The SPCA of Wake County (Raleigh, North Carolina 27603) was founded in 1967, and is dedicated to creating a more humane community where every adoptable animal has a home. Each year the SPCA rehomes over 3,000 animals through its innovative adoption programs and lost and found efforts.

The guiding mission statement of the SPCA remains as relevant now as it was when it was written in 1967: To protect, shelter and promote the adoption of homeless animals; to provide education about responsible pet ownership and to reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs.
The SPCA of Wake County operates two animal shelters and each facility serves a different purpose. The first facility is the SPCA Curtis Dail Pet Adoption Center, located at 200 Petfinder Lane in Raleigh, which focuses on pet adoption and public education. The Adoption Center location does not accept any incoming animals.
The second facility operated by the SPCA is the SPCA Holding Center at 327 Highway 70 East in Garner. At this location, the SPCA accepts incoming animals from the public by appointment only. This limited intake policy is to keep the SPCA shelter from overflowing (and thus putting more animals at risk) by sharing these duties with the government-run Wake County Animal Shelter. This is done to benefit the animals and to ensure that precious resources allocated by local government for animals are used. Click here to read the SPCA’s intake policy. Additionally, the SPCA operates a program to reunite lost pets with their owners.
The SPCA is an autonomous organization and is not affiliated with or supported by any other SPCAs including the ASPCA. The SPCA is not a government-run organization. The SPCA of Wake County is a private, non-profit organization that serves the pets and people of the Wake County community.

Values

  • We believe old dogs contribute positively to our quality of life and have much to teach us about patience, respect, responsibility, loyalty and unconditional love.
  • We believe every senior dog deserves to live out their golden years, months, weeks or even days in a place of love, security and peace.
  • We believe dogs are not a disposable commodity; rather, they depend on us to care for them through all stages of their lives.
  • We believe at times it is appropriate to make an end-of-life decision based on a deteriorating quality of life or if the dog is harmful to itself or others.
  • We believe in working with diverse organizations from across the country that share our fundamental values.
  • We believe in honest and open decision making that allows us to be accountable to our donors and the organizations we support.
  • We believe in providing educational support, advocacy, and sharing of best practices for those who support senior dogs.

Red Dog Farm (Greensboro, North Carolina 27410) is the private residence of Garland and Gary Graham, who founded Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network.

Garland and Gary began fostering golden retrievers through Triad Golden Retriever Rescue in 2000, due to their love of their golden retriever named Rodney (a/k/a “the Red Dog”), who lived to be fifteen years old and is dearly missed. Soon enough, other dogs and cats began to find their way to Red Dog Farm, and they were fostered and adopted out as well. Once the barn was finished, farm animals in need began to move in. Some came for short periods of time until they were rehabilitated and adopted and others have become permanent residents.

In 2006, after privately fostering over 50 animals, Garland and Gary decided to start a nonprofit rescue network to allow others to foster and donate. Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to the rehabilitation, fostering, and adoption of animals of all sizes.
