Who We Are

Duplin County Animal Control is a small rural shelter located in KENANSVILLE, NC. We are commonly referred to as the "dog pound." (WE ARE IN NO WAY AFFILATED WITH D.A.R.T.). We take in stray cats and dogs in our county along with animals surrendered by their owners. We are a kill shelter. Due to overpopulation, animals frequently have to be euthanized to make room for new animals that arrive at our shelter on a daily basis.

Spay / Neuter Facts

Spaying and Neutering is an important issue. They are both surgical procedures. Neutering is for a male animal and is where they remove the testicles. Spaying is done on female animals. Spaying is the removal of the uterus and the ovaries. Did you know that In 6 years, 1 female dog and its offspring can produce over 68,000 puppies. In 7 years, 1 female cat and its young can produce over 430,000 cats. Over 7 million pets are euthanized each year because there are no homes for them. Below are just a few reasons to do it. There are many more reasons to list but I think you will get the point. 1. Your Pet DOES NOT need to have just one litter. 2. Once spayed/Neutered your animals are less likely to roam or stray from home and less likely to fight with other animals. 3. Male Cats when neutered, Often stop spraying to mark territory. 4. Licensing fees are reduced when your pet is spayed/neutered 5. You can spay your pet as early as 16 weeks old. 6. Its not true that your pet will get Lazy and Obese. They will only get that way if you overfeed them. 7. In my experiences, once they are spayed/neutered, my pets have become more loving pets. 8. If you own a female cat or dog, They can INFACT Be spayed while they are in heat or are pregnant. 9. By spaying/neutering your pet, it will not change their individual personality. 10. You can afford it! There are low income and some free programs that will help with the cost. You can more readily afford to have your pet spayed/neutered than you can afford a litter of puppies or kittens which will cost more as they grow. Please Check www.spayusa.org for more information on Low Cost Spay and Neuter. You can contact your local animal humane division to get more information on Low Cost Spay/Neuter Programs in your area.
