ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Every week WFXR News highlights pets ready for adoption in area shelters through our segment, Furry Friends!

On Tuesday, February 7th, Roanoke’s Regional Center for Animal Care and Protection (RCACP) volunteers Anita Finkle and Anna Riccio brought four-year-old Avalanche to the WFXR News studio.

Avalanche is a neutered male Husky. RCACP says he came to the shelter as a stray. He is good with other dogs loves children and enjoys cuddles. RCACP says he is a very sweet pup that’s on the calmer side for a husky. He also rides well in the car and is very treat motivated.

If you are interested in adopting Avalanche or any of the other adoptable animals at the RCACP, you can fill out an application.

You can also visit the RCACP’s website to learn more about the shelter’s adoption process, the foster program, or volunteer opportunities.
