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
-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 new 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!

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.

I'm Hemingway, now I may not be a famous journalist but I am famous for stealing the hearts of everyone I meet. I may be a little hard of hearing but that doesn't slow me down at all. I love treats and sniffing all the things around me. I am working on my leash manners as well as a few other tricks. I'm a super chill dude, so I wouldn't even mind a doggie or kitty companion in my future forever home! I have the cutest coonhound face you'll ever see... and I think you should come see it in person. Come to HSEC and I promise I'll win your heart over!
Hello, My name is Tostada and I am ready to meet my forever family. I am hoping it is you! There are many things I like to do but my favorite thing is playing with toys. I mean who doesn't love to chase a ball around that jingles? No, just me? If you like hanging out and playing with toys I am your kitten. I also love spending time with my brother, Ceviche, if you are interested in two.
