In Memory of Joan Nitz Ackermann

Posted on Monday, March 04, 2013

Joan Nitz Ackermann
(March 5, 1964 – February 1, 2013)

When she passed away in February 2013, friends of beloved animal lover Joan Nitz Ackermann made it their mission to raise $50,000 for the Richmond SPCA before what would have been her 50th birthday on March 5, 2014.

Joan’s friends went above and beyond their goal, raising more than $53,500 in support of animals in need in memory of Joan. In her memory, Joan’s friends have helped to save and improve the lives of countless animals and we are forever grateful for their lifesaving support.
