Titan is waiting to be adopted at the RVSPCA.
If you were thinking about adding a pet to your family, you might consider taking advantage of a one-day-only event a the Roanoke Valley SPCA.
The first 10 pets adopted at the RVSPCA on Saturday will have the adoption fee waived.
The non-profit, no-kill shelter found out today they can participate in the Hill’s Science Diet “Change the Life of a Pet Day” this Saturday, Jan. 24. That means the pet food company will reimburse the RVSPCA the adoption fees for the first 10 pets on this day only, so adoptive families can take a critter home for free.
The program is being sponsored nationwide by the pet food maker teamed with actress and adopted-pet advocate Kyra Sedgwick.
Normal adoption fees will apply for the rest of the adoptions on Saturday, and all the typical adoption procedures will be followed, including the application and screening process, for the 10 pets that Hill’s Science Diet will cover. No pets can be placed on hold, so it’s first come, first home.
All pets adopted from the RVSPCA are up-to-date on shots, spayed or nuetered, and microchipped, and all are sent home with a starter kit that includes food and tips on making the pet happy in his or her new home.
Even if you aren’t able to take advantage of this generous offer from Hill’s Science Diet, the adoption fees are very reasonable, especially considering the pets have already been fixed, chipped and vaccinated.

Adopting a pet should not be a rash decision, and really shouldn’t be influenced solely by a bargain deal. But if you were already considering opening your heart and home to a new pooch or kitty, this is a great way to get off to a good start.
