Events!

The Wake County Animal Center offers rabies clinics, microchip clinics, offsite adoption events and more!  We also help to publicize local rabies and microchip clinics offered by community partners.  Check out the calendar below for all upcoming events!

Rabies & Microchip Clinic Information

  • Rabies vaccines are $5
  • Microchips are $10
  • All pets must be restrained at the clinic (either by a leash or in a carrier)
  • For a 3 year rabies vaccine, you must be written proof of prior vaccination - rabies tags alone will not be accepted as proof
  • Payment is by cash or check ONLY

Note:  Some clinics are sponsored by groups other than the Wake County Animal Center. They are posted on this page for the community to be aware.  Fees may be different than the prices listed above and any deviation will be included in the event description. 

Adoption Specials at the Animal Center

The Animal Center holds a number of adoption specials throughout the year.  The details of each special will be included in the event description, along with the adoption special fees.  

Offsite Adoption Events

Currently all of our offsite adoption event activities are suspended due to COVID-19.  Please check back periodically for additional information.

During the year, the Wake County Animal Center may host or participate in off site adoption events. Please check our Events Calendar for any upcoming events in detail.
