Prism is a very sweet 1-year old Min Pin mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She is currently recovering in the shelter from having surgery on both of her back legs. She had a really bad case of “luxating patella” on both of her knees, which means her knees don’t bend in the right direction. The vet thinks Prism was probably born this way, and her condition doesn’t cause any pain but just makes it look odd when she walks. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Prince is a 4-year old German Shorthaired Pointer mix, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He enjoys spending time with people and giving lots of kisses. He is very active and likes long walks, as well as playing with tennis balls. Prince has epilepsy and his seizure condition requires medication as well as an adopter committed to continuing the treatment regimen established by the Richmond SPCA’s veterinary team to keep him healthy. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Hitch is a 1 1/2-year old Oriental mix, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He is a very energetic little guy that is very friendly and quite talkative.
