The Richmond Animal League (RAL) adopts 1,700 previously homeless animals into loving, forever homes each year. Richmond Animal League transfers animals from municipal shelters in Central Virginia and beyond, where they may have faced euthanasia due to over-crowding, lack of resources, or behavioral or medical problems. As spaces become available due to adoptions, they are filled with animals from municipal shelters. Some are healthy and just need a good bath and a proper diet. Many need much more. RAL transfers animals that have mange, fleas and ticks, heartworms, kennel cough, upper respiratory infections, etc. We will also rescue animals that have broken bones and other injuries. RAL provides the care needed to get the pets healthy and happy, and make them available for adoption.
In 2009, RAL saw the great need for a low-cost, high-volume spay neuter clinic on the south side of the James in order to assist in reducing the homeless pet population. A year later, they opened an onsite clinic. The Loving Spay & Neuter Clinic provides low-cost services to municipal shelters, rescue groups, and private pet owners, as well as free services for feral cats. Free spay and neuter services are available for pet owners who meet low-income guidelines. There are no geographical restrictions for these services. The clinic also provides some reduced vaccinations and tests, if done at the time of the surgery and can microchip a pet to make identification easier should the pet get lost and end up in a shelter.
