About Us


Prior to May 2007, the Bertie County Animal Shelter had room for only 4 adult cats or 4 litters of kittens.  
We are proud to have built our own cat facility which houses 20 or more cats and kittens.
We also have for adoption cats that may not be acclimated to inside living, but would love a home & yard of their own. We lovingly refer to them as our Barn Cats. 
Our long range goals are:
  • to open a no-kill facility of our own
  • to provide a dog park with lots of room for running, playing, & socializing
  • To implement spay/neuter clinics in our area
  • Provide assess to training classes
  • Provide education on the important roles animals have in & around our community.
If you are interested in volunteering, adopting, or simply would like more information on our mission and how you can help, please don't hesistate to contact us at 252-325-3647.  We welcome any inquiries or questions.  

Adopting A Friend

Should you see a shelter resident that you are interested in meeting, please call us at 252-325-3647 to arrange a meet and greet.  Keep in mind, we have animals coming in and out daily, so we may have pets available that are not yet reflected here.

Our adoption fees with an approved adoption application are as follows:

Neutered/Spayed Dogs/Puppies:   $50.00  

Neutered/Spayed Cats/Kittens:       $50.00  

Un-Neutered/Un-Spayed Dogs/Puppies:     $10.00                                   

Un-Neutered/Un-Spayed Cats/Kittens:         $10.00   

Please note that our mission is to reduce the number of homeless animals in Bertie County, NC; therefore we will require un-neutered or un-spayed animals that are adopted to be spay or neutered. Please ask us for local vet recommendations.  We will work with you to ensure that this is accomplished.
