Employment Opportunities

Why join the SPCA family?

The SPCA of Wake County is doing important things for homeless pets across North Carolina, so a position with the SPCA isn’t just a job. It’s an opportunity to make a difference. You’ll also have support from really cool coworkers (We’re not kidding – we have ugly sweater contests! What’s cooler than that?). Other benefits include reasonably priced health insurance, a retirement plan, and generous paid vacation/sick time. And where else can you cuddle a puppy on your lunch break? Talk about workplace benefits.

Applicants are considered for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, or the presence of a non-job-related medical condition or disability.
