The Rockbridge SPCA Fund was created by Mr. Fred C. Swope. As a local resident, Mr. Swope has dedicated much of his life to his farm in Fairfield, to his biology and chemistry students at VMI, and his family. Mr. Swope has always had a heart for animals, and feels like they should not suffer at the hands of human irresponsibility. He began this fund in hopes to support the pets who are not thought about, and who are often discarded as insignificant. He hopes to instill this thought and belief in others through the creation of the Rockbridge SPCA Fund. May this fund help provide relief for those who truly cannot take care of themselves — the unwanted and uncared for pets.
