The animals are coming and going all the time at the Wilkes County Animal Shelter!

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

These cats were available for adoption at the time they were posted at Wilkes County Animal Shelter at 408 Call Street, Wilkesboro, NC, 336-903-7688. Cats may be adopted or rescued and leave the shelter at any time. Therefore, if you are interested in a particular cat 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 cat 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 cats 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 $75.00, or $50.00 if the cat is already spayed or neutered. 

This fee pays for the following:

  1. Physical examination
  2. A check for worms and routine deworming for hookworms and roundworms
  3. The first in a series of feline distemper and upper respiratory vaccines.
  4. Rabies vaccine at 4 months
  5. Spay or Neuter at 4-6 months
