125th Anniversary Celebration

Since our founding in 1891 by a group of influential Richmonders, including Joseph Bryan, we have, with your immense help and support, dramatically improved the prospects for life of countless homeless dogs and cats. We have also advanced progressive animal welfare philosophies that are leading the way to developing a community and a nation that saves the lives of all of its healthy and treatably sick and injured homeless pets. We have accomplished great things for animals over the years, including the passage of important local and statewide legislation, the opening of our state-of-the-art Robins-Starr Humane Center as well as our new Susan M. Markel Veterinary Hospital and Smoky’s Training Center, the provision of high-volume, low-cost and free spaying and neutering, the adoption of tens of thousands of pets to loving homes, and the development of myriad programs and services designed to keep pets in loving homes and out of shelters.

125th Anniversary Club
Celebrating 125 years of service to the animals of our community is a huge milestone in our history and we've created a special giving club to honor the occasion. Make a $125 donation or more  to become a member of the 125th Anniversary Club. We'll be posting contributors' names to this page through May 31, 2016. You can even make the gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, and we'll include your special tribute here. A donation of $125 pays for:

  • Heartworm treatment for an adult dog
  • Bottle feeding for a litter of kittens for two weeks
  • Treatment for a cat with an upper respiratory infection
  • And many other lifesaving services!

To support the Richmond SPCA in our landmark 125th year, please click here or call Susan Nelson at 804-521-1308. We are deeply grateful for your amazing support.
