Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week April 9-15, 2023

PITT COUNTY, N.C. – In recognition of Pitt County Animal Care and Control personnel, National Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week will be celebrated from Saturday, April 9 – Sunday April 15, 2023.  The Board of County Commissioners recognized the essential services and duties of Pitt County Animal Services (PCAS) during the Monday, April 3 board meeting.   


Endorsed by the National Animal Care & Control Association, the week-long event aims to honor Animal Care and Control personnel who devote their time and personal resources to serve their communities.


“In part, the mission of Pitt County Animal Services is to safeguard public health and safety through responsible pet ownership education and protect Pitt County animals from cruelty and neglect,” says James Rhodes, Assistant County Manager.  “Our staff also strives to provide the best socialization opportunities to animals in our care while promoting adoptable pets to the community on a daily basis.”   


“PCAS Officers protect the public from animal-carried diseases, educate the community on the proper care of household pets, and rescue animals that suffer from injury, disease, abuse and starvation, often at their personal risk,” says Chad Singleton, PCAS Director.  


PCAS will continue celebrating National Animal Care and Control Appreciation with a National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day adoption event on Saturday, April 29, 2023, from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at 4550 County Home Road, Greenville, N.C. Adoption fees are $125.00 for dogs and $85.00 for cats. The fee covers spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, microchipping, heartworm testing for dogs, FIV/FelV testing for cats and deworming.
