The Regional Center for Animal Control and Protection — the municipal pound that serves Roanoke, Roanoke County, Vinton and Botetourt County — will become a no-kill shelter for “Just One Day.”
So if you are thinking about adding a new furry member to your family, June 11 would be a great day to visit RCACP.
On that day, RCACP will be open until 7 p.m. and local rescue groups will be on hand to help facilitate adoptions of homeless, healthy pets residing in the pound. Normal adoption procedures will apply and the entire family, including any dogs you currently have in your home, are encouraged to come meet the pets.
If you are thinking specifically about adding a feline to your family, you have all of June, officially Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat month, to meet your purr-fect match at the RVSCPA. The adoption fee will be waived for all kitties ages six months and older.
