PETS BEING RE-HOMED

Still looking for the right match for you and your family? The dogs and cats listed below are being re-homed by members of our community. These pets are not at our humane center and all arrangements to meet with the animals presented on this page must be made directly with their guardians. Please note that the Richmond SPCA accepts no responsibility for the pets posted to this page. Potential adopters are responsible for communicating with the pet's guardian to acquire veterinary records and other necessary information and supplies.

This free re-homing service is a component of the Richmond SPCA's lifesaving Project Safety Net program. Please click here if you would like to post your own pet's photo and description to find a home for a dog or cat you can no longer care for.

Khaleesi


Khaleesi
Khaleesi is a 2-year-old dilute calico female. She came to us as a stray with kittens and we have taken care of her for around a year. We brought her inside during the cold months and she acclimated quickly and has proved herself to be a sweet and darling cat. Khaleesi can be a little shy at first, but has a very sweet disposition. Khaleesi is spayed and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations. If you have room in your heart for her, please contact nellrva@gmail.com or call 804-307-1460.

Kitty


Kitty
Kitty is a 7-year-old female cat. She showed up as a skinny stray in our neighborhood and we have been caring for her. Kitty is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She will knead on you, purr and even drool when content. She would prefer a home without dogs as she does not get along well with our dog. Kitty is spayed, declawed and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations. Please contact Jennifer at 804-269-1258 if you are interested in learning more about Kitty.

RoxyRoxy


Roxy
Roxy is a pit bull terrier and is about 2-years-old. She is house-trained and has learned several commands, such as, sit, lie down, and shake. Roxy is a fun-loving dog who would make a great addition to a family with no small children or animals. She loves to play tug-of-war, but also enjoys cuddling and is very easy-going. Roxy is a quick learner and would benefit from training, but she is a quiet, submissive dog who loves everyone. Roxy is spayed and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations. She will come with a crate, food bowls, food storage, leash, and harness. Please contact Tonya at 540-205-4783 or email kern.tonya0802@gmail.com with questions or to meet Roxy.

PogoPogo


Pogo
Pogo is a sweet 14-year-old female orange tabby cat (rare!) who I've had since she was a 6-week-old kitten. She is smart and loving and amazing, but my wife is severely allergic, and I have to find her a new home. She is fine around dogs (used to live with one) and kids (currently lives with one). She loves people – she will walk right up to you and start talking, rubbing and flopping around your feet (hoping you’ll scratch and pet her, of course). She still has her claws, so she is happy both inside or out, but never ventures further than the yard because she likes being close to "her" space. She loves to snuggle and purr - a lap cat if there ever was one. Pogo is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She has always used the litter box. She is very healthy for her age (the vet commented that her teeth are in better shape than cats half her age). Like many older cats, she has a thyroid issue, and takes a pill twice per day to keep it from getting out of whack. I love her, and I am sad to have to give her up, but I have no choice. If you adopt her I will be happy to continue to pay for all of her routine medical expenses (thyroid medication, vet check-ups, etc.). Please contact Brad at (434) 882-3212 or email me at bradperry.virginia@gmail.com if you are interested in precious Pogo.

HollandaiseHollandaise


Hollandaise
Hollandaise is a pretty petite 8-ish pound fur ball of love and oh boy will she tell you about it (she is one chatty cat)! She showed up on my door step in late June and when I contacted her previous owner (she is chipped) the woman was not interested in taking her back. Even though I was not looking to adopt a pet at the time I figured that I would try and make this work for her. Unfortunately, all the reasons why I was not looking to adopt at the time have only gotten worse (unpredictable schedule, travel, etc.) and neither Hollandaise nor I are happy with how things are going. She is a kitty who likes her human(s) around and wants a lot of attention and affection. She loves everyone but is a little skittish around younger children (however, she has never has scratched or bitten). She has been a regular at Cary Street Vet, first to get her all back in working order after her time on the mean, mean streets and after for boarding, so she is all up on shots and has been spayed. Contact Stacy at stacysimms@gmail.com to learn more.

PhineasPhineasPhineas


Phineas
Hi! My name is Phineas and I am looking for a new home. I am a 5 year old, 60 pound male wolfhound terrier mix. I am neutered and up to date on my vaccinations. I do well with children, love to talk walks around the neighborhood and enjoy going to the dog park. I am friendly with most other dogs once I get to know them but don’t enjoy the company of little dogs (they are just too fun to chase!). I have a lot of energy but also enjoy laying out in the sun and sleeping. If you would like to learn more about me, pelase contact Elaine at elrichard@aol.com or 804-245-1572.

DandelionDandelionDandelion


Dandelion
Dandelion is a beautiful brindle mixed breed, possibly with some mastiff or shar pei. She is almost 3 years old and is full of energy. She can be timid at first but once she warms up to you she may never want to leave your side. She loves to play with humans and other dogs. She is very intelligent and aims to please, so she is easily trainable. While she is very active outside, she loves to be lazy and sleep when she is indoors. Dandelion loves company, so she would do well in a multi-dog home. However, she needs to be in a cat-free and child-free home. She is bright, healthy and typically quiet. She is up to date on vaccines and is spayed. She is muscular and makes a strong impression, but is a real gentle sweet-heart. For more information on this lovely lady, please email ciszekjh@yahoo.com.

