Do you have any restrictions due to Covid-19?

For the safety of our volunteers, staff, and community, OCAS is implementing temporary measures to ensure the health and safety of our staff and patrons. 

We are now available for stray intake, owner reclamation, rabies vaccinations and adoptions by appointment only. In order to reduce the amount visitors in the facility and abide by social distancing requirements, appointments are limited. Please call 910-937-1164 to schedule an appointment. 

Animal Control Officers will be responding to emergency calls only. Please call 910-455-0182 and select the option for dispatch for assistance with an animal control emergency. 

Shelter donations will be accepted via direct shipment to 244 Georgetown Road, Jacksonville NC 28540 or by no-contact donation drop-offs at the facility during business hours. Please call for assistance. 

One-year rabies vaccinations are provided every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday by appointment. Please call 910-937-1164 to schedule a same-day appointment. Please be aware that appointments are very limited. 

For the health & safety of our staff and patrons, a mask is required for all OCAS appointments.
