a virtual lifesaving event!
Together, thanks to our participants, team and individual fundraisers, sponsors and supporters, at our very virtual 2020 Dog Jog and 5K Run we raised more than $153,000! All proceeds will benefit the pets in our care and the lifesaving programs and services we provide to our community. We are moved by your dedication and your support, which will allow homeless pets to find lasting homes with loving adopters.
You can still support the 2020 Dog Jog and 5K Run and your favorite participant or team. Make your gift today!
We look forward to celebrating with you at our upcoming Dog Jog and 5K Run Dominion Energy Vendor Fair. Stay tuned for our release date.
We are moved by your hard work and dedication and want to recognize our top fundraising individuals and teams. We know how hard you have been working to help save the lives of 4,000 cats, dogs, kittens and puppies that are taken into the loving care of the Richmond SPCA each year. Winners will be contacted and notified when they can pick up their prizes at our humane center in the coming weeks.
