Edgecombe County Animal Shelter

2909 Main Street
Tarboro, NC 27886

Our Mission

**Due to COVID-19, the shelter is currently closed to the public and adoptions are NOT being done at this time. All available animals are being sent to our rescue partners. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Micro-chipping may be the one thing that reunites you with your pet!  Ask your veterinarian about getting this done.  Never think that your pet will never be lost! Anything is possible and you don't want your pet stuck in a shelter when they could be easily reunited with you if they were chipped.

We are a small, county run shelter with three Officers and work for the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office. 

If you would like to make a donation, feel free to do so.  We can always use dog/cat food, cat litter, treats, leashes, bleach, crates, paper towels, Dawn dish detergent, towels and rags.

Adoption Policy


All animals listed are deemed adoptable by shelter staff.  The staff at this shelter do their best to get the animals to a happy home!  As long as we have space, we do what we can to get them adopted or rescued!

Come see us to adopt your furry friend! This is a MANDATORY spay/neuter shelter.

We have a high volume of animals coming in.
