Applewood – Partners for the animals

RAPS is able to deliver the quality and diversity of services to the animals in our care because of the enormous community support we have developed.

Hundreds of volunteers mean we can provide personalized care to hundreds of animals on very modest budgets. The goodwill created in part by RAPS’ proud mission as a no-kill animal shelter draws financial and volunteer support from Richmond and far beyond.

We are now building superb relationships with corporate partners who recognize that animals help build strong communities.

The model of our partnership with amazing corporate citizens is the kindness of the Applewood Auto Group, including Applewood Nissan in the Richmond Auto Mall. Applewood provided two brand-new top-of-the-line vehicles to RAPS for use in animal care and control. This extremely generous gift is helping RAPS safely and comfortably transport the animals in our care when they require veterinary care off-site, to bring injured animals to our shelter and to transfer animals between our facilities, as well as to transport the tons of food and supplies we utilize every year.

RAPS thanks Applewood for being true partners in caring for the animals of Richmond and we look forward to developing more relationships with companies and organizations that share our vision of a safe, secure life for animals.
