ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Angels of Assisi and the Regional Center for Animals Care and Protection (RCACP) are holding a dual adoption event Saturday in order to free up shelter space and avoid any potentially heart-wrenching decisions.

According to Angels of Assisi, both shelters are completely full of adoptable dogs and have no space to take in more animals. As a result, Angels of Assisi and the RCACP will be holding the event from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6 at 1510 Baldwin Avenue NE.

In addition to a discounted adoption fee, event organizers say applications will be approved on the spot, so you can take your new furry friend home with you right away.

The RCACP is reportedly required by law to take in all stray animals from Botetourt County, Roanoke County, Roanoke City, and the Town of Vinton. This causes heartbreaking decisions to be made to make space for new strays. 

Even though Angels of Assisi is a no-kill shelter, it says it is still at capacity. By adopting one of these shelter pups, you are freeing up kennel space and saving a life.

In addition, any pet adopted from Angels of Assisi allows a pet to be brought over from the RCACP.

You can see all available animals on the Angels of Assisi website and the RCACP website.
