Lost and found animals are sheltered at the Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection located at 1510 Baldwin Avenue, Roanoke, VA 24012.
Pet owners are encouraged to check the center frequently when looking for their lost pet and may also post a lost pet listing.
The Regional Center serves the City of Roanoke, the Counties of Botetourt and Roanoke, and the Town of Vinton, and is an "open intake facility." The center primarily handles stray animals picked up by municipal Animal Control Officers, but also accepts strays that are found, and animals owned, by citizens. Each year the Regional Center receives between 7,500 and 8,000 animals.
