HSEC is taking steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while still working toward our mission of finding forever homes for the animals in our care.
HSEC will be closed to the public and volunteers until further notice. During this time, HSEC will allow applications for adoption to be placed online. The applications are linked below. Please send your completed application to AdoptHSEC@gmail.com.
HSEC plans to continue this process through May 20th. During that time, HSEC will continue to monitor and evaluate how best to respond to this issue. As this is such a fluid and continually changing situation, HSEC asks that the public monitor our social media channels as the closure timeline is subject to change based on recommendations from public health officials.
Please know that our animals will continue to receive the top-quality care and love that they deserve from our staff. Our mission of finding forever homes for our animals will always remain, but we must ensure we keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible in this time of uncertainty.

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.

Willow is a beautiful 14 month old coonhound mix who loves to play tug-o-war. She also loves snuggling with people when she sleeps. Willow is looking for a special forever home to take care of her and give her lots of love. Willow has a history of seizures and takes Zonisamide twice daily. However, she has not had a seizure since starting her medicine! Willow likes being the center of attention (earning her the nickname Tinkerbell) and therefore would be happiest in a single-pet household.
Hello there, My name is Sage. I came to the HSEC with my kittens. They grew up fast and do not need to be mothered anymore. So now I am looking to do my own thing. I am very loving and would like to curl up on a warm lap or snuggle in for a good movie. I am looking forward to finding my Purrfect home.
