Animal Control

Animal Control consists of three animal control officers who patrol Edgecombe County and respond to calls from citizens dealing with domesticated animals. Animal Control’s daily operations are overseen by a Lieutenant in the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office. The animal control officers patrol the county Monday thru Friday, and are on call nights, weekends, and holidays to respond to emergency animal calls.

The Animal Shelter is located behind the Edgecombe County Health Department at 2909 N Main St. in Tarboro.
