2 Statements & Search Criteria Mission Saving lives: providing hope, help and homes to animals in need. Richmond Animal League (RAL) provides homeless animals with temporary housing, medical treatment, sterilization, and quality care until they are adopted into permanent, loving homes. RAL also provides low-cost spay and neuter services to pet owners without geographical restrictions. Background Since its founding in 1979, the Richmond Animal League has provided loving care and shelter to thousands of homeless animals until permanent, loving homes can be found. With your support, and responsible, strategic planning, we continue to grow and expand our services to help reduce the number of animals that are euthanized in area animal shelters. Impact In late 2011 we expedited our adoption procedures so that we could maximize the number of homeless cats and dogs we could bring into our facility. With simple changes we were able to increase our adoptions by almost 60%. In each of the past two years (2013 & 2014), we have rescued and found homes for more than 1,700 cats and dogs. The board of directors and staff of Richmond Animal League are constantly and continuously evaluating how to expand our services to further our vision of assisting animal shelters in Central Virginia reach no-kill status. As we enter our fourth decade of service to homeless cats and dogs, we have opened a low-cost spay and neuter clinic to help end the problem of pet overpopulation. Our Loving Spay + Neuter Clinic is the first and only such facility located south of the James River. The clinic is available to pet owners, rescue organizations, and municipal shelters, without geographical restrictions. In 2014, more than 6,900 animals were spayed/neutered at the clinic. As a founding member of Metro Richmond Pet Savers (MRPS), the Richmond Animal League is leading the way in "out of the box" events to promote animal adoptions. A coalition of rescue groups, shelters, and educational groups, MRPS focuses on reducing euthanasia rates in municipal shelters by holding massive adopt-a-thons each month. In only the first three events, more than 170 animals have been saved--and have found permanent, loving homes. As another service to the animals and pet owners in our community, Richmond Animal League volunteers are taking first steps to form a disaster relief plan for domestic animals. During times of disaster, the primary reason that people do not evacuate is because they do not want to leave their pets behind. A Community Animal Response Team (CART) would be prepared to temporarily shelter animals during times of disaster, improving evacuation rates and the safety of the people in our area. Needs Richmond Animal League has an annual operating budget of close to one million dollars. We rely on private donations, grants and bequests to sustain our life-saving mission. General operating funds and restricted funds that support our adoptions and spay/neuter programs are always needed. RAL has more than 300 active volunteers. These dedicated individuals allow us to keep salaries down, and animal care a top priority. We could not do what we do without them. We are always seeking new volunteers. Richmond Animal League is always in need of foster homes for dogs, cats, kittens and puppies. Fostering saves lives. Aside from creating space for more animals in the shelter, foster homes give pets a break from what can be a very stressful kennel environment. 2

3 CEO/Executive Director Statement While we are committed to greatly reducing the number of homeless animals euthanized every day in our area's shelters, we recognize that no single animal rescue organization or shelter can tackle the problem of pet overpopulation alone. We've reached out to our community, to other rescue groups, to corporations, to local pet lovers, to municipal shelters, and have asked that we work together on a mission--finding homes for as many animals as possible. It has been an amazing collaboration, and a natural extension of RAL's philosophy and business model. We rely on our community, and a few grants from national partners, to continue the vital work that we do. Thanks for finding us on GiveRichmond.org. Areas Of Service Areas Served Areas Metro Richmond Tri-cities Region Richmond, City Chester Chesterfield County Colonial Heights, City Dinwiddie County Hanover County Henrico County Hopewell, City Petersburg, City Powhatan County Prince George County Our Loving Spay & Neuter Clinic is open to all without geographical restrictions.

Service Categories Animal Protection & Welfare Alliances & Advocacy 3

4 Programs Programs Adoptions Description The Richmond Animal League (RAL) adopts 1,700 previously homeless animals into loving, forever homes each year. Richmond Animal League transfers animals from municipal shelters in Central Virginia and beyond, where they may have faced euthanasia due to over-crowding, lack of resources, or behavioral or medical problems. As spaces become available due to adoptions, they are filled with animals from municipal shelters. Some are healthy and just need a good bath and a proper diet. Many need much more. RAL transfers animals that have mange, fleas and ticks, heartworms, kennel cough, upper respiratory infections, etc. We will also rescue animals that have broken bones and other injuries. RAL provides the care needed to get the pets healthy and happy, and make them available for adoption. Budget $0.00 Long term Success Short Term Success Our main goal is to reduce euthanasia rates in Central Virginia, ensuring that no dog or cat is killed due to a lack of resources. Through increased adoptions, we can further our vision of assisting animal shelters in Central Virginia reach no-kill status, RAL adopts out 1,700 animals each year. As soon as adoptions take place at RAL, leaving empty kennels, we are out filling up. Because there are so many animals in need, many of whom are facing scary deadlines, we operate at full capacity. 4

5 Spay/Neuter Description In 2009, RAL saw the great need for a low-cost, high-volume spay neuter clinic on the south side of the James in order to assist in reducing the homeless pet population. A year later, they opened an onsite clinic. The Loving Spay & Neuter Clinic provides low-cost services to municipal shelters, rescue groups, and private pet owners, as well as free services for feral cats. Free spay and neuter services are available for pet owners who meet low-income guidelines. There are no geographical restrictions for these services. The clinic also provides some reduced vaccinations and tests, if done at the time of the surgery and can microchip a pet to make identification easier should the pet get lost and end up in a shelter. No animal goes to a new home from RAL without being spayed or neutered. The clinic has worked with Chesterfield County animal control and Prince George County to provide spay/neuter surgeries prior to adoption for those municipalities. RAL also supports local Trap-Neuter- Release (TNR) programs providing free sterilization and rabies vaccination for feral cats. The clinic veterinarians average 30 surgeries a day. In 2014, the staff performed 6,917 spay/neuter surgeries. Budget $0.00 Long term Success Short Term Success Offering reduced fee spay & neuter surgeries ensures that everyone has an affordable option and in turn reduces the number of homeless pets ending up in Central Virginia shelters. This service helps to further our vision of assisting animal shelters in Central Virginia reach no-kill status. The clinic veterinarians average 30 surgeries a day. In 2014, the staff performed 6,917 spay/neuter surgeries. In the first five years, the Loving Spay & Neuter Clinic has performed over 27,000 surgeries. 5
