Did you know...

...that more than 90 cents of every dollar raised is available for programs and services that directly benefit our cats and dogs? It's true. RAL was formed by a group of volunteers more than 30 years ago. We have blossomed into an organization that is rescuing close to 900 animals a year. We operate a low-cost, high-volume spay/neuter clinic, organize monthly adopt-a-thons for the local coalition known as Metro Richmond Pet Savers, work closely with county shelters to spay and neuter adopted animals, and our volunteers will make up the core of Chesterfield County's Community Animal Response Team as it is formed and implemented in 2011. But we won't forget our humble beginnings. We could not do what we do without the support of our community. The best way to honor the hard work and commitment of our volunteers and donors is to be good stewards of every donation that comes our way. If you ever want to see your dollars at work, contact Amy at for a tour of our facility.

Here are some other stats you might enjoy.

  1. I am very impressed with the RAL organization. You can't beat the prices at your spay/neuter clinic! The one complaint that I have with them is that the HW test isn't the four way. However, I've gotten so I do that test at my vet's office before I spay or neuter due to the possibility of bleeding from surgery should they have erlichia.
