Students give back to Richmond animal shelter

Through the Career and Transition Services (CATS) of St. Joseph’s Villa, Brook Road Academy students have begun volunteering with Richmond Animal Care and Control. Students help the shelter provide care to adoptable pets while learning valuable job skills and about careers working with animals.

Our CATS staff is always looking for new ways to help our students engage with the community. If you are interested in providing an opportunity, please call Matthew Kreydatus, CATS director, at 804-553-3224.

For many students, working with animals is a cathartic experience.
