Review for Life Unlimited of Virginia Inc, Annandale, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This entity operates Rikki's Refuge, an animal sanctuary in Orange VA. There are well over 1,000 animals living out their lives there, including farm animals. It specializes in caring for the unadoptables that regular shelters would euthanize. This includes cats with only 2 or 3 useable legs , FIV and FeLuk cats, old or unrideable horses, male dairy calves (who would have gone to the veal crates otherwise) and "miniature" pigs, who were never going to be small and grew too large for their owners. Also there are hundreds of acres left in the natural state, so wildlife have a permanent home.
I have been associated with this place for over 12 years and have seen how hard the director, employees, and volunteers work. It is a very special place.
