​Wake County Celebrating Adopt a Shelter Cat Month with Adoption Special

Volunteers needed to help foster kittens

The Wake County Animal Center, like many other animal shelters in the area, sees an influx of cats during the spring and summer months. June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, and the Wake County Animal Center is continuing its mission to find these cats their forever homes.

On Wednesdays during the month of June, people can adopt cats age six months or older at whatever price they choose. Adult cats make great pets because they have already developed their personalities and behaviors.

Of the animals available for adoption, there are approximately 27 adult cats at the center, as well as approximately 14 currently in foster homes. View the Wake County Animal Center Adoption Gallery to see all animals available for adoption.

Need for Kitten Fosters
The Wake County Animal Center is also seeking volunteers who can care for kittens in their homes. Kittens are not available for adoption until they are at least eight weeks old and weigh two pounds. Because kittens are susceptible to illness, stress and parasites, fosters are needed to bottle feed and care for kittens to make sure they become strong and healthy enough to be adopted.

To learn more about fostering kittens and other animals, visit the Wake County Animal Center website.
