Earlier this month, the Richmond SPCA School for Dogs was launched. It's an innovative training option that allows families to drop their dogs off at our training annex, where they spend two days each week with our trainers working on an individualized instruction plan.
Two of our first students are also Richmond SPCA alumni, adopted from our Robins-Starr Humane Center. Gus was adopted by Pat Manning in 2008, the year he also starred in our Meet Your Match ad campaign. Esmerelda found her second chance earlier this year when she was rescued from a dog fighting ring before joining the family of Bart and Dawn Hinkle. The scruffy terrier and the timid pit bull have taken quite a liking to one another. See for yourselves!
