It’s called getting them “fixed”
for a reason. Animal shelters across Wake County receive hundreds of litters of kittens and puppies each year. Most are not born in the streets, but are usually the unplanned litters from a family pet that got out “just that one time.”
More than 17,000 unwanted, homeless or lost animals ended up in Wake County shelters over the past year.
More than half were euthanized because there wasn’t enough shelter space, or because they had health or behavioral problems.
You can help fix the pet overpopulation problem and the thousands of animals that are euthanized each year in our community. Spay or neuter your own pet and share the message with your friends, family and neighbors.
Donate to help end pet overpopulation!
If your pet is spayed or neutered, but you would like to help end pet overpopulation, we need financial support to offer low cost spay/neuter vouchers. Call the Wake County Animal Center at 919-212-PETS (7387) to donate by credit card or mail donations to:
