Meow!  Roses are red...Violets are blue... I am going to knead you to come down to the shelter to adopt me today!  See what I did there.... knead.... need?  Most cats like to knead with their paws when they are happy--I know I do!  I would be very happy to find my "furever" home and be your Valentine.  I am a friendly, gentle guy who loves people. I am only about a year old.  Come down and meet me today!  My adoption fee will be waived (FREE) with your approved application!  Be My Valentine!

Luv, Emmitt

Emmitt is searching for a "furever" or foster home and family. Come down and meet this sweetie today! Emmitt is currently staying at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP).
As an open intake public shelter, we are often faced with difficult decisions to make space. If you are interested in saving this pet’s life by adopting, please contact Roxy Brown at (540) 344-4922 or by email.

You may submit an adoption application by email. The application can be found at www.rcacp.org. Adoption requests are also 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.  The RCACP's hours for adoption are 11:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Saturday. Thank you for saving a life!

Woof!  Roses are red...Violets are blue... I want my "furever" home to be with ~YOU~!  My name is Lucy, and I'm a 2 year old Lab mix.  I am a sweet girl who came to the shelter as an owner release.  I am friendly and enthusiastic, and I love people.  I also like other dogs, but I need more practice interacting with them.  I am ready to be your sweet Valentine.  Could you come by my shelter to meet me today?  I have my bags packed, and I'm ready to go to my "furever" home today! 

XOXO, Lucy (") (")

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.
