'KITTYPALOOZA,' Richmond Animal Care & Control's $20.00 cat and kitten adoption event, continues through Sat, Aug. 4.
The adoption event at Richmond Animal Care & Control is the city's latest effort to increase adoptions of pets in need of loving, permanent homes at the City of Richmond animal shelter. In addition, the adoption fee for cats and dogs ages six years and older will be waived.
Potential adopters must complete an adoption application and meet with an adoption placement counselor to insure the best possible match for each pet. City of Richmond residents must also purchase a $10.00 annual pet license.
"We have some of the cutest kittens to ever enter the shelter," said Acting Operations Mgr. Chuck Marchant. "And we have more than 100 adult dogs and cats in need of homes as well."
Adoption hours are Tues. – Fri., 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Sat., noon – 4:00 p.m.
Richmond Animal Care & Control is located at 1600 Chamberlayne Ave.
Adoptable pets may be seen online at www.RichmondGov.com/animals.
The adoption phone number is (804) 646-5575. RAC&C needs donations of blankets, towels, washable pet beds, newspapers, canned cat and kitten food, pet carriers, English slip leads and pet treats and toys for cats and dogs.
