SPCA of Wake County

About: The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County is dedicated to creating a more humane community where every adoptable animal has a home. Each year the SPCA rehomes over 3,400 animals through its innovative adoption programs. The SPCA of Wake County is a local, independent, non-profit organization that receives no government funding or tax dollars. The mission statement of the SPCA remains as relevant now as it was when it was written in 1967: To protect, shelter and promote the adoption of homeless animals; to provide education about responsible pet ownership and to reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs.

Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteers are vital to caring for the animals at the SPCA and ensuring they find forever homes quickly. Volunteer opportunities include office tasks, cleaning, laundry, and directly interacting with the cats, dogs and bunnies in our care to keep them healthy and clean. We also need volunteers to help with fundraising events and animal adoption events. Find out more about volunteer opportutnities at: http://spcawake.org/get-involved/volunteer/
