Adoption Process

Every time you adopt a pet from the Richmond SPCA, you enable us to save the life of another orphaned animal in great need, and finding a great companion has never been easier! When you arrive at the Richmond SPCA, you'll be asked to fill out an Adopter Survey. This one-page survey gathers information about your expectations of pet ownership and helps us determine which animals might best suit your lifestyle. Based on the results of the survey, you'll receive a color-coded Guest Pass to help guide you to cats or dogs that best meet your expectations. Complete our interactive Meet Your Match adoption survey in advance of your visit.
