Hi, my name is Venus! Like the Roman goddess I'm named after, I am known for my love and beauty. However, I am also very smart and kind. My main hobbies include running around, smelling everything, and being the life of the party. I am an intense dog, so I am looking for a human who can handle my high energy lifestyle. I am unsure around other dogs at first, but given time, I learn my place in the pack. I don't get enough playtime here at the shelter. Please come out to RACC, so we can go on a walk together!

About Richmond Animal Care and Control

About Our Shelter...

Richmond Animal Care & Control (RACC) provides pet adoption, pet lost and found services, pet licensing, spay/neuter outreach and cruelty investigation for Richmond, VA. RACC operates the public animal shelter for the City of Richmond.

We depend on volunteers to help provide comfort and companionship to our pets awaiting adoption. We always need additional volunteers to cuddle our kitties, walk our pups, and assist with off-site adoption events!

Donate to Our Shelter...

Monetary donations may be made to Richmond Animal Welfare Foundation through the website http://www.richmondgov.com/AnimalControl/index.aspx

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption hours: Wed. - Friday, 1- 7 p.m.; Saturday, 12 - 5 p.m. and Sunday 12 - 4 pm. The shelter is located in 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.
