The Betsy Bailey Nelson Animal Control Facility/Beaufort County animal shelter is open Mondays through Fridays as normal, with the exception of the public coming into the building freely. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shelter is 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.



Sweet, friendly, mild natured and beautiful just begins to describe this girl. Bella is listed as a large, approximately 9-month-old, white and tan, hound/Labrador retriever mix. She will do best with family/owner(s) who be attentive and kind, take her with them on their outings, give exercise/play, preferably in a fenced area or on a leash, give her nutritious food, obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. For more see Facebook’s ENC Shelter Dogs page, Bella, ID No. 0843. Come meet her; she’s available at the shelter.



Listed as approximately 3 months old, Diamond, an American shorthair tabby, is pretty, oh-so-pretty dressed in tan, light/dark gray, tabby stripes with white accents and a little pink rosebud nose.
