Volunteer for the RCACP


The time and talents of our volunteers is essential to the Regional Center for Animal Care & Protection.  The Regional Center is a holding facility for the lost and unwanted animals from Roanoke City, Roanoke County, County of Botetourt, and the Town of Vinton.  Volunteers assist with daily care of the animals, networking the animals to outside rescue groups and the general public, lost and found pets, and at off-site adoption events with partner rescue organizations.
