Animal Control Division
The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control division is responsible for investigating animal cruelty, enforcing existing animal control laws, further investigating animal bites, enforcing rabies tag violations and managing stray animals.
In addition to enforcement, we also operate the Cabarrus County Animal Shelter.
The shelter is a public facility that provides safe temporary shelter for animals without permanent homes. In addition to adoptions, the animal shelter provides a variety of services. The shelter is NOT a pet boarding facility.
Any animal that presents to the shelter as a stray is held for 72 hours per the Department of Agriculture. These animals can be viewed on lost and found. Any animal that presents as an owner surrender is not required to be held for 72 hours. Animals are evaluated upon intake and receive a second evaluation before an adoption / rescue / euthanasia decision is made.
NOTE: Animal Control does not remove wildlife from basements, crawl spaces, attics, drains or natural habitats. NC State Wildlife provides all wildlife trapping rules, and can be reached at 1-800-662-7137.
