SPCA of Wake County waives pet adoption fees for military families

May 26, 2019 GMT

The SPCA of Wake County is offering military families and veterans the chance to bring home a new, furry family member at no cost over Memorial Day weekend.

Between Saturday and Memorial Day, families and individuals who present a military ID can take home an adult animal without having to pay an adoption fee.

“We know companion animals bring so much joy to a home,” said Darci VanderSlik, communications director at the SPCA. “We want to honor our service men and women by waiving adoption fees on adult pets as a small way we can say ‘thank you’ for your service and help these families enjoy the love of an animal.”


The SPCA of Wake County will also offer half-off all adoption fees on adult pets year-round for military members and veterans when they show their military ID.

The SPCA is located at Petfinder Lane in Raleigh. A list of adoptable animals and more information can be found online.

Hours for the holiday weekend include Sunday and Monday from 1-6 p.m.
