FAQ's :



Q: "Are you a no-kill shelter?"

The SPCA of Northeastern North Carolina is an Open Admission Animal Shelter. This means that we accept every animal brought into our facility by both Pasquotank and Camden County residents, and those picked up by Animal Control. We do euthanize animals for poor health or temperament that is deemed unsafe for adoption, but we do not impose a time limit for animals and we work very hard to match each animal with a loving, forever home.

Q: "What's included in the Adoption process?"


Once you've found the animal who is right for you, we ask that you complete an adoption form telling us more about your experience with animals. We will also need a copy of your driver's license. If you are adopting a dog and currently have a dog at home, we ask that you bring your dog in for a visit to help make sure they are a compatible pair.  Adoption fees for dogs are: $90 for dogs 6 months and older, $130 for 5 months and younger

Adoption fees for cats are: $50 for cats 6 months and older, and $65 for kittens under 5 months of age 

Q: "What's included in the Adoption Fee?"


Each animal's adoption fee includes their spay or neuter, microchip and registration, dewormer and age appropriate vaccines, a collar, and an adoption folder with all of the information you need when adoption an animal.

*Extra-large dogs will require owner to cover spay/neuter expenses, pending the animal is not already altered.
