Looking for a new best bud? Join us for the RACC adoption event at Little House! You can meet adoptable animals and get treat samples from Mugsy's Dogtown Lounge. Richmond Animal Care & Control (RACC) was established as the first city pound June 5, 1902, and since then it has served as the only open admission public shelter in the City of Richmond. They provide humane care for more than 3,000 stray, injured, abused and relinquished pets a year that require immediate care. As an open admission shelter, RACC takes in every animal in need in the City of Richmond, including animals that are severely injured or behaviorally unsound. The RACC believes that every life is worth trying to save and is committed to putting work behind those words.
