Adoptable Pets of the Week
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he (she) loves himself (herself).” --Josh Billings


Dog of the Week--"Rugger"--ID#1123909
Rugger
"Rugger"--ID#1123909
A wise person once said, "Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog."  This week, we have a senior boy, Rugger, up for adoption. Rugger came to the shelter when his previous owner could no longer care for him.  He a black and white Collie mix who is about 8 years of age and is just the sweetest guy you'll ever meet. He gives the best doggie kisses and seeks out attention and affection from anyone he meets!  He does not seem to be possessive of his food or toys, and is indifferent to other dogs.  Rugger is ready to go to his new home today.  Could it be yours?  Come down to the shelter and meet him today!!

Rugger is currently staying at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP) and is in danger of euthanasia. If you are interested in saving this pet’s life by adopting, please contact the RCACP Adoption Coordinator at 540-344-4922, ext. 314 or email Roxy Brown at .

The RCACP's hours for adoption are 11:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Saturday. You may also submit an application by email. The application can be found at www.rcacp.org. Adoption requests are accepted by telephone: (540) 344-4922. You must submit an application along with your request to hold your place in the order requests are received. Before adoption, all pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested, and microchipped.  Thank you for saving a life!

Cat of the Week--"Batman"--ID#1118595
Batman
"Batman"--ID#1118595
Meow!  Have you ever dreamed of having a superhero in the family?  Well, here you go... I...am... Batman!  I'm a sweet and playful 8 month old little boy.  I came to the shelter as a stray, and am now looking for my "purrever" home.  I am the best little crimefighter you'll ever meet!  Got mice?  No problem-I got that.  Got stinkbugs?  No problem--I got that, too.  In my off-time when I am not fighting crime, I love to play and nap.  I also have been told that I am an excellent confidant and lap warmer, too.  Come on down and meet me today.  I can't wait to meet you and show you my excellent crime fighting, lap warming, playing, and napping skills!  My adoption fee will be waived (FREE) with your approved application! 

Meow, Batman (") (")

Batman 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) or their off-site center at Petsmart on 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.
