In response to a recent outbreak of canine influenza, the Wake County Animal Center is taking proactive steps to ensure the health and safety of animals and the community. The shelter will be closed to the public from Friday, Oct. 6 for an undetermined length of time to help contain the outbreak. The center will stop accepting animals to prevent new cases and protect the dogs currently being cared for at the shelter.Learn more
The Wake County Animal Center offers rabies clinics, microchip clinics, offsite adoption events and more! We also help to publicize local rabies and microchip clinics offered by community partners.
Rabies & Microchip Clinic Information
- Rabies vaccines are $5

- All pets must be restrained at the clinic (either by a leash or in a carrier)
