Special Events
Help out at off-site adoption events, fundraising events, or with community outreach. Tasks include transporting animals to and from the shelter, helping with set-up and clean-up, handing out information to the public and selling Roanoke Valley SPCA merchandise. The Roanoke Valley SPCA sponsors or participates in many special events throughout the year.Please understand that, as a safe shelter, the Roanoke Valley SPCA cannot accept every animal brought to our shelter. We treat every animal’s life as precious and will not resort to euthanasia to control the number of pets at our Barbara and Warner Dalhouse Education and Adoption Center. Therefore, we will accept the surrender of owned cats and dogs by appointment only as space allows.The Roanoke Valley SPCA is working to create a community where there are no homeless cats or dogs through the power of adoption, prevention and intervention. The Associate Veterinarian is key to the success of preventing animals from entering local shelters and intervening in times of crisis.League for Animal Protection (LAP) is a non-profit, no-kill shelter in the Roanoke Valley. LAP was formed in 1991 by a group of concerned citizens in response to an especially cruel situation in which 40 pets were deliberately trapped in an abandoned house and left to die. Our volunteers and supporters help rescue abandoned dogs and cats, giving them medical treatment, shelter and care until they can be given a second chance in a new home. To date, LAP has helped find new, loving homes for more than 2,000 pets. LAP services are funded by private donations, membership fees and fundraising events.The Roanoke Valley SPCA does not admit strays directly into its care for two reasons. First, owners who have lost a pet need a central location to find him, and that is our local municipal shelter. Second, as a private, safe shelter, we must use our cage space to save the largest number of lives possible, and by state law strays must be held for a period of time during which they cannot be adopted. When a stray is brought to the Roanoke Valley SPCA, the good Samaritans who found him are directed to the appropriate animal control facility. Thus, if an owner is searching for the pet, he has adequate time under the “stray period” (a mandatory period of time that the pet must be held under state law) to find him at the government shelter. This policy exists to give stray pets the best chance of being reunited with their families. For more information about what to do if you have found a stray, .
