  • 1. Great Dedicated Staff

    by: Kingstondp

    The staff at the Outer Banks SPCA are very dedicated to the animals under their care, and are very honest in the assessment of them. They are friendly and excited when the animals are adopted. They were excellent with our dog prior to adoption.

  • 2. cat room

    by: boxcar

    these are some well taken care of kitties. it's a room large enough to run & play, jump & climb, sleep up high, or curl up in a quiet corner. most of the cats are allowed to roam freely around the room during the day. this makes a nice mid-day work break for me. although I have 3 cats at home I enjoy sitting on the provied bench & petting as many as will let me. there is always soothing music on the radio & the room is always clean.


    all of it

  • 4. Valentine Adoption Special - 2/9/08

    by: Toni7600

    My first visit was on 2/9/08. The center was having a Valentine special for people interested in adopting a pet and waived the registration fees. I went on line first and found several pets that my husband and I were interested in. They had cookies and refreshements set up for their open house. The facility was extremly clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions. We found an adorable puppy (Nathan) and filled out our application and turned in all required paperwork.\r\nLater on in the afternoon we said we could come back and pick up our new family member. We were so excited. During the check out process, the staff went over every little detail about the adoption agreement, follow up vet appointments, neutering, etc. We had no questions unanswered when we left.\r\nAwesome people to work with. I only wish I had more room to adopt a few more. Overall GREAT experience. THANKS TO ALL\r\n\r\n


    Dedicated and knowledgeable staff, very clean facility


    A more updated facility would be a plus for pets and staff

  • 5. A NC Shelter!

    by: lambrhondal

    I see that you have a small shelter, working on a shoe string budget. I've visited your area many times and know that you have a lovely county, like mine, but need help in reaching the furbabies. Thought I'd give you a boost!!

  • 6. Awesome place!

    by: dogaroundtown

    I love the OBXSPCA! I worked there in high school, and adopted my first dog Brownie from there. I also have volunteered there since before I can remember! I remember when the dogs had outside dog houses and lived on chains, and there were like 4 cat cages! What a transformation they have made! And its all thanks to donations and hard work effort from people in the community and state! lets keep our SPCA nice! Let them know how much we appreciate everything they do!





  • 7. I love Outer Banks SPCA!

    by: foytix

    I love going to the Outer Banks SPCA! It is the cleanest and friendliest shelter I have been to. I like that the cats have a nice glassed in room and are allowed to roam and play freely in there. I alsolike that you are required to sign in when you visit. These people truly care about the animals they are adopting out and it shows. They also take their animals our for adoption days in public areas. This greatly helps get the animals adopted. I have nothing but positive things to say about this shelter.


    Clean,friendly, nice cat room, large kennells

    by: sweetsugar

    Clean and well kept! There's also a little yard to play with the dogs. Their cages are a good size and always clean. (sorry, i can't say anything about the kitties - i'm allergic)\r\n\r\nThe staff is very friendly and helpful. \r\nWalk-ins are welcomed :)


    Friendly caring staff / cute dogs


    They need a makeover (hope y'all win)

  • 12. best little animal shelter in north carolina

    by: dalambiotte

    The staff of the OBXSPCA are the most dedicated group of animal lovers. Each animal is handeled with love and compassion. The staff gets to know all of the animals intimately and treat them if they were their own pet. There is such a high quality of cleanliness and organization. You don't even feel like you have walked into an animal shelter. Smiling faces and happy tails all the time. \r\n


    staff, cleanliness, feels like a doggie day care, healthy animals


    kennel flooring needs redone, automatic waters need installed, more room for the kitties

  • 13. a great place to stay!

    by: penosky

    The staff is very caring and professional. They work hard to not have to put animals down. One dog stayed there about 6 months before he found his forever family. They deserve the shelter makeover.


    Great Place to Stay


    it's an old garage

    This shelter is fantastic. It is staffed by caring & professional staff. I am an enthusiastic supporter of the shelter and its programs. I own Puparazzi! Pet Bow-tique in Manteo, and sponsor the Tail Waggin Tuesday program on Beach 104.
