Stanley Yelnats's Story...
Stanley Yelnats's Story...
Stanley is a staff favorite at RACC. He is such a character, he will keep a smile on your face everyday. Stanley loves to play fetch and roll around in the grass. He is convinced he is a lap dog and enjoys a good belly rub. Stanley was not socialized with other dogs in his early years so his play style is rude and other dogs do not appreciate it. He needs to be the only pet in a home and no dog parks! No cats either! Primary Color: Black Weight: 54.4 Age: 4yrs 6mths 3wks
Address: 1600 Chamberlayne Avenue Richmond, VA 23222

Our Adoption Process...
Adopters are required to complete a written adoption application and meet with our adoption placement coordinator. Adoption fees cover the cost to spay/neuter, vaccinate, micro-chip and test for heart worms (dogs) and FIV/FELV (cats). Our adoption phone number is 804-646-5575. www.Richmondgov.com/animals
Those interested in adopting an animal from RAC&C must visit our shelter in person to meet and interact with the animals. Once a selection is made, the prospective adopter completes a two-page written application. The application is immediately reviewed by staff and will be approved on the spot unless the adoption staff feels this adopter and animal are not a suitable match. If the adoption is approved, the adopter pays the pet's adoption fee. If the animal is spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations, the pet may go home on the spot! If the animal is not spayed, our staff makes arrangements for the pet to be spayed/neutered at a local vet clinic. The adopter picks the pet up at RAC&C after the pet's surgery. Appointments are made quickly, and the adopter usually has the pet within a few days. Adoption fee - $100 Cats and kittens may be adopted two for the price of one! Pets age 9 years and older may be adopted for no fee with an approved application.
All City of Richmond, VA residents are legally required to purchase an annual $10.00 license for each pet owned.
