Our Adoption Process:

Welcome to the Harnett County Animal Control Adoption page. Our department would like to thank you for your interest in a new pet. Remember that when you adopt an animal, you are the one responsible for the care and behavior of that animal. Your family and home need to be prepared for the new member to make it a safe and happy transition.

Our adoption fee is $20.00, and a rabies vaccination must be paid for at any licensed veterinary or animal hospital before the animal is released to go to a new home. Unlike some counties, Harnett County does not require that our adoptable animals be spayed or neutered. However, we STRONGLY URGE that the new owner consider the surgery.

Our shelter attendants can help direct you to a promising new pet suitable for your family and home environment. Since many of our animals are brought in or picked up as strays, we do not know their medical history. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee their health. We strongly encourage you to take your new pet to a veterinarian as soon as possible, whether it is an adult dog or cat, puppy, or kitten. We also reserve the right to deem an animal unadoptable due to certain reasons of surrender by the animal's owner, or by our own experiences with the animal.

All adoptions are done on a first come, first serve basis. If you have picked an animal from our shelter and leave to get the required rabies vaccine paperwork, the animal will be on hold. If space allows, we may hold an animal until the proper arrangements are made.

Remember that the shelter has a steady flow of incoming animals that would make great pets!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
