Pets transferred to the Richmond SPCA in July 2021

Posted on Thursday, August 12, 2021

Beginning this January, we’ve made monthly updates to a Google Map showing all of our partner shelters. There’s a lot of data here, whether you’d like to appreciate the big picture or dig into the details. Each month is represented by a heart icon of a different color. July is red.

Click to see the name of our partner shelter and how many pets we brought into our care from that shelter or rescue in a given month.

The tab in the upper left corner will open or collapse the map legend and allow you to navigate through the months. View the whole year or one month at a time. Zoom in on Virginia or get a larger view of our work throughout the region.

1,296 lives saved — and counting!

From January 1 to July 31, 2021, we have brought 1,296 homeless pets into our care through shelter transfers.

Forming new partnerships

The relationships we have with other sheltering organizations are lifesaving. The Richmond SPCA primarily works with municipal shelters that are operated by city and county governments with limited resources. After being transferred to our Robins-Starr Humane Center, cats, dogs, kittens and puppies have thorough examinations so that our shelter pet veterinary team can address their medical needs before they find loving homes in our community.

Our admissions team is always building new relationships with organizations in areas that need our assistance. Our newest partner agency in July was Save a Pet in Dothan, Alabama. We welcomed 14 dogs and 22 cats who were transported by the nonprofit group. Many of these pets have already found homes with families in Richmond!
