The Richmond SPCA Accepts a Challenge
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has issued a Save More Lives Challenge, and the Richmond SPCA is one of 50 competitors.
The top prize is $100,000 dollars…
Starr: …to either the organization or partnership that makes the largest numerical increase in the number of companion animal lives saved in their community.
Robin Starr heads the Richmond SPCA. She explained that they entered in partnership with Richmond Animal Care and Control. Last year, together they saved 1,146 animals. Tomorrow the U.S. Postal Service will release a new stamp series at the Robins-Starr Humane Center.
Starr: It’s a project called “Stamps to the Rescue.” This year their social awareness program is to encourage people to adopt a shelter pet. And so they’ve come out with a group of stamps that featured pictures of dogs and cats that were actually adopted from a Connecticut animal shelter.
The Stamps to the Rescue series will be unveiled at noon and there’ll be refreshments and the Center will be open for tours and adoptions.
