In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Wayne County Animal Services will be open only to appointments for all services at the animal shelter. Appointments can be made by calling (919) 731-1439, then press “0″.

Appointments can be scheduled for rabies vaccines, searching for a lost animal, reporting an animal that has been found, reclaiming an animal, or turning in a stray animal. If you are interested in adopting an animal, please view the current list of animals available for adoption at If you own a personal trap and plan on trapping, please contact the shelter prior to using your trap. If you make an appointment and you are not feeling well, please call to cancel your appointment instead of visiting the shelter.
