The Carteret County Humane Society is a 501c3 Non-Profit that has been operating since June 1986. Serving all of Carteret County, the shelter facility is located on Hibbs Road in Newport. Our mission is, “One Paw at a Time, we are Changing the World”. We take in all domesticated owner surrenders and strays within the County and provide food, water, shelter, medical care, exercise, and love for all animals. Animals are adopted out to the public, after attempts are made to locate their rightful owner. We are reducing our euthanasia rate by finding the best new homes for all adoptable animals who come into the shelter. Animals are adopted out locally and nationwide.
