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.**

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


Ocracoke is an absolute ball of energy and cuteness. This puppy is always ready for an adventure and loves to explore the world with her wagging tail and playful spirit. She has the most adorable puppy eyes that will make your heart melt every time you look at them.


Ocracoke is not just a furry friend but a bundle of joy that will bring endless happiness to your life. Ocracoke lights up any room she walks (or more accurately runs into) and makes sure to stop and give lots of kisses and cuddles along the way! If you're looking for a loyal, fun-loving companion, Ocracoke is the perfect addition to your family!


Featured Cat



Frosty was surrendered back to HSEC for no fault of her own. Adopted from us a little while back, Frosty has had a rough girl. This gorgeous cat, as white as snow, loves to be the first cat to greet you when you walk into the cat palace. Her loud meow is hard to misplace with another cat, when you hear her you know it's Frosty! Everything about Frosty is precious, from her pink little nose to her cute cotton ball paws! If you are interested in adopting this precious girl, head over to
