We currently have dogs, puppies, cats and kittens which are in need of a home. We prefer to adopt within our immediate area; however, you can contact us and leave a fax number so that we can fax you a questionnaire form.

Our Featured Pet...


HELP WANTED- We are in need of temporary foster care homes to house our rescued pets and also in need of local volunteers to help with these animals at our adopt-a-thons and walking the dogs at a boarding facility. Also if you have a business and want to help, we have a need of locations to put our doggy banks for donations. If interested call our answering service at 446-1669 and we will call back and make arrangements to place it there. We now have LAND. What we really need now is the funds to build. We know that times are hard and our money does not go as far as it should. But with out your help, we can not help as many as we would like. Please help us help the animals by donating to the Building Fund.

Who We Are

The Edgecombe-Nash Humane Society is a non-profit organization of volunteers who rescue stray and abused animals in Nash and Edgecombe counties. We do not euthanize our rescued pets. Our rescued pets are kept in foster homes and at boarding facilities, since we do not have our own facilities. All medical care, food, shelter or any other support for these rescued pets is funded strictly through donations as we do not receive any government, state, city, or county funding. Monetary donations are used strictly for the care of these animals. We also need puppy and kitten food, dog pens, crates and houses, cat litter and carriers, and toys. These items may be donated by calling 252-446-1669 so a volunteer can give you a drop off location. The animals need your help so please consider making a donation, becoming a temporary foster parent, or by volunteering your time to walk the dogs or help at our adopt-a-thons.

Adopting a friend

All potential new guardians must complete a questionnaire form, allow us to verify vet records on your current and past pets, sign an adoption contract, agree to not declaw cats, and donate an adoption fee between $55-$135 which is dependent on what medical attention the animal has received. We require that all of our dogs have a fenced in yard in their new home. All our animals are up to date with shots and most of our pets have been spayed or neutered; however, those which are too young at adoption will be required to be spayed or neutered within a certain time frame. We do not adopt our dogs to people that plan on using them as working dogs or hunting dogs. Our current veterinarians do not at present give us vouchers for reduced spaying & neutering costs. Other animals may also have other requirements which must be met prior to adoption. If we do not have the particular type or breed that you are looking for, we will put you on a waiting list to be called if that particular animal becomes available as we do keep in contact with 4 other animal shelters. We show our rescued pets that are for adoption at Petsmart in Rocky Mount, every other Saturday from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. We would like to thank the managment at our local Petsmart for working with us to help keep the unwanted animals alive and finding them good homes. If you need more information give us a call at 252-446-1669, this is an answering machine so leave a contact number for both night and day .
