You might want to give your pup extra scratches and treats since today is National Dog Day.

ROANOKE, Va. – We’re are working to find homes for animals through our Clear the Shelters initiative.

Angels of Assisi in Roanoke is one of our many partners.

They say the help of the community and volunteers is necessary to find all their pets a forever home.

“We have so many amazing dogs and we also have people that work with them and rehab them and they are just really amazing dogs looking for great homes,” Communications Director Dayna Reynolds said.
