RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond Animal Care and Control is giving away $100,000 in the name of Tommie, the pit bull that was set on fire at Abner Clay Park earlier this year.
“RACC Foundation created the Tommie Fund, which will help support the cost of emergency medical care for animals in other municipal shelters across Virginia,” the animal shelter wrote in a Facebook post.
The $100,000 was raised by the RACC from #TeamTommie T-shirt sales.
Virginia animal shelters were notified by email this morning about the Tommie Fund and were encouraged to apply, the RACC said.
