Due to COVID-19 restrictions, if you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please call us at

Adopting a pet can be a wonderful experience for you and your family. The Caldwell County Animal Control Staff is dedicated to helping you find the animal that best suits you and your families' lifestyle. Adopting an animal is a long term commitment that requires careful forethought. Please consider the time, money and responsibility that caring for an animal requires. For more information on choosing the right pet visit our Choosing the Right Pet webpage.
Caldwell County Animal Control also suggests that you include the entire family in the adoption process. We encourage potential adopters to allow adequate time to "get acquainted" with the animal they wish to adopt. You can also bring your current pets to introduce them in our "get acquainted" area.
