PAWS of Carteret
The Rainbow Bridge.............There is an Indian legend that says when a human dies there is a bridge they must cross to enter into heaven. At the head of that bridge waits every animal that human encountered during their lifetime. The animals, based upon what they know of this person, decide which humans may cross the bridge...and which are turned away.

Thrift Store Highlights
We Have A Terrific Thrift Store!
Proceeds from the Thrift Store go to the pet adoption, rescue, & foster program and to the development of an alternative shelter for animals. Volunteers operate the store, and are deserately needed now. Schedules are very flexible and any time given will be greatly appreciated. Please call (252) 247-3341 if you would be kind enough to donate your time.
PAWS is a non-profit organization working towards construction of an alternative animal shelter in Carteret County. During the interim we offer a limited adoption assistance program based on the number of Foster homes we have available and directed towards those wanting to adopt a pet or needing to find a home for one. Many of our pets are rescues and all are vetted & healthy prior to placement.
We need you! If you can help at our Thrift store call
