Frequently Asked Questions

I have a pet I can no longer take care. I would like to rehome it, what should I do?

  • See if a family member or friend can take care of them.  Familiar faces make the transition less stressful on the pet.

  •  Use a service like Rehome to find a new adopter for your pet.  You will be able to select the best home for your pet.

  • Only as a last resort, contact you local animal shelter to surrender the pet.  If you live in Davie County, you can set an appointment to surrender them by calling 336-751-0227.

I found a stray dog/cat, what should I do?

  • Bring the animal to the Animal Shelter or a local vet to have them check for a microchip. If they do have a chip and the information is current, the owner can be contacted and hopefully reunited with them.

  • Post to all social media channels and check Facebook and social media sites to see if someone has posted the animal missing. Local news stations social media pages are a great place to start. There are several lost and found sites on Facebook including Lost and Found Of Davie Count, NC and Davie County Animal Services Page 

Do you have dog/cat food?

  • We do run a community pet food pantry to help pet owners in times of need. Visit our Pet Food Pantry page for details. 

Do you give rabies shots?

  • Davie County Animal Shelter provides a 1-year rabies vaccination for $5 (cash only) during their regular business hours, Tuesday-Friday 9am-3pm.

How do I report animal abuse and/or neglect?

  • Abuse- If you need to report abuse or neglect, you will need to contact Davie County Animal Services. The number for their officer on call is (336)751-0227. They are responsible for all the county Animal Cruelty Investigations. Any injured dogs, cats, animal related complaints, and rabies control are investigated by their team. Please be aware that they cannot take anonymous reports of abuse or neglect due to needing to document everything. Their officers need to be able to speak to the person who witnessed the situation. It is understood it can be uncomfortable reporting something but the animals cannot pick up the phone so we urge you to do so.
