RICHMOND, Va. — These adoptable pets are being featured during Mike Goldberg’s Paws for Pets segments this weekend…
Russet is a 15-year old Shih Tzu mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He’s a senior guy that enjoys the company of other animals. If you’re looking for a companion who likes to lounge around and eat peanut butter, than Mr. Russ is your man! He’s a little hard of hearing and can’t see very well, but that incredibly cute nose still leads him where he needs to go! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Moana is a 3-year old black cat, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She is a very sweet and affectionate lady who loves to be pet and scratched on her head. She’s looking for a home with lots of comfy nap spots and cuddle time. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Penny is a very calm, one year old kitty, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She has a very soft coat of fur with light tabby markings. When Hanover Humane rescued her, she was in rough shape. However, with some TLC and great veterinary care, Penny quickly turned the corner and is now doing very well! She’s shy and would do best in a home with another calm kitty and possibly a calm dog. She’s not fond of small, active children or active dogs. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Alice is a 4-year old Beagle, adoptable from the Henrico Humane Society. You could not ask for a friendlier dog, as she just adores people! Alice does well with other dogs, but cats are an unknown. If you’re looking for a love bug, look no further…as Alice is your girl. You can reach Henrico Humane at 804-262-6634.
Previously featured adoptable pets include…
Titon is an amazingly sweet 6-year old dog, adoptable from Petersburg Animal Care & Control. He gets along well with other dogs and loves people. He bathes nicely, walks on a leash and takes treats gently. You can reach Petersburg Animal Care & Control at 804-732-3654.
Summer is a 7-month old black cat, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She is a laid back, social girl who enjoys being held. She lived with other cats and does well with them. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Harley is a 2-year old Pit Bull, adoptable from AARF. He’s playful and fun with other dogs, respectful of children and may even be good with cats. He loves to snuggles on the couch and sleeps quietly in his crate. One thing Harley needs is lots of toys. Balls may be his favorite, but a nice bone to chew on would be nice too. You can reach AARF at 804-254-0800.
Petunia is an 8-year old dog, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She is a beautiful lady you could not be sweeter! She is exceptionally friendly, calm and gentle. Petunia would love to spend her golden years curled up beside you with a blanket, watching the sunset. She is deeply trusting and likes a slow, leisurely walk. Due to her age, she would need to be on a special diet that would put less strain on her kidneys, but if you’re looking for a senior to save, she’s absolutely your girl! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Danny is a 7-year old black and white cat, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He is a big sweetheart who enjoys hanging out with friends and getting attention. He loves finding warm napping spots close to his people. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Madonna is a very calm, low-key kitty, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She came to Hanover Humane with her kittens and they have found a forever home. Now it’s Madonna’s turn! She has a very unusual coat of very soft fur with dilute tabby markings. She enjoys being handled and loves to have her ears rubbed. Madonna would do well in a home with another calm kitty, but doesn’t care for dogs or small children. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Elle is a sweet senior Pit Bull mix, about 9 years old, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. She is a cancer survivor that would love a home to be a couch potato and your best friend! She loves people and leisurely walks outside. You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.
Delora is a 9-year old sweet dog, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She would likely do well with children of any age, because she’s so gentle and tolerant. She doesn’t seem to mind cats, but she probably wouldn’t like being bothered by a younger, bouncier canine. Delora has a little bit of arthritis and hypertension, which does require medication, but it doesn’t stop her from being the most loving, sweet girl in the world! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Happy is a 2 1/2-year old Bulldog mix, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals. She loves to play with other dogs and can be a little rough and tumble. Happy loves to cuddle with her person and she loves a long game of fetch. She is partially deaf, which doesn’t seem to affect her temperament at all and she’s learned lots of hand signals. You can reach Pixie’s Pen Pals at 804-525-2193.
Andre is a 1-year old handsome cat, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He is social, outgoing and not afraid to ask for attention. He loves having his chin rubbed! You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Salome is a 2-year old kitty, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She is a unique looking little girl that has a lustrous coat. She tolerates being brushed and combed very well. Salome is very quiet and seems to get along well with other kitties. She enjoys being held and likes to rest in your lap. She’d be great in a household with other kitties and possibly a calm dog. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Magness is a very handsome 2-year old Great Pyrenees, adoptable from Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue. He is very lovable and energetic, and loves to run and play. He’s a big boy and currently weighs in at about 85 pounds. Magness enjoys his walks and will need a family comfortable with handling big dogs. The most important thing for Magness is a securely fenced in yard, since Great Pyrenees love to roam far and wide. You can reach Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue at 804-795-1369.

Thomas is a 3-month old kitten, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He came to RAL with his two brothers who were twice his size. They’ve since found homes, but little Thomas hasn’t given up trying to be just as big as them! He loves everyone and everything, and wants constant love in return. He doesn’t like being alone and would be the perfect companion for any cat, dog, or person! When it’s nap time, he finds the nearest lap and immediately purrs himself to sleep. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Kenny is a 2-year dog looking for a family to call his own and adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He’s a very relaxed and easy-going guy who enjoys walks and relaxing in comfortable beds. The one thing Kenny is looking for most in a family is lots of love and attention to share. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

You can reach AARF at 804-254-0800.
Maybelle is a gorgeous 1-year old kitty, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She is friendly, easy-going and a delight to spend time with. She eats special food to monitor a urinary condition, but is otherwise healthy and so happy! You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Penny is a calm little girl cat, just under a year old and adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She seems to do well with other kitties. She has not been socialized with children or dogs, but she may do well in a home with a calm dog. Penny enjoys being handled and likes being brushed. She is looking for a calm home where she can lay in a cat tree and snooze while her owners aren’t home and when they are, she can lay beside them, as she truly enjoys attention from her humans. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
