A wide variety of items and products are needed to accomplish the lifesaving work done at the Richmond SPCA. From pet food, to treats and toys, to veterinary care supplies, all of the items listed on this page play a crucial role in the health and happiness of the pets in our care. Read on to learn how you can help care for pets by donating items on our wish list.
During the spring, summer and fall months, we see a dramatic increase in the number of kittens in our care. You can ensure that our shelter is fully stocked and ready to supply foster care providers with kitten equipment by shopping our Foster Care Wishlist here.
Items in the Animal Care category help us meet the basic physical needs of the pets in our care.
Here at the Richmond SPCA, our animal behavior & training team ensures that each of the animals in our shelter are happy and mentally healthy. The products in this category help our pets have fun! From tasty treats to interesting puzzle toys, our pets love to see donations from this category.
Veterinary supplies* are crucial to caring for all of the pets in our shelter, hospital and at Smoky’s Spay & Neuter Clinic. Items on this list help us to provide medical attention to those who need it most and support our TNVR program at Smoky’s.
**Neither human nor animal medications can be accepted as donations unless shipped directly from the retailer.
Our Foster Care program allows our pets to spend time outside of our shelter while they remain in our care. Our wonderful foster care volunteers help ensure the safety and comfort of our pets while they are recovering from medical procedures, or just waiting to meet their perfect match.
Maintenance of our facilities and office supplies keep everything running smoothly behind the scenes.
Help take care of the folks who care for our pets!

The Richmond SPCA actively supports the Richmond chapter of Street Dog Coalition, which is an organization that provides free veterinary care to the pets of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Along with free veterinary care, Street Dog Coalition offers a pet pantry that is stocked with pet supplies including pet food, collars, leashes, toys and bedding.
The goal of this wish list is to collect personal supplies for the people attending these clinics. We are hoping to collect items such as over-the-counter medications, hygiene products, clothing and non-perishable foods. Along with advocating for Street Dog Coalition, we are donating space at our shelter to act as a hub for the donated items.
