RVSPCA marks milestone of 20,000 adoptions!

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The Roanoke Valley SPCA just marked a historic milestone! 20,000 pets adopted since February, 2004!

Look at this family who helped them hit that mark. Annie and Gabe Puckett were celebrating a friend’s birthday at the shelter on Saturday, when Annie fell in love with Ren, and Gabe fell in love with Rachel, both 2-month old kittens.

The Pucketts adopted both Ren and Rachel, making the total 20,001! The Pucketts received an adoption goody bag, full of essentials from Purina to celebrate. The staff is also getting ready for a celebration as well!

“We have been sort of gearing up for about the last month, because we knew we were getting close. Afterwards we're going to have a little staff party, some cake, fun stuff, and prizes to give out, things like that too,” said Denise Hayes.

This milestone is a celebration of the RVSPCA’s mission to create a community without homeless animals.
