Adoptable pets looking for their new home!

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – These adoptable pets are being featured during Mike Goldberg’s Paws for Pets segments this weekend…

Zed is a Pit Bull mix, adoptable from AARF. He’s a real sweet dog and is super laid back.  He has only three legs, but he doesn’t even notice most of the time! Most of his days are spent working the front desk at a gym or playing with his foster dog brothers. He loves everyone and can’t wait to meet you today! You can reach AARF at 804-254-0800.

Michelle is a 4-year old dog who is a true constant companion, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She’s hoping for a home with lots of napping and petting time. She gets along with other dogs and is overall very easygoing and loving. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

Kato is a medium-sized 5-year old Terrier mix, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. He’s a smart guy who wants to learn! He has a great smile and is quite a catch. You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.

Previously featured adoptable pets include…

Harmony is a 4-year old kitty, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She is eager to find a lap to snuggle in and gets along with other cats. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

Baby is a 5-month old kitten, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. She is very bonded with her twin sister. Her hobbies are playing with balls and wand toys, and her passions are snuggles and adoration from her human subjects. You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.

Salamanda is a stunning 11-year old feline, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She is ready to woo the world with her melodic purrs and silky fur. Salamanda grew up with another cat, and would probably be fine in a home with other pets as long as she’s given a proper introduction. She loves affection and has aspirations to travel the world as soon as she finishes her nap! She would be an excellent companion to anyone who’s looking for a laid back, charming friend. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.

Sam is a 5-year old Dachshund, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He’s a quiet, calm little guy that doesn’t have much confidence in himself. He will do well in a quiet home with a family that can provide him with a lot of TLC! He doesn’t seem to care for active children, as they make him nervous. Sam is very attentive and walks well on a leash!  You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.

Josephine is a 2-year old sweet and friendly Tabby, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She likes to spend her time around friends getting as much attention as possible.

You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

Nutty Buddy is a 1 1/2-year old Tri-Color Coonhound/Walker mix, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. He loves people and snuggling! He can be a bit nervous around other dogs, so it’s probably best if he’s the only dog in the home. You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.

Thomas is a 3-year old gorgeous white and brown Tabby, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He loves nap time, singing softly to his person and curling up with you to watch the Golden Girls! He tested positive for FIV, but that does not mean he cannot co-habitate with cats who tested negative, as long as everyone gets along. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.

Oreo is a 1-2 year old Pointer/Lab/Pit mix, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals. He is house-trained, crate-trained, walks well on a leash and is an all-around love bug! He is high energy and would love an active family. He’s also very gentle with children! Oreo would love kids of his own to play with and snuggle up to at night. He is dog friendly and good with calm cats. You can reach Pixie’s Pen Pals at 804-525-2193.

Vaporeon is a small, lovely black and white Jack Russell/Terrier mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She’s a snuggly, happy pooch who just takes a little time to settle in and get comfortable with her surroundings. She loves to be with her person, especially if they’re gentle and patient. Lady Vee, as she’s affectionately known, has been doing very well with slow, positive training, and would benefit from an owner who wants to help her be her best self. She loves car rides and will get right in to go! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.

Aura is an 11-year old sweetheart, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA and looking for a family that will love her unconditionally. She would be so content with a family to curl up with and snuggle the day away. She has won the hearts of many at the Richmond SPCA. You can reach them at 804-521-1307.

Gomez is a 5-year old Chihuahua, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He is a bit shy, but seems to warm up nicely when getting to know you. He’s looking for a calm home where he could be someone’s companion animal or could he be fine with a companion dog! You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.

Dusty is a 5-year old Beagle, adoptable from the Henrico Humane Society. He is good with other dogs and is a super love bug! Don’t let his size fool you, as he only weighs 30 pounds. Dusty hopes to find his forever home real soon! You can reach Henrico Humane at 804-262-6634.

Ethel is the only female in a litter of five (her brother Merlin is listed below), about 5 months old and adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. She is shy and quiet, all black with a little white bib on her chest. She’s been raised with four male kittens, so she can hold her own in a crowd! Ethel would do well with an experienced adult cat owner. You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.

Merlin is a sweet and curious 5-month old brown Tabby (his sister Ethel is listed above), adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. He has a very distinct “M” marking between his eyes, therefore the name Merlin. He is a purring machine and loves to have his tummy scratched. Merlin was the first in his litter to actively play. You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.

Big Guy is a handsome 15-pound cat and about  seven years old, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He is extremely sweet and likes to “talk” to his friends to ask for attention. He is diabetic and requires some special care to monitor his health, but he will repay you tenfold in love! You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

Apple McGee is a super sweet 2-year old Hound/Beagle mix, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control.  He loves everyone and everything!  He has a very gentle nature and is ready to be adopted! You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.

Ed is a 5-year old beautiful boy cat, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. If his gorgeous, silky white fur isn’t enough to impress, his stunning, calm personality certainly will! Ed is a very laid back, gentle cat who prefers nap time to just about everything else. He likes other cats, and will perk up for food and playtime, but overall he just really wants to curl up with you. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.

Beatrix is a very sweet 8-year old dog, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She enjoys taking things slow and is a very well-mannered pup. Beatrix can’t wait to join your family today!

Mr. Barnabus is a small bicolor white and orange kitty, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He’s a nice guy and loves to interact with humans! He’s playful and enjoys being held. Barnabus will do best in a home where he is the only kitty and can get a great deal of attention from his owners. You can reach the Hanover Humane Society at 804-798-8248.

Molly is a beautiful 5- month old kitten, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. She was born to shine and everyone who meets her falls in love because she has that unique dog-like personality. She enjoys walking on a leash, wants to be your shadow, and loves to cuddle. Now don’t worry, she’s still very much a kitty who thinks everything is a toy, purrs nonstop, and gives headbutts to show how much she adores you. Molly has never met a stranger and is more than happy to share her home with children, dogs and other cats. You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.

Earth is a 5-month old male kitten, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He’s a handsome black and white guy, who is very playful!  He is nervous around dogs though. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
