Adopting a Pet | Burlington, NC - Official Website - City of Burlington
The Pet Adoption Center is located on Stone Quarry Road, one mile past Cum Park Plaza off North Church in Burlington, NC. We are located just off Highway 70 East. From Downtown Burlington, travel Hwy.70 East toward Haw River. After entering the Haw River incorporated city limits travel to the next stoplight (Quarry Rd.) and take a left. Travel approximately one half mile and the shelter is on the right.
Since 2001, we have been able to rescue homeless or abused dogs and cats. The numbers of animals we save depends on funds we have available to cover the cost of rescue as well as volunteers willing to act as foster parents until permanent homes can be found. We are very fortunate to house some of our foster cats and kittens in cubbies at the Petsmart Adoption Center located on University Drive in Burlington.

But the Burlington Animal Shelter bears the brunt of the strays, and each municipality in Alamance County helps pay for the facility to be run. Senior Ben Lutz has volunteered at the Burlington Pet Adoption Center on several occasions with an on-campus organization called the Animal Protection Alliance (APA), housed under Elon Volunteers! APA brings Elon students to the shelter to play with the animals there, to everyone's benefit.
