— Some pets will soon have a new temporary home in Wake County.

Starting Mar. 30, the

SPCA of Wake County

will open its new adoption center off Tryon Road. The $3.9 million facility incorporates the latest shelter features from across the country.

Officials said the animals will not be in cages, but they will be in group housing. Experts say that helps socialize the dogs and cats.

The new shelter will also feature a revolutionary design and a no-kill philosophy.
