Metro Richmond Pet Savers is a newly formed collaborative group of animal rescue groups and shelters who will take part in large, monthly Adopt-A-Thons in the parking lot of Richmond area PetSmart stores. The goal will be to accelerate the adoption of cats and dogs from county/city shelters that may otherwise be euthanized.
The first Adopt A Thon will take place on April 10, 2010 from 10am – 4pm at the PetSmart Store on CarMia Way in Chesterfield County. The targeted shelter for this month will be Chesterfield County Animal Shelter. The Adopt A Thons will take place monthly on the second Saturday of the month at different PetSmart stores (exact store locations will be announced in advance).
Participating animal rescues and shelters include AARF, Aussie Rescue and Placement, BARK, Bully Paws, Chesterfield County Animal Shelter, Give A Dog A Chance Rescue, Greyhound Pets of America, Henrico Animal Shelter, Hopewell Humane Society, Petersburg Animal Shelter, Powhatan Animal Control, Richmond Animal Care and Control, Rescue of Chained K9s, and Southside SPCA. read more
