Want to get the latest news about what's going on at Rikki's? Subscribe to our email newsletter. Just send an email to Kerry and ask her to include you on the list. The email newsletter goes out at least monthly and has been very successful in getting us great volunteers and letting people know about the great animals we have waiting for their forever homes. You won't want to miss it!
Rikki's Refuge holds adoptions at the refuge by appointment. The best times to come are on the weekends, but we do our best to work around your schedule. Weekday appointments are available, we just have to be sure we know when you are coming so we're not running off to vet appointments or other errands.
We are about 45 minutes away from the Fredericksburg PetsMart, and about the same distance away from the heart of Charlottesville. We have directions posted on our main website (www.rikkisrefuge.org).
Tours of the refuge occur monthly, usually on the first Saturday of each month. Space is limited on our tours and RSVPs are required.
Volunteers are welcome to attend work parties that occur at Rikki's each weekend, rain or shine. Projects are listed on our posted calendar but may be changed on short notice.
People interested in meeting our animals at the refuge are welcome, but you will need to schedule an appointment ahead of time so that we can be sure a caretaker or seasoned volunteer will be available to help you.
Driving directions and a map can be found on the Rikki's Refuge website on the Rikki's website/directions. (If you know the area around Orange, Virginia we are about six minutes away from the airport and Orange Animal Shelter).
