Nice new arrival! We've named this great young adult Hiccup (just because it's a cute name for this adorable cat!).
Hiccup is a former county stray about 1 1/2 years young. He has some growing to do and may end up on the large side! Right now, he's a but unsure of his surroundings but we think he is a very nice boy that any Tuxedo lover will love! He has the perfect, awesome look of these clowns and a laid-back and nice temperament. The Tuxedos are soon to be classified as a breed all their own. They are that nice! Come and pet this loveable kitty who loves petting! Hiccup is in great, shiny shape and ready for home.

Litterbox trained. Hiccup is neutered, fully vaccinated and FeLv/Fiv negative. He is now avaialble for adoption at Petsense in New Bern.
Adoption fees: Males $45.00. Females $65.00

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.
