ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — While a furry friend finding a family is always a good reason to celebrate, the Roanoke Valley SPCA threw a big “pawty” on Thursday as the shelter reached a major adoption milestone!
On Thursday, Aug. 12, the Roanoke Valley SPCA hosted a “special adoption extravaganza” in honor of the 25,000th adoption since moving to the Barbara and Warner Dalhouse Adoption and Education Center in 2004.
The newest pet parents, Noah and Abby Bell, say they are excited to give their kitten Nash a fur-ever home.
“I had seen online and stuff that the SPCA was getting really crowded and I was like, ‘well, we can do what we can to try to help,’ so we got Nash right here,” said Noah Bell.
“We’re so thankful to Abby and Noah for adopting Nash! Everyone was pretty excited at our special adoption extravaganza – including Nash who couldn’t wait to get home with his new family! We’re also incredibly thankful to the foster, who not only fostered Nash and his two siblings, but who also found adopters for ALL THREE members of this litter! You all are the reason we’re celebrating today!” the Roanoke Valley SPCA wrote on Facebook. “We couldn’t do the work that we do to help pets and people in our community without you adopters, fosters, volunteers, and supporters! THANK YOU EVERYONE! Congratulations, Abby, Noah, and Nash! We’ll get ready for the next 25,000 adoptions, but for now let’s PAWTY!”