Tango


Tango
Tango, is a 3-year-old terrier/chihuahua mix. He is current on all shots. Tango is very much loved but he needs more attention. He is not completely house trained (he will go in the house if he is not watched). Tango has been neutered. I am leaving the country in a month and have to find a new home for him. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more: 804-513-1666 or rcbeverly51@verizon.net.

GizmoGizmo


Gizmo
Gizmo is a 2-year-old chihuahua/terrier mix. She is a very sweet and gentle companion. She enjoys going for walks and running around outdoors. Gizmo would likely do best in an adult-only home, preferably with a single adult. She can be timid at first, especially around men, but once she has fallen in love with you she is attached! She becomes very comfortable and outgoing around the person she bonds with. She loves to give kisses! She will make a wonderful companion for someone who has time to work with her and give her the singular attention she needs. Gizmo does well with other dogs, but it taks her a few days to get used to the idea of being around a new canine friend. She has the tendency to become a bit jealous. Gizmo has been spayed and is up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in giving Gizmo a great home, please contact Rhobyn at 804-240-2034.

MaebeMaebe


Maebe
Maebe is a 1-year-old, female German shepherd/bloodhound mix. When she was 7 months old she was involved in a “hit and run” accident. The car hit her in a way that affected her growth plate and resulted in her having a short back leg. That doesn’t stop her from being the fastest runner at the dog park though! At her most recent vet visit the vet did a few x-rays on her hips and leg just to see how things healed. Unfortunately, the results were not very good and will cost a couple thousand dollars. Her pain and joint care is now being managed with taking pills every 8-12 hours, and with my work schedule and my husband being deployed I do not have time to keep up with her medication along with her energy level. I also do not have the money to get her the surgeries that she needs to recover fully so she doesn't have to take pills for the rest of her life. I love this dog and it hurts me knowing that I can’t fully provide for her medical care or keep up with her medications. Maebe loves other dogs and children, she would really be the perfect dog for a big family. She loves to be around people at every opportunity. I hope to find a loving home that can give her what she needs medically and physically, and of course to love her as much as my husband and I do if not more. Maebe is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Please call or email Alyson to learn more: aalysonnn@gmail.com or 804-551-4005.

Baby


Baby
Baby came to our home last summer. He was my mother's baby and when she passed away, we brought him into our home. He is an 8-year-old neutered male. His last vet visit was at the Shady Grove Animal Clinic last summer. All of his shots were updated then. He is indoor/outdoor and has been treated with Frontline Plus. He is a domestic short hair tuxedo cat. He is very sweet to all people (including small children) and gives great hugs but unfortunately, does not get along well with our other cats. Please contact lostchick72@gmail.com or 804-869-4754 if you are interested in learning more. Thank you!

Gladys


Gladys
Gladys is a 3-year-old stray dilute calico cat who has been living in our neighborhood. We've given her a shelter and when the weather is severe she happily stays in our work shed and uses a litter box. She's a cheerful outside cat but she really wants to come in the house and she deserves a safe, warm, indoor-only home. She tolerates the two feral cats that also live in our yard and she greets my indoor cats when I walk them, but she doesn't actively seek out the company of other cats or attempt to play with them. She's very silly, talkative and playful with people, but she will also let you know when she doesn’t want to be petted anymore. Gladys would probably do best in a home with no small children. We do not know how well she would do with dogs. Gladys is spayed and has received a rabies vaccine, but is due again. I'd be happy to help cover the cost of a feline leukemia test at any low-cost clinic. Contact Judy at (804) 717-2314 or email me at judyevers@live.com if you are interested in sweet Gladys.

Leo


Leo
Leo is a 9 1/2 year old Maltese. He weighs approximately 18 to 20 pounds (a little larger for a Maltese, but very lovable). Leo loves to snuggle, follow you around and just be with you. He's very sweet. Leo is paper trained, sleeps well in a crate at night, but enjoys sleeping on your bed when allowed. He has been an indoor dog, but would love to be outdoors as well. He would love to go for walks, etc. We are looking for a new home for Leo because we are not home a lot and think he would enjoy being with someone who could spend more time with him. He loves when anyone gives him attention and plays well with my young boys and their friends. Leo has not been around other dogs or cats, but he is calm when he meets them at the veterinary clinic or the groomer. Leo is neutered, just had his vaccines and had his teeth cleaned as well. He comes with the crate, tray (that we put the papers on), toys, etc. Please email me if you would like to learn more: melawood@verizon.net.

