Faced with budget cuts Richmond Animal Care and Control turn to the public for help

Help a hound out. You’ll also be caring for cats.

Budget cuts by the city are starting to have a direct impact in the services that we expect from our city. Richmond Animal Care and Control is cutting straight to the chase. They’re letting people know how much they and asking for donations.

From RACC Facebook:

Each department in the City of Richmond was subject to a budget reduction this year in an effort to help fund city schools. For a small department like RACC, this reduction is detrimental to the service we provide and the animals we love. RACC lost $43,020 in these cuts, the bulk of the funding being pulled from vet care. We are reaching out to our FB family to help us recover those funds in private donations. If each of our FB friends gives just $4.30 we will be set for the year! Please share this post-send an email to your contacts and spread the word far and wide. RACC is the only government shelter in Richmond that provides medical care to abused, abandoned and stray animals. Funds raised through our Richmond Animal Welfare Foundation supports the cost of medical care for animals like Cooper (pictured). Our goal is to raise $43,020 in 1 week-think we can do it? I DO!
