Orange County's Animal Services Center is an open-door facility and operates both intake and adoption services. We are open to the public 6 days a week at our Animal Services Center, located at 1601 Eubanks Road in Chapel Hill.
Animal Services has animals available for adoption, and also partners with area rescue organizations to place as many animals as possible with loving homes. We provide Animal Control services to the unincorporated portion of Orange County and Hillsborough and are responsible for enforcing State and County laws that apply to animals (including cruelty laws, nuisance animals and dangerous wildlife). We also manage licensing and offer low-cost rabies clinics, spay/neuter programs and other services.
