Traps for dogs and cats are set at the discretion of the Animal Services Center and are on an as available basis. A waiting period normally applies due to demand.
Citizens may request traps by either calling (252) 637-4606 or by visiting the Animal Services Center. Under most circumstances citizens must also pick up and return the traps.
Wildlife traps are also set at the discretion of the Animal Services Center most often in cases of risk to public safety due to a bite, exposure or injured animal.
Citizens may set their own traps for wildlife destroying property. These traps are subject to the approval by the North Carolina Wildlife Commission. Please note that these traps are illegal unless approved by the Wildlife Commission.
