Richmond Animal Welfare Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit created to provide resources to Richmond Animal Care & Control that result in increased adoptions and improve the quality of life of pets in its care and in the Greater Richmond community.We value all lives, human and animal, without prejudice, and recognize the importance of respect, tolerance, kindness and generosity.
The Richmond Animal Welfare Foundation was established by Walter Dotts in response to a study of the Richmond Animal Shelter (now Richmond Animal Care & Control) and the impact of the Richmond SPCA becoming a limited admission / no-kill facility. Limited admission means that injured animals would not be accepted, indicating that there would be a dramatic increase in the number of animals that would be handled by the Richmond Animal Shelter. The Richmond Animal Welfare Foundation would provide a means for the community to make charitable donations to help provide a comfortable environment for this increase in animals with emergency and/or ongoing health and behavioral needs. RAWF exists to support RACC's commitment to treating any animal that can recover humanely and find a forever adoptive family.The foundation will continue to provide support to RACC that city funding is unable to cover to enhance the shelter's environment, provide comfort to all the animals in Richmond who need it, and enhance the adoptability of homeless animals by all means possible to make Richmond a community where no adoptable or treatable animal is euthanized.
