The Richmond SPCA, founded in 1891, is a no-kill humane organization dedicated to the guiding principle that every life is precious. As a national leader in humane care and education, the Richmond SPCA is building a more compassionate community through programs of adoption, rehabilitation, spay/neuter, pet-retention, trap-neuter-return and humane education. In our most recent fiscal year, we delivered care to 4,119 homeless animals in our care, provided 3,505 homeless pets in our care with veterinary treatment for a variety of medical conditions prior to adopting them to loving, lasting homes, saw more than 11,300 four-legged patients in our full-service, low-cost veterinary hospital and delivered more than 36,000 hours of humane education and training to area school children, adults and canines.
