The Roanoke Valley SPCA 2012 Pet Calendars are HERE!

2012 Roanoke Valley SPCA Pet Calendars are here!
Only $20 (including tax).

Available for sale here at Black Dog Salvage.

Filled with photos of adorable local pets and heartwarming quotes, these make great gifts for the holiday season - hostess gifts, teacher gifts, or for any animal lover!

All proceeds go to support programs and services provided by the Roanoke Valley SPCA.

The Pet Calendar is a major fundraiser for the RVSPCA, providing the funds necessary for food, shelter, medical care and TLC for the thousands of homeless and unwanted animals who call our shelter "home" while they wait for a new family to find them.

The Black Dog Salvage Sisters go to Market!

A great time was had at this year's High Point Market!

The highlight for Courtney was meeting Genevieve Gorder, one of the original designers on Trading Spaces, host of HGTV Design Star and star of Dear Genevieve!
