Carteret County 4-H is sponsoring a quarterly county-wide service project in 2021. In March, youth collected children’s books as well as some adult books and placed them in Free Little Libraries across the county. Our September service project will be with Carteret Big Sweep and our December project will focus on our Military Troops.

During the month of June, Carteret County 4-H will collect needed supplies for the Carteret County Humane Society and the Outer Banks Wildlife Shelter. Donations can be dropped off at the 4-H Office which is located on the 3rd floor of the CMAST Building, 303 College Circle, Morehead City.

Carteret County Humane Society

The mission of the Carteret County Humane Society is to protect, shelter, and promote the adoption of homeless animals; to provide education about responsible pet ownership, and to reduce pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs.
