ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – The nonprofit organization, Petco Love (formerly known as the Petco Foundation) has awarded the Roanoke Valley SPCA with a grant totaling $7,000.

The Roanoke Valley SPCA is focused on pet retention which aims to keep pets in the homes of a caring family.

They say that due to a variety of different scenarios, families sometimes feel the need to surrender their pets, “because they don’t know where to turn for temporary assistance with pet food, medical or behavior services,” reads a statement on the organization’s Facebook page.

The Roanoke Valley SPCA says the funding will go a long way to keep pets and their families together.
