This past week we had a whirlwind of adoptions here at the Richmond SPCA! Once again, we exceeded our weekly goal. We found permanent, loving homes for 96 pets, that's 66 cats and 30 dogs! Our goal for the coming week is an ambitious 91 animals.
If you are considering adding a new pet to your family, we hope you will plan a visit to our Robins-Starr Humane Center. The pets available for adoption are constantly changing, and you will find many new, eager faces of dogs and cats to greet you, along with the friendly, knowledgable adoption team who will help you Meet Your Match. With summer here, what better time than now to find your soul mate in a companion animal!
This Friday, July 27, we will be bringing our feline and canine friends to the “Movies on the Avenue." Our Tail Wag'N will be there from 7:30-9 p.m., so stop by and meet a new friend while enjoying the film Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. The event will be located at the playing field on the 5800 block of Patterson Avenue (between Maple and Libby). Visit our event calendar for details.
Eight of our fantastic felines are greeting shoppers at two Petco locations in the Richmond area – Short Pump and Staples Mill. To make an adoption appointment at one of the Petco stores, call our adoption desk at 804-521-1307. Recently, three cats – Maizy, Xena and Harry – found loving homes with shoppers at the Staples Mill store!
Two's Company: Throughout July, you can adopt any two cats or kittens for a single adoption fee of $95. We hope you take advantage of this special because two is always better than one!
