Erin Dams is the Community Engagement Coordinator with the Roanoke Valley SPCA. In this role, Erin coordinates all aspects of the humane education programs and community outreach programs such as our Visiting Pets program and ‘Dine to Donate’ events. She is also the first and primary point of contact for our awesome volunteers!

Before joining the Roanoke Valley SPCA in November 2021, Erin 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 holds a degree in Communications from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Erin joined the Roanoke Valley SPCA because she has a huge passion for pets (and their humans) and continuous education. No matter how much experience we accumulate, there is always something new for us to learn!
