Animals speak a language all their own, and we can help you translate!
Free Pet Behavior HelpWe’ve got all the information you need to make life with your pets happy and fulfilling. We offer training classes, behavior consults ($35 fee), a behavior handout library (see below), and more! To get started, please send your behavior related questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call 804-643-SPCA (7722). Please note: your question may be used anonymously to educate other pet owners. If you would prefer that we not use your case as an educational tool, please indicate that in your message to us. Our behavior support and training is a component of the Richmond SPCA's lifesaving Project Safety Net program.
