CGBB & Richmond Animal Care and Control

On May 5th, Yam Chop spent the day with our CGBB team and stole all of our hearts! Through Richmond Animal Care and Control’s Casual Friday Foster program, businesses have the opportunity to foster a shelter dog or cat at their office and give these animals a much-needed break from the shelter. Yam Chop is a two-year-old sweetheart who had the absolute best time hanging out with our team for the day and proved that she would make the perfect addition to someone’s family. A few days after her return to RACC, Yam Chop was adopted and went home with her forever family!

If you are interested in the RACC Casual Friday program, email [email protected] to sign up to host a RACC dog or cat at your office.
