Animal Services 

Welcome to Animal Services

The County of Harnett Animal Services mission is to protect the health and safety of citizens, advocate animal protection / welfare and promote the humane treatment of all animals.

Animal Services has two separate but equal divisions that work together to carry out our mission. Animal control efforts are concentrated on rabies control and public safety through enforcement of the County’s Animal Control Ordinance, capture of non-immunized dogs and cats, and gaining control of roaming livestock.

The Shelter division's efforts are concentrated on the special attention to safety, well-being and health of animals in the shelter’s charge. Additionally, the Shelter division oversees vaccination, adoptions and shelter volunteer programs.
