Rikki's Refuge is an independent, all species, no-kill sanctuary located on over 330 acres of land in Orange, Virginia. Most of this land, which includes streams and beaver ponds, is set aside as a protected area for native Virginia plants and wildlife. The remaining acreage is used to house and care for companion and farm animals who have been abandoned or displaced. From the very beginning, Rikki's Refuge has accepted animals into the sanctuary without discriminating against age, health condition, breed, adoptability, or any of the other labels that often warrant a death sentence. All are welcome to live a comfortable life at the refuge.

Maintaining a safe haven for Virginia flora and fauna
is preserving the habitats of a wealth of Virginian plants, trees,
flowers, animals, birds, and reptiles. By ensuring that our woodlands
will never be developed we are also protecting the rest stops
of many kinds of migratory birds.Rikki's provides hundreds of acres of protected
woodlands for native Virginia wildlife and supports the efforts
of licensed wildlife rehabilitators.
