How To Help

We are dependent upon the generosity of people like you! RAL receives no funding from government or national humane organizations. We rely solely on donations, adoption fees, and fund raising activities to provide our operating funds.

There are many ways to help:

Wish List

A list of items RAL currently needs. RAL is currently in need of the following items. All donations are greatly appreciated, and tax deductible. more info


Please consider a donation to Richmond Animal League. As a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, (contributions to which are deductible for Federal income tax purposes) we are dependent upon the generosity of people like you! All contributions go directly to providing care for our rescued animals. more info


We can always use you help! There are opportunities to clean cat and dog cages, walk dogs, socialize both cats and dogs and take our animals to Petsmart and other off-site adoption events. more info


Our volunteer foster parents extend our reach by providing temporary homes for young animals and animals in need when our facility is full. Fostering is a tremendously rewarding experience and most of our foster parents foster animals over and over again. more info

Kids Can Help
