Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival

Rikki’s Refuge was at the Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at Lee Park! WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME! We really enjoyed visiting with the other vendors and animal rescue organizations that were represented. Our visitors were wonderful folks and we appreciated the time they took to visit our booth and to love on Opie. A great big thank you to Ron for organizing everything for us and to all the volunteers who worked hard to make this day special!
