Although we didn't meet our weekly goal, 75 animals – 43 cats and 32 dogs – found loving homes this week. Along with the help of our wonderful adoption counselors at the Robin-Starr Humane Center, these numbers are also due in large part to The HelpDesk Company promotion. All animals six months and older had their adoption fee paid for by this generous local IT firm. The large number of animals adopted out this week also creates space in our center to save the lives of other animals who need us. We were able to take 59 additional pets into our care last week! We are owe a great debt of thanks to The HelpDesk company for the support they gave for this week's life-saving results. The goal for the upcoming week is to place 76 animals in permanent homes.
We are always thrilled with any adoption that takes place, but there are always a few Extra-Special Tails that make us jump for joy. Both Ronnie and Kendra, found homes this past week, thanks in part to The HelpDesk Company pre-paid adoption special. Ronnie went home in time for Independence Day celebrations with two of his best buds who volunteer with our Running Buddies program. Kendra found her loving family on Sunday after of The HelpDesk Company extended the promotion that was originally set to end Friday. We're so glad these two Extra-Special Tails found happy endings!
In addition to the cats at our center, we also currently have eight wonderful felines greeting shoppers at two Petco locations in the Richmond area – Short Pump and Staples Mill. One shopper fell in love with Doug at the Staples Mill store this past week, and now he's in a permanent home!
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 everything in life is better with a buddy!
