HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Animal shelters across the country are taking part in National No Kill Day.

Some shelters, including the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center, don't euthanize any animals Wednesday; instead, SVASC is offering a reduced adoption fee of $10. The shelter has had overpopulation issues in the past.

Matt Chan, the adoption coordinator at Cat's Cradle in Harrisonburg, helped with the campaign and said working together is key, "Working together we are going to be able to save a lot more lives than working separately. So it's that type of partnership that's going to ultimately create that no-kill community."

In Lyndhurst, they had one cat and two dogs find forever homes. Their goal is to have all 52 animals adopted.
