RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond Animal Care and Control is offering a special deal to make space for animals in need.

Starting Wednesday, June 22, adoption fees have been reduced from $100 to $20 until July 1.

RACC says they are offering the space to help make room for incoming pets.

“Our officers have been working very hard in the field and have multiple court cases pending conviction,” RACC wrote in a Facebook post. “Unfortunately, holding these animals for court takes up much needed cage space for incoming animals.”

To adopt a pet from RACC, you must be 18 years of age or older, provide a current photo ID (driver’s license or state ID card), and provide a carrier for your adopted cat or a leash and collar for your adopted dog. You must also complete an adoption application form and interview process to ensure that each pet adopted will be matched to the most compatible new owner.

The regular price for adoptions in $100, which includes a spay or neuter procedure, age-appropriate vaccinations, flea/tick treatment while in shelter, Heartworm/FIV test, and a microchip.

The adoption center is open Wednesday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday’s from noon to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
