Adopt A Pet

How to Adopt a Pet

The Board of Commissioners has approved a number of safety actions intended to reduce the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 Coronavirus for citizens and county employees.

One of those is to conduct county business online if feasible and by appointment only if not.

With that being said, we will be at the shelter to care for the animals and to answer phone calls, however we will not be open to volunteers, community service, and potential adopters or owners wanting to surrender their pets will need to call 252-453-8682 and make an appointment prior to coming.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Currituck County uses Petango to list all our available animals.

If you are interested in meeting a dog or cat that is in Foster please contact the animals shelter at 252-453-8682 to make an appointment.

If the pet listing says “Accepting Applications” the dog or cat is on hold and not currently available. If you are interested in adopting a dog/cat on hold you may go ahead and fill out an Adoption Application and turn it in to the Animal Shelter.

After receiving your completed Adoption Application the shelter staff will:

  • verify with your veterinarian to make sure your pets preventive treatments are up to date;
  • contact your landlord, if you are renting, to verify you are allowed to have pets  in the home.
