Welcome to the Admissions Department of the Richmond SPCA. Please review the following information before requesting an appointment from our Admissions team for relinquishment of your pet. We provide a wide array of free and low-cost tools and resources that serve as alternatives to pet relinquishment in an effort to keep pets in homes and out of shelters. We hope that you will consider one or more of these programs and services as you consider the future of the animal(s) in your care:
