From Beaufort County Government:

Due to a recent influx of animal intakes, the Beaufort County Animal Shelter is at capacity and is therefore unable to accept additional animals until more space becomes available.

Animal Shelter staff will continue to respond to emergent cases as needed.

Beaufort County Animal Control is requesting the public’s help in finding new homes for the animals at the Shelter. The Shelter is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on Saturday.

The adoption fee covers the spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, a set of vaccinations, flea medication, and, if the animal is over 4 months old, a rabies shot. Those fees are as follows:

  • Cats younger than 4 months: $55
  • Cats 4 months or older: $65
  • Puppies: $75
  • Adult Dogs: $85

    You can see pictures and basic information about adoptable animals at the Shelter online at (formerly Petango). Information is also posted on the Beaufort County Animal Control Facebook Page.
