"Time spent with cats is never wasted"! 

-Sigmund Freud

Hi!  My name is Hunter, and I am an 11 years young fellow who is looking for my "furever" home. The people here at the RCACP think I am the "purrrrfect" older gentleman. Besides everyone knows orange and white kitties are the best--sweet as those yummy Dreamsicles! I am ready to hold the couch down with you while we watch tv and have a snack. I'm looking for a quiet home with lots of love and affection. Please come by and take me home today!

Hunter is searching for a "furever" home. Come meet this sweetie today! 

Hunter is currently staying at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP). As an open intake public shelter, they may face difficult decisions to make space. If you are interested in saving a pet’s life by adopting, please contact the RCACP at 540-344-4922. 

At the RCACP, the goal is to connect adoptable pets with suitable forever homes. The first step in adopting through RCACP is to complete an Adoption Application (PDF). The next step is having a meet and greet with the animal to make sure that he/she is compatible with your family, human and animal alike. When adopting dogs, RCACP requires that all family members living in the home (or ones that will have frequent contact with the dog), come to the shelter to meet the dog prior to approval for adoption. RCACP also requires that any other dogs in the home come to the shelter to meet the selected dog to ensure that they are compatible prior to adoption. For cat adoptions, it is recommended that everyone in the household meet the cat prior to adoption as well. If all goes well, the selected animal will go home with you and a folder full of helpful hints to introduce the animal into its new home! Thank you for saving a life!

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.
