Our Mission Statement:

A community resource dedicated to rescue, adoption, assistance, and education.

 

Our Vision Statement:

We will promote innovative animal welfare, cultivate a responsible and humane community, and find all adoptable animals homes.

Who we are and what we do....

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 animals 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. 
 

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 levels of spay and neuter assistance to our community.  We strive to educate, not to eliminate, all of our potential adopters and implement progressive animal adoption programs in our ongoing effort to save more lives.
