  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11546498-35374091

Hippo is quite lovely as she perches herself high above her kingdom in order to have the best view. She likes to make all the decisions and be totally in the loop on everything going on around her. If you're heading out for the day, she expects to be updated of any changes to your schedule so she can be sure to greet you when you get home. Hippo may not overly shower her family with affection, but she will always be there for them in her own special ways so they know how much she cares. If you're cool with a companion who is happy relaxing quietly on her throne while keeping an eye on you, then please visit Hippo today!

About Richmond SPCA

About Our Shelter...

The Richmond SPCA, founded in 1891, is a non-profit, no-kill humane organization dedicated to the principle that every life is precious. As a national leader in humane care and education, the Richmond SPCA is aggressively tackling the problem of pet overpopulation through education, adoption, rehabilitation and spay/neuter. The organization saves the lives of more than 4,000 homeless animals each year and cares for approximately 350 cats and dogs daily.

The Richmond SPCA is not affiliated with any other private animal welfare organization or SPCA but has relationships with Richmond City Animal Control, Hanover County Animal Control, and Goochland County Animal Control, whereby we transfer animals from the municipal shelter to our own Robins-Starr Humane Center to be placed for adoption.
