Carteret County Animal Control is considering updating their animal control laws and wants feedback from county residents.

From now until August 31, residents have the opportunity to take a brief online survey to provide input.  The current ordinance and any amendments will only apply to unincorporated areas of the county.  Cities and towns in Carteret County have their own separate animal control laws.

This is an excellent opportunity for dog owners and breeders in the county to have a voice before an ordinance is drafted.  AKC encourages Carteret County residents to visit the county health department’s website and take the online survey before the August 31 deadline.

AKC Government Relations will continue to monitor and provide updates when available.  For more information, contact AKC GR at
