Founded in Raleigh in 1967, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Wake County (SPCA Wake) is an independent, 501 (c)(3) animal welfare organization and shelter, serving the central and eastern regions of NC. Our mission is to transform the lives of pets and people through protection, care, education, and adoption. Funded by charitable support, SPCA Wake provides vital community programs that pick up where local government agencies leave off. For 53 years, we have provided comprehensive support services to companion animals in need with sheltering, care and adoption. SPCA Wake also provides people-focused programs that help keep families and pets together, including large scale spay/neuter services, affordable access to basic pet vaccines and preventative care, pet food/supplies assistance, a professional pet behavior network, disaster relief and response efforts, and youth education programs that promote empathy.
