From the Richmond SPCA:

    CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS OF LIVESAVING WITH PRIORITY

    Our friends at Priority Automotive and its associated Richmond-area dealerships are generously paying (for the fifth year in a row!) the adoption fee for every dog, cat, puppy or kitten adopted from the Richmond SPCA December 3 through 18, 2015. That’s right — you provide a precious homeless animal with a lifetime of love, and Priority will cover the adoption fee.

    Our center is full of amazing pets, of various shapes, sizes, ages and personalities, just waiting for a chance to become a family’s trusted and loyal companion, and we look forward to making their ultimate holiday wishes come true. By taking advantage of Priority’s generosity, and spreading the word about our adoption program to your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors, you’re also helping us to make way for the next animal in need whose life we will save. Thank you for your love of animals, and happy holidays!

    Adopters must be 18 years or older to adopt a pet from the Richmond SPCA and should bring photo identification that shows current address (a recent utility bill is acceptable if address on ID is not current). The Richmond SPCA reserves the right to deny an adoption. Please note that all puppies and adult dogs adopted from the Richmond SPCA must leave our care with an acceptable leash and collar, and every kitten and adult cat must leave our care in a safe and secure cat carrier. If these items are not with you at the time of the adoption, you will be required to purchase them in our Lora Robins Gift Shop, which has a fabulous selection of merchandise that is affordably priced with all proceeds benefitting our homeless animals.

    For more information about our holiday adoption special, please call 804-521-1307 or email adoption1@richmondspca.org. Happy Holidays!
