RICHMOND, Va. — These adoptable pets are being featured during Mike Goldberg’s Paws for Pets segments this weekend…
Javier is a loving and goofy dog, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals. He loves to snuggle and bonds with his people very closely. He loves playing with other dogs and car rides. Javier loves to lay at your feet and stay by your side. He has a wonderful personality, but does’t do well with cats. You can reach Pixie’s Pen Pals at 804-525-2193.
Wrangler is an adorable 3-month old kitten, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He and his brother Chaps are very loving, social kitties that love to be held. During November, the Richmond SPCA is offering 20% off all adoption fees. You can reach them at 804-521-1307.
Chaps is a 3-month old black kitten, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He is a loving, social kitty that loves to be held. He and his brother Wrangler are adoptable together! During November, the Richmond SPCA is offering 20% off all adoption fees. You can reach them at 804-521-1307.
Mindy is a beautiful senior dog, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She is patiently seeking a comfortable retirement home. Mindy is incredibly laid back and would probably be great in a home with younger children, even though she is a little hard of hearing. She could use a little help getting out of the house more and stretching her legs, because her all-time favorite activity is napping. She seems to do well with other dogs, but prefers petting to playtime. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Previously featured adoptable pets include…
Tonio is a 3-year old Hound mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He’s extremely dog saavy and would be a fantastic companion for anyone looking to add another pooch to their pack! He loves trips to the dog park, and does fairly well in the car. Tonio is adventurous and eager to please, although sometimes he can be a little sensitive about his food. He’s an extremely good snuggler, so while he isn’t much of a couch potato, he’d be happy to watch a movie and eat popcorn with you! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Bella is a 6-year old Sheltie/Pomeranian, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She has a very pleasing personality and has never met a stranger. She does well on a leash and her friends at Hanover Humane at currently working on her weight issue which involves diet and exercise. She is responding well to both! Bella would do well in a home with other canines and could be equally happy with just human companions. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Shrek is an 8-year old Chihuahua/Beagle mix, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He’s very shy with people initially, but quickly warms up. Even though he’s timid, he’s not afraid of new situations or meeting new dogs. He enjoys going out in public and does very well on a leash. Shrek would do well in a home with older children and a canine companion or two. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Autumn is a 1-year old cat, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She enjoys taking life slow and easy. She can be a bit apprehensive of new places and situations, so she asks that her friends and family offer reassurance as they spend time together. Hearing the soothing voice of her companion telling her it’s all going to be okay and that she’s doing a great job will give her comfort. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.

Cosmo is a 7-year old Beagle mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He could use an exercise buddy, but he’s very easy to walk!

Patrasche is a 5-year old Hound, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League.

Marzipan is a 7-year old Beagle/Bassett mix, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She is a friendly a dog as you will ever meet. She has a very sweet, happy-go-lucky nature and loves people almost as much as she loves fried chicken! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
