Roanoke animal shelter at full capacity; asking for people to adopt

April 18, 2018 - The Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection has reached capacity for large stray dogs after many were brought in after the storm on Sunday night. 

They said many of the dogs are not micro-chipped, so the center can't contact their owners to help reunite them.

All kennels are reaching full capacity in both stray and available large dogs for adoption, the center said.

If you are missing your dog, they are asking you to go to the shelter on Baldwin Avenue, NW to see if your dog is there.

If you're interested in adopting a dog, please visit the shelter so that kennel space can be made available for additional dogs that are being brought in.

Dogs that are brought in to the shelter must be kept, by law, for the required stray hold time, which is either five or 10 days, depending on the information provided when the dog was brought in.

Additionally, the available dog kennels are also full.
