Tail Waggin’ Tuesday: February 13, 2024 – OBX Today

Tail Waggin' Tuesday: February 13, 2024 - OBX Today

Are you in search of the perfect fur-ever friend? A new addition to the family, perhaps? OBX Today in partnership with the Outer Banks SPCA is proud to present “Tail Waggin’ Tuesdays.”

Each Tuesday, browse our provided selection of videos and images and follow along as we showcase a variety of pets that are currently awaiting adoption at our local animal shelter.

This week’s featured pets are Squid, Camo, Faith, and Bella. Verbiage is provided by shelter manager Leann Saunders:


Squid is about 3 years old and was brought into our care from a high kill shelter where he was at risk for being euthanized due to lack of space. Squid came in with a poor skin condition but is currently being treated. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. He loves getting attention from everyone and gives the best hugs! He is very gentle and keeps his kennel very clean!
Camo & Faith
Camo and Faith were sadly surrendered into our care as a last resort for this family. Their previous family is in the hospital while he is undergoing a liver transplant and has to remain in the hospital for the next 4-6 weeks. With no family locally and boarding being so expensive they knew we would provide their dogs with the best care possible and are taking a risk with them being available for adoption. While we don’t want any animal to be here for that long we are reaching out to see if anyone would be willing to foster over this time so that they could be returned to their family. Camo is about 2 years old and  Faith is about 4 both of them were previously adopted from our shelter!
Bella is an 8 year old Lab! She was purchased from a breeder back in 2016. She was surrendered into our care due to no fault of her own. Her previous family could not make time for her with their work schedule. Bella is house trained, up to date on vaccines, spayed, microchipped, and loves to play fetch! We are hopeful we can find the best home possible for her to retire in.

To adopt a shelter animal, visit the Outer Banks SPCA Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., or give them a call at 252-475-5620.

This month’s sponsor of Tail Waggin’ Tuesday is Hatteras Island Pet Resort.
