Erin Dams is the Program Coordinator with the Roanoke Valley SPCA. In this role, Erin coordinates all aspects of the volunteer, humane education, and community cat programs, and assists with pet retention programs. Erin holds a degree in Communications from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Before joining the Roanoke Valley SPCA in November 2021, Erin worked for six years at Trek Bicycle Company as a trainer for customer service and retail staff. Erin also was the Adoption Coordinator for Urban Cat Coalition, a Milwaukee-based cat rescue/community cat program, and the MidAtlantic Region Support Specialist for Best Friends Animal Society, helping advise shelters in six states on grant processes and establishing new programs.
Erin currently has two rescue pets: Thomas O’Malley, a brown tabby cat who loves dogs, but hates other cats, and Tito, a white cattle dog mix who loves all animals and is a great “mom” to foster kittens! Both were adopted from Wisconsin animal shelters. Erin joined the Roanoke Valley SPCA because she has a huge passion for pets (and their humans!) and continuous education.
