ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — As dozens of cats and kittens fill up the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP) in Roanoke, the shelter is hosting an urgent adoption event on Wednesday to find forever homes for these felines.

The RCACP says this pop-up kitten/cat event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 27 at the shelter, which is located at 1510 Baldwin Avenue NE.

During this event, the RCACP will reportedly review adoption applications on-the-spot, which means that you do not need an appointment Wednesday if you are planning to adopt a feline.

The RCACP says it has 63 adoptable cats and kittens of all colors, sizes, and personalities just waiting to find loving families.

“They legally have to have a certain amount of kennels open each day for stray animals. If they DO NOT have pets leave their facility, they will have to make heartbreaking decisions,” Angels of Assisi wrote on Facebook when sharing the RCACP’s post about the adoption event. “It is the cold, hard truth that absolutely no one wants to face. Please help!”

According to Angels of Assisi, the RCACP will waive the cat or kitten adoption fee during Wednesday’s event for those with approved applications.

Angels of Assisi says their adoption team is working to get their animals into homes so they can make room to take in animals from the RCACP.

If you are missing a pet or want more information about the adoptable animals at the RCACP, you are asked to call 540-344-4922, email mail@rcacp.org, or follow this link.
