Wake County Animal Care, Control & Adoption

I lost my pet – what do I do?
First, go to the Triangle Lost Pets website at www.trianglelostpets.org to post a lost pet listing. Stray animals found in Wake County are taken to the Wake County Animal Center, so check the Animal Center’s adoption gallery – and keep checking it every few days. The Wake County Animal Center holds stray animals for three to five business days before they are available for adoption. There are several other things you can do to find a lost pet, including distributing fliers and posting on Craigslist. Keep in mind that microchipping your pet before they leave home is the best way to ensure your pet will be returned to you.

I found a stray animal – now what?
First, go to a local vet or the Wake County Animal Center and check for a microchip – an electronic means of identification. If there is no microchip, go to the Triangle Lost Pets website and post a found pet listing. There are several other things you can do when you find a stray dog or cat, including distributing fliers and posting on Craigslist. If the animal was found within the city limits, contact the animal control agency for your city or town, and they will transport the stray to the Wake County Animal Center, or you can bring the animal to the Center when it is open. The Wake County Animal Center holds stray animals for three to five business days before they are available for adoption.

I need to find low-cost rabies shots/microchips.

I need to surrender my pet.
First, consider an alternative to surrendering your pet. There are many resources that can help with behavior problems, moving, military deployment, economic hardship, and other issues. If you must give up your pet and have no other option, consider keeping your pet until you can find a permanent home for the animal, or contact a rescue group. A shelter environment can be very stressful to an animal. If you cannot resolve the challenges you are having with your pet and you are unable to rehome your pet, please bring your pet to the Wake County Animal Center during normal business hours. Please bring your pet's vet records or some other proof of ownership.