Judy


Judy
We are searching for a new loving home for our 5-year-old hound, Judy. She is laid back and enjoys spending her time outside exploring. She will not adjust to being crated; this will cause her great anxiety. She will need to be confined to a larger room/area, if necessary. Judy is housetrained, spayed and is current on her vaccines. She has adapted to living with another dog and although she is curious about the cat, she has not exhibited a “prey” tendency. Judy has been around both young and old children without any issues. Judy walks well on a leash and enjoys car rides. She has worked with a trainer and has learned simple voice commands. We are looking to rehome Judy to an environment where she will be more comfortable than our suburban neighborhood (a more rural setting or a home with a large fenced yard). Please contact Kathy at kaclopton@live.com or 804-432-2300 if you are interested in having Judy join your family.

Mickey


Mickey
Mickey is a very loving cat in search of a new home. Her owner had to move across the country and is not allowed to have pets. Mickey has been staying with “the grandparents” but we already have other cats and she is very particular about sharing her owner’s lap. She spends most of her time indoors, but enjoys a little time out on the deck in the sun when it’s warm. She has never tried to run away, seeming to enjoy keeping things simple and unadventurous. She is truly very sweet and loves to sit next to her owner, but really should be the only cat in the family. She also gets along with our two dogs (too big for anyone’s lap, however!). Mickey is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She is also current on all flea and tick preventatives. For more information, please contact ftehan@comcast.net.

PiperPiperPiper


Piper
Hi there! My name is Piper and I am a 2-year-old spayed black labrador retriever and beagle mix. I love people of all sorts. In fact, I would do anything to be with them; being alone makes me really anxious. I love my toys, and even though I try to be good, I chew on things if I don't have them. I love to talk, and will let you know if I want to go outside or if I'm feeling alone. If I am left alone outside I will try to escape, whether it be by jumping over a fence, chewing on my leash, squeezing through cracks, or even digging underneath things. (I’m a very social girl! I like to get out and run and meet people, okay?! Like I said, I don't like to be alone.) I get bored really quickly -- I'm the girl for active people and constant companions. I would do really well with a person that has the time and patience (and energy) to work with me in basic and agility training. I’m smart, but strong-headed, so patience and consistency are crucial with me. I really need a person or family that can spend lots of time with me, keeping me busy and entertained. I am up to date on my shots. I ask to go outside when I need to use the bathroom. I love animals and people. (Cats don’t necessarily like me, but I just want to play!) I’m sweet and loving. (And snuggly when I’m all tuckered out!) I love my current family, but they are just too busy to give me the time and attention that I crave. Please give me a happy new home! If you would like to meet me, please contact Jean at hstng241@live.com.

DeuceDeuce


Deuce
Deuce is a 3-year-old pit bull terrier and labrador retriever mix. He loves people of all ages and fetch is his favorite game. He is such a loyal dog to his humans and is partial to me. He is crate trained and received other training from K9 Adventures. After my husband and oldest dog passed away, he hasn’t done well with other dogs so he would need to be the only dog in a home. Deuce is up to date on all vaccinations and is neutered. If you would like to learn more about this handsome man, you can reach me at 804-986-4487 or ovcgirl1@aol.com.

HopeIrelandJuliet


Hope, Ireland and Juliet
I need to re-home my three cats, Hope, Ireland and Juliet, who have been with me since they were kittens because my fiancé is highly allergic. Each cat has their own personality and while it would be great if they could find an indoor-only home together it is not absolutely necessary. They are all up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, front declawed and are spayed or neutered.

Hope is a 7-year-old all white male. He was born deaf but it is hard to tell. He does everything the others do and the only time you remember that he is deaf is when you call him or tell him “no” and he ignores you. I always joke that Hope was sent from another planet to learn everything about life on earth and then report back to his home planet. He will not only watch you do something, he will study what you are doing and how you do it. He is not a lap cat but loves to sit or sleep at your feet or across the room.

Ireland is a 7-year-old grey and white male. He will run and hide when someone new enters the house, but once he gets to know you he will want to be next to you and rub against you and get your attention. Not so much a lap cat as a “next to your lap” cat. He and Hope both love to spend time on the screened porch.

Juliet is a 12-year-old calico female and a true lap cat. She does take up your whole lap since she has long hair and a mature body at 13 pounds. She is very motherly and will not hesitate to get between the two boys if their play gets a little too rough. When you are busy doing things she is happy to be off on her own. Getting up and down stairs is no problem for her but her days of jumping up on the counters or beds, without steps, is in the past.

Please contact Kevin at ksciuk@comcast.net or 804-310-9973 if you are interested in these awesome cats.

LucyTina


Lucy and Tina
We are looking for a new home for our two cats, Lucy and Tina.  For the past eight years, these girls have been fantastic members of the family, cuddle buddies and fellow world travelers.  However, our toddler has severe cat allergies and, with another baby on the way, we feel that we cannot meet the cats’ needs and wants that they so deserve. The girls do not need to be adopted together as they are not very fond of one another. 

