Martin County Sheriff’s Office Animal Enforcement Division provides a shelter for stray animals and owner turn-in animals, which can either be placed up for adoption or euthanized.  NC State law only requires stray animals to be held for 72 hours.  It is imperative if you have lost an animal to report it immediately.

The Sheriff’s Office also provides additional animal control services such as loaning out of dog/cat traps and investigating animal bites and animal cruelty in the county, and offering annual rabies clinics by partnering with local veterinarians. 

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office encourages animal adoption.  Pets can help improve your health – not to mention giving a great home to a pet in need.  Please come by during the hours above to consider pets for adoption. 

The Martin County Animal Shelter also partners with Moratoc Animal Rescue on pet adoptions and other animal issues.  Moratoc Animal Rescue holds adoption clinics regularly.
Several municipalities in Martin County have their own animal control ordinances. Check with your town to see what animal regulations they have.
