FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: March 18, 2010Contact: Susan Kelly(804) 980.0725susan@ral.org AREA ANIMAL GROUPS FORM METRO RICHMOND PET SAVERS

(Richmond, VA)—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.

Founded by Richmond Animal League, Ring Dog Rescue and Chesterfield County Humane Society, participating groups will transfer dogs and cats from county/city shelters in the week preceding the Adopt-A-Thon. If not done prior to transfer, the Richmond Animal League will sterilize, microchip, vaccinate and heartworm test those animals at rates below the published prices for their Loving Spay + Neuter Clinic. read more

We’re hoping the blog will be more interactive, as we’re always up for comments and feedback on things that may be of interest to you. Don’t forget, you can also follow us on Facebook (search for ringdog@ringdogrescue.org) or feel free to sign up for our newsletter on the main page of our website. read more

Smiley

So Smiley came home yesterday after spending 3 weeks at Holiday Barn training with Melanie, and I’m happy to report that he is a different dog! Melanie taught him the “climb” command which is similar to stay and it actually works! Last night I had him climb on the dog bed and he stayed there until we went to bed. This is the first time we’ve been able to have Smiley out in the house with all of the other dogs – not because he is aggressive but because he is overwhelming! The “climb” command helps him with self control and as a result his life is going to be even more more rich than its ever been before! I cannot wait to see what Melanie does with the next dog! Thank you Melanie and Holiday Barn for giving Smiley a new lease on life! Stay tuned for more of Smiley’s adventures 😉 http://www.holidaybarn.com/ read more
