These are fantastic dedicated individuals who take excellent care of disabled/abandoned and uncared for animals. I know I can trust them with my donations to put them to the best use. Thanks Rikki's Refuge! We love you!

Rikki's is a deeply dedicated group of people who provide a healthy, safe, and loving environment for a variety of unwanted animals. They rely on donations and the strong spirit of many volunteers to attend to every detail of the facility and all the animals.

My family visited Rikki's a few weeks ago. We were greatly impressed! The volunteers were the heart of the refuge. Their kindness, generosity and love for their animal family members was evident in their actions. No matter how hot, tired or stressed they were, each volunteer greeted us with waves or a smile. Even the dogs and cats greeted us! Each of the animals have a story and a history. They are each survivors. A tentative, hard-earned, new-found trust shone from their eyes. They have a home. They have food. They have LOVE. This is what we took away with us after our visit. We found the Spirit of Rikki's!

Without Rikki's we would have never had our dogs, Rachel, Schnappsy and Miss Daisy. All were old when we adopted them, and Rachel is going strong after 9 years with us. She loves life. Miss Daisy has been with us for a year. We would encourage everyone to adopt an older animal. There is no greater love.

My wife and I are part of Big Brothers Big Sisters and have taken our Little Brothers to Rikki's. While a bit stand-offish with some animals, it has been a way to help overcome their fear of animals. Rikki's is a wonderful refuge that gives animals an extended, safe life. It's a great place (that, of course, needs more funding)!! Bobby & Sally Anderson

My husband & I adopted "Dutchy" in 2003 from Rikki's. She is now 12 years old (we think) & is the sweetest dog we have ever owned. Her brother "Jack" loves her too & we can't imagine what life would be like if my husband had not gone out to Rikki's that day to see her. Even though she was skiddish of men, she went right up to my husband & he knew we had to adopt her. For my son's first birthday in 2006, we decided to have all the guests donate to Rikki's instead of buying birthday presents. It was such a joy to see how generous our friends & family were!!! I am so glad that Rikki's does what they do & hope that more shelters can do the same. Thanks Rikki's!

i found rikki's refuge when i became ill and was unable to care for a feral cat i had been caring for. They took my cat and have been caring for him for several years now. They were recommended by my local humane society. I could not be more pleased with the work that they do for the animals in their care.
