We are happy to report that 57 pets, that's 22 dogs and 35 cats, found permanent, loving homes this past week! Within those numbers are some animals who had been at the center a little longer, like Hulk and Sia, who have been favorites with our staff and volunteers. Our ambitious adoption goal for this coming week is to find homes for 83 pets.
Mark your calendars! From 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, the Richmond SPCA will take part in The Amazing Raise. This is an initiative generously sponsored by the Community Foundation where your $50 tax-deductible donations can turn into more than $20,000 in support for pets in desperate need! This year, gifts to the Richmond SPCA during The Amazing Raise will benefit our Clinic for Compassionate Care. For more on this online fundraising event, check out our blog post!
