Congratulations to Havelock High School Officials Tyiyon Johnson, recipient of the Do the Right Thing Award from the Havelock Police Department. Tyiyon has been through a lot the last two years and has kept his head held high through some difficult times. He has excelled as a starter for the Rams football team. Just recently, he excelled as a leader after discovering that substitute had not yet arrived in one of his classes. His classmates tried to persuade him not to inform the front office. Tyiyon ignored the peer pressure and  alerted the front office. Thank you, Tyiyon, for doing the Right Thing!

In response to ongoing concerns and citizen complaints, Havelock Animal Control will continue trapping stray/feral cats. The goal is not to collect pet cats, but to reduce the number of stray cats. With regard to pet cats, we are encouraging owners to gain greater control of their pets to reduce conflict in neighborhoods.
Date: February 24, 2017 - March 3, 2017
Location: E Sherwood Drive, Havelock, NC 28532
1. The purpose of this notice is to notify neighbors of trapping target areas so that they can focus on controlling their pets while we can collect strays. Additionally, pet owners can notify us with their contact info so we can call them if a pet cat is collected.
2. Pet owners will have their pet returned without a fine after the first occurrence (daily fee may apply.) Repeat occurrences will result in a fine.
3. If the collected cat is found to not be a pet, it will be handled in accordance with the current ordinance.
Please contact Animal Control at (252) 444-2712 with questions.

Why aren't there pictures of the stray cats on your animal shelter website so people can adopt them? Do you automatically euthanize them?

Thanks for all your hard work!!

I am happy to see this. I am sorry that it took 2 days of many phone calls and posting on social media to help get strays picked up after being told you would not pick them up!
