The paperwork

You have made the decision on which dog or cat will be your new best friend! Now you will need to fill out an adoption application. The PDF application in English or the PDF application in Spanish can be printed, completed, and brought to the shelter before you come in to meet your new best friend, or you can complete the application at the shelter, or you can complete the application online. Adopters must be 18 years of age or older and provide the Roanoke Valley SPCA with photo identification showing current address. Adoption fees may be paid by cash, debit or credit card (VISA or MasterCard).

Our Adoption Counselor will then review your application. After approval of the application and paying the adoption fee and, you may take your new pet home immediately.
