​Adopt a Cat during Cinco de Meow and Name Your Price

Special runs May 1-7

Holy guacamole! If you’ve been thinking about adding a feline to your family, there’s no better time than the Cinco de Meow adoption special. From Wednesday through May 7, you can name your price to adopt adult cats ages six months and older at the Wake County Animal Center.

There are lots of great reasons to welcome a cat into your life, said Dr. Jennifer Federico, director of the Wake County Animal Center.

“Cats are affectionate yet independent, so they make outstanding pets for folks with busy schedules,” she said. “And cats are perfect for apartments that allow pets, because they’re quiet, don’t require walks or regular baths, and can sleep up to 15 hours a day.”

Wake County has 17 cats in the shelter and another 16 in foster care hoping to find forever homes during Cinco de Meow.

Unlike kittens, adult cats have already settled into their unique personalities and behaviors, which eliminates a lot of the guesswork from the adoption process. Just ask our shelter staff, and they’ll be happy to pair you with a cat whose personality matches your preferences.

In addition to the animals in the shelter, be sure to check out the cats we have in foster care. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, these foster felines have already grown accustomed to living in a loving home, so they should have no trouble settling into your family.
