The Outer Banks SPCA seized more than 80 animals from a residence on Brinkly Drive in Wanchese, NC between 4/23/19 and 4/24/19. Species seized include dogs, cats, chickens, turkeys, goats, geese, two ponies, one horse, a pig, and more.

The investigation was launched after further complaints of animal cruelty were filed with the Outer Banks SPCA. Environmental conditions were extremely neglected, noxious, and unsafe leading to the removal of the animals. The search warrant and investigation was executed by team members from animal care staff and the Animal Control department of the Outer Banks SPCA as well as members of the Dare County Sheriff’s Office. The offices of Environmental Health and Dare County Social Services were also on site.

All animals removed are receiving care and treatment by the SPCA. The investigation remains open and charges have not yet been filled.

The Outer Banks SPCA is working hard to meet the individual needs of each of these eighty plus animals. If you are able to do so, please consider making a contribution. Donations can be made in person at the Dare County Animal Shelter, online via /donate, or mailed to: PO Box 2477
