Prevention is the key to keeping pets out of shelters. All animals at the Roanoke Valley SPCA have been microchipped so that they can always be reunited with their owners. Reunion with your found pet is easy if you keep your contact information up to date. If your pet is microchipped, you can register the microchip and update your contact information including photos of your pet for free at Found.org.
Mountain View Humane Clinic provides low-cost microchipping for pets and can be contacted at 540-382-0222 or www.mvhclinic.org.
