I am delighted and proud to let you know about a wonderful national recognition that the Richmond SPCA has received from One Green Planet, a well trafficked website that provides an online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals and the planet. It recently published its list of “10 Amazing No-Kill Animal Shelters in the U.S.” They list the Richmond SPCA as number five!
We are deeply grateful for this recognition of the remarkable life saving work we do for animals in need and we are proud to be acknowledged for that work in the company of the nine other great and well known organizations on that list. It is an acknowledgement of what we have known was true – that the Richmond SPCA is a national no-kill leader. We are amazing for the number of animal lives we save and for having had the foresight and courage to be in the vanguard of the no-kill movement in this country. We are also amazing for the efficacy of our use of the donations of our supporters, saving the most animal lives possible per dollar given to us. And, we are amazing by consistently speaking out in ways that are courageous and motivational to others to protect animals who are otherwise voiceless.
I want to express our enormous thanks to each of you who has helped and supported our work for the animals we all love. The Richmond SPCA is one of the ten most amazing no-kill organizations in this country because of every one of you who has helped us to do the crucial work that we do to save animals from death and suffering and to speak the truth courageously and persuasively for them. We have much more to do in order to make our community and world the safest place for animals possible but, with your continued support and belief in us, the Richmond SPCA will do even more amazing life saving work for animals.
