Mission

We are a 501c3, community outreach that works to support and create bridges between local animal rescues and community members who are trying to help animals in need. Our long-term goal is to reduce pet homelessness in New Hanover county, and surrounding communities. We will accomplish this goal by, working with individuals in our community, as well as other community non-profits to help keep pets in their current home. We will primarily focus our efforts on companion animals but will spread awareness of issues impacting livestock and wildlife.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Wilmington Animal Centrix is aiming to accomplish the following:

1. Reduce the number of homeless pets in Southeastern North Carolina
2. Reduce the number feral cats in Southeastern North Carolina by TNR (trap neuter release)
3. Raise community awareness on the problem of pet overpopulation
4. Provide food and litter to pet parents in need
5. Sponsor humane education programs
6. Offer pet behavior modification support to families
7. Create bridges between already established animal rescues

Wilmington Animal Centrix’s strategies for accomplishing our goals:

1. Provide spay/neuter vouchers to pet parents in need
2. Run a TNR (trap neuter release) program to reduce the feral cat population
3. Hold pet food and litter drives to support the local pet food pantry and local rescues
4. Develop a humane education program
5. Develop a pet behavior modification program
6. Offer education classes on TNR
7. Hold events where local rescues can bring pets up for adoption

We pay for the spay/neuter vouchers from funds we receive through grants and donations. We have a unpaid four person board who are very active in planning, running and attending events as well as applying for grants and fund raising. We also have members who volunteer their time to create flyers and graphics and assist with events as well as many other tasks.

Wilmington Animal Centrix’s accomplishments in 2020:

1. Gave out 251 spay/neuter vouchers with 58 of these including trap and release packages
2. Distributed 1800+ pounds of pet food to local rescues
3. Recruited 19 foster homes for rescue pets
4. Helped 78 homeless pets into foster homes and rescues
