Surrender a Pet


There will always be more homeless animals than we can accommodate.

If you have an adoptable pet that you need to have re-homed, we recommend

you contact all rescue resources in your area. The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina does not accept stray animals. If you have found a stray please contact the animal control agency for the county/city in which you found the animal.


Consider finding your dog or cat another home instead of surrendering him to a

shelter or the Humane Society. This will be less stressful for your animal, allows you to play a part in uniting him with a new family, and makes additional space available for pets whose lives are at risk. 


Please understand that the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina is committed to

each of our dogs or cats for life! Because of the quality care administered to all of our

homeless pets, we require a $50 surrender fee if your pet is accepted into our

adoption program. For litters of animals, please reach out to us about a litter discount. This nominal fee does not come close to covering the significant cost of medically caring for, sheltering and adopting out your pet.


Please fill out the surrender form and contact your veterinarian to obtain all updated medical information. E-mail the surrender form along with your veterinary records proving up-to-date vaccination records, including a Rabies Certificate, to You may also mail or bring the information to our facility at 3520 Tupper Drive, Greenville, NC 27834. We will review your information and if we feel your animal is a good match for our program, we will contact you to schedule a behavior and medical evaluation to accept your animal into our adoption program.
