Animal Services Unit

The mission of New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Unit is to protect the public from the threat of rabies virus exposure, and to ensure proper animal care, through prevention, public perception, and education.

 

The Animal Services Unit is a unit of the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office. It is the responsibility of this unit to enforce all state laws and county health regulations pertaining to domestic animals and the county animal control ordinance.  In addition, the Animal Services Unit will cooperate with any other law enforcement agency that may need assistance in handling any form of domestic animal.

 

Animals are available for adoption at the shelter at 180 Division Drive, Monday through Friday, from noon until 4:45 p.m.  Animals may be viewed on our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/NHSOAnimalServices
