Operation Silent Night, an initiative of Richmond Animal League, secured adoption for 193 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies during the 15-day adoption event held over the recent holidays. During that time, 115 animals were pulled from local animal control partners and brought to the safety of RAL. With local sponsors and community support, RAL was able to send every animal home for the holidays. Foster homes were found for those animals that weren’t adopted by Dec. 22. Photos and information about adoptable pets can be found online at ral.org.
