About PAWS of Carteret

PAWS was established to fill a need for an alternative animal shelter, improved animal care, and greater awareness of animal issues in Carteret County, North Carolina. PAWS will bring new focus to adoption, spaying and neutering, and community education and participation. PAWS is a membership organization, open to all, and responsive to the needs of animals and the community.

PAWS partners with Carteret County Emergency Services & County Animal Control to provide a Pet Friendly Hurricane Shelter for Carteret County.

PAWS has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Coastal Carolina and other civic organizations providing fun, educational pet care clinics.

PAWS rescues, vets, and saves pets regularly.

PAWS offers an adoption program where all pets placed are spayed, neutered and healthy.
