donate-buttonThe Roanoke Valley SPCA relies on the generosity and support of donors to remain a strong and viable animal care, education and advocacy organization.  Over 80 percent of our operating income is garnered through fund development efforts including individual donations, workplace giving, corporate sponsorship, matching gifts, grants and special events.  The Roanoke Valley SPCA does not receive funding from any national animal advocacy organization, state, or federal entity.  We reply solely on the supporters of our organization and the work we do in the community.  Please consider a tax deductible donation in support of the animals in our care.  This can be a one-time gift or a monthly recurring gift and can be specified to the fund desired.  
Ways to Donate

At the Roanoke Valley SPCA we are committed to protecting the privacy of donors and honoring the Donor Bill of Rights.  


Volunteering for the Roanoke Valley SPCA is a rewarding way to give of your time! The only way to understand the feeling of satisfaction one gets from helping the homeless animals is to experience it first hand. The Roanoke Valley SPCA offers a comprehensive volunteer program providing many different opportunities to choose from based on individual interests, talents, and availability. We will make every effort to provide a productive, educational and rewarding experience for you while you support our work on behalf of all of our animals. Read more about volunteer opportunities.

Foster a Pet

Often the Roanoke Valley SPCA takes in animals in need of extra care and attention, such as orphaned animals, newborn litters of puppies or kittens, and animals recovering from illnesses or injuries. Volunteers who have filled out an application and have been approved as foster care givers provide the extra TLC these animals require until they are ready for adoption. This volunteer activity requires extra time and commitment, but is very rewarding! Learn more about our foster program.
