Operation Silent Night (12/7 - 12/21)

December 4, 2018

UPDATE (12.13.2018):

There are just EIGHT days left of Operation Silent Night! We really need your help! Last week's snow storm has unfortunately slowed down adoptions. Fewer dogs and cats finding homes means less space for other animals in need who are coming to RAL.

Here's how people can help:

Spread the word! Share the event on social media !

Adopt! Adoption hours are extended Monday-Friday from 12-8pm and Saturday-Sunday from 12-4pm. Plus, adoption fees for adult dogs, cats and kittens are only $10!

Foster! There will be dogs and cats who will need a home for a short amount of time (December 20/21 to January 3). Fill out a foster application here!

The most magical time of the year is here! Join us for the 8th annual Operation Silent Night December 7-22nd. 

An event that began as crazy idea in 2011 is now entering its 7th year, with a hope to find homes for 175-200 homeless pets in Central Virginia this holiday season. Operation Silent Night is a holiday adoption event that enables RAL to ensure that every animal is home for the holidays. 

During the event, fees for all adult dogs, adult cats, and kittens will be reduced to $10. 

Operation Silent Night hours are as follows: Monday through Friday, 12pm to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday 12pm to 6pm. 

The 2018 Luminaria Ceremony will be held December 22, the final evening of Operation Silent Night. The event will begin at 5:30pm with the lighting of the luminaries. Guests are welcome to walk around and visit the shelter. The ceremony will start at 6:00pm.

Those pets not adopted by December 22 will be placed in a loving foster home for the holidays. To learn more about fostering a pet for the holidays, email Andi at Andi@ral.org
