No upcoming events at the moment

With the safety of our potential adopters, volunteers, adoptable pets, and everyone's families in mind, we will be temporarily canceling our weekend adoption stands and have changed our typical event schedule based on restrictions related to COVID-19. We will be actively reviewing the situation to determine when we may safely resume our normal activities within the guidelines of the CDC, local authorities, and the broader Richmond-area community.

Anyone interested in our dogs should contact us via email at We will do our best to meet with qualified adopters privately as volunteer participation will allow.  Please also visit C.A.R.E. on Facebook to keep up with the latest news and find out more about any upcoming events.  We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
