Our Pet List


Want to get the latest news about what's going on at Rikki's? Subscribe to our email newsletter. Just send an email to Kerry and ask her to include you on the list. The email newsletter goes out at least monthly and has been very successful in getting us great volunteers and letting people know about the great animals we have waiting for their forever homes. You won't want to miss it!

Who We Are

Rikki's Refuge in Orange County, Virginia, is a no-kill, all species peaceful sanctuary supported solely by donations of kind and loving individuals. It is owned and operated by Life Unlimited of Virginia, Inc. an approved not-for profit Virginia Corporation and IRS tax code 501(c)(3) corporation as determined by the IRS. Federal Tax-ID number 54-1911042. A financial statement is available upon written request from the State Office of Consumer Affairs.

Adopting a friend

Rikki's Refuge holds adoptions at the refuge by appointment. The best times to come are on the weekends, but we do our best to work around your schedule. Weekday appointments are available, we just have to be sure we know when you are coming so we're not running off to vet appointments or other errands.

We are about 45 minutes away from the Fredericksburg PetsMart, and about the same distance away from the heart of Charlottesville. We have directions posted on our main website (www.rikkisrefuge.org).

Come Visit Us!

Tours of the refuge occur periodically, to celebrate special occasions or just because! Space is limited on our tours and RSVPs are required.

Volunteers are welcome, rain or shine. Please call or email to let us know when you want to help and how you'd like to do it!

People interested in meeting our animals at the refuge are welcome, but you will need to schedule an appointment ahead of time so that we can be sure a caretaker or seasoned volunteer will be available to help you.
