​Give a Pet a Home this Holiday Season

Gift certificates now available, adoption special starts Dec. 16

Is there a special person in your life who would love a new pet? Perhaps the thought of giving a homeless pet a home fills you or someone you know with holiday joy? No matter what your gifting plans are this year, the Wake County Animal Center has ways you can make these wishes come true.

Gift Certificates
For the first time, gift certificates are available for purchase at the Wake County Animal Center. Gift certificates can be purchased for any dollar amount and redeemed within a year for the adoption of a pet from the center. This is the perfect gift for the person in your life who wants to pick out a new pet. Any amount left over after the adoption will be donated to the Wake County Animal Center.

The certificates are not just great gifts for the holidays. They are available year-round for birthdays and other special occasions. Buy one today at the Wake County Animal Center.

Home for the Holidays Adoption Special
As you make your list this holiday season, there are pets in Wake County in need of the ultimate gift—a home.

During the Home for the Holidays Adoption special, which runs from Dec. 16 until Dec. 22, cats and dogs six months and older will be available for adoption at 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 the pet is like in a home environment.

Pet Sponsorship
Looking for another way to help the homeless animals of the community? Consider sponsoring a pet. As a sponsor, you can help a pet at the Wake County Animal Center find a new home by prepaying a portion of their adoption fee.

Learn about other ways you can help the Wake County Animal Center on our website.
