​Older is Better This Month at the Wake County Animal Center

Dogs and cats eight years and older available at reduced rate in November

You may have heard the adage that some things get better with age. At the Wake County Animal Center, we like to think that pets are no exception. Throughout the month of November, the center will make it easier for potential pet owners to find the perfect pet for their lifestyle.

In celebration of November as Adopt a Senior Pet Month, cats and dogs eight years 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. Many adult cats and dogs are already housetrained, and perfect for people or families who don’t have the time or resources to train a kitten or puppy.

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.

Of the animals age eight and older available for adoption, there are currently four cats and three dogs at the animal center, as well as seven dogs in foster care. And, remember – 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.
