Adopt a Furry Friend: Callahan

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Meet our furry friend of the week named Callahan.

Tabitha Treloar with the Richmond SPCA says Callahan had a terrible upper respiratory infection when she was transferred to the Richmond SPCA’s humane center from RACC in August.

For more than a month, she was under the care of our veterinary team. Fortunately, with antibiotics, fluids and TLC, Callahan is doing much better today.

The Richmond SPCA’s Cinderella Fund provided her lifesaving medical care, as it did for more than 3,600 sick, injured and neonatal pets last year.

This sleek black 1-year-old cat is very outgoing. She greets new friends with head butting and loud purring.

“The gratitude she shows to the medical team who saved her life is a good indication of the affection she’ll show the special person who gives her a home,” Treloar said.

Low-cost veterinary care is available for pets adopted from the Richmond SPCA at the Susan M. Markel Veterinary Hospital. The hospital is now accepting new income-qualified clients. Information is available here.