Lucy is a 7-year-old domestic medium hair tortoiseshell. She weighs 11 pounds and is full of spunk. Lucy is gorgeous and she knows it. She loves to cuddle on her own terms and enjoys being in the middle of all household activities, especially Christmas tree decorating. Lucy’s one quirk is that she will not drink still water and must have her water fountain (which we will give to whoever adopts her). She would thrive as an only pet in a home with older children. Lucy is spayed, declawed, microchipped and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations.

Tina is a 5-year-old domestic short hair calico. She was born on the streets of Osan in South Korea and we adopted her from the SPCA on base. Tina can be shy and timid at first, but warms up eventually and will be quite the lap cat. Tina is very curious and loves to explore everything. Her favorite time of the day is meal time. She would do best in a home with no children with an established and consistent routine and plenty of snuggles. We have a large cat tree that she enjoys and would like to give to whoever adopts her. Tina is spayed, declawed, microchipped and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations. Please contact Meagan at meagan.m.gallagher81@gmail.com for more information on Lucy and Tina.

GarminGarmin


Garmin
Abandoned at a veterinary clinic on a cold winter night, Garmin deserves much better. Garmin is a young adult, male, grey and white tuxedo domestic short hair cat. He is full of spunk and love. A curious kitty, he will want to be involved in whatever you are doing. He will place a paw on your leg as if to ask, “Can I see," yet all he really wants is for you to scratch his head and to curl up in your lap. He is equally happy chasing a ribbon or napping in the sun. Garmin has Feline Leukemia, meaning he must be an indoor-only cat and should only live with other Feline Leukemia positive cats. Despite his illness, Garmin will give nothing but love and deserves a loving, permanent home. Garmin is neutered and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations. If you would like to know more about Garmin, please email Jenny at Jenkins.426@gmail.com or call her at 330-715-8327.

Shadow


Shadow
Shadow is a 9-year-old long hair cat from Belgium. He is neutered and declawed. We have had him since he was 8 weeks old. He is very well behaved, likes to take naps in the sun and is not too terribly playful. He currently lives with two dogs and another male cat. The male cat was introduced to Shadow as a kitten; we do not know how he would fare with another adult, although he is very laid back. An impending move back to Europe dictates limiting the number of our pets. Shadow is ok with change, but it does take him some time to adjust. He is current on all vaccines. Please email JoLynda at babyjo1973@hotmail.com if you are interested in learning more about Shadow.

Hello! My name is Oskar. I am a 1-year-old Australian shepherd/cattle dog mix. I love going for car rides, visiting the park and cuddling up with my friends. I am a people-oriented pup and do well with people of all ages. I am full of energy and would do best with a family with a fenced in back yard so I can run outside and play! Please contact Maria at mbritt86@live.com to learn more about me. Thank you!

TeddyandZack


Teddy and Zack
Teddy and Zack are an inseparable pair looking for a great home together as they have been together for most of their lives. Teddy is a 7-year-old yorkie and Zack is an 8-year-old dachshund. Teddy has a spunky, fun personality and loves to do tricks (such as dancing, rolling over, peek-a-boo). He loves to get the center of attention and your heart! Zack is a shy and laid back but loves attention. He likes to lay right by your side while you pet him. They both love squeaky toys, walks for exercise, the (small) dog park and your attention. They would do best in a home without small children or other pets. Teddy and Zack are both neutered and have been seeing a vet regularly. If you are interested in learning more about Teddy and Zack, please email sinceregiggles@gmail.com.

ReubenReubenReuben


Reuben
This is Reuben. He's a total sweetheart! When the weather is nice he loves to be outside, whether it be going on a walk or playing in the yard. On rainy days he turns into a couch potato and is more than happy to lounge around and sleep all day! Reuben loves to be petted, and gets along great with anyone of any age who rubs his belly, plays with him and gives him treats! Unfortunately, due to unexpected complications in our household we are unable to keep him and are looking for the perfect home for him. He's a mixed breed and is about 3 or 4 years old. He is also currently up to date on all his vaccinations and neutered. He grew up with our Australian shepherd (who has just recently been re-homed) and got along well with her, however we are not sure how he would respond to other dogs. So, if you have other dogs we would like to allow them to meet first. He also has never been introduced to cats. It would be best if the new home did not have small exotic animals, such as hamsters, rats, or gerbils. If interested or want more information please contact us at 804-264-1129 or mtylerstewart@gmail.com. Thank you!

Dixie
Dixie is an 11-month-old canine in search of a new home. She is either a fox or walker hound mix. She gets along great with other dogs (trips to the dog park at her favorite!). She loves to chew and needs lots of chew toys or bones to keep busy with. She can be nervous around men, especially at first. She is house trained, crate trained and can also do a few tricks! I would prefer to rehome her to someone who could provide her with a lot of exercise either through activity or someone with a fenced in backyard for her to run around and play in. Dixie is spayed and up to date on all of her vaccinations. If you would like to learn more about Dixie, please contact Amy at 757-869-9301 or amyturnage@gmail.com.

