"Time spent with cats is never wasted"! 

-Sigmund Freud

Hey you... you over there!  Meow! I'm Joel. I am a gorgeous black domestic shorthair guy with the prettiest green eyes! I am only 5 years old. I am a favorite of the people here at the shelter.  I am very sweet, friendly and social. I love people and other kitties.  In fact, I am such a good boy that I live in the free roam room with some other kitty roomates! I love to sit in people's laps and give them sweet kisses!  Please come and meet me today. I am already fixed, have my bags packed, and am all ready to go home with you. My adoption fee will be waived (free) with your approved adoption application!

Purrrrrrr, 

Joel

Ruff-Ruff!  My name is Nelson, and I am a handsome "Pibble" mix fellow! I am mostly white with the cutest little grey eye patch--like a pirate!  Ahoy Mateys!  :-) I am only 3 years old. I am currently in a foster home while I wait for my "furever" family to discover me.  I am a sweet, but shy, guy who loves people once I meet them, and I seem to get along with other doggies. I have already been fixed and am ready to find my new home.  I will make a wonderful companion for some lucky person or family! Can you come meet me today and take me home? I have my bags packed and ready!

Love,

Bark Bark!! My name is Barkley! I am a gorgeous 4 years old Boxer mix. I am very friendly and social with people--I love people!  I am not really interested in being friends with other dogs--only people. I passed my tests here at the shelter with flying colors. I think I would love to go on long walks or hikes with my future family.  I am so ready to break out of this joint and get into my "furever" home!  Can you come meet me today and take me home?

Love, 

Barkley

Pick Me!

Who is RCACP?

The 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, RCACP website, to make it possible to search for a lost pet online. Contact the RCACP for the Roanoke, Virginia, area and to report a lost or found pet. Call 540-344-4922.

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 through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

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.
