Adoptable pets looking for their new home!

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

Mercedes is a petite grey and white little girl, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society.  She tends to be a little shy when she meets you, but is very loving and once she’s comfortable will enjoy being held in your lap, brushed or petted.  Because she’s a little shy, she’s looking for a quiet home where she can have another kitty companion.  You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.

LB is a small female beagle, about 3 years old, that is adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society.  She is very timid and quiet, the model pet!  She has a beautiful coat of fur that doesn’t require formal grooming.  LB seems to enjoy the company of calm kitties and would probably do well in a home with similarly calm dogs.  You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.

Pepper is a gorgeous 4-year old black cat, adoptable form the Richmond Animal League.  She is every bit as perky as you might imagine!  She’s extremely affectionate and very chatty, and loves to sit with you while you work.  Pepper would love a home with people who like to pay attention to their cat.  She seems to do well with dogs her size, but she’s very outgoing and could learn to love a lot of new things!  She is positive for FIV, but can lead and happy and healthy life with other cats as long as they respect her space.  You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.

Frances is a 4-year old dog, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA.  She is a social, sweet lady looking for a nice family to call her own.  She enjoys being surrounded by friends and wants all the affection she can get.  Frances doesn’t particularly like cats, but she love children!  You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

Muddy is a super Walker Hound, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society.  He had a rocky start in life, coming to Hanover Humane from the pound where he was a strong heartworm positive adult dog.  He’s now over his heartworm issues and on a monthly preventative.  His large ears intrigued one of Hanover Humane’s volunteers…hence, his name “Muddy Mudflaps!”  Muddy walks well on a leash and enjoys other canine companions.  You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.

Gwen is a sweet “senior” Schnauzer mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League.  At ten years old, she needs a little extra attention that would include a prescription diet…but she doesn’t let it get her down!  She’s the perfect companion for someone who prefers a chill life, and would look fantastic sitting beside you on a porch swing while you enjoy some lemonade!  You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
