NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON SATURDAYS!
To accommodate new hours, we will be closed to the public on Mondays.
We are proud of our sparkling clean shelter and encourage all citizens of Moore County to visit us. We have a large selection of adoptable pets and our fees are very reasonable. Last year, Moore County Animal Control returned 180 dogs and cats to their owners and facilitated the reunion of many more. If you lose your pet, please call us. We may have it or someone may well have already reported finding it. For more information, click Lost & Found.
