Emergency Services

 

Hurricane Florence is expected to hit the Carolinas and Person County may be severely impacted.

Person County Animal Services would like the public to be aware that should the shelters within the county open up and there is a need to evacuate, we will open the animal shelter to accept household pets that have nowhere to go. Only the pet’s medications/prescription food will be necessary to bring with the pet.

Please remember to move any outdoor pets to higher grounds in the event of flooding.

 Spay and Neuter … it’s the only way!

Pet overpopulation is the leading killer of cats and dogs in our country.

  • An estimated 3.7 million animals are euthanized in animal shelters each year across the United States.
  • The majority of pet overpopulation comes from unaltered pets living in low-income neighborhoods.
  • In some Triangle NC shelters, up to 75% of all incoming animals are euthanized to make room for more.
  • Fifty thousand puppies and kittens are born every day in our country.
  • U.S. taxpayers spend up to $2 billion each year on services to collect, house, destroy and dispose of unwanted animals.