MaxMolly


Max and Molly
These beautiful dogs are Max and Molly. Max is the chocolate Labrador retriever and Molly is the yellow Labrador retriever. They are both about 11-years-old and Max weighs around 95-100 pounds while Molly weighs about 85 pounds. We are looking for a new home because of some difficult situations at home. We have four dogs and an older adult with medical issues living with us in our home, which is very stressful. Max and Molly would do best together as they have been each other’s companion since puppyhood. Max did have separation issues as a young dog but these have lessened as he has aged. Max and Molly are both house-trained, but they need to go outside more frequently due to their age. Both dogs are healthy but Molly shows signs of tenderness in her hips when she walks. They are friendly with people and other animals and would probably do best in a quiet, adult-only home with a backyard. Both dogs are up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations and have been neutered and spayed, respectively. If you are interested or have any questions or concerns please call either 804-357-5659 or 804-363-1962 and ask for either Russ or Kim.

Budd


Budder Cup
Budder Cup (Budd) is a 2-year-old labrador retriever/pit bull terrier mix is in need of a loving home. He is a large dog that weighs about 50 pounds. He is loyal, playful and loving with adults and children, but he is not certain about others dogs (we have not had him around other dog, but when walking he will sometimes bark at them). However, he likes to play with our cat! Budd is house trained and crate trained. He is an indoor dog, but loves to sun himself in our back yard on warm days. He does not bark when left outside. He loves to go on walks and he will jog. In addition, he has never chewed on our furniture nor has he ever destroyed any household items (we use the crate for training and leave him free to roam in the house, when our family goes out) but he needs ropes (we make homemade ropes from old t-shirts) or hard bones to chew on. Budder Cup has manners and some training. He will sit and lay down. We almost have his greeting manners worked out. He sometimes jumps when you or company first arrive, but knows he shouldn’t. Budd would be great family pet or companion for an adult. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate him at a 7 for maintenance. He would most certainly benefit from regular walks (at least once a day). He has very short hair, so he needs very little grooming, but we have been bathing him every ten days. He also needs to get his toe nails clipped every 8-10 weeks. Finally, he eats about three cups of dry dog food every day and training/reward treats. Budd is neutered and up to date on all vaccines. For more information please email at chstinne@msn.com.

Ellie
Ellie is a 6-month-old labrador retriever mix. She does very well in her crate, just needs a little encouragement when first going in, and is house trained. Ellie loves to be by your side around the house or going on a good run/walk. She does still pull a little on the leash but is getting better every day. Ellie is wonderful with other dogs and even enjoys the company of cats! Ellie is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. I am really sad to have to rehome her, however, my apartment complex has decided to charge per month now for dogs and I cannot afford it. For more information please call Brittany at 804-512-4814.

Sara
We would like to find a loving home for our dog, Sara (who has many nicknames, including Sara Bones). We adopted Sara from the Henrico Humane Society in 2006. She is an 8-year-old female hound mix with a black and tan mixed coat. She weighs about 50-55 pounds. We are rehoming her because she would likely do best in a home without small children. She is a nervous around new people and has become quite protective over our 14-month-old baby, her food and her sleeping area. Sara is well behaved in our home and in public, gets excitable when she hears and sees certain things on the television and happily alerts us to delivery trucks. She loves to go on walks, visit the beach, eat Milk Bones and run around in the backyard. She would love to find a home with a single individual or a couple without children. She is housetrained, spayed and up to date on vaccinations. If you would like to learn more about Sara, please contact Ray at 804-986-6155 or readams@comcast.net.

Maxwell is 2-year-old beagle mix. We have had him for 3 months but need to rehome him. We have a house full of pets and simply don’t have enough time to spend with him. He is timid and reserved. He does well with people of all ages, absolutely loves other dogs and gets alone fine with my cats (however, they do not mutually love him back!). We have been working on teaching him basic manners but he still has more to learn. In the past 3 months he has learned a lot. He walks well on leash and is crate trained. One of his favorite things to do is to run around with stuffed toys in his mouth! He would do best in a home with another dog (or two!) and with a big, fenced in back yard so he can run around a play!

Cloey is a wonderful cat and we are very sad to have to find her a new home. She is a very loving 9-year-old maine coon mix. We have had her in our home since she was a kitten and she has always been our ‘little baby’! She can best be described as being loyal, patient and loving. However, as our children have become mobile Cloey has had a lot of anxiety. She would do best in a home with no other animals, and where she has some space to have her own quiet time. Children are okay, but Cloey would probably be least anxious with older children who don't chase her and pull her tail. Cloey is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and has no known health issues.

Maddie is approximately 18 months old. She is a mix but I am uncertain of what breeds she is made up of. She enjoys being outside, playing fetch and snuggling! She gets along great with other dogs (of any size or gender). We do not have cats so I am uncertain of how she would do with one. She prefers not to be around younger children. Although she has never shown aggression with children, she doesn’t particularly enjoy having small children poke or pull on her. She is house trained but since she is still young, we do not leave her out if we are not at home or are sleeping. Maddie is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She is also current on her monthly flea/tick and heart worm preventatives. If you would like to learn more about Maddie, please call: 804-840-8329.

