HSEC is currently operating under a different adoption process. If you are interested in adopting one of HSEC's wonderful animals, please follow these steps:

-Download the Adoption Application from the homepage of our website: www.HSECarolina.org
-Complete the application and send it to AdoptHSEC@gmail.com
-A staff member will review your application and be in touch to set up an appointment time for you to meet with an Adoption Counselor

Appointments will be made during our usual Adoption Hours.

At this time, we will ONLY be able to walk adopters around after they have filled out the application and set an appointment time with HSEC staff. We will not be able to facilitate "walk-in" adoptions.

If you have any questions about this adoption process, please feel free to reach out to us. You may also email us at AdoptHSEC@gmail.com or call us at (252)413-7247.

Thank you and we are excited to match you with your perfect forever friend!

**An application is required in order to meet our adoptable pets, but it does not guarantee approval to adopt. HSEC is not able to hold specific animals and we can not promise you will be able to adopt the animal you apply for. We reserve the right to decline any application and/or suggest a dog or cat that we believe may fit your household best. Our goal is to make the best forever matches.**

The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina is a private non-profit 501c3 organization that provides temporary housing, feeding, and medical care to animals in need. The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina’s mission is to serve as a safe haven for homeless and neglected pets until they find their forever home and to serve as a resource to the community. By educating the public about issues pertaining to animals, we feel that we can work towards the elimination of over breeding of dogs and cats and teach owners to be responsible pet owners. At the same time, we hope to facilitate adoption of pets to good homes so that we can allow more unwanted animals to find a temporary home with us.


Help us by donating, adopting and volunteering.

Featured Dog


Izzy is searching for her forever home and is hoping it is with you. This big fluffy girl has a heart of gold to match her beautiful looks. She loves to get pets and is always up for some good scratches. Izzy can't wait to play and run around all of the time as she has plenty of energy to go around. She is as happy as can be and always up for the next adventure. Izzy loves to carry around her ball and will chase it endlessly if you throw it. Izzy can be true to the husky breed and be mouthy while playing at times so would do best with older kids or no kids. At the shelter, she appears to be housetrained. Izzy loves to get attention and wants to be the center of your world. She is on the search for a comfy home that will give her all of the love that this sweet girl deserves. Could Izzy be the missing part of your family?


Featured Cat


Medea has been in a foster home for over a year and she is looking to find her true forever. She came to HSEC truly terrified of everyone and everything, so she went to a patient foster home to gain confidence. Her foster mom says she soon began getting along with her cats and dogs and Medea began realizing humans aren't all that bad. She has become a vocal lady who isn't afraid to ask for dinner and she now even climbs into her foster mom's lap for affection. She has blossomed into a wonderful girl who would love a quiet and patient home willing to give her time to blossom!
