HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - We get to experience a pet parade as fourteen local animal shelters join forces from February 11th - 17th to recognize Homeless Animal Awareness Week (HAAW).

Folks from local shelters across the region teach us about how HAAW got started and how we can participate and help.

Check out some of the adorable and adoptable pets below:
