Meet our friends Tang and Mango! Sadly, someone decided to abandon these orange cuties in a box in our parking lot several days ago. The sun was hot that day and we are grateful a staff member saw the box and brought them to safety. Tang and Mango are a bonded pair (likely brothers), and we would love to see them go home together. They are sweet-natured, curious boys who love toys, wrestling and cuddling.

Tang and Mango deserve a family who loves and cares for them – a forever home. If you would like to open your heart and home to our sweet boys, please call 910 937-1164 to schedule an appointment.

It’s not often that we get a stray parakeet here at OCAS, but this little cutie was brought to us by a concerned citizen who had found him at her wild bird feeder. The poor little guy was getting bullied by some aggressive blue jays, and the citizen rescued him and brought him to the shelter. Now named Romeo (he is quite the love), our little feathered friend is now available for adoption.

If you are looking to add a sweet little bird to your family, please call 910 937-1164 and ask for Romeo!

Meet Danny! Our handsome Danny is an approximately 3-year-old Akita mix. Looking for an intelligent, active pup? Danny is your boy! Danny is 48 pounds and has tested heartworm negative. He loves to run in the yard and play with toys. He knows his basic commands, sits politely for treats and toys and he enthusiastically "gives paw" when asked. Danny would love a home with a big, fenced yard to run and a human that can keep up – couch potatoes need not apply! If you are searching for a sidekick for your life's adventures, we would love for you to give Danny a chance.

Danny is currently available for adoption at Onslow County Animal Services. Please call 910 937-1164 to schedule an appointment.

***Adopted***
Our sweet little Sushi kitten had quite an ordeal on her way to our adoption floor. She first came to us with a fishhook embedded in her paw. She was immediately brought to our vet team and evaluated. Sushi was then anesthetized; the hook was removed, and her wound was tended to until healed. We are so fortunate at OCAS to have a veterinary staff to care for animals like Sushi.

Thanks to lots of TLC from shelter staff, 6-month-old Sushi made a quick recovery. She was spayed yesterday and is now available for adoption.

This calico beauty is a long-haired cat, so she will require extra grooming care. Her adopter will need be prepared to devote extra time to brushing and preventing matting.

If you are interested in adopting Miss Sushi, she is available for adoption today! Please call 910 937-1164 to schedule an appointment.

***Adopted***
Meet Rolo and Jazz! This 5-year-old guinea pig duo have been together their whole lives. They had been gifted to a couple as babies and brought to us when their humans were no longer able to care for them. These boys are chirpy and sweet-natured. They do well being handled, but we would recommend an experienced home. The boys love fresh veggies, playing hide-and-seek in their igloos and huddling up together. They have been very well cared for and will need a home that can give them lots of attention. Rolo and Jazz are a bonded pair, and we would never dream of separating them. They will be available for adoption tomorrow at 2PM.

If you can give these sweet boys a loving home, please call 910 937-1164 to schedule an appointment.

*** HAPPY TAILS ***

When Miss Ava wandered from home, her family was very worried and made sure to reach out to us at the shelter so that we could keep watch for her. Luckily Ava was found by a kind samaritan and brought to Animal Services. When she arrived we were able to call her mom right away and Ava was reunited without having to be impounded. We were happy to play a part in getting this sweet baby home!

If you have lost or found a pet, please make sure to reach out to us at OCAS immediately. A lost/found pet report is conveniently located on our website: https://www.onslowcountync.gov/1199/Report-LostFound-Pet

You may complete and submit the form online, provide contact and location information as well as upload details and a photo of the lost/found pet. The report is shared with all shelter and Animal Control staff so that we may help facilitate a quick reunion.

To help your beloved pet find their way back to you should you become separated, please make sure to keep microchip information updated and have your pet wear an ID, rabies tag and collar at all times.

9-year-old Otto was found by one of our Animal Control Officers, wandering the street on his own. Otto is blind, partially deaf and had clearly been through some tough years. Our hearts ached to know that he had no one to care for him. For a dog like Otto, with multiple special needs, adoption is not the best option.

For cases like his, we reach out to our network of rescue partners, to find an organization who can best provide the necessary care. Sometimes we are able to quickly find a placement, but for Otto, the task was more difficult. Our rescue coordinator Miss Juliet, refused to give up on Otto and worked tirelessly to find him placement.

We are so happy to know that our sweet old man Otto has left the shelter behind and will spend his golden years surrounded with the love and care he deserves.

It’s rare for our smallest shelter friends to go unnoticed, but it has been several days, and no one has come for our adorable puppies Pebbles, Perry & Lincoln. It’s been a busy week for families in Onslow County, with school back in session, so we are hoping we will have a big adoption weekend.

Ten-month-old siblings Perry and Pebbles are as cute as can be. Sweet Pebbles is just 20 pounds and should stay on the small side; happy-go-lucky big brother Perry is 26 pounds. These two cuties are full of wags and wiggles and ready to graduate from the shelter to new best friend.

Handsome Shepherd mix Lincoln is just 5 months old, but already 35 pounds. The shelter can be a bit overwhelming, and Lincoln is a shy guy. He will need a home that will allow him to grow and gain his confidence.

These pups will all need a patient and diligent home that will train them to be their best puppy selves.



Want to adopt? Please call 910-937-1164 to schedule a meet and greet. All adoptions are by appointment and are first come, first serve. Any questions? Staff will be happy to help. Just give us a call!

Thank you all for thinking of our pups on National Dog Day!

*** Happy Tails – OCAS Alumni Update ***

Our handsome boy Zeus finally found his happily ever after!

Zeus was originally brought to OCAS because he “wasn’t trainable,” but he was just a young, silly boy in need of some extra time and patience. Many dogs like Zeus end up at shelters, not because they have done something wrong but because their humans were not prepared for the responsibility of a pet. If you are thinking of welcoming a new pet into your family, please do your research. Please make sure that you have the time, money, patience, and love to provide a forever home for your new pet.

Now that he has found his perfect family, Zeus is a happy, playful boy that loves snuggles and car rides for pup cups. And now Zeus is starting a brand-new adventure and is on his way to Tennessee! We are thrilled to hear that Zeus is doing so well and we are so grateful to his family for giving him a second chance.
