​Help a Shelter Dog Find a Home this Month

Pit bulls and other dogs available for $25 in October

In celebration of National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and National Pitbull Awareness Month, the Wake County Animal Center is making it easy for you to adopt a dog in need of a loving home. 

During the month of October, all pitbulls and other select dogs will be available for adoption from the Wake County Animal Center for $25 instead of the regular adoption fee of $45 for an already spayed or neutered dog. Pit bulls make up approximately 30 percent of the dogs the center takes in annually.

Currently, there are approximately 20 pitbulls at the center and approximately 10 in foster homes that are available for adoption. View the Wake County Animal Center Adoption Gallery to see all animals available for adoption.

The center understands that some apartments and rental homes have pet restrictions and has created a Pet Friendly Housing Guide for interested adopters. Potential adopters should also reach out to their landlords or apartment management directly to confirm any pet restrictions before adopting.
