ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — With so many adoptable animals filling up shelters across southwest and central Virginia, WFXR News continues to highlight the pets seeking forever homes with our Furry Friends segment.

On Tuesday, Aug. 9, Julie Rickmond with the Roanoke Valley SPCA brought a very friendly — and very fluffy — dog named Yasha onto “Good Day Virginia.”

Rickmond says Yasha is 10 years old and very relaxed, but he also loves meeting new people and would do very well in a variety of homes. However, with such a thick coat, he does require extra grooming and access to air conditioning.

If you are interested in meeting Yasha, follow this link to set up an appointment. You can also submit an application to adopt this precious pooch by clicking here.

The Roanoke Valley SPCA offers adoptions by appointment from noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. If you want to learn more, call 540-339-9247 to speak with an adoption counselor.

You can also visit the Roanoke Valley website to check out the shelter’s available animals, as well as find information about the adoption process, the foster program, or volunteer opportunities.
