ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Animal shelters across southwest and central Virginia are full of adoptable pets, which is why WFXR News is highlighting these adorable adoptables in our weekly segment called “Furry Friends.”

On Tuesday, Feb. 21, Stephanie Wright with the Franklin County Animal Shelter brought a 3-year-old hound mix, Bailey, to the WFXR News station to help her find a forever family.

Wright says Baileys is “nothing but precious. She has the best calm personality, but she’s a special case.”

Wright says Bailey came with the shelter with an injury that was not taken care of. Now, she requires surgery to amputate one of her back legs.

“We are asking for a foster to adopt until she has her surgery on March 1st,” says Wright.

The Franklin County Animal Shelter is taking care of the surgery, but Wright hopes Bailey will be able to rest and heal after the surgery inside a loving home rather than the shelter.

The shelter says it has many adoptable cats and dogs available right now, so community members are encouraged to stop by the Rocky Mount facility to pick up a new furry friend.

The shelter — located at 81 State Street — is closed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays, but is open from noon to 6 p.m. on Thursdays, from noon to 4 p.m. on Fridays, and from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
