This week we had 63 amazing adoptions in our adoption center! We're happy to report that 32 dogs and 31 cats found great homes. Our goal for the upcoming week is 145 adoptions. You can help spread the word about our available pets by 'liking' and sharing our social media posts:
Adoption special: Home for the Holidays
Adopt an adult cat during December for half the normal adoption fee! Open your home to any cat aged 6 months or older, and we'll reduce the adoption fee by 50 percent. Visit www.richmondspca.org/cats to see all cats currently available for adoption at the Robins-Starr Humane Center.
Featured feline: Brandy
Brandy is a 5-year-old domestic shorthair cat that has been at the Robins-Starr Humane Center since September 2008, when she arrived as a transfer from Richmond Animal Care and Control. She has been waiting a very long time for a home. She has spent four holiday seasons at the Robins-Starr Humane Center. As much as we love her, we hope she will finally spend this one in a life-long home. Consider adopting an adult cat like Brandy this December!
