RICHMOND, Va. — These adoptable pets are being featured during Mike Goldberg’s Paws for Pets segments this weekend…
Pastor is a sweet older gentleman, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. He will do well with older children or adults in the home. He gets along well with other dogs as well. You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.
Peach is about 2-years old, a cute girl adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She is a gentle soul who loves comfy chairs and chew toys. She would love a more experienced dog owner to guide her through life, but would be a fantastic fit for just about any family. Peach seems okay with cats! If you’re looking for a weekday snuggle-bug and a weekend hiking buddy, Peach is your girl. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Luke is a sweet, snuggly 8-year old boy, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals. He likes people, other dogs and cats. Luke is looking for a long term foster or adopter who can take care of him through a double TPLO surgery on both of his back knees. There is a 4-month recovery time for these surgeries and Pixie’s Pen Pals will cover all the vet costs. You can also donate to his surgery fund on their website: www.fetchacure.org.
Pip Pip and Cheerio are 7-year old bonded sisters, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. They are looking to go home together with a wonderful family. Both dogs are very friendly, social and love to play! They qualify for the Richmond SPCA’s “Seniors for Seniors” program, where adopters over the age of 60 can adopt them for a reduced fee and receive a free leash and bowl! You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Previously featured adoptable pets include…
Greyson is a handsome 4-year old Bluetick Hound, adoptable from the Henrico Humane Society. He is a very sweet dog and gets along great with other dogs. He is so people friendly that he’ll climb up into your lap if you let him! Greyson needs to be in a home with a 6-foot fence because he can get over a 4-foot chain link with ease. No apartments for Greyson because he sometimes like to sing with his hound voice! You can reach Henrico Humane at 804-262-6634.
Merry is a gorgeous Tabby, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. Her fur is very soft and she has a cute bib of white fur! She enjoys being handled and seems to get along well with other kitties. When she’s very happy, you can hear her loud purr! Merry enjoys lounging in cat trees and she likes playing with kitty toys. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Tonka is a very friendly 1-year old orange Tabby, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He loves every person and cat that he meets! Tonka enjoys being handled and loves to have his whiskers scratched. He’s very calm, but can be very playful when the situation dictates it. He’d be a great addition to any household. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Salsa is a 1-year old well-mannered lady, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She is looking for a nice family to call her own! She may need some patience while she warms up to new people and places, but will look to friends for reassurance. Once comfortable, Salsa loves getting affection and going for nice walks. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Red Bull is a beautiful 2-year old white cat, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. He has a very sweet demeanor and should do well in a home with other pets. RACC always offers two for one adoption fees on cats and kittens. You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.
Jessie is a beautiful 3-year old Pit mix, adoptable from Petersburg Animal Care & Control. She’s a little shy when she first meets you, but then is very playful once she knows you. She gets along well with other dogs and cats. Jessie walks nicely on a leash and loves to be close to you. You can reach Petersburg Animal Care & Control at 804-732-3654.
Charlotte and Amelia are 3-month old black kittens, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. They are looking to snuggle up to you and be your best friend. If you adopt from the Richmond SPCA, you automatically become a client of their low-cost Susan M. Markel veterinary hospital. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Miller is a little brown Tabby, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She is quite the social butterfly and loves to be around people and to play! Hanover Humane is looking for a special home for Miller, where she can receive a lot of TLC and her new owners can be mindful of her diet and not let her overeat. She is very good about eating her dry food and isn’t allowed to have any canned food or treats. Miller doesn’t mind other cats, but she isn’t fond of dogs. Because of her activity level, she isn’t well-suited for a home with small children. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Paisley is a 9-year old cat, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. She is very sweet and kind, with a very calm demeanor. She’s happy to greet you at the door and give kisses, but just as happy to snuggle on a warm lap. Paisley loves other cats, kids and dogs…and gets along well with everyone! Unfortunately her caregiver passed away unexpectedly, leaving her to search for her new forever family.
Libbie is a little 5-year old Beagle, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She would do well with older children and possibly another dog. She can be discerning about other dogs and could very well be an only dog. We’re not sure how she would do with cats. Hanover Humane is trying to find her a home where she can be in a house with a backyard rather than an apartment or condominium. Libbie does well on a leash and is working on crate training. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
