Please call the shelter before you go to see a particular dog. This page is updated several times a week; however, we can't guarantee that the dog you want hasn't already been adopted.

These dogs were available for adoption at the time they were posted at Wilkes County Animal Shelter at 408 Call Street, Wilkesboro, NC, 336-903-7688. Dogs may be adopted or rescued and leave the shelter at any time. Therefore, if you are interested in a particular dog you see on this page, please call the shelter to determine if it is still there before you go. (The date of the last update is at the bottom of the page.) If you are looking for a dog that may have been turned in as a stray, please visit or call the shelter regularly. This webpage does not post photographs of the stray dogs being held for their stray hold. Wilkes county animal services holds all strays for 72 hours before placing them up for adoption. We also recommend that you also check the Wilkes County NC Lost and Found Pets page on Facebook.

The Shelter is open for pet adoption.

The shelter's hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 10:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday. The adoption fee is $95.00 for dogs under 50 pounds and $105 for dogs 50 pounds and over. $50.00 if the dog is already spayed or neutered.

This fee pays for the following:

  1. Physical examination
