The Main Street Group is proud to be the sponsor of the 2014 Richmond SPCA Progressive Dinner. Our affiliation with the Richmond SPCA goes back 15 years. Robin Starr, CEO; Tamsen Heckel Kingry, COO; and Connie Moser, CFO are friends, and we work closely with Connie in managing the Richmond SPCA’s retirement plan.
If you read Robin’s bio on the organization’s website (richmondspca.org), she modestly addresses the building of the Robins-Starr Humane Center. What she doesn’t say is that she was instrumental in developing the humane society into the absolutely “paw-some” facility it is today.
With the support of community leaders such as E. Claiborne Robins, Jr., Robin and her team raised about $14 million to fund and sustain the organization’s state-of-the-art humane center and crucially-important no-kill operating model.
We encourage all of our clients and friends to visit the Robins-Starr Humane Center. It’s an amazing and very fun place. Whether it’s the Clinic for Compassionate Care, providing low-cost, full-service care to pets of low-income families, or the adoption center filled with dog and cat living rooms, or the enormous track and training center, you’ll know you’re standing in a wonderful place. It will dispel any misconceptions you might have previously held about an animal shelter.
Our community should be proud of the work the Richmond SPCA, under its leadership, has done to improve the lives of animals in the Richmond metro area.
If you’re an animal lover, give our office a call, and we’ll arrange to meet you there to give you a tour. We promise, you’ll think this place is absolutely the “cat’s meow!”
