This guys foot was injured in a parking lot … they think it might have been run over … he was turned over to the emergency hospital for treatment, then to Rikki’s Refuge. Nothing broken, but foot badly abraded … he’s getting healing treatment and therapy, here swimming in warm water, till he heals, then he’ll join the other ducks at Rikki’s.

A low-cost spay/neuter clinic open to the public, the Virginia Kincheloe Spay/Neuter Clinic is the very first of its kind in the Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, and Stafford, Virginia area. It is also, we believe, the first to be a cooperative effort among county government, private industry, and a charitable animal welfare organization.

This clinic was the lifelong dream of the late Virginia Kincheloe, a resident of Spotsylvania County. It is also a labor of love for all the individuals involved in creating and maintaining it.

Cat Spay $55
Cat Neuter $40
Canine Spay/Neuter:
5-50lbs- $85
