Each week all the dogs in the Powhatan County Animal Shelter will receive an adventure walk and photo session. This program aims to get the dogs out for exercise all while finding out more about each dog so that we can highlight those available for adoption. This program will work in conjunction with the RDR shelter enrichment treat program, Popsicles for Pups, and our regularly scheduled spa days, where each dog is treated to a bath and mani pedi.

Cold Weather Safety Tips
In the wake of a horrific tragedy, we find that many will jump to a conclusion based on the limited information that has been provided thus far. We are not going to justify or advocate for or against the animals directly involved in the death investigation of Bethany Stephens. Instead we wish to make a few statements regarding the information and several accounts made by the Goochland County Sheriffs Office, Internet comments, and the media.
Let us begin by acknowledging that a life has been lost, and respect should and must be given to the family. In turn, faith must be given to the investigation. No other person was present to witness the loss of life and at this point any assumptions or statements surrounding this tragedy are simply opinion and not fact. Until all evidence is brought forward to include toxicology and necropsies, one can only conclude based on incomplete information.
