Richmond SPCA expanding

Expanding to meet the growing needs of Richmond’s furry friends.

From the Press Release:

The Richmond SPCA is beginning construction to expand its veterinary and training offerings for the public and will share the plans for the new facility at a news conference on May 13. The capital campaign to fund the project has raised more than 90 percent of its goal, enabling the local non-profit to begin building out the 18,000-square-foot space adjacent to its Robins-Starr Humane Center at 2519 Hermitage Road.

  • A pilot program to offer full-service veterinary care at a low cost, called the Clinic for Compassionate Care, began at the Richmond SPCA in March of 2012. Demand for these services has been well established through the pilot program.
  • The Clinic for Compassionate Care is currently unable to accept additional clients, having exceeded the capacity of the small examination and surgery space within the Robins-Starr Humane Center. The expansion to the new facility will expand resources.
  • Training classes and behavior consultations are currently offered to more than 1,650 students annually at the Robins-Starr Humane Center as well as four off-site locations. This project adds capacity to meet the community’s demand for reward-based training methods consistent with the mission of the Richmond SPCA.

The Richmond SPCA is looking to help from the community on the remaining 10%. To help raise just under $1 million to fully reach the goal, please 804-521-1308 or donate online.
