Since 1979, Richmond Animal League has been finding homes for homeless dogs and cats in the Richmond area. Their mission is: Providing hope, help and homes for animals in need.
RAL provides temporary housing, medical treatment, sterilization, and quality care to over 2,000 companion animals each year until they are adopted into permanent and loving homes.
A grant from Grey Muzzle supports their Senior Fund, a medical fund specifically supporting a General Health Profile screening for every senior dog and dental cleaning for most senior dogs rescued by RAL in 2016-17. Funds are used explicitly to prepare senior pets for adoption, removing apprehension from potential adopters, and increasing the chances of senior dog adoption.
