Outer Banks SPCA

Dare County Animal Shelter

Welcome to the Outer Banks SPCA

The Outer Banks SPCA’s goal is to save the lives of all healthy, treatable, and manageable dogs and cats in our community. Our organization offers multiple low-cost programs to assist with rabies vaccines and spay and neuter assistance. We strive to educate all our potential adopters and implement progressive animal adoption programs in our ongoing effort to save lives.

Brick by Brick, Paw after Paw

This is a time lapse of the brick installation completed at the new OBX SPCA in Manteo, NC! These bricks were all donated by community members and supporters across the nation to the “Brick by Brick, Paw after Paw” fundraiser, which supports the realization of the animals’ dream come true: a BRAND NEW FACILITY! If you would like to donate a brick, please visit and remember, ADOPT! DON’T SHOP!
