My name is Houston and I'm 2 years old and 70lbs. I get along great with other dogs and cats. I have only one wish. I want someone to love me! I want a nice home to call my own. I want someone to play with! Okay, I know that's technically 3 wishes...but maybe my new family is reading this and looking for a good dog of their very own! Come and meet me at the center Tuesday-Friday 12-6 and Saturday 11-4

All of our animals have a lifetime commitment. If for any reason, the adoption does not work out, the cats and dogs are to come back to FCHS, which is a NO kill facility. The adoption fees help cover a portion of the care provided to the animals. Please visit our website under adoptable pets for a range of adoptions fees. All pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested (dogs) and placed on preventative, microchipped, and more.

You can find our adoption application at www.plannedpethoodrockymount.com/adoption.html. Applications or questions can be emailed to adoptions@plannedpethoodrockymount.com. Please email for faster response or come on by during our business hours. Please do not call, this may cause delay because we receive a high volume of calls each day and operate with a small staff. Please submit your application once you see a pet you are interested in.

Adoption Center hours are Tuesday - Friday 12-6 and Saturday 11-4.

About Ring Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ring Dog Rescue is a 501c3 pit bull rescue organization based out of Richmond, Virginia. Our focus is on the rescue, rehabilitation and long term placement of pit bull-type dogs in our region, as well as on the continued and ongoing education of the general public on the true character of these dogs and their role in altering the current societal perception. In 2009, Ring Dog Rescue placed 87 dogs in loving, permanent homes across Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania and South Carolina, representing a 26% increase in dogs adopted from 2008. Our dogs come from various sources, including local kill-shelters, as strays or even as removals from neglectful situations. Our dogs are provided full and complete medical care, including spay and neuter, vaccines, microchips and remediation of any ailments the dog may suffer, placed in foster homes, taught to be a family dog and then placed in an adoptive home, after a thorough screening process.

Our Adoption Process...

Steps to adopt

1. Fill out an Adoption Application
2. Phone interview
3. Reference Checks
4. Meet and greet with the dog you are interested in (and any dogs you may have)
5. Home inspection
6. 1 week trial run (in home)
7. Finalize adoption (contract, collection of adoption fee and transfer of medical records)

Our adoption is fee $150.00, due at the end of your week trial, and includes spay or neuter, rabies (if of age), vaccinations, worming, microchip and any other medical required for the health of the particular animal.

The entire process can take 1-3 weeks to process, so please be patient and understand if you live outside of the Greater Richmond Area, the process may take longer. Our goal is to place the right bully in the right home.
