Animal Abuse

All animals deserve caring and humane treatment. Both local and state laws help to ensure animals are treated humanely and free from any unjustifiable pain and suffering. Animal Control Officers and local law enforcement officers are tasked with the duty of ensuring that Craven County animals:

  • Are provided adequate food and water
  • Are treated in a manner that does not subject them to pain, suffering, or death
  • Are not confined in a motor vehicle during times of extreme heat or cold

If you witness or suspect any inhumane treatment, please do not hesitate to report it immediately.
