We know you've always wanted a cat and now may be the time! We are here to help you get ready for your new family member as soon as you're ready to take the big plunge. Owning an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do.


We work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our furbabies here at Carolina Animal Protection Society of Onslow County, Inc. But we can't do it without people like you. If you ever feel like you want to be a part of our family and help some of the best animals around, check us out!

CAPS welcomes dedicated individuals to volunteer to help with the daily tasks of caring for its cats. We'd love to have you on our team of caring professionals!


COVID-19 and Animals
(Source: Center for Disease Control)

  • Scientists do not know the exact source of the current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), but they know that it originally came from an animal, likely a bat.
  • At this time, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low.
  • More studies are needed to understand if and how different animals could be affected by COVID-19.
  • Scientists are still learning about this virus, but it appears that it can spread from people to animals in some situations.
