Adoptable Pets of the Week
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he (she) loves himself (herself).” --Josh Billings


Dog of the Week--"Max"--ID#1168890
Max
"Max"--ID#1168890
Woof!  I'm Max, and I am a beautiful brindle color chihuahua.  I am just the sweetest little guy.  I am about 6 years old and came to the shelter as an owner surrender.  Sadly, my owner was unable to care for me any longer.  I am such a sweetie that I was selected to go to the PetEx last Saturday to meet and greet the people there. I met so many nice people including kids and other doggies, too!  I did so well that I got to stay the whole day. I loved the car ride over to the Expo, too!  I am a low energy, calm and friendly boy.  I get along great with other dogs.  I would love to have a "furever" home.   If you think I could join your family, please come down and meet me today!

Paws Up,  Max (") (")

Max is searching for a "furever" home and family.  Come down and meet this cutie today!  Max is currently staying at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP).  As an open intake public shelter, we are often faced with difficult decisions to make space. If you are interested in saving this pet’s life by adopting, please contact the RCACP Adoption Coordinator at 540-344-4922, ext. 314 or email Tim Brown at . If you are a rescue organization, please contact the RCACP Rescue Coordinator at (540) 344-4922, ext. 300 or by email:  , with the ID number. 

You may submit an adoption application by email. The application can be found at www.rcacp.org. Adoption requests are also accepted by telephone: (540) 344-4922. You must submit an application along with your request to hold your place in the order requests are received. Before adoption, all pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested, and microchipped.  The RCACP's hours for adoption are 11:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Saturday. Thank you for saving a life!

Remmy
"Remmy AKA Maverick"--ID#1157874

Meow!  My name is Remmy (also known as Maverick), and I am a beautiful 5 year old tabby kitty cat!   I came to the shelter as an owner surrender.  I am a sweet guy with lots of love to give.  I would love to find a "furever" home with a nice family to love me and take care of me.  I like to watch the birds outside, and I think it would be great if I had a nice window seat where I could watch them!  Won't you come by and meet me today?  My adoption fee will be waived (FREE) with your approved application!

Purrrrr!

Remmy (") (")

Remmy is one of the many beautiful cats and kittens who are waiting to find their "furever" homes at Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP) or their off-site center at Petsmart on Franklin Road in Roanoke.  Stop by or make an appointment to meet them today and find out just what Sigmund Freud meant when he said, "Time spent with cats is never wasted"!

Who is RCACP?

The Regional Center for Animal Control & Protection (RCACP) is an open intake facility accepting stray and lost animals from animal control officers and the public, as well as owner relinquished pets, from the City and County of Roanoke, the County of Botetourt, and the Town of Vinton. The RCACP posts pictures of lost or strayed animals on their website, www.rcacp.org, to make it possible to search for a lost pet online. The website also contains a lost and found database that allows someone who has lost a pet, or someone who has found a pet, to post information on the animal to help reunite the pet with his/her family.

Adopting a Friend

Once an animal has passed his/her required holding time at the facility to allow the owner to reclaim him/her, the RCACP works with the Roanoke Valley SPCA, rescue groups and other shelters to place available animals in suitable homes. Animals who are housed at the RCACP that are posted on the Petfinder.com website have been deemed available and can be seen by visiting the center Monday - Friday between 11:30 - 5:30 pm and Saturday 11:30 - 4:00 pm. Once an adoption request is placed, an appointment will be made to complete the adoption through the RVSPCA. Each will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being adopted. To place an adoption or rescue request, or for more complete information, please email us at  or call (540) 344-4922. Be sure to give us the animal's ID number to assure your name is on the right pet.
