RCACP at full canine capacity with 50 adoptable, stray, and relinquished dogs

Roanoke Valley News

(WFXR) — The dog rooms at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP) are officially full, which means the organization needs the Roanoke Valley community’s help to either return lost dogs to their families or find some families in need of new canine companions.

As of Tuesday, May 11, the RCACP says there are 22 dogs available for adoption, 17 dogs are on “stray hold,” and 11 dogs are off “stray hold” or waiting on vetting after being relinquished by their owners.

“We have so many incredible dogs available for adoption right now, from couch potatoes to jogging companions!” the RCACP wrote on Facebook on Tuesday. “… But we are running out of space to house all these sweethearts and we need them to find homes soon.”

If you have lost your dog in the last few days or last few weeks, please call the RCACP (540) 344-4922 to see if they are there.

“To house all these wonderful animals from the communities we serve, we sometimes have to face hard decisions to make space,” the RCACP said. “In order to avoid making those tough decisions, we need the help of our community now!”

If you want to set up an appointment to reunite with your old furry friend or adopt a new furry friend, you are asked to call the RCACP at (540) 344-4922 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12.
