Since 2001 Botetourt County has operated a Pound with Roanoke County, Roanoke City and Vinton and the SPCA. On November 1 after much media focus , the SPCA and the RCAP separated to be run as two different entities.
On Dec. 20, County Administrator Kathleen Guzi presented an agreement already approved by the other three localities. A shelter manager will be advertised as soon as the agreement is approved by Botetourt County she noted.
Specifics: Botetourt County owns 16 % of the building and the budget. The Executive Committee made up by all four localities will be the real estate managers. Roanoke County will be the fiscal agent. Roanoke City is the host locality.
The Board approved the agreement.
