Active & Retired Military
Military and Veteran’s Benefits
Receive 50% off SPCA adoption fees on adult pets (ages one year and older) when you present your Military ID or a family dependent’s ID.
Special Adoption and Matchmaking Services
We know that veterans and military families often face unique challenges when it comes to housing and needs. Our Adoption Specialists are able to offer special assistance to veterans and military members to help find the right match for their family.
Post-Adoption Behavior Help
If requested, the SPCA can provide 1-on-1 pet behavior services for animals adopted from the SPCA or Wake County. We also have an extensive network of trainers to which we can offer referrals.
Pet food and Supplies
If a military member or veteran suddenly becomes in need of pet supplies or food in order to keep their pet, they can contact the SPCA of Wake County to see if they qualify for our Pet Food Assistance Program.
For veterans interested in volunteering, we offer an expedited volunteer process (just write “military” or “veteran” under special skills on application). If you are interested in volunteering, you can apply online.
Pet Re-homing Assistance
When needed, the SPCA can provide resources to deploying military personnel to assist them in the heartbreaking, but sometimes necessary, pet rehoming process.
