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

Rating: 5 stars  

What can you say about an organization that takes in animals with disabilities, animals who have been so badly abused that they no longer care to trust people, animals with chronic medical conditions that require care and medication which their original owners don't want to provide, animals who are "too old and won't play anymore; we want a kitten/puppy," animals who have lost their homes because of illness, death, divorce or financial woes? What can you say about an organization that gives all of these creatures a for-ever home, with food, shelter, medical care and huge whopping doses of love every day? What can you say about an organization that is no-kill, that promotes cruelty-free eating for us humans that advocates tirelessly for spaying and neutering of your pets and ferals? What can you say about an organization that exists on private donations, money from bake sales, yard sales, a thrift shop and various events and doesn't take one penny of government money? What can you say about the people who work everyday in all kinds of weather and conditions to care for 1,300 animals of 22 different species? You say: This is Rikki's Refuge and I'm proud to be associated with them!

My first visit to Rikki's Refuge was on Christmas Day, 2010, for the tour. I was amazed at the number of animals who call Rikki's home and astounded by the compassion, caring, love and expert care each member of each species receives. Differently-abled animals are helped to live out their lives as fully as they can instead of being euthanized. Abused, unwanted and abandoned animals are gently nursed back to health and every effort is made to help them regain their trust in humans. I came as an interested animal-lover and began participating in events with my massage chair and cake-baking skills. Now I'm a proud board member and help spread the word about Rikki's. Kerry runs this sanctuary on donations, winnings from contests, volunteers and love. This is a great organization not only for the animals that land there, but for the people who come to help. I wonder who saved who.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?


How much of an impact do you think this organization has?


Will you tell others about this organization?

Rikki's Refuge is a no-kill animal sanctuary that does outstanding work for so many animals. They all have names, up-to-date on shots, etc., all neutered. When you drive up, be prepared for one or two gorgeous white guard dogs, some goats and cats to meet your car. It's plainly obvious how loved, cared for and safe these animals feel. When I win a lottery jackpot, I have plans to make the lives of the wonderful people who run this facility much easier. And you have to meet the best spokescat on the planet - Vincent! Bring Fancy Feast!!!

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

Being greeted by happy, well--cared-for and well-loved animals lifts my spirits.

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

Fix the road coming in! When I win the lottery, they'll receive enough money on an on-going basis to never worry about funding again.
