SPCA Expands Efforts To Save Cats


The Roanoke Valley SPCA has entered into a partnership with Nature’s Emporium to save the lives of more cats and kittens.

Kitten season has arrived as never before, with litters upon litters of kittens of all ages and colors being delivered to the Regional Center for Animal Control & Protection (the municipal pound.)  The Roanoke Valley SPCA has stepped up its efforts to facilitate the adoption of more cats and kittens by offering discounted adoption fees.  Each cat adopted from the RVSPCA frees up space for others to be accepted from the Regional Center.

Nature’s Emporium has been filled with furry young felines hoping for a forever home.  From 11am-4pm on Friday and Saturday, volunteers will be on hand to talk with prospective owners and facilitate the adoption process.  Many of the kittens/young cats will be ready to head home, having previously been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  Those waiting their turn in the RVSPCA clinic will be able to go to their new home a few days following their adoption.

The population explosion experienced at animal shelters throughout the nation during the spring months affects the number of cats and kittens being relinquished to municipal pounds in a profound manner.  Too many of those never make it into a long-term home.  Having kittens on display at Nature’s Emporium will enable more cats to be placed in loving homes and open space for the many others to follow.

The RVSPCA relies on the generosity of individuals and the business community for the funds necessary to operate the Adoption & Education Center. It does not receive funding from any governmental body or national animal welfare organization.
