Wake Animal Center at capacity, asking rescue groups for help

April 5, 2013 

The adoption floor at the Wake County Animal Center is at capacity for dogs and officials there are asking for a little help from their rescue partners.

Rescue partners, which are approved 501c3 animal rescue groups, can take adoptable dogs from the center on Saturday without paying any of the regular “pull fees.”

Rescue groups are asked to contact their assigned coordinators for more information or go to the Wake County Animal Center at 820 Beacon Lake Drive, in Raleigh on Saturday at noon.

The adoption center is also open to the public, operating seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m.

The center is also hosting a free rabies clinic and health fair on Saturday starting at 9 a.m.. The rabies clinic will end at noon and the health fair ends at 1 p.m. Owners are asked to bring proof of prior rabies vaccines. Vaccines are limited to a first come, first served basis. All cats must be in carriers and all dogs must be on leashes.
