The SPCA of Wake County operates two separate animal shelters and a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Each facility serves a different purpose.

  • The SPCA Pet Adoption Center in Raleigh is the facility to visit if you are looking to add a pet to your home through our adoption program.
  • The SPCA Holding Center in Garner is the intake facility for all animals entering our adoption program. It is not open to the public. If you are looking to give up your pet, you must make an appointment with the SPCA Holding Center.
  • The Saving Lives Spay/Neuter Animal Clinic, an initiative of the SPCA, is located at 300 Petfinder Lane beside the SPCA Adoption Center. It provides high-quality, affordable spay/neuter surgeries for pets by appointment only.
