The Twelve Strays of Christmas

Our Share the Love event last weekend featured the Twelve Strays of Christmas, twelve lovely and lovable dogs from Pitt County Animal Shelter. We're so pleased to tell you that eight of those "strays" have been adopted, and the remainder were transferred to HSEC where they will wait for their forever homes.

Let's meet them!

Candy Cane
Candy Cane is a young pit bull terrier mix with a sweet and shy personality. She loves beggin' strips, but not as much as she loves affection and attention from her people. Candy Cane will need a little time to warm up to new people, but once you open your heart to you, she'll return the favor! Although she does get along with other dogs, some patience will be needed to integrate her with a current dog. For that reason, we would recommend - but not require - that Candy Cane goes to a home where she is the only dog.

Hot Cocoa
Hot Cocoa is a six month old chocolate lab mix with a six month old's share of energy - and maybe a little more than his share! This enthusiastic, playful dog will need training and daily exercise. He would be perfect for an active owner with previous dog experience.

Snowflake is a young pit bull terrier mix who loves nothing more than to plop down for some quiet quality time with her people. And we think you'll agree she has the sweetest face! She is shy at first, but as soon as she gets used to you, she'll be climbing in your lap (literally). A true companion. Snowflake gets along with other calm medium to large dogs.

Clara is a pit bull terrier, about one year old, with a beautiful brindle coat. Looking for someone to share your adventures? Clara's the one for you! She is very energetic and loves activity. Clara gets along with other dogs.

All the "strays" are microchipped and have an adoption fee of $100. All dogs with the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are evaluated for temperament, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, on heartworm and flea prevention and tested for heartworms if one year or older. Their adoption comes with a bag of Hill's Science Diet and one month free trial of pet health insurance from ShelterCare. All dogs four months or older must leave with a collar with their rabies tag as a form of identification. You can either bring your own collar or purchase a collar (priced $2-$10) from HSEC.
