PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) -- The Prince George County animal shelter has found a creative new way to find cats and dogs homes.

The shelter is posting video of animals up for adoption on its YouTube channel.

Volunteers think this will allow a wider audience to see the cats and dogs they have available -- and it seems to be working.

In fact, one woman drove all the way from New York to adopt a pet from the shelter.

Before posting these videos to YouTube, the shelter relied heavily on the Richmond SPCA and other no-kill shelters to get most of their pets adopted.
