The Richmond SPCA’s 2011-2012 Mascot, Lottie Dula, is on the move to pet-friendly places around Richmond. We’ve outfitted her with a GoPro video camera so you can see her perspective on the world.
During the summer months, the Richmond SPCA is filled with children who spend a week with us learning about animals. Each week brings a new focus and new kids, filled with compassion for animals and delight in learning more about our companions. Earlier in July, we hosted Dogs with Jobs. Campers were able to meet all kinds of "working" and performance dogs. Guests included a bomb-sniffing dog, an arson dedection dog, therapy dogs, service dogs, agility dogs, trick dogs, obedience dogs, and of course Lottie, the current and hard-working mascot of the Richmond SPCA.
Martha Dula, Lottie's mom, took the opportunity to talk about Lottie's early and probably not-so-happy days in a puppy mill and the collaborative efforts of the Humane Society of the United States and the Richmond SPCA to help find her (and many like her) happily-ever-after homes and in Lottie's case, a second "career." It was a wonderful visit for everyone. Thank you Lottie!!
