We believe strongly in helping others and part of our mission is supporting charities we feel have made a difference in the lives of people and pets. Since 2008, we have been holding annual and sometimes biannual pet food drives to benefit the pets of Feed More's Meals on Wheels' recipients. Feed More's Meals for Pets program keeps pets in the homes of seniors and the homebound by providing the same nutritious meals for pets as it does for their human recipients. The pet food pantry is always in need. In 2022, with support from this amazing pet-loving community, we collected 2000 pounds of pet food which was donated to Feed More.
We also supported the Richmond SPCA and raised over $2800 in 2021 with our Over The Edge campaign and fund-raising event at Common House. Did you know it costs about $370 on average (2021) to care for each pet who enters Richmond SPCA's shelter before they are adopted? The SPCA also offers low cost spay and neuter, as well as reduced cost veterinary services. By doing so, they are helping people and pets in our community.
Our cats, Pete and Ernie, got their start at Richmond Animal Care and Control. The RACC Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting the agency's success. Our kittens received nutritious meals in their foster home, were tested for infectious diseases, got all their shots, and were even neutered for a low adoption fee. We help RACC now by "virtually fostering" a pet, a new initiative to help get shelter pets adopted. We post the fosters on our social media pages helping spread the word, and encouraging others to do so, until that pet finds their forever home. Check out our newest virtual foster in the gallery below.
Serving Through Our Business
We like to serve our community through our real estate services, too. We understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience and that’s what it is meant to be. We believe, both professionally and personally, that there is nothing better than owning a home. Making your home your own, with your favorite things and then making memories to last a lifetime, with family, pets, and friends, is what it’s all about.
Each month we invite RVA's dog-loving community to join us for a pack walk at one of our Richmond area public parks. The walks have not only been great for our dog, Bunny, but for the people in attendance, too. It's a great way to connect and make new friends and the dogs are learning much needed socialization skills. Want to join us for a stroll? Visit the link below to check out our next walk.
Help make a difference in RVA. We’ve created a VIP program for our pack members to make a difference each time they walk with us. When you come to a walk, you'll receive a VIP card with 8 paw prints on it. Each time you join us, you’ll get a stamp. Eight stamps equals a donation to your favorite Richmond-area pet-related non-profit. We’re so excited for you and your pup to partner with us in this new and fun way to help our community.
Sign up for a pack walk and make a difference.
