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:
-Complete the application and send it to
-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 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.**

Adopt a Bonded Pair of Rabbits Today!

Sometimes HSEC gets a different kind of furry face in their care. Meet Milo and Melody. This adorable duo is looking for a new home to call their own. They are Holland lops that are bonded, meaning they must go together! Milo is the orange and black one and is on the smaller side.

They are incredibly sweet and run up to you right away to greet you. They don’t necessarily like being held but LOVE to get pets on their heads. They both will just sit there for as long as you’ll pet them. They are food obsessed, of course, and get excited when it’s time for their pellets. Milo and Melody are neutered and spayed and would be amazing additions for any experienced rabbit owner.


When adopted, they will come with pellets, hay, bowls, and a few hidey houses.

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


Catcher is the cutest little ball of energy! He loves running around outside with other dogs, chewing on bones, going for car rides, and cuddling with his human friends. He is crate-trained and potty-trained but will still have a few accidents if not taken out regularly.


With him still being a puppy, he does require a lot of attention when it comes to getting his energy out, but when he does, he can’t wait to cuddle up and take long naps. He loves all dogs he meets but sometimes can be a lot for them because of all of his energy.


Catcher does have some issues with being picked up unless it is to go in the car or on the bed for a nap. He sleeps all through the night, and can’t wait to wake up and shower you with kisses! 


Featured Cat


Meet Milton! He came to HSEC a while back from one of our local vet offices. He was brought in to them as a stray by a good Samaritan and they liked him so much that they reached out to us to ask if we could take him. We said yes, of course, and he has fit right in with his friends in the cattery. His favorite time of day is when volunteers come in to hang out with him because he gets to love all over them and get back scratches. Although Milton loves all his feline companions, he wishes to find his fur-ever home soon!
