner(s) who will give him attention, include him on their outings, give plenty of regular exercise, play included, in a fenced area or on a leash and, of course, a loving forever home. For more about Lewis, ID No. 0289, see Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dog page. Visit him at the shelter.



At approximately 8 months old, April, an American shorthair, is a wonderful tabby girl all dressed up in her beautifully colored, tan, cream and black-striped coat. Friendly and loving, April will be a wonderful and welcome addition in a good, loving forever home. For more on April, ID No. 0279, see Facebook’s Friends of Beaufort County Shelter Cats page.  Pay her a visit, you’ll be glad you did. She is available at the shelter.
