CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Charlottesville-Albemarle Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’s Care-A-Van is a usual sight in Charlottesville, but on Saturday it had a special furry friend up for adoption.

The traveling adoption van made its first stop in Charlottesville on Saturday, October 6, after helping to clear out shelters in North Carolina following Tropical Storm Florence.

One dog up for adoption is Wilmington, who was in a shelter in North Carolina before the storm hit.

Victoria Cunningham, the adoption councilor, says she's excited to help him find his forever home.

“It's the best feeling in the world, it's so rewarding knowing that the work were doing, the awesome teams that went down there to get these animals,” Cunningham said. “There's not a lot of other shelters that have the resources that we do, and you know this awesome Care-A-Van we do transfers that large, it's the best feeling in the world.”

Now with everyone back home, Cunningham says that the Care-A-Van will continue to help people adopt all around the area.
