News and notes
Short Pump Town Center has asked the community what they would like to see at the mall when they begin extensive renovations in early 2014. Tell them you’d like to see Short Pump Town Center join the growing number of pet-friendly locations in the Richmond area. And the most pet-friendly action of all? Support the adoption of homeless dogs and cats by making retail space available for the Richmond SPCA to open an adoption center at Short Pump Town Center! Click here to sign the petition.
Our adoption center will be closed to the public on Sunday, June 23, for our annual Staff Fun Fair. This day is an opportunity for our staff to be together for a day full of fun outside of our humane center!
