Iredell County Animal Services provides temporary shelter for stray and unwanted animals. These animals may become available for adoption if they meet our wellness and behavior requirements. Iredell County Animal Services works with approved rescue groups to place as many pets as possible into loving homes. We have lots of pets available for adoption.
Free education seminars! We have monthly public education opportunities available at no cost on a variety of topics. These seminars are on the 1st Monday of each month at 6:30pm. They are listed on our website under Upcoming Events. Our website is http://www.co.iredell.nc.us/Departments/Animal_Control/ .
