We are an open admission shelter and do not turn any animals away. If you are a Durham County resident you are welcome to drop off an animal at any time during our normal business hours. We are not able to accept animals from outside of Durham County into our program. Please bring proof of residence and copies of any medical information pertaining to the animal. There will be a small amount of paperwork at the time of drop off. Please understand that due to the large number of animals the shelter takes in, we cannot make any guarantees as to the placement of an animal. If you need an animal picked up, contact Durham Sheriff’s Animal Services at (919) 560-0900.
