All I wanted was to be wanted. To be loved.

My name is Toby and I lived with a family for a long time, but for some reason, they grew tired of me and gave me to another family. But I knew in my heart we were meant to be together, so I walked 12 miles back to them. When I arrived, I was met with unhappy faces and heartbreak. My family took me to a local shelter and asked them to euthanize me.

Luckily, the shelter called the SPCA of Wake County to see if they would help me find a loving home. They said YES and now I have a new home where I am wanted and loved. Oh and bonus... I'm famous now, having been on TODAY.com, PEOPLE.com, Daily Mail, Love Meow and many more.

But now I want to do more, so my new owner created an SPCA Dog Walk Team, so we can help more pets like me because I'm just one of 3,500 animals the SPCA of Wake County serves and saves each year!  

It is only due to donations, from people like you, that the SPCA is able to help so many pets. They're saving more animals than ever before and providing an unprecedented amount of help to families struggling to keep their four-legged companions. This is why the SPCA needs our help.  Every single animal they save is because of people like you who care about homeless pets.
