Usually with adoptions and our Rescue partners, we can get everyone out eventually. We have dogs that have been with us a little while and need homes! If you have room for a new dog in a loving home, or know someone who does, PLEASE contact us on 252-534-1125 to make appointment to meet one.

Shelter Hours: Monday - Friday: 8:30am - 5:00pm except holidays.

Who we are
The Northampton Animal Shelter is a county facilty operated Northampton County Animal Control under the requirements of the Code of the North Carolina. Animals are held in accordance with state requirements, and are redeemed by the owner, adopted, or euthanized. We are looking for homes for dogs in Hertford, Bertie, Halifax, Warren and Northampton County areas of North Carolina. Enquiries from rescues anywhere are welcome.

Our shelter is a very small shelter which in turn means we cannot hold dogs for long periods. We do have employees who work with the animals on a regular basis, full days Monday-Friday to test, house-train, leash train, and get to know any issues with these dogs and cats. They are worked with one on one, and we have a good idea what they need, so you will be well informed. If you are interested in one of these furbabies, please call 252-534-1125 and leave a voicemail to set up an appointment or message our Facebook page.
