Dear Richmond Friends of Animals,

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication in making 2013 a great year for animals in the Richmond area! With your help, we:
*Collected thousands of signatures, generated a HUGE presence outside the cruel bull run, garnered lots of local media coverage, influencing countless people on why getting chased by terrified animals is NOT fun or humane!
*Protested Ringling Circus for the 5th year in a row, showing them that Richmond won't tolerate beating and bullhooks!
*Helped get exposure and potential homes for lots of lovable pups in partnership with Richmond Animal Care and Control and Fin & Feather Pet Center!
*Tabled at several local events, getting our name and compassionate message out there!
*Delivered over 1700 petition signatures to Bistro Bobette urging the restaurant to stop dishing up cruel foie gras!
*Shared yummy recipes at potlucks and cooking demos and ate delicious food at local veg-friendly eateries!
*Continued protesting at Alan Furs and held another successful Fur-Free Friday, receiving tons of honks and thumbs up from compassionate passerby!
*Teamed up with the Humane Society to host an advocacy training, imparting skills to enact change for animals on dozens of people!
We couldn't have done it without your voices, your willingness to drive out to events, your emails to businesses asking them to make kinder decisions, and your compassion.
Here's to an even bigger 2014! And to kick it off, please join us at the below event - Lobby Day 2014! We hope to see all of your smiling faces ready for another year to help animals!

Subject: (EVENT) HSUS Lobby Day - January 23rd, 2014 - 9am-3pm

Good evening. 

We wanted to make everyone aware of an important event planned by HSUS in the coming weeks. 

HSUS Lobby Day is scheduled for Thursday, January 23rd from 9am to 3pm at the General Assembly Buildingand we'd encourage any RFA members who can make it to attend. This is an annual event intended to allow animal advocates face time with legislators. Individuals who have gone to prior Lobby Days have consistently indicated it was a good use of time as a direct channel to legislators who have the power to make meaningful changes on behalf of animals. 

Please click the link below to SIGN UP if you plan to attend. 
RFA members attending are encouraged to meet inside the door on the first floor of the General Assembly a few minutes prior to 9am so we can head up as a group. For any specific questions on RFA attendance or meeting places, please contact Sarah Harper at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
PLEASE SHARE - the more people we have present to represent the interest of the animals, the better for everyone!
