Richmond Animal Protection Society (RAPS) / City of Richmond Animal Shelter
Who We Are
On January 8, 2007, Richmond's mayor and council voted unanimously to make the Richmond Animal Protection Society their new partner in caring for the homeless animals of our city.
RAPS is a registered charity that rescues and cares for homeless and abandoned animals.
We are a no-kill shelter. We take in surrendered animals from Richmond provided they are healthy. If your pet is ill, please bring him to a veterinarian for medical treatment as we are unable to provide free veterinary services.
We also operate an additional shelter with over 800 cats on No. 6 Rd. This shelter is currently full, and we cannot take animals from the general public. For more information about this other shelter, click here.
