“We are fortunate to have an organization like the Richmond SPCA that is setting the standard for other communities across the Commonwealth.”
Governor Timothy M. Kaine

The Richmond SPCA was founded in 1891. In 1999 the organization adopted a bold vision for the future, pledging to save the life of every healthy, homeless animal in the City of Richmond by 2008 through an emphasis on education, adoption, pet-retention, Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and spay/neuter programs. This goal was accomplished two years early, and no healthy, homeless animal has lost his life in the City of Richmond since January 1, 2006. This success was also achieved in Hanover County, where no healthy, homeless animal has lost his life since January 1, 2009.

Animal Statistics

From 2006 through 2010 the Richmond community reported animal statistics and live release rates in accordance with the Asilomar Accords, made possible by a grant from Maddie's Fund. To learn more about the Asilomar Accords and define the terms used in the table — healthy, treatable-rehabilitatable, treatable-manageable and unhealthy/untreatable — visit the Maddie's Fund Web site.

Thank you for your constant support of our city’s homeless animals. For every animal adopted from our shelter, another orphaned pet’s life is saved.
