Adopt a Senior Pet at the Wake County Animal Center

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month. As part of this national observance, the Wake County Animal Center is offering an adoption special for adult cats and dogs looking for their "fur-ever" home.

For the month of November, cats and dogs eight years and older will be available for the following rates:

  • Dogs - $25
  • Cats – Name your price

Adult cats and dogs make great pets, because they have already developed their personalities and behaviors. If a cat or dog is coming from a foster home, potential owners will also know more about what he or she is like in a home environment.

Many adult cats and dogs are already housetrained and are perfect for people or families who don't have the time or resources to train a kitten or puppy.

There are currently three senior pets at the animal center, and 10 in foster care that are available for adoption, and the center receives new animals every day. View the WCAC online adoption gallery for an up-to-date look at the animals ready to call your house their home.

The Wake County Animal Center is an open-admission animal shelter operated by Wake County. The center receives all stray, abandoned and surrendered pets in the county and works in partnership with fosters, volunteers and local rescues, to treat and rehome thousands of homeless animals every year.
