“If you’re looking for a soulmate, we’ve got the best matchmakers on staff,” said Dr. Jennifer Federico, director of the Wake County Animal Center. “We get to know our pets’ unique personalities and peculiarities, so we can pair you up with perfect pet for your lifestyle.”

Give Your Valentine a Gift Certificate
Looking for the perfect present for your favorite animal lover? Skip the roses this Valentine’s Day and give the gift of unconditional love with a gift certificate to the Wake County Animal Center!

Rather than surprising someone with an animal – and all the financial and time commitments that come along with owning a pet – gift certificates allow recipients to pick out a pet when the timing’s right.

Gift certificates are available for any dollar amount and may be redeemed for the adoption of pets within a year of purchase. Any amount left over after the adoption will be donated to the shelter.
