Friends of Wake County Animal Center, also known as FWCAC, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for animals in our community and their human families. 

Through our fundraising efforts, we provide access to vital medical care, boarding and placement for shelter animals in need, thereby improving their health and reducing euthanasia rates at the center.  Our team also promotes adoption, safety, and responsible pet ownership via education and public outreach.  Finally, we provide support to local rescues, animals shelters, and adopters to help diminish the number of homeless animals.

Our organization got it's roots from a small group of volunteers who on July 29, 2012 decided to launch a Facebook Page to bring awareness to the animals at the Wake County Animal Center.

Over the years the need in the community has grow and so have we! As of August 19, 2016 Friends of Wake County Animal Center became a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
