Meet Angel. Angel came to the shelter as a cruelty case. She spent the first year of her life chained to a tree. In addition, someone had tied a bandana around her neck so tightly that it grew into her skin causing a massive infection. In addition, cloth cut off the circulation in her neck and caused her face to badly swell. It took months of TLC from a loving foster family, but Angel is now healthy and ready to find a home. Despite a rough start on life, Angel is a playful dog who loves humans and most other dogs. At 1.5–2 years old, she still has lots of puppy energy. She loves to play frisbee, chase, loves running, and enjoys attention from humans. Angel's foster family took her to some training classes so she is learning manners, like not jumping on people, SIT, and being gentle with toys and treats. She has come a long way. With proper introductions, Angel gets along with other dogs who are not dominant. An ideal home for Angel would be with an experienced dog owner who is looking for an active partner to explore the outdoors with. The scar around Angel's neck is still evident, but that doesn't slow her down one bit. She is a HAPPY, HAPPY, JOYFUL dog, full of life.

About Lenoir County SPCA

About Our Shelter...

We are seeing increasingly growing numbers of family pets turned in due to the weak economy, vacations and moving plans, in addition to the strays and abandoned animals being brought in by Animal Control. We usually see a decrease in the number of adoptions much to the same reasons. Therefore, we will be continuously overcrowded and have many wonderful animals desperate for safe, loving homes.

IF YOU SEE an animal you are interested in, please call the shelter and see if it is still available. Animals are held a minimum of 72 hours. As space permits, animals are kept beyond their legal hold time. This website is updated weekly.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Shelter hours are Monday thru Saturday 12 noon to 4 p.m. and closed on Sundays.

Our Adoption Process...

There is always a constant flow of animals at the shelter, making it nearly impossible to keep an accurate web page. There are always several more at the shelter than what you may see here. I encourage you to visit the shelter. Adopting a pet is very easy. We have everyone fill out a questionaire,including a veterinary reference, just to make sure our animals get the best homes possible. There is a $100.00-115.00 donation for all dogs and a $45-65.00 dollar donation for cats, which includes a spay/neuter certificate, a rabies vaccine, worming and a distemper vaccine for the animal. You are required to take the animal into a vet within three to five days to insure its health and to get any additional shots.


We are very pleased and fortunate to on occasion be able to place some of our wonderful pets into all breed or breed specific rescue groups where they will be safe and cared for until their forever home is found. To ensure that our animals are placed into legitimate and proper rescue groups, there is a screening process for the organization. If you are with a rescue organization and are interested in one of our animals, please email Kris, our Rescue Coordinator.

You will be required to provide your organization's adoption contract, vet name and number so that verification can be obtained to condition of animals in your care, name of director or intake director, a brief overview of screening process, and any information about your organization you feel is necessary.
