Richmond Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Overview
Programs: The Richmond SPCA places approximately 3,000 homeless pets from our community into loving, permanent homes annually. We take every healthy homeless animal at risk of euthanasia from the shelters of our municipal partners, Richmond and Hanover County, and, as space permits, from other shelters. Most adoptions occur in our Robins-Starr Humane Center which is painted in bright colors and features communal living environments for cats and private living rooms for dogs. There are expansive areas for training and exercise for the shelter pets. The physical environment is healthy and enriching for the pets and pleasant and accessible for visitors. Our mobile adoption vehicle, the “Tail Waggin,” goes to locations in the community with pets available for adoption. Through our Meet Your Match adoption program, we provide insight to potential adopters about each pet’s personality and a means to identify the best match for them. This program has proved highly successful at making lasting matches.
At all times and in every way, we will be advocates for animals. We will provide for their safety and comfort, strive to alleviate their suffering and work to place them in homes that will provide a responsible lifetime commitment to them. We will discourage all forms of animal cruelty and promote neutering to achieve and retain a no-kill community. We will endorse a philosophy of animal welfare that ends the taking of the lives of healthy and treatable animals to control their numbers. We will provide services that promote responsible pet ownership and humane attitudes toward all life.
