Rikki's Refuge stepped in to save a kitty that was abused and neglected by its owner. Rikki's took all the responsibility to make sure this kitty is safe and would find a loving home. I happen to see the post on Facebook and Rikki's made all things possible with the help of the volunteers involved. The kitty is safe now. Very well taken care of and since day one, she touched our hearts and our home is her new forever home. I will be forever grateful to Rikki's for the unconditional love they are giving these pets and animals everyday of their lives.

I don't know what Orange County would do for their furry friends if it was not for our wonderful friends at Rikki's Refuge, I have trapped many felines and most of them went to Rikki's Refuge, thank God for this wonderful place for all types of animals but they do need help to feed and take care or them so please donate what you can.

Rikki's Refuge took in my 3 cows from Massachusetts when no other sanctuary had room. My 3 "girls" lived their for several years until each one passed on to Rainbow Bridge. Rikki's took care of them when our land became unsuitable for them to have a quality life. I will forever be grateful to Kerry and Rikki's Refuge. We fenced 10 acres for them to roam and enjoy their time. LuluBelle, Sweet Pea, and India will be in my heart forever. I love you girls. Thank you Rikki"s.

Rikki's is one of the few rescues that takes in all animals. I was looking for a home for a minature horse that was owned by a kill buyer. Rikki's has close to two thousand animals that Kerry and her people care for. I had wanted to keep this little one with my horse, but there is too much acreage for a mini to be on. I had contacted Kerry to see if she knew of anyone that could take her. First thing she says is "send her on down". Not, how much will this cost, what health is she in, how is she with people...just send her on down. That is the way so many thousands of animals have lived at least the last part of their lives, with caring & complete love. They take animals that other adoptions & many rescues wouldn't touch. Rikki's deserves every metal, every honor that can be given to a rescue.

What a wonderful place for all species! Rikkis has helped me to help and save countless animals who had slim chances before being rescued and who were not so cute and cuddly! They have thrived at Rikkis! Bravo, Kerry!

I am so happy Rikki Refuge is here b/c years ago a male cat crossed my path. I normally worked with the local Fredericksburg SPCA on strays/ ferals on finding them a home. However this poor guy aka Manny had Feline Lukemia. So with the work of a great lady at the SPCA she got Manny into Rikki's to live his cat life. If it asnt for Rikki's I dont know what kinda life Manny would have had. Thanks Rikki's !!!!!

I have been friends with Rikkis Refuge for 10 years. We have adopted quite a few cats from them. We like the cats with special needs and no on else wants. Rikkis Refuge notifies me if they come across a special needs cat and we go to them. We have had blind cats, cats who walk funny from brain damage etc. We love the staff at Rikkis. They also give great advice. It is a very compassion place to visit

Rikki's Refuge is always there to assist our special needs kitties by opening their doors AND HEARTS, giving them all a much needed 2nd chance. Fiv+, felv+, senior cats, three legged kitties all received a warm welcome and continue to receive excellent medical care and TLC. All of these animals were abandoned at high kill animal controls --many of which used the gas chamber to euthanize. Rikki's is a wonderful example of humane existence for the many different species there--without Rikki's help, so many of these cats would have been euthanized at those high kill animal controls instead. Their open houses are wonderful examples to show & educate the community and our following generations the need to respect and care for all creatures on this planet.

help raise more funds to enable them to build more housing or make any necessary improvements---help raise funds to pay off the heating bills incurred in these harsh winters to keep those animals warm and healthy, raise funds to pay down the vet and medical supplies costs. I would move closer when I retire so I can help full time.

Without Rikki's Refuge I wouldn't be alive!!! They took me in, injured, sick, in need of thousand of dollars of repairs. They loved me, they vetted me, they gave me a home. In return I have become their SpokesCat and I now travel to schools and groups teaching humane values. Thank you all who made the dream of a sanctuary for the unwanted, a REALITY !!! I LOVE YOU !!!
