Pets in Need of Foster

We have a large number of pets in need of foster for the holiday season as well as for the critical foundation repairs that will take place to our building between December 19, 2019 and January 27, 2020.  If you can help, please contact Mary Marr about fostering dogs or Katie Nichols about fostering cats.  Because the pets in need are constantly changing, they are not currently found in the foster gallery below.

Our Foster Program

Two weeks can mean a lifetime!

The Roanoke Valley SPCA has made a commitment to saving as many animals as possible. Pregnant dogs and cats deserve a chance to give birth to their babies in warmth and comfort. Infant and orphaned puppies and kittens deserve a chance to grow and thrive so that they may become valued members of a family.

Adoption Ambassador Program

Going above and beyond

The Adoption Ambassador program asks for the help of select volunteers and businesses in Roanoke as well as the surrounding areas to help the Roanoke Valley SPCA find loving forever homes for our shelter pets. This program works similarly to our Foster program and turns the Adoption Ambassador into an adoption advocate for their shelter pet.
