The vehicle that overturned on I-81 in Washington County, Virginia was a camper carrying 70 shelter dogs.  Thankfully there were no injuries to the animals of the driver of the vehicle.  The shelter dogs, all small breeds, were traveling from Arkansas to Maine.  The animals are now staying at the Washington County, Virginia Animal Shelter until they can continue their journey north.  VSP says the driver lost control of the vehicle near exit 24.  VSP tells us the driver swerved to avoid hitting a car in front of her, then the camper flipped onto the passenger's side.  The driver was cited for failure to maintain proper control.
