Woof! My name is Ivy. You must come meet me.  I graduated from the ASPCA’s Behavioral Rehabilitation Center. You may have heard of them since several of us have come to Roanoke for a new life.  Don’t let my droopy eyes fool you: I am a young and fun dog and ready to explore the world. I am a big girl with a sweet personality, warm up to people fairly quickly but can still be shy in new situations.  I enjoy toys and food enrichment and take good care of my blankets. I hope to find a patient person or family that can teach me the joys of living in a home. I enjoy going on walks and playing with dogs that can tolerate my size and exuberance.  I am learning about manners since I am a big gal and may need some guidance around jumping and pulling on leash.  I am 80 pounds, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested. Come meet me! My adoption fee is $99.

If you are interested in adopting me, please complete our online Adoption Application.  The Roanoke Valley SPCA offers adoptions by appointments Monday – Saturday between Noon and 7pm. Appointments can be made by calling 540-339-9247.  Walk-in’s will be offered the next available appointment.  Pets are adopted on a first come basis. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold pets nor guarantee a pet will be available at the time of your appointment, but we do promise to call you if a pet is adopted prior to your appointment.

The Roanoke Valley SPCA has embraced Fear Free Shelters philosophy and are committed to giving each pet in our care a fear free experience while looking for their forever homes.  The Fear Free® philosophy is designed to reduce the negative emotional states that are commonly experienced by shelter animals, including fear, anxiety, stress, and frustration. We offer virtual walk thru of available pets on our website and at our shelter. The end result is a happier, healthier new member of your family.  

Call 540-339-9247 Monday – Saturday between Noon and 7 pm to speak with an adoption counselor for more information.
