Thanks to your votes, Petside will be awarding $5,000 to the Carteret County Humane Society Animal Shelter located in Newport, North Carolina. The shelter is a not-for-profit facility that takes in stray or lost pets and takes animals relinquished by owners in the county the shelter resides in.
Like many shelters, Carteret County Humane’s mission is to help as many animals as they can, and they work tirelessly to help adopt out the pets that they come across, partnering with local and out of state rescue groups alike to find forever-loving homes for animals in need. They are helping change the world, one animal life at a time.
