Adoptable Pets of the Week
"Time spent with cats is never wasted." --Sigmund Freud


Cat of the Week--"Tinkerbell"--ID#1117214
Tinkerbell
"Tinkerbell"--ID#1117214
Purr!  I'm Tinkerbell, and I'm only about 6 months old.  I'm a pretty calico kitty who came to the shelter as a stray.  I'm hoping to find my "furever" home in time for the holidays.  I'm a sweet little gal who loves people, and I love to play, too. I bet you would love to have a nice lap warmer like me on these chilly evenings!   I hope you will come down and meet me today. 

Love and Meows, Tinkerbell (") (")

PS:  Just in case you couldn't tell...I am the cutie on the right in the photo! :-)  How do you like my bestest friend, Lucky?  Isn't she pretty?  Lucky is so quiet.  She likes sitting on top of the pumpkin!

Tinkerbell is one of the many beautiful cats and kittens who are waiting to find their "furever" homes at Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP) and their off-site center at Petsmart Franklin Road in Roanoke.  Stop by or make an appointment to meet them today and find out just what Sigmund Freud meant when he said, "Time spent with cats is never wasted"!

Who is RCACP?

The Regional Center for Animal Control & Protection (RCACP) is an open intake facility accepting stray and lost animals from animal control officers and the public, as well as owner relinquished pets, from the City and County of Roanoke, the County of Botetourt, and the Town of Vinton. The RCACP posts pictures of lost or strayed animals on their website, www.rcacp.org, to make it possible to search for a lost pet online. The website also contains a lost and found database that allows someone who has lost a pet, or someone who has found a pet, to post information on the animal to help reunite the pet with his/her family.

Adopting a Friend

Once an animal has passed his/her required holding time at the facility to allow the owner to reclaim him/her, the RCACP works with the Roanoke Valley SPCA, rescue groups and other shelters to place available animals in suitable homes. Animals who are housed at the RCACP that are posted on the Petfinder.com website have been deemed available and can be seen by visiting the center Monday - Friday between 11:30 - 5:30 pm and Saturday 11:30 - 4:00 pm. Once an adoption request is placed, an appointment will be made to complete the adoption through the RVSPCA. Each will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being adopted. To place an adoption or rescue request, or for more complete information, please email us at  or call (540) 344-4922. Be sure to give us the animal's ID number to assure your name is on the right pet.
