SPECIAL STATEMENT ABOUT THE BULLDOGS RECENTLY SEIZED IN CHAPEL HILL: We are receiving hundreds of inquiries about adopting these dogs. We'd like to thank everyone for contacting us about adopting. These dogs are not currently available for adoption.

They are also not currently available for fostering or viewing. 

Unfortunately, we do not currently have the resources to keep any kind of wait list and notify individuals when the dogs are made available. When they are made available, we will let the public know via news media outlets and an update on our website. A civil judgment that surrenders custody of the dogs to Orange County Animal Services is in process. However, the dogs will continue to be held in custody at OCAS while the Office of the District Attorney assures that information and evidence critical to its criminal cases are satisfactorily gathered prior to the rehoming of the dogs. Animal Services will provide ample public notice of the rehoming process once that information is determined. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to care for these animals. Taking in so many dogs at once has put a strain on our resources at Animal Services. If you would like to donate to animal care at our shelter, please go to this page for more information: https://www.orangecountync.gov/364/Donations
