We blew right past our goal of 65 adoptions and found forever homes for 79 pets! We were very happy to match 28 dogs and 51 cats with families this past week. Our goal for next week is 65 adoptions.
Erie insurance “surprise and delight” team visits the Richmond SPCA
As some of you already know, we have a special tradition here at the Robins-Starr Humane Center that is part of every adoption. When an adoption is complete, new pet guardians ring the bell in our adoption center to celebrate and let everyone know a dog or cat is going home. This past Sunday, an extra surprise was built into that sound of success for a few lucky adopters. The Erie Insurance “surprise and delight” team gave these new pet guardians the good news that Erie would be paying their adoption fee!
The Erie Insurance “surprise and delight” team goes out into the community and performs good deeds. This great group of representatives came and spent a few hours in our adoption center waiting to surprise people once their adoptions were complete. We were excited to take part in the fun and very thankful that Erie’s team thought of us and our pets. Thank you, Erie Insurance! Here are some of the delighted faces we caught on camera:
During the month of October, we have two ongoing adoption specials. Wednesdays this month are Waggin' Wednesdays, and all dog adoptions are discounted 15 percent. On Feline Fridays all cat adoptions will be 15 percent off the regular $99 adoption fee. All pets adopted from the Richmond SPCA are already spayed or neutered, up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations and microchipped. Learn more about our adoption process on our website.
Off-site adoption events
The Richmond SPCA's mobile adoption vehicle, Tail Wag'N, is on a mission to find homes for our shelter pets. Join us this Saturday, Oct. 27 from 12 - 2 p.m. at the Goochland Sports Complex for the Goochland County Fall Festival.
