One Time Donation

One time donations can be made easily online or by mailing a check to the Roanoke Valley SPCA at our mailing address at the bottom of the page.  When making your donation you can designate it for the care of animals or for the Sarah Jane & Mickey Second Chance Fund. This donor designated fund provides medical care for pets that exceed the scope of our clinic.  These are things like x-rays, ultrasounds, etc.


Matching Gifts

Many companies support the charitable activities of their employees by generously matching their gifts of time and money. Matching gifts are initiated by filling out a simple form provided by your employer, often found online. If you have questions about your company’s matching gift policy, please check with your human resources, community relations, or charitable giving department. Matching gifts are a great way to double your lifesaving support. You can turn your generous $25 donation into $50, your $100 donation into $200, your $250 donation into $500 and more!


Donations in Honor or Memory of Someone

Donations to honor a milestone, birthday, or any occasion, as well as donations in memory of someone or in lieu of flowers can be made online. There you can designate the donation in memory or honor of someone or a pet. If you provide us with a contact name and address for the honoree or family member of the deceased, we will send a card acknowledging your donation.


Pet Patron

Pet Patrons pledge monthly support for the animals. In return, they receive a sponsor vehicle window cling and our annual report, accounting our success stories. The monthly support of a Pet Patron enables us to provide excellent veterinary and shelter care for every animal until they find their forever home.  Pet Patrons are also recognized by a sponsor card on a kennel in our adoption center.
