Donate and help the animals in our care!
The cost of caring for the animals at the shelter is staggering. Each animal that comes to our shelter receives a complete veterinary exam, is spayed or neutered, if necessary, is brought up-to-date on their vaccinations and micro-chipped. Excluding the administrative costs to operate the shelter, it costs $11.25 per animal, per day to provide the highest quality of care as specified by shelter standards. Your support literally can literally save a life.
The Sarah Jane and Mickey Second Chance Fund
Sarah Jane and Mickey were two very special dogs given a second chance at life. They proved themselves worthy of that second chance many times over during their lives – giving back in service, love and companionship. In their memory, the Sarah Jane & Mickey Second Chance Fund was created to assist other animals at the Roanoke Valley SPCA. This fund provides funding for medical procedures and behavioral assessments outside the scope of our in-house clinic that greatly enhances the adoptability of a deserving animal.
Become a Pet Patron
Pet Patrons pledge monthly support for the animals. In return, they receive regular photos and reports on the loving pets currently residing at the Roanoke Valley SPCA. They get a personal accounting of our success stories while knowing that their monthly support enables us to provide excellent veterinary and shelter care for every animal until they find their forever home.
Other Ways to Help
Celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other event with the animals being the beneficiary. In addition to cash donations, we are always in need of the supplies necessary to care for the animals. Check out our Wish List below to see what items are especially needed.
Hold a food drive at your place of business, church or community group. The Roanoke Valley SPCA PET (Pets Eat Too) Program provides pet food to thousands of recipients through Meals on Wheels and other food pantry and ministry partners. More than 80,000 pounds of pet food per year is needed to feed the pets and keep people and pets united in our community.
So many of us have been touched by the unconditional love of an animal and want to help guarantee that the Roanoke Valley SPCA will continue to provide food, shelter and medical care to the homeless and unwanted animals well into the future. There are many ways to create a lasting memorial with a planned gift through your estate. A financial advisor, attorney, and/or estate planner can help you determine which type of gift is best for you.
