We are so grateful to all our two and four-legged runners and walkers, sponsors, donors and attendees each year for helping us fundraise and save lives.

Last year alone, our amazing Dog Jog and 5K Run supporters raised more than $160,000 to guarantee that thousands of homeless animals in the care of the Richmond SPCA have a second chance for a happy life in a lasting, loving home. In addition, funds raised support the lifesaving programs and services provided by our staff and volunteers to the people and pets in our community. Learn more about how you can help raise crucial, lifesaving funds to benefit pets in the care of the Richmond SPCA!
