On Monday we brought you the terrific news that as our fiscal year came to a close on Sunday evening, we matched our 3,502nd pet with a loving family. The Sept. 30 ending of our fiscal year also ended a wonderful adoption week in which 70 pets (28 dogs and 42 cats) were placed. Now we are beginning a new year with a goal of 68 adoptions this week.
Off-site adoption event:
The annual joint Blessing of the Animals service with Grace & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church is this Sunday, Oct. 7 at 10 a.m. The pet-friendly event is held in Monroe Park, and Laurel Street will be closed in front of the church. Animals of all sizes and species are invited and will receive a special blessing. Our Tail Wag'N adoption vehicle will be on site until noon. Join the event on Facebook and invite friends!
During the month of October, we have two ongoing adoption specials. Each Wednesday this month is Waggin' Wednesday, 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.
