Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Dog, Hoggie 0287

Very sweet, with playful puppy energy, Hoggie is all love!  He listens well and he is very well behaved, plus, he’s believed to be dog friendly!   At 1 year old, this handsome tan/white, Bully-mix, big boy will do best with folks who are familiar with this magnificent breed, who will give him love, attention, and lots of exercise, preferably in a yard and a good forever home. Come play with Hoggie, ID No. 0287, he’s waiting for you at the Shelter.


Kitten, Sophie 0290

Already spayed with a reduced rate! Sweet Sophie was adopted as a shy kitten and loved her owner dearly. Sadly, her owner had to move into a retirement facility. Sophie was returned to the Shelter, in hopes of finding a new quiet, loving home, to be spoiled like she was before!  At 6 months old, Sophie, ID No. 0290, is a beautiful, American shorthair, gray Tuxedo – a very shy, purr box, who wants to love and be loved. She’s waiting for you at the Shelter.


The Beaufort County animal shelter is open Mondays through Fridays, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, the shelter will be closed unless an appointment is made before 5:00 p.m. Friday. Animal control officers are at the shelter by 8 a.m. daily. Shelter employees will not answer the phone in the morning due to all staff being hands-on with morning operations. The shelter strongly recommends leaving a voicemail with contact information and will get back to callers as soon as possible. In the case of an emergency, contact the Beaufort County Sheriff’s to reach the Animal Control officer on call. The shelter is located at 3931 U.S. Highway 264 East in Washington.
