Pet Behavior Help

The SPCA’s Pet Behavior Services

The SPCA of Wake County strives to create and support a lifelong bond between pets and their people. We believe in positive, reward-based training that strengthens the human/animal bond and builds trust between people and their pets.

Research shows that behavior issues are among the most common reasons pets are relinquished to animal shelters. We are working to change that.

It starts the moment an animal comes through our doors, when we assess each pet’s individual needs in order to provide the behavioral support necessary to get that pet ready for adoption.

It continues with our positive, conversation-based adoption process designed to help you find the pet that’s best for your personality, lifestyle and needs.

Our support continues even after adoption when we provide follow up, information and resources – even individual consultations if needed – to help adopters build that lifelong bond with their new pet.
