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


Relay is just a goofy girl looking for her forever home. She has been in and out of foster and has been a perfect house mate. She is house trained and SUPER dog friendly. Her favorite time of the day is when she gets to play with all her canine foster siblings and she loves to act like she's giving you her toy but then she quickly yanks it away or pulls on it to initiate tug-of-war. She is a great friend and playmate and would be the perfect match for anyone!

Featured Cat




Meet Hagrid, a spunky kitten from our "Harry Potter" Litter who is so excited to meet you. He has been spending his days lounging in the cattery with his friends and saying hello to everyone who enters. Hagrid loves to play tug-of-war, especially with his other siblings! As staff puts it, he is "chonky" so there is a lot to love. We can not wait for this little man to find his furever home!
