Animal Services & Control



Due to current recommendations from the CDC and the State of North Carolina regarding COVID-19, the shelter will be allowing public in at half occupancy, if our lobby has the maximum number of individuals we will ask new arrivals to wait outside.

Please do your part to keep our community safe and do not make an appointment if you or any of your family members are sick.

About the Department

Iredell County Animal Services and Control provides a wide variety of services intended  to promote responsible pet ownership, protect the public from diseased and dangerous animals, and to treat all citizens and animals fairly and compassionately. In addition to the enforcement of state and local animal control laws, we meet our goals through public education, a commitment to positive outcomes, and by offering special programs and services.  We take constant measurements of the effectiveness of our program, and make targeted changes to continue to provide the community the best quality service we can provide.

Animal Shelter Services

Iredell County also operates an animal shelter where animals can be adopted, surrendered, and reclaimed by the public. Iredell County Animal Services and Control also offers rabies vaccinations, microchip identification, and subsidizes spay/neuter surgeries for qualifying pet owners.
