Wake County Animal Control maintains jurisdiction over all dogs, cats, and other pets in the Town of Wake Forest. For complete information concerning animal control policies, refer to the Wake County Animal Control Ordinance.
Please note that Wake Forest does not require pets to be licensed. However, all pet owners are strongly urged to comply with North Carolina law and keep their pet's rabies vaccinations current. In order to promote vaccinations, the Wake County Animal Care, Control and Adoption Center offers low-cost rabies clinics, where each pet can be vaccinated for $5.
