Animal Rescue > Animal Shelters
The mission of Down East Animal Refuge, Inc. (DEAR) is to improve the conditions and health of animals by rescuing strays and feral animals, promoting humane treatment and responsible pet ownership methodically through education and the law, and fostering compassion for all animals.
Down East Animal Refuge was incorporated in the state of North Carolina in November 2003, and hereafter is referred to as DEAR. The purpose of DEAR is to create a compassionate community, where there are no more stray, abandoned, and neglected animals and where euthanasia is not always necessary. DEAR will provide veterinary services in a region of North Carolina at affordable rates.
DEAR meetings take place on every second Thursday of the month in Scotland Neck, North Carolina. Public is invited to attend and participate.
