Connect With Us
The Regional Animal Protection Society (RAPS) is a registered charity that operates the City of Richmond Animal Shelter and, independently, one of North America’s largest cat sanctuaries. RAPS is proud to be a no-kill organization, which is among the reasons we have built a strong and devoted community of animal-loving allies.

Our No-Kill Philosophy

RAPS is committed to operating both the Richmond City Shelter and the RAPS Cat Sanctuary as no-kill shelters. Our philosophy is that no animal will be euthanized unless it is absolutely unavoidable, meaning that the animal is severely injured or is suffering in great pain, with little or no hope of recovery despite treatment. We will never euthanize an animal in our care simply because it is old, requires expensive medical care, is poorly trained or badly behaved, is less adoptable than other animals in our care or because of insufficient space in our facilities. We believe that every life is precious and that every animal, not only the young, the healthy, the attractive and the docile, deserves a chance to be safe, healthy and loved.
