We Were Adopted! September 26th – October 2nd.

Goose and 68 other pets found happiness this week!

Meet sweet Goose! This handsome man was brought into our care because if medical concerns with his bladder. With the help of AECC and Peaksview Animal Hospital, we got Goose healthy again and changed up his diet to help with future urinary care.

While being in our care we discovered that he is such a gentleman of a cat. Loves cuddles, pets, and all the attention. We aren’t surprised his new family snatched him up so quickly!

We are so happy for Goose and his new family! Thank you to everyone who came in and adopted this past week giving so many pets a home.

61 Pets found happiness this week!

Carrie came into our care back in June as a lost pet. She instantly became a staff and volunteer favorite with her sweet personality. The volunteers loved walking her and spending time with her in the play yards. Staff described her as a “sweet and gentle soul.”

The shelter life had started to become stressful for Carrie and we placed her into a foster home for a small break from the noise. Not long after her return from her foster vacation a sweet couple from NC noticed Carrie on our website and they decided to make the trip to come in and meet her, and it was love at first sight for Carrie and her new parents. Carrie packed her bags that same day and headed to NC with her new family. We are so happy for her and her new family.

We want to thank everyone who gave so many pets new homes and families to love. Also, a big thank you to Bank of the James for being this month’s adoption banner sponsor!

Sweet Shyla went home during our adoption special this weekend!

Shyla is a bundle of joy with a wagging tail that never seems to stop. From the moment she wakes up in the morning, she’s ready to take on the world with her playful spirit!

Shyla was one of our volunteer approved and petcation approved dogs here at the Center! Shyla was always going out on adventures with new buddies and was patiently waiting for someone to have a lifelong adventure with. Saturday that finally happened! Her new mom came in and wanted to know all about her. They instantly connected (we had no doubts there) and the rest is history.

Shyla, now known as Ms. Sasaphronie, is living her dream with new toys all her own, a new home, and most importantly a new family. We are so excited for them and this new journey together.

Thank you to everyone who adopted this past week! We would like to thank Melissa Anderson for sponsoring Shyla’s adoption fee, also a big thank you to Bank of the James for being this month’s adoption banner sponsor!

We Were Adopted! September 5th – 11th

Homer hit a home run! 36 other pets also found happiness this week!

Homer was brought into our care as a lost pet by a community member with a few health concerns. Our medical team went to work and got Homer feeling 100% again. The staff quickly found out that Homer was quite the cuddle bug. He loves pets, and sitting in laps any chance he can get.

On Friday a couple came in looking for a new addition to add to their family and spotted Homer. Well Homer hit it out of the park and it didn’t take them long to fall in love with his charming personality. We are so happy for them and their new journey together.

Thank you to everyone who adopted this past week and gave so many pets new homes. Also, a big thank you to Bank of the James for being this month’s adoption banner sponsor!

Adventurer Amity and 40 other pets found happiness this week!

Sweet Amity was one of our Volunteer approved and Petcation approved dog walks, which means she made MANY friends while being in our care.

She got to go on Petcations with those friends and visit all kinds of new places. She made her way to the Peaks of Otter in Bedford on one of those many adventures.

Amity also got to be featured in “Fido’s day off” with Beacon Credit Union. (You should check out the video if you haven’t seen it yet from their social media!) The spotlight from that video and her constant outings brought her new attention to the Center and she was finally adopted! We are so excited for Amity and her new mom and all the adventures she will get to continue to go on.
