We rely on the generosity of businesses and individuals
for donations to sell at our auction.

We are seeking gift cards, certificates for experiences, certificates for an item personally made for the winner, basket of items put together by your business, new electronics, and much more. We prefer new items unless the items are vintage, gently used designer handbags, or artwork. They do not need to be animal related items. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Items may be emailed—gift certificates specifically, mailed to the Friends Of Wake County Animal Center at 3203 Canoe Brook Pkwy, Raleigh, NC 27614, or other arrangements can be made for pick up by contacting us directly at friendsofwcac@outlook.com. We ask that you complete an IN KIND donation form, so that we may properly acknowledge your donation. Electronic forms may be obtained by contacting auctionfriendsofwcac@outlook.com.

All businesses who donate will be acknowledged on our Auction site as well as on our Friends Of Wake County Facebook page, which has almost 28,000 likes.

We are so very grateful for your support. On behalf of the animals of the Wake County Animal Center, Wake County families, and our volunteers, we thank you.
