RVA Animal Control Offers Discounted (Or FREE!) Adoptions For Valentine’s Day Weekend (Photos)
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a new love from Richmond Animal Care and Control! During this special weekend event, pets can be adopted for half the adoption fee, and pets that have lived with RACC for more than three months can be adopted for free. RACC guarantees that all pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and pups have been tested for heart-worm while kittens have been FIV/FELV tested.
RACC has plenty of happy animals that are looking for a new, loving home. Upon walking into the office, I was immediately drawn the small mew of an 8-week old kitten named Bulbasaur. Not only was this one of the friendliest kittens I have ever snuggled, Bulbasaur also loved being held, and mewed for more attention whenever she was put back down.
Across the room from Bulbasaur was the regal Jackie-Chan. Jackie- Chan is a female tortoise shell, and a very sweet cat. Unfortunately, she has been at RACC for more than a year. She is very nice, very sociable, but RACC needs to find her a home where she will be the only pet. Jackie Chan was very friendly, and also very agile and receptive to people.
Next, we were introduced to the whirlwind of a pup, Karl Malden. Karl raced towards us, happy to see people, to be out and about, and to meet the other pups who were passing through. Karl was so playful and energetic that it was almost too hard to get a good picture of him! Luckily, we still managed to snap a picture of that cute mug.
After our time with Karl, we were introduced to Ebby, who was drastically different from Karl. Ebby was hiding on the floor, behind the main desk, and just snoozing along as older pups do. However, when we approached him, he agreed to wake up for his photo-shoot. Ebby is twelve years old and a Labrador Retriever Mix. He was not an energetic dog, but was wonderfully friendly old dog that needs a good home.
These were only of few of the wonderful pups, kittens, bunnies, and guinea pigs that we got to meet. Have a look at all the the adorable pets in the gallery below:

Antony, who is relatively new to the world of journalism, is hoping to learn more about the business by working closely with the staff of GayRVA/RVA Mag. When not at work, Antony is likely to be found giving affection to a cat or sitting in his apartment with a book in his hands.
