In the last week, we have found loving homes for 72 pets, that's 32 dogs and 40 cats, exceeding the week's adoption goal! We expect even better lifesaving results in the week ahead and have set an ambitious goal of 96 adoptions. Many of our supporters have already been spreading the news that Priority Automotive will pay the adoption fee for all pets through Dec. 31. Please continue to tweet, share on Facebook and tell your friends!
Our friends at Priority Automotive and its associated Richmond-area dealerships are generously paying the adoption fee for every dog, cat, puppy or kitten adopted from the Richmond SPCA December 13 through 31. That's right – you provide a precious homeless animal with a lifetime of love, and Priority will cover the adoption fee.
Santa Paws deliveries are available for pets adopted prior to Dec. 21. Santa, joined by his merry elves, will deliver your new companion to your family at home on Christmas Eve day, Dec. 24. This special offer, which provides your family with the memory of a lifetime, is available on a limited basis for $200.
Holiday Open House
On Thursday, Dec. 15, our adoption center will remain open until 9 p.m. as part of our Holiday Open House sale event and Pet Pantry food drive. Save on gifts for pet lovers in our Lora Robins Gift Shop, bring your pets for photos with Santa, enjoy a wine tasting with Cooper Vineyards and more! Share this event on Facebook.
We are excited to partner with our friends at The Richmond Ballet during their upcoming performances of The Nutcracker at the Carpenter Theatre at CenterStage. Performances on Dec. 17 (2 p.m.), Dec. 18 (4:30 p.m.), Dec. 21 (7 p.m.) and Dec. 23 (2 p.m.) will feature some of our adoptable dogs. The same pets will be available for adoption during intermission and after each of these special performances in the theatre's lobby! For details visit our offsite adoption calendar.
