On Friday, May 4, Richmond SPCA Chief Executive Officer Robin Robertson Starr was recognized by the YWCA with a 2012 Outstanding Woman Award. Each recipient addressed the crowd at the luncheon to celebrate the accomplishments of the nine honorees. Robin has been honored in the communications category for her work to revolutionize the approaches to and attitudes about animal welfare issues in our own community and nationally as a leader of the no-kill movement.
We wanted to share her remarks with our readers and take another opportunity to thank the YWCA for courageously acknowledging that the cause of animal welfare matters.