Loko and Milo
Hi, all! Loko and Milo are one-year old tabby domestic short hair males (and litter mates). Loko has a little bit of white, and Milo is all orange. They are both neutered and up to date with their vaccines. I’m looking for someone to foster my boys for a year and a half to two years due to an issue with my lease Loko and Milo are terribly sweet, however, Loks is more of a people-oriented cat and Milo likes to hang around and receive attention, but he's not as close and personal. Both are amazingly friendly kitties, though! Neither of them bite or scratch (unless you rub their tummies without their consent). You'll find Loko on your chest or right by your head when asleep, and Milo will probably be at the foot of your bed or somewhere close by. They go nuts for some wet food and their catnip toys! I really do love these guys more than anything, and that's why we're looking for foster care rather than taking re-homing them permanently. I want us to be able to be a family again once this contract is up! If you're interested in meeting them, or have questions, please feel free to call Laily at 202-652-5026 or send an email to yeaitsme3@gmail.com. Thank you!

Bailey would love a home with a fenced in backyard so he can run around to get some of his energy out. He loves to play with toys and rubber balls. His favorite game is tug but loves fetch as well. I am rehoming Bailey because I have to move and cannot afford a home that is large enough for the two of us. He would do best in a home without other dogs or small children. Bailey is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Please contact Amanda at 804-647-8403 if you would like to learn more about this sweet canine.

EmbryEmbryEmbryEmbryEmbryEmbryEmbry


Embry, Flash, Spark and Ash
These felines are four 1-year-old brothers who get along well with each other, other cats and kittens. They were born in an abandoned house and were living in the walls of the house before I was able to catch them. I was able to take them in and get them medical attention. They were born with an eye condition, but have since had eye surgery to correct it. They do not require special medical attention, just regular check-ups. They need to be indoor-only cats. They don't see perfectly, but run, jump and play like any other cats. I prefer to adopt them in pairs if at all possible, but I need to find them good homes as soon as possible, as I am moving out of the country and can't take any extra cats with me (I already have four). They are extremely good-natured and enjoy companionship. These cats are all up to date on vaccinations, have had regular vet check-ups and have all been fixed. Please contact me at 804-937-3532 and leave a voice message with your contact information or email me at rachel.elves@gmail.com. These are fantastic cats, and I really want to make sure they get good homes.

Embry (brown and black tabby) - He's a sweet little cat who loves cuddles, sitting on laps and being picked up. He purrs a lot, will greet you at the door and will follow you around the house to keep you company.

Ash (black short hair) - Ash is a beautiful, sleek, black, panther-like cat who has an endearing personality. He likes to sleep beside you or at your feet at night, and will purr and knead. He will go to whatever room you are in and just likes to hang out with you quietly. He adores cuddling and getting baths from other cats. He loves to play. Ash is a bit skittish around people he doesn't know. He couldn't see well until after his surgery, and he is still a little scared from time to time.

Flash (brown and black tabby) – He’s a friendly little guy who likes to bump heads with you and rub against you because he's so happy to see you! He likes being picked up and will cuddle next to you at night. He loves to perch at windows or on dressers or other high places.

Spark (brown and black tabby) – He has beautiful markings and soft fur. He is really playful and likes to play with you or other cats, and to get exercise by running around the house a few times a day. Every evening and morning he makes sure to cuddle with you - he will purr and knead and will snuggle next to you for a while. He is a more independent type of cat who is still very affectionate.

This is Jasmine and Abu. They are 7 years old and yes, both cats are named after Aladdin. They fit the part perfectly! Jasmine, the white and tabby cat is quite a little princess. We call her our daytime cuddler because if you are home during the day, get ready for some serious cuddles and lots of bread-making! She is as sweet as they come. Abu, our little monkey, is part Bengal cat. He is probably more like a dog than a cat! He will wait for you to come home by the door, loves to play with toys and loves to play in running water. He becomes a cuddle monster and won’t leave your side at night though. Together, they are an amazing pair of felines with lots of love to give. It is breaking our heart to re-home them but we must due to severe allergies in the family. Jasmine and Abu are both up to date on shots and are also spayed/neutered.  They will come with two cat litter boxes, a one month supply of litter and food.  They get along great with dogs and kids. If interested in meeting them, please email kelli.martines@gmail.com or call 804-432-2150.

Bonnie


Bonnie
Bonnie is an 11-year-old brown tabby and in good health. She is spayed and vaccinated. Her look is a very sleek. She is a declawed, litter trained, indoor only kitty. She likes her litter mate but does not like the other household cats and treats them badly. She therefore lives in a nice sun porch to keep the peace. Bonnie would do well with a stay at home, one cat owner without children or dogs. This would allow her to have the “run of the house” and more attention. She could be the princess! She is a little anxious but can be affectionate once she adjusts to someone new. Bonnie will sometimes “make bread” by kneading your arm or leg when with you. Her favorite spot is the top shelf of her cat “condo” by the window where she loves to watch birds. She likes getting in cardboard boxes and her favorite game is playing with a piece of string or rope with her owner. She also has a toy squirrel tail she loves to carry around! Please call Diane at (804) 814-2962 to provide Bonnie a new home.

