RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Are you looking for a new addition to your family? Richmond Animal Care and Control might have just who you are looking for.

The shelter is at full capacity, and to help clear it out, and find all their pets a forever home, animal control is offering a special adoption fee of just $10.

Adoptions are normally $100.

"For people that were already thinking of adding an animal to their family, that might be the push that tips them over the edge," Richmond Animal Care and Control director Christie Chipps-Peters said.

The shelter will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, with staff saying they will continue the $10 special adoption fee until they have space.

"It's first come, first serve, so if that's ten animals or 20 animals, whatever it takes for us to get some good breathing room," Chipps-Peters said

Richmond Animal Care and Control is located at 1600 Chamberlayne Avenue.
