Hours at the New Hanover County Animal Shelter are determined by staff availability, said Animal Control Supervisor Judy Evanko.
The shelter at 180 Division Drive, Wilmington [Map this], is open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. From 8 a.m. to noon, the staff is working with and cleaning the animals. Adoption hours are from noon to 4:45 p.m.
Evanko said that the shelter used to be open on Saturdays, but budget constraints led to a reduction in staff. Currently, one staff member works during the weekends cleaning the animals and their cages. There are no adoption hours during the weekend, even by appointment, Evanko said.
