The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County was originally founded in 1969 to transform the region into a humane area where every animal could find a home. Today, it works toward this goal by sheltering and securing the adoption of more than 3,000 animals every year and providing lost-and-found services for missing pets. The organization also supports pet owners with classes to help them care for their animals and addresses the problem of overpopulation through catch-and-release spay or neuter programs.
Paws At Play supports pet owners with a variety of services from doggie daycare and cat boarding to pet grooming. During doggie daycare, pets get access to an indoor play gym, multiple outdoor play yards, and a dog pool. Overnight boarders can take advantage of these amenities before hunkering down in one of 38 private suites, which feature a window, adjustable feeding bowls, and raised bedding. The facility also boasts 18 private cat suites where felines can bask in natural sunlight and sway to the sounds of classical music. Separate ventilation systems prevent the smell of canine boarders from stressing out visiting cats.
Pup's Day Out makes visits especially cozy by providing extra attention, belly rubs, and games of fetch free of charge. Spread out across 7,000 square feet of space, the locally owned facility features no crates or kennels, granting dogs the liberty to run about with their friends under the surveillance of a pooch-loving staff. That same staff also provides various grooming services right on site, including haircuts, baths, and nail trimming.
The best reward for a newly groomed dog is a tasty treat. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming Wakefield provides both with its grooming stations and gourmet baked treats. Pets can stop in for a wash at the hands of a certified groomer or let owners do the dirty work at a self-service tub. A cornucopia of snacks, from peanut-butter bones to doggie donuts, awaits pooches in the retail store, where they'll also find animal outfits and regular food.
At Healthy Paws Animal Hospital, licensed veterinarians and their well-trained medical staff care for pets of all stripes, including dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles, and birds. Both of the animal hospital's locations are equipped with digital x-ray technology, onsite laboratories, and surgical facilities to handle anything from emergency care to routine medical and dental procedures and checkups.
