General Info

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. We provide humane care for more than 3,000 stray, injured, abused and relinquished pets a year. As an open admission shelter we take in every animal in need in the City of Richmond- including animals that are severely injured or too aggressive to be placed for adoption. We believe that every life is worth trying to save and we are committed to putting work behind those words. The RACC Facebook page is a place of sharing information for the community we serve.
