The Richmond SPCA, founded in 1891, is a no-kill humane organization dedicated to the principle that every life is precious. The organization saves the lives of more than 3,700 homeless animals each year and cares for approximately 350 cats and dogs daily. The Richmond SPCA is not affiliated with any other private animal welfare organization or SPCA but has transfer relationships with several area city and county shelters, whereby it transfers animals from the municipal shelter to its own Robins-Starr Humane Center to be placed up for adoption. The Richmond SPCA operates the full-service Susan M. Markel Veterinary Hospital, a free behavior helpline and offers pet behavior classes, children’s educational services and numerous volunteer programs.
