Jackson is a handsome and well-mannered pup, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals. He loves everyone and is great with people, kids, other dogs and cats! He is easy going and would make a great therapy dog or just a relaxed companion. He is the perfect boy! His house manners are wonderful and he doesn’t jump, counter surf, or beg for food.

Brumley is a 9-year old cat, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He has been described as the 15-pound brown Tabby embodiment of the personality of the famous fictional cat Garfield!

Previously featured adoptable pets include…
Sunny is a cute 3-month old kitten, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. He will follow you everywhere, play fetch and come when he is called. He’s still pretty little, but that doesn’t stop him from chasing his foster big brothers around and making sure they pay attention to him. Sunny will go anywhere with you and is thrilled to be in your arms. He’s so comfortable in his world that you can often find him laying on his back relaxing on a pillow. You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.
Hemming is a 4-year old dog, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He came to RAL with his tail wagging even though he was in rough shape. You’d never know it! Hemming is the sweetest, petite-ist hound on the block. He’s an adventurous and outdoorsy guy who likes long walks on summer nights to catch fireflies. After a weekend cookout, he’ll join you by the couch for an extended well-deserved nap. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Bella is a lovely tortoiseshell kitty, approximately 7 years old and adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She’s very calm and quiet, and seems very content to lounge in a sunbeam or sit beside you on the sofa. She seems to like other calm kitties and probably wouldn’t mind a cat-friendly dog that will allow her to have her space. Bella enjoys being groomed and doesn’t seem to mind being picked up and handled. She has been declawed in the front. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Hamburger Patty is an 8-year old Pit Bull mix, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. Hamburger was seized by an Animal Control Officer because he was severely neglected. Since being at the shelter, he has really come out of his shell and learned how to trust humans. He’s an easy-going dog, loves all people, and is good with other dogs. Hamburger is house trained, crate trained, walks great on a leash, and loves to give licks! You can reach RACC at 804-646-5575.
Mighty Joe is a 7-year old dog, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He is spunky and fun-loving! He likes to stay busy and is interested in learning as much as he can about new sights and smells. If you’re looking for a companion to add some extra love and laughter to your life, Mighty Joe might be your guy! You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Sochi is a 6-year old dog, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She is the ultimate cuddle bug! She’s as sweet as can be and would be the perfect pet for any family. Sochi is available for the “Seniors for Seniors” adoption special where adopters over the age of 60 can adopt her for a reduced fee and receive a free leash, bowl and other items. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Promise is a 5-year old lap cat, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. She will greet you at the door and seek you out if she doesn’t know what you’re up to. She seems to do well with other cats and would appreciate a home where she gets a lot of affection. Overall, she’s quite vivacious! You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Yoshi is a fun-loving and active lady dog, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals. She is a great jogging partner and can run alongside a bike too. She’s very smart and would be great in agility training. Yoshi also loves to snuggle! Bring her home and she will light up your life! You can reach Pixie’s Pen Pals at 804-525-2193.
Brendon Urie is a 3-month old kitten, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. He’s named after the lead singer in Panic! He’s an adorable, very friendly kitty who would love to be your new best friend. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Princess Kate is an 8-year old girl dog, adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. She would enjoy a quiet home where she can lounge in a comfy bed like a queen on her throne. Though she does well with other dogs, she would prefer to be the only royal canine in a household. You can reach the Richmond SPCA at 804-521-1307.
Buddy is a 2-year old Chihuahua, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He can be a little shy when he first meets you, but he warms up quickly. Buddy’s a lady’s man…he’s a nice, friendly little buy, but he absolutely adores women. Because he has a strong personality, buddy will not be placed in a home with small children. He may do okay with another dog, but he’ll probably need to meet the dog to see what he thinks! You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Bella is a 5-year old female cat, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. She adapts pretty quickly to any environment and craves attention. She also loves to be brushed and handled. Bella appears to like other cats and isn’t opposed to cat-friendly dogs. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
Marsala is a 3-month old, spunky and fun-loving kitten, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. She gets along with kids, other cats and dogs. Marsala is looking for her purr-fect forever home! You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.
Boldrock and Strongbow are two 3-month old energetic kittens (brothers), adoptable from the Richmond SPCA. They are FIV+, so they need to go to a home where they will be the only cats or partners for another FIV+ cat. Both are very healthy and can live happy, productive lives. During the month of July, you can adopt them both for a single adoption fee at the Richmond SPCA. You can contact them at 804-521-1307.
Daisy Duck is a 3-year old female Pit Bull, adoptable from Richmond Animal Care & Control. She came to the shelter completely shut down and did not trust anyone. With lots of time and patience, the RACC staff has been able to build Daisy’s confidence and she is now a blossoming young dog. Along the way, the staff discovered that she is deaf, but that doesn’t deter her. She loves to make new friends (people and dogs), and enjoys running and playing outside. You can contact RACC at 804-646-5575.
Beauregard is a handsome 5-year old cat, adoptable from the Richmond Animal League. He is affectionately nicknamed “Beau Beau” and knows how to sway the soul with love songs! Don’t care that he’s a crooner? He’ll follow you from room to room (although he might be a little slow–he is working on three legs!) just to be by your side. If that wasn’t enough to win you, his lush salt and pepper fur and perfect chubby cheeks will melt hearts faster than the summer sun. You can reach RAL at 804-379-0046.
Hoot is a 10-week old Tabby kitten, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue. She loves everyone she meets and gets along well with other cats, dogs and kids. She’s always up for a snuggle…playful and sweet and even gives kisses! You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.
Riggens is a 4-year old Beagle/Bassett, adoptable from the Hanover Humane Society. He enjoys frolicking in Hanover Humane’s play yard and playing with toys! While he’s playful and affectionate, Riggens has a mind of his own and can be a little strong-willed. He’ll need a home with an experienced dog owner, and he will need to be in a home without children. You can reach Hanover Humane at 804-798-8248.
