Outreach & Rescue

Austin vet outreach and rescue is committed to improving animal health in our community

We are a 501c organization dedicated to the health and welfare of animals in our community. We strive to provide affordable care for people's pets as well as rescuing those pets without homes.


We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals in eastern NC. Our mission is to help provide affordable veterinary care, including spay and neuter, for pet owners in Carteret County. In addition to helping pet owners, we also help find forever homes for homeless animals in eastern NC.

Our board members are made up of a diverse group of animal lovers committed to the health and welfare of animals in eastern NC. We are a volunteer-based organization working in our time off from our "real" jobs to help animals in need.

Our current veterinarians are Dr. Sara Austin and Dr. Sam Schmitt of Austin Veterinary Animal Hospital. Dr. Austin graduated from NCSU in 2010 and has worked in rescue and low-cost spay/neuter since 2012. She has dedicated her life and passion to "those in need". Dr. Sam joined Austin Veterinary in 2014 and has quickly jumped on board with the mission. Both veterinarians are highly skilled at surgery and will provide top-notch care for your pets.

We have cats and dogs available for adoption through our organization. Our Facebook page has the most up-to-date info on our adoptable animals. See below for a full list of our available pets.

Spay & Neuter

We are providing low-cost clinics for dogs and cats to be spayed and neutered through our new state-of-the-art mobile spay/neuter clinic. Our doctors are highly skilled in spay and neuter and have had advanced training in high-quality surgery techniques.
