We are thrilled to announce that our wonderful adoption counselors found loving homes for 45 pets last week! Our goal is to find homes for 56 orphaned animals this week.

Kitten season has begun! Over half of the cats adopted from our humane center this past week were under a year old. Many of these juveniles were part of our Meet the Fosters™ program before they became available for adoption. The Richmond SPCA is in need of kitten supplies to help support this lifesaving program. You can help by donating items on our wish list, or if you would like to provide monetary support to help us provide all of the medications, food and other essentials for the kittens that are being fostered, please click here.

Cashew, the fun-loving jack russell terrier mix, found his new home after visiting our friends at Lite 98. Excelsior, the 3-year old cairn terrier mix, was adopted after being featured in a Paws for Pets segment filmed by CBS 6. Logan, the handsome shepherd mix, found a loving home after appearing on NBC 12.
