General Operating Fund 

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 Sara Jane and Mickey Second Chance Fund

Sara 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 Sara Jane and Mickey Second Chance Fund was created to assist other animals at the Roanoke Valley SPCA. This fund provides financing for medical procedures and behavioral assessments outside the scope of our in-house clinic that greatly enhances the adoptability of a deserving animal.


Companion Animal Relief Fund

The C.A.Re Fund or Companion Animal Relief fund of the Roanoke Valley SPCA was set up to help economically challenged pet owners struggling with extraordinary veterinary expenses to keep their pets healthy and at home with them. We at the Roanoke Valley SPCA are committed to keeping pets and people together. The CARE fund helps to do just that. This fund assists individuals who are faced with relinquishing or euthanizing a dog or cat due to financial constraints.
