ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Take Your Dog to Work Day is about a month away, and now is the time for businesses to start thinking about participating in the event.

HomeTown Bank and the Roanoke Valley SPCA are teaming up for National Take Your Dog to Work Day Friday, June 24th.

Local businesses are encouraged to offer employees the opportunity to bring their dog to work for the day for a $5 donation to the RVSPCA.

The donations will help the nonprofit continue to care for homeless, neglected, abused, and relinquished animals throughout the Roanoke Valley.
