Although we were short of last week's goal, 36 pets – 17 cats and 19 dogs – have found permanent, loving homes! In our eyes, every pet who gets adopted is a success! Our goal for this coming week is to find homes for 76 dogs and cats. We expect that as people begin their summer schedules, there will be an increase of of traffic visiting our center. And we are ready!
For each pet placed in a home through adoption, our admissions team transfers homeless dogs and cats to our facility from government pounds and shelters throughout the Metro Richmond area. When you adopt a pet from the Robins-Starr Humane Center, you're saving two lives because it gives us space to help another animal in great need!
Off-site adoption event:
Although we have no off-site adoption events this week, we are looking forward to two upcoming events! The first is Fridays on the Patio at James River Cellars Friday, June 15 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The beautiful patio at James River Cellars sets the scene for this monthly event featuring local musicians, light food, wine tasting and good cheer. Bring a picnic and some friends, and enjoy the evening!
Our second upcoming event is the Tobacco Row Block Party on June 16 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.! Located at 25th and Main Street, you're invited to "Bark the Block" with us! Bring cash for food, beverages and shopping. Be sure to share this event and bring your friends.
June is “Adopt A Cat Month” at the Richmond SPCA! Adoption fees for all cats aged 6-months and older are reduced by 50 percent. We have many cats available who would love to find homes, so be sure to take advantage of this special. As always, each adopted pet is already spayed or neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations and microchipped.
