About Our Shelter...
Animal Center of Moore County is a county facility that accepts all surrendered pets without question. Through a vibrant volunteer program, and committed staff, we are able to provide our pets with exercise and socialization in hopes of increasing their chances for adoption. Unfortunately, we bring in over 3,000 pets each year and only a little over a 1,000 are adopted. Please encourage family and friends to adopt a shelter pet and stress the importance of spay and neuter. Only through public awareness and education can we begin to increase adoptions and lower the euthanasia rate. Thank you for saving lives! The Animal Center of Moore County, NC.
