Are you sure you were at the SPCA, off Tryon Road? They do not take animals directly from the public, but also are a no-kill shelter. Here is their page on surrendering animals.
SPCA of Wake County: SPCA of Wake County FAQ about No-Kill

The SPCA usually refers people to the Wake County Animal Center office off New Bern Ave. They will take all animals, but often have to make tough decisions as to who gets to stay and for how long. Here is their page on surrendering animals

If euthanasia bothers you, couldn't you list it on an adoption site? Just include some tear jerking story and some bleeding heart who doesn't understand that animals defecate, make noise, and destroy stuff will come running to take care of it..

Please tell them you fear for cats safety and above all get help for your son before he starts hurting people. There is a correlation.

I have been out of the home for 7 months, and the cat has only been there for 4 months.

I have suggested to my husband that when he calls a few more places tomorrow that he informs them of the situation. Maybe they might reconsider taking the cat. As tempting as it sounds, I am not going to lie and say we found the cat.

About getting my son help...as I said he has refused. When he was under age, and I was still living in the home, we had him in counseling. He was even on medication for a short time but it caused some undesirable side effects, so he stopped taking it and has refused to try anything else. The counselor felt he could not offer much help because my son would not stop smoking weed long enough for a proper assessment to be done. I wanted to send him to a teen challenge type program but the kids have to be willing to go...can't force them. I gave him an ultimatum to go or leave our home. He chose to leave and came back the following morning and talked my husband into letting him come back inside, promising he would go to teen challenge. Once inside he changed his mind about going. My husband refused to make him leave again. Long story short, I no longer live there, as I have said.

I have probably shared way too much already, so if you don't mind, could we please just keep this thread about the cat. Thank you.

The link brings you to the one on Beacon Lake Dr. which has refused it.

Maybe ask at local vets' offices to see if you can hang a flyer advertising a free cat. I see those sometimes when I take my dog in for his check ups. I'm not sure how much good they do but at least it's trying something with your target audience.

Give Purr Partners at the Wake Forest Petsmart a call.
Unfortunately right now there are so many kittens that the rescues are on overload.

I have had luck with putting ads on Craigslist.
