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. If you are in need of an animal pick up, need a rabies vaccine, or have an animal complaint please call 910-893-0800.  

The Animal Shelter's efforts are concentrated on the special love and attention to safety, well-being and health of animals in the shelter’s care. Additionally, the Animal Shelter oversees donations, adoptions, volunteer program, public events and reuniting lost pets. Please help us with these efforts by adopting, donation and volunteering! For more information about these please call 910-814-2952.

The Animal Shelter's motto is: Care they need, Love they deserve, CHEWS TO ADOPT!!!