Edith
We are looking for a new forever home for our fabulous cat, Edith Wharton! Edith is up to date on all of her shots and she is spayed. She is also declawed in the front, so she is an inside-the-house kitty only. I found Edith six years ago in a Fan alley on Valentine's Day evening. I love her so much, but we are getting ready to travel a lot due to my husband's new job. Edith is a solid cat. She's lounges around, she's laid back and she's not afraid of things. She loves to be with people and definitely needs someone who wants a close companion. Be prepared to snuggle.  Edith would be great for a single person, a couple, or a family who wants to lavish lots of love and attention on her. I think she'd be ok with dogs who like cats and who are laid back and not high energy. Please contact me (Elizabeth) by calling or texting 804-929-4747 if you are interested in adopting our sweet furry friend Edith Wharton.

Caramel


Caramel
Meet Caramel! She is a 9 year old medium sized (42ish lbs.), Aussie/Shepherd mix with black/brown brindle coloring who is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her shots. She LOVES attention and has never had issues with people. She is completely housebroken and crate trained, but we have not had to use the crate for several years. She'll do just about anything for a treat and, as a result, has mastered her basic commands of "sit", "lay down" and "stay" in addition to party tricks like "up", "paw", and "speak." Because of her age, she prefers to snore most of the day away, but she can still run our 3-year-old Cattle Dog into the ground without blinking. She loves car rides, and has no issues with long trips. Caramel operates best in a home where she is the only dog (cats/other animals are not a problem for her). If you would like to meet Caramel, please email Nichole at nknapp@dnepc.com. Thank you!

Gus


Gus
Hi! My name is Gus, Gussy, GusBear, Puppy and Dog! I am an almost 8-year-old Chihuahua/Pug mix. I have adorable floppy ears, a curly tail, a round body (I might be a little on the overweight side by more pounds then I care to mention! My human says I weigh, 22lbs... but who is counting, right!?) and the sweetest personality. I love everybody!! I am a lover and snuggling is my favorite activity. I need a home and a family that has lots of time for those snuggles. My family now has gotten too busy for me and it isn't fair to me or my poor little bladder. I would do great in a home with maybe a retired human that could take me on walks, let me out to do my "business" often and wouldn't mind letting me sit on their lap ALL the time! If that human had grand kids that might visit or we could visit that would be great... I love kids and road trips! I am not really a talker. I only bark when I have something important to say and I know you would want to hear it, like, when someone is at the door or there is a strange noise outside. I am honestly the most laid back dog. I love lying on the couch and watching TV. I love sleeping curled up in blankets and if I am allowed in the human bed sleeping at someone's feet. My family is so sad at the thought of letting me go, but they know that I will find the perfect home and new family to love me just as much as they do. If you would like to meet me or have any questions my humans have an email: enmcallister@gmail.com. If you think you could love me, please, send an email because I would love to meet you! Love, Gus (via his human, Nicole)

Lucy


Lucy
Lucy is a sweet pit bull terrier and weimaraner mix. She is a little over 1 year old, spayed and up to date on all of her shots. She is very active and would love to be taken on lots of walks. She likes lots of attention and could benefit greatly from training. She is great with our two daughters, but we have another on the way and we think that Lucy would be better in a home where she can get more attention. Please contact Eric at 804-325-3105 or ericdecatur@yahoo.com.

Ombra


Ombra
Ombra (French for "Shadow") was rescued by her owner nine years ago when she appeared on the back deck. At the time, a French foreign exchange student was living with the family and gave her the name Ombra because of her short-haired gray coat. Upon being rescued, Ombra was spayed and tested negative for FeLV/FIV. She has since been declawed and continues to get fantastic reports at her annual checkups. She is up to date on her vaccinations. Ombra is now 10 and her owners are relocating soon and will not be able to take her with them. She is a very sweet and loving indoor cat. Her favorite place is anywhere her owner is, laying in a lap. She loves to wait at the door when you come home and loves to sit and look out the window for you when you're gone. She even gives kitty kisses when you're petting her, which can make children a little nervous. Ombra does have a fear of dogs. If you're interested in more information on Ombra, please email cobbssi@gmail.com.

Kitten


Kitten
Kitten is an extremely cute and curious cat. She is about 8 years old and was literally born in a barn. She belonged to my previous wife who died and I have kept her since; however, I am going to be moving soon and my new landlord will not allow me to have her. Even though she is getting to be middle aged, she still has the look of a kitten about her and her name was well chosen. Kitten loves playing with water and will drink right out of the faucet. She can be a little nervous at first, but warms up to people pretty quickly and loves to lay on your chest or stomach. She is current with all her shots and has been spayed and microchipped. She currently lives with cats and dogs. Please email me at liliafan@gmail.com if you are interested in Kitten. Thanks!

