The Roanoke Valley SPCA often accepts animals in need of extra care and attention, such as orphaned puppies, newborn litters of puppies, and puppies/dogs recovering from illness or injuries. Volunteer foster parents will provide temporary care for animals in the volunteer’s home. This includes feeding, socializing, medicating (if necessary), grooming and training foster animals. Foster parents will return all foster animals to the Roanoke Valley SPCA at the scheduled time, or at any time upon request of the Roanoke Valley SPCA. The Roanoke Valley SPCA will provide foster parents with nearly everything their charges will need. Foster parents will provide the love, patience and dedication their foster animals need.
