Woof! My name is Merlot and I am a big bundle of love!  While at the shelter, the staff is teaching me how to be a good walker. At 8 years old, I can still learn!. So far, I have learned that having a toy in my mouth helps me while I am walking.  My favorite is a Kong bone. Maybe you can be my training partner?  Come meet me and see how much I am learning.  I am 64 pounds, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested.  My adoption fee is $99. 

To ensure success in my new home, I will go home with training sessions from one of the Roanoke Valley SPCA behavior partners.  Thanks to the Judith Goins Behavior Support Fund!

If you are interested in adopting me, please complete our online Adoption Application. Click the link to book your appointment to meet me. Our adoption staff will give you a call to confirm the appointment and answer any questions you may have prior to the meet and greet. 

The Roanoke Valley SPCA offers adoptions by appointments Monday – Saturday between Noon and 7pm.  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.