Little Bull


Little Bull Dodson
Hello, my name is Little Bull. I was the runt of the litter, so my human grandma named me Little Bull. I now am the biggest puppy at 55 lbs. and have a brown and white coat. I am neutered and up to date on my shots. I would love to be adopted with one of my siblings because we are so close, but if that is not possible, it will be ok. I love to lie around and be petted. I can also be a bit of a mischief-maker, but it is all in good fun! I will need some help with house and crate training. I am currently working on walking on a leash and I am doing pretty well at it. I have never met a cat, so I am not sure if I would like them. I have only been around the other dogs in my family before. I have never met any children, but grandma hugs me a lot. There is one last important thing to know about me: I love to give kisses and sleep in grandma's bed. Well, that is all this is to say about me. Hope to meet the right new family soon!

Little Bull is one of a litter of six puppies (three boys and three girls) available for adoption. They are American Staffordshire Terrier and Razor Edge Bull Terrier mixes. They were born June 25, 2012. If you are interested in adopting one of these puppies, please contact Angelique at 804-502-1108 or Lee at 804-439-0484. Thank you for your interest!

Hello, my name is Teddy Bear. I currently weigh about 48 lbs. and have a reddish brown coat. I have all my shots and been spayed. I love to play with every human I meet and give them kisses. I also love to lay in bed with my human grandparents. I am a good cuddler, but I can also be very playful. I love to spend time with my brothers. I have never met a cat or another dog. I will need help with crate and house training. I have no experience with children, although my human grandma sure acts like one sometimes. I can be adopted with or without one of my siblings.

Winston

Winston
Winston came into my life very early on Thanksgiving morning in 1995 via a good friend who found him as a kitten on his newspaper route. My friend couldn’t keep the kitten (already named after Sir Winston “the Pushful” Churchill), so I took him in. Winston has been great company since. He’s a very friendly cat. He got along well with the other cat I adopted that year, but since my most recent cats arrived, Winston has not adjusted well. He is currently confined away from the other cats. He is now 17 years old and has arthritis, for which he takes a feline joint supplement. For more information about Winston, please contact Bill at pastshelfdate@i-c.net. Thanks!

Darla


Darla and Dixie
Dixie (brindle boxer mix) and Darla (tan pitt mix) are rescues. They have been spayed, treated for fleas/ticks, vaccinated, house/crate trained, etc. Due to unexpected changes in our household, we must find new homes for them as soon as possible and do not require that they be adopted as a pair. They are two years old, weigh about 30 lbs, are super friendly, and do best with children 6+ years old. They do not seem to get along well with cats, though, and will need plenty of exercise. While they still have puppy energy, they love just as much to be couch potatoes. Dixie is more docile and loves to follow you around the house while Darla is more playful and curious. If you would like to learn more about Dixie or Darla, or to come over for a visit, please email brownhl123@yahoo.com or call Claudia Brown (804) 221-5130. Thanks!

Pluto


Pluto
Pluto is an 11-year-old male cat who is neutered and up to date on all shots. He's a chubby, fluffy boy who loves to be petted and will follow you from room to room just to sleep near you wherever you are. He's also very playful and will "fetch" small cat toys and even wadded up bits of paper. He's lived mostly as an indoor cat. Pluto gets along well with other cats, dogs, and children – he never scratches or hisses! He needs a home with hardwood or other uncarpeted space to live in, as he does sometimes confuse carpeting and litter boxes. For a family with the right home, he will be a loving, amazing pet! For more information, please email jlcadwallader@gmail.com.

Maggie


Maggie
Maggie is about 1 year old and still has a lot of puppy in her! She is a fairly large dog weighing just shy of 60 lbs. We think she is an Irish Wolfhound/Black Lab mix, and it really shows in how affectionate she is with everyone she meets. She is spayed and fully vaccinated. She can definitely be excitable (not jumping up is hard when you're so happy!), but the high energy is all puppy-bursts and she spends more time lounging than roughhousing. She needs a home with structure and routine to help her be the best dog she can be. She's incredibly sweet and definitely a people dog; Maggie is eager to please... when she isn't distracted by that pesky squirrel! She does well with cats and dogs. She is housetrained with no destructive tendencies and walks relatively well on a leash (still pulls a little, but is getting better). Will she be the newest member of your family? For more info, email us at abigail.leigers@gmail.com.

Felix



Felix and Owen
Felix and Owen are 6-year-old brothers and need a new home. Felix is solid gray and loves attention. Owen is solid black and a bit shy, but really wants to be loved. We are both neutered and declawed.  Our mom adopted us two years ago, but our family has three dogs and we are very afraid of them. We are kept in a separate part of the house away from everybody, until at night when my mom goes to bed. We are healthy and have a regular diet. We aren't picky, but Tuna is our favorite. If you are interested in us please contact Angela at (804) 955-6859.
