Although we didn't reach this past week's adoption goal, we are so excited that 73 pets – 21 dogs and 52 cats – adopted last week will be spending their lives in permanent, loving homes. Our ambitious goal for the coming week is to find homes for 101 pets.
We have so many wonderful animals awaiting adoption at the Robins-Starr Humane Center. Some pets have been waiting for only a short time, while for others, a long time has passed. We truly believe there is a home out there for each and every one of these special animals, so we encourage you to stop by and let our adoption counselors introduce you to a new friend today. Not only will it make a difference in your life, but it will make a difference in theirs as well. Additionally, 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. So be a hero for an animal today!
This Saturday, August 4, our Tail Wag'N will be at the Richmond BMW and Crown Mini at 8710 West Broad Street, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stop by and meet a new feline or canine friend! For every vehicle purchased this month from Richmond BMW, Crown Mini or Crown Acura, the dealerships will make a donation to support pets in our care.
On Sunday, August 5th, we'll be bringing our furry friends to the Watermelon Festival. Our Tail Wag'N will be there from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m, so stop by! We hope to see you there!
Our "Two’s Company” adoption special has been so popular that we are extending it from July to August. During the entire month of August, any two felines can be adopted for one $95 adoption fee! Isn't everything better in pairs?
Lora Robins Gift Shop Special – Just for adopters!
For a limited time, all new adopters will receive a coupon to use in our retail shop. Adopters who spend $25 or more will receive a free bag of Companion Brand dog or cat food (the same food their pet has been fed during his stay here at our humane center), or they'll get $10 off a purchase of $50 or more. The Lora Robins Gift Shop has knowledgeable staff and is well stocked with fabulous pet products at prices comparable to the big box stores. The best thing about your purchase is that proceeds benefit homeless pets still awaiting adoption.
