Hyde County Animal Control

Being a rural community Hyde County has gone years without Animal Control, other than Emergency situations where the Hyde Sheriff's Department was call in.

There are no veterinary services located in Hyde County. In April of 2006, JM Eakes became certified to provide Rabies and Vaccination shots to Hyde County Residents and pursued the establishment an official animal shelter for Hyde County.

On August 1st of 2007 JM Eakes was appointed Animal Control Officer for Hyde County. JM Eakes is a retired North Carolina Forestry Service Officer of 33 years, including being awarded a "Heroism Award" by the Humane Resources Division of NC Forestry.

JM's mission is:

To Prevent Cruelty to Animals.
Reunite lost Pets with Owners.
Provide Rabies & Vaccination shots to Hyde County Resident pets.
Assist the Public with low cost Spay & Neutering.
Provide a safe and clean facility to house lost and homeless animals.
Find loving homes for the homeless animals of Hyde County.
Enforce the animal control ordinances and laws of Hyde County.
Educate the Public on the welfare and responsible ownership of pets.
Relocation of healthy wildlife to their natural habitat.

Since JM started his one man operation, he as picked up over 2,000 animals. He has organized 9 Spay and Neuter Clinics at the Hyde County Animal Shelter. Over 150 dogs & cats have been spayed and neutered.

JM has to appear in Hyde County Court on behalf of 8 animal cruelty cases & currently has 2 pending.

October of 2008 JM was called to the Bardge Canal at the Grain facility owned by Ben Simmons. There was a report of a large alligator being around the grain tanks. When JM arrived the alligator was under the grain elevation belt. NC Wildlife officers were on location when JM arrived. JM assisted the Wildlife officers in removing the alligator from the grain tanks and relocating it to the Bardge Canal.

Not long after the alligator incident, the Hyde County Department of Corrections called on a Sunday morning reporting a rattle snake under the modular unit at the facility. JM removed the rattle snake form the facility and released the (10 rattled) rattle snake at the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge.

JM currently has 19 dogs and 2 kittens in his care at the Hyde County Animal Shelter.

Most of our Blog followers will remember "Foo Foo" the bunny rabbit that won the East Lake Township placement for the Outer Banks SPCA 2009 Outer Banks Pet Calendar coming out soon. http://pamperedpetsguide.blogspot.com/2008/10/outer-banks-spca-2009-calendar-winners.html No, Foo Foo did not attend the 9th Annual Howl-oween Costume Pawrade & Pawty, but Foo Foo's sister who is a Pit Bull, did. Darla had a Great time lose playing inside with all the dozens of doggies that attended this great Outer Banks Pet Event. No Discrimination Here :-)

We thought it was appropriate to mention "Darla" the pit bull, as October 25th is also "Pit Bull Awareness Day". You can see more information on Pit Bull Awareness Day on the Pampered Pets Guide Blog http://pamperedpetsguide.blogspot.com/2008/10/pit-bull-awareness-day-oct-25th-2008.html

Ms. Susan, owner of Salty Paws Homemade Biscuits really went all out for the 9th Annual Howl-oween Costume Pawrade & Pawty. She must have been cooking all night, there were pumpkin shaped treats, bone shaped treats, and about 6 flavors of very yummy square shaped treats that got gobbled up fast. Ms. Susan also gave each pampered pet that attended a special treat bag that had a ball and a nice magnet. Salty Paws Homemade Biscuits was also the largest donator to the raffle for the Coastal Humane Society.

The Coastal Humane Society also received raffle donations from: Cigarette City, David Henderson (Canine Massage), KDH Co-operative, and Puparrizi.

A special thank you goes out to Jennifer Snell who donated her time and talent to provide pet portrait photography at the 9th Annual Howl-oween Costume Pawrade & Pawty. 4 x 6 portraits were taken for a $5.00 donation to the Coastal Humane Society.
