Shelter Transfer — How Partnerships are Saving Lives (Part 3/6)
SPCA Medical Director Dr. Bledsoe-Nix carefully performs a veterinary assessment on each new pet transferred to SPCA Wake.
Watch the full short video above to hear from Andy Smith, Director of Public Health and shelter manager for Northampton County — like many, a rural shelter with limited space to meet the entire county's pet needs — on how important these partnerships are in saving lives when the shelter fills up.
You'll also hear from SPCA Wake Senior Director of Operations Kim Flowers on SPCA Wake's mission and vision for how your support can help these partnerships can continue to grow and expand in order to save the pets most at risk.
These lifesaving partnerships are only possible thanks to the generous support of animal lovers in our community who donate to SPCA Wake to help fill the gaps between the need and available services.
With your help, we will continue moving toward a future where every pet can find a loving home, and every pet can get the medical or behavioral resources they need to have the healthy and happy life they deserve. The number of pets euthanized in our state is decreasing each year, and by collaborating together as agencies and individuals, we will reach a point where no healthy and adoptable animal has to be euthanized in North Carolina.
Make a donation today to help expand and support programs like these.
SPCA Wake is a 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. Each year, your support helps to save the lives of over 4,000 cats, dogs, and small pets through our rescue and adoption program. Our mission is to create a humane community for pets and people, to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets, and to change the hearts and minds of people across North Carolina.
