Rikki's helped me by accepting a FELV positive kitty when I could find no where else to take her. I made the trip all the way from Indiana to Virginia, and I was amazed at the numbers and kinds of rescued animals and the tender care and love they recieved from the whole staff. Kerry Hilliard knows the name and story of each and every animal! She is amazing, and the refuge she leads is awesome! Kerry has also given me wonderful advice with regard to my personal cats when I have sought her ideas. This is a truly wonderful organization. In addition to caring for all their 1300 or so rescued animals, they give programs in the community to educate children and adults about the importance of spaying and neutering pets, proper animal care, and they creatively use disabled animals as a bridge to show all living beings deserve love and respect, no matter what their health status or age or color! Truly, if I could give 10 stars, I would!

Life Unlimited is a wonderful organization. I have visited their main branch, Rikki's Refuge, and it is an amazing place. This organization survives solely on donations, and 96% of all donated funds are used directly in the rescue and care of their almost 1300 animal residents. They also do great community outreach and teaching of the public on the care, welfare and treatment of animals and through the use of differently abled animals demonstrated to children that any and all differently abled beings can live rich, full lives and should be treated with dignity and respect. Life Unlimited of Virginia is very worthy of any and all support you can give them!

this is a wonderful refuge that provides care to over 1200 animals. They spend 96% of the funds they take in on caring for the animals...they REALLY care! They deserve everyone's support and contributions.

I have supported Rikki's Refuge for several years. They care about all life, opening their doors and their hearts to the creatures who have no hope, welcoming them, tending to all their needs. These animals may go on to find a home with someone else, but if they don't, they are cherished at Rikki's for the rest of their lives. And Rikki's also has a wonderful program of humane education so that children (and their families!) learn how important it is to treat others kindly, both animal and human. Rikki's is making the world a better place.

They have taken in cats from the rescue group I support, cats who most would consider unadoptable.

Rikki's Refuge is an amazing place with volunteers that have hearts of gold. They rescue so many unwanted, injured, senior, and handicapped animals and give them the life they would've never had before, and I can't thank them enough for it! If I lived closer, I'd volunteer there as well!

I support Rikki's because of all the lives they save! They take what are often the unwanted and give them a fulfilling life. Just because the animals aren't perfect doesn't mean they don't deserve a chance.

I learned about Rikkis through my childrens dance studio. My children and family have been so taken by the good work this charity does. So many animals with so many needs all im a safe place with wonderful people that care. Animals are a gift from God, these vulnerable creatures give so much love and happiness to so many people. My kids are states away but love to hear the stories of the animals at Rikkis and see all the pictures of the animals. I believe that Rikkis may be one f the most unique charities I have ever encountered, any donation to the is pricledd in the amount it can hep the animals..

I have donated to Rikki's on countless occasions. The wonderful people there have always been so kind and let me know the best place to put my donation as sometimes the needs in other areas are greater than others.

I have donated cash, cat food, dog food, and a dog house. I thought I was
doing so well, until I realized just how much they go through of each of those. However, no matter how small the donation (even $1) they are VERY thankful for. It is obvious that those who volunteer or work there care so much about the animals.

They provide a service that not many would do. How fantastic for all those animals. All 1300 of them :)

Rikki's Refuge volunteers and donors, helping homeless and handicapped animals, are what the word "compassion" is all about. more

I am so impressed by the extraordinary care Rikki's Refuge gives to each and every animal in their care. They tirelessly help the hurt or sick animals, no matter what species. They have given physical therapy to a chicken, saved a baby pig with homeopathy, take in cats with feline leukemia when any other shelter would euthanize them, and keep all animals for life if they don't get adopted out. Reading emails from Vincent and Opie makes me smile when I read the things that go on at Rikki's. They took in a cat I had found which had feline leukemia and nursed him to health and he actually got adopted out to a volunteer who had other cats with feline leukemia. I will always be in debt to Rikki's and will always support them. Rikki's Refuge is what love and compassion is all about. Thank you so much to all at Rikki's Refuge and also to all who donate to Rikki's.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They took in a cat I trapped which had feline leukemia virus which is very contagious to other cats and shouldn't be in the same house as other cats. The cat I took them, named Sonny Corinthos, was eventually adopted out. They give me advice on my own cats when I have questions and even know better methods in handling feral cats than veterinarians know.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to give them more money to continue the excellent work they are doing.

Rikki's Refuge is unlike any other place I've ever heard of. they go far beyond just saving cats and dogs. Twenty two species of animals call Rikki's home. The volunteers are amazing...they never say "we can't". They somehow make great things happen and overcome problems where other rescues would say no, we can't help. Differently abled animals that would be killed anywhere else live and thrive there. Throw away animals with no place to call home now have wonderful lives because of Rikki's. I have been a supporter for quite some time and my first vacation in 15 years will be this year and I'm going to Rikki's!!

Rikki's Refuge is an amazing place with fantastic people, they save countless lives and never turn an animal in need away. I came across them via the internet and am planning a visit this year, I live in the UK. In a round about way they have helped animals here also as I now volunteer in this country. Long may they be able to continue there work.

Through reading about the animals and everyone at Rikki's I have learnt so much about what we can do help each other. Through looking at the problems that can happen to our lovely animals I have learnt that by pulling together we can help our animal friends and each other. I take a keener interest in my local animal centre volunteer and raise funds. I would not be doing this if I had not come across a cat called Vincent and through him met some truly amazing people.
