Our Adoption Process:

If everyone involved is in agreement, you will need to fill out an application for your new pet, which you can find on our website or at the shelter. Adopters must be 18 years of age or older and provide the Roanoke Valley SPCA with photo identification showing current address. Adoption fees may be paid in cash, debit or credit card (VISA or MasterCard). All pets available for adoption have been examined by our staff veterinarian and treated for any health issues. They have been tested for canine/feline diseases, spayed or neutered, received routine vaccinations (including rabies), been microchipped, and have received a heavy dose of love and attention from all of our staff and volunteers. The main requirement for adoption is that the adopter understand and fully make a life-time commitment to the animal of their choice. Adoption fees are as follows: Puppies (under 6 months of age: $150.00, Dogs (over 6 months of age) and cats and kittens: $99.00. Certain discounts apply when adopting more than one animal, or if the pet is 5 years of age or older. Senior citizens (over 60 years of age) also receive a discount on fees when adopting a new companion.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
