Our Mission Statement:
Dare County Animal Services, operated by the Outer Banks SPCA, provides professional and progressive animal welfare assistance to our residents. Our focus is on providing quality care, rescue, reunification, and rehabilitation to all stray, homeless, and abandoned animals in Dare County. We maintain extraordinary standards and achieve exceptional results, making our organization a well respected resource for responsible pet adoption, ownership, education, and retention on the Outer Banks.
The Outer Banks SPCA is an open-admission animal shelter dedicated to caring for all the lost and homeless animals of Dare County. As such, we take in approximately 2,000 dogs and cats each year. We never turn away a Dare County fur resident, whether they be sick, injured, aggressive or behavior challenged. We receive owner give ups, lost, stolen or stray, but we never turn away.
We believe it is not the animal's fault for being at the shelter. We want every healthy, treatable and manageable animal to get a second chance at love. We are dedicated and determined to saving every life we can through responsible animal care practices. We strive to maintain good health and a sound temperament in all our animals. We practice humane education and employ proactive adoption programs to decrease our animals length of stay and optimize space.
