To relieve suffering among animals, and to promote responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of all animals.

Impact  Accomplishments 2016:
  • 106 cats, kittens and several dogs were taken into our adoption program and were checked out by a veterinarian, tested for feline leukemia and FIV, received age appropriate vaccinations, spayed/neutered and microchipped. 47 of these animals were rescued from local kill shelters when their time had run out.
  • 96 pets found their “purrfect ending” when they were adopted into their forever homes.
  • 20,000 pounds of dog and cat food were distributed to citizens in the community and area food banks.
  • Medical care was provided for the pets of five citizens and the cost of the spay/neuter of 40 pets was covered for local citizens needing assistance.
Goals 2017:

  • Continue with the rescue program with emphasis on helping cats and kittens most in need, either due to time running out at area kill shelters or having special needs as a result of illness, injury or age. We hope to accomplish this by sustaining the number of cats and kittens (130 animals) with basic care and assisting and additional 10-20 with special/extended care.
  • Continue to support the area food banks and citizens in the community with the current level of support by providing 20,000 pounds of dog and cat food.
  • Continue to provide veterinary care and spay/neuter assistance to people having difficulty caring for their dog or cat.
  • Renew the offering of Kind News to groups providing reading programs in low income areas.



  • Donations. We appreciate financial contributions of any amount to help care for the cats and kittens in our program, fund programs in the community, and provide Kind News subscriptions to local class rooms.  Make a donation in memory or honor of a friend, family member or pet. We also need donations of pet food and litter to our food assistance program.
  • Foster Homes. SFHA does not have a shelter and relies entirely upon foster homes to house our adoptable cats and kittens. Fostering is a highly rewarding and enriching experience and saves the lives of cats and kittens that might otherwise have been euthanized. SFHA provides all medical care and supplies – fosters provide the home, the love, and transportation to and from adoption stands and veterinary appointments.
  • Volunteers. Opportunities including caring for adoptable cats and kittens during their stay at any of our three Petco locations, staffing adoption stands, fundraising and clerical tasks.
  • Adopters. Consider opening your home and heart to a very deserving pet. Adopting saves lives! Owning a pet can decrease blood pressure and feelings of loneliness and offer opportunities for exercise and socialization with others. Pets educate humans of all ages on matters of empathy, sharing and unconditional love.



SFHA was formed in 1994 to serve the Richmond, Virginia metropolitan area.

Our Programs include:

Keeping pets and their people together by providing food and assistance with medical care to people having difficulty feeding or caring for their dog or cat.

Fixing the Problem through Spay/Neuter by working with area residents to get their pets or strays spayed or neutered. Additionally, we assist with the trap/neuter/return of feral cats via education, training, funding and hands-on trapping and transportation. SFHA also accepts friendly cats and kittens from feral colonies into its rescue and adoption program.

Ensuring the next generation of compassionate animal lovers by providing Kind News, a monthly newspaper that teaches students good character, compassion and responsibility for animals, pets and the environment to local schools.

Furever” Homes for Rescued Orphans was created in 2011 and grew out of the harsh economic reality of the past several years. It was created to address the need to place the increasing number of adoptable kittens born and adults abandoned in feral colonies, left in foreclosed homes or on the side of the road. It also resulted from the tearful, pleading calls of people being evicted from their apartments, homes or living on the streets and begging for a safe haven for their beloved, innocent furry friends.

SHFA’s “Furever” Homes for Rescued Orphans program includes the rescue, foster, rehabilitation and adoption of companion animals in the Richmond Metropolitan area. It became a reality with the establishment of our Petco Partnership in August 2011. Through our successful Petco Partnership, we have taken in approximately 370 homeless animals and placed over 300 into carefully-screened, loving homes.
