Find a pet to adopt
AVAILABLE 10-07-16 On 10-01-16 an Animal Control Officer was at the location of our old Shelter when this friendly dog walked up to her for a pet. She loaded him into her truck and brought him to our new Shelter. We tested him for heart worms and found none, vaccinated him and named him Russell. He was missing some fur, but with proper nutrition and attention, it seems to be filling out and he's even more handsome than when he arrived. Russell is a bit of a goofy guy who loves to lay on his back while sleeping on his Karunda bed. He does pretty well on leash walks and although he seems to love people, Russell would probably prefer being an only pet. His adoption fee includes his neuter and a microchip. If you'd like to meet Russell just come to the Shelter in Elizabeth City - he'll be the one stretched out on his back snoozing.
