When & Where
Humane Society of Eastern Carolina
The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina's mission is to serve as a safe haven for homeless and neglected pets and act 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.
The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina operates on a limited budget, so every penny is vital to our organization . All operating funds are acquired through private donations from individuals and businesses. The Humane Society of Eastern Carolina receives no funding from local, state, or federal tax dollars, nor do we receive funding from the Humane Society of the United States. We are one of the only no-kill facilities in the area, and the majority of animals adopted through us are rescued from local animal shelters by HSEC.
