Richardson Rescue has a wonderful staff, that truly care and love what they do and why they do it. All of their animals are very well taken care of with misting systems, pools and beds. They have a open area for the dogs to have play time and get out and about and relax outside. They recently have moved into their new building which is absolutely stunning. Tons of room for adoption families and visiting appointments. A excellent area with crates inside for the animals as well. They have all ages,breeds, and sizes at the rescue and they all need loving homes. I highly recommend adopting one of their orphans, They take there time to make sure that each pet is going to a good home, and to the right family. I admire what they do.

Richardson Rescue is an amazing organization. I have had a relationship with the organization for the last 3 years. I have adopted 4 amazing cuties from Richardson. They are in contact with me to follow up on how our pups are doing and have been available for any questions or concerns. They do their very best to help any animal at the rescue or elsewhere find a great home. I consider the team at Richardson to be an extension of my family. Please support this wonderful and loving organization.

This is an absolutely wonderful organization. They are so compassionate and take in so many animals in need. You can tell how much they love each and everyone by looking at their Facebook page. And they love to stay in touch with the animals and their families even years after the adoption took place. We got our chocolate lab there when he was four and a half months old. He is almost 4 now. And they still love to hear all about his escapades which are many! We make regular donations because we love them so much. Thank you Richardson rescue!

We adopted our chocolate lab from Richardson rescue two years ago. They are a wonderful organization and care deeply for the animals. Even after you adopt your Pet they never forget them and love to get updates. You can see the love in each and every employee.

My family just adopted a very sweet Pomeranian saved from a puppy mill by Richardson Rescue and I cannot say enough positives about the way we have been treated and also about the way they care for animals there. The facility is amazing and the staff are very well trained and caring with the animals. We have been so impressed that we are now in process of adopting another rescued Pomeranian from them. I would recommend them to anyone considering adopting a dog.

Our family recently visited Richardson Rescue and adopted a very cute, loving dog named Asher. He has been a blessing to our family and is very spoiled.
Thank you staff at Richardson Rescue for helping us find the perfect addition to our family.

I have adopted two babies from Richardson Rescue. A Chihuahua and a beautiful blue and white Pit Bull. Our bulldog, Chunga, is my husbands constant companion and is in his truck everytime he is ready to roll. He even wears shades and loves the photos people take of him. Chunga has a beautiful nature and lives quite peacefully with the two Chihuahuas also in my home. The staff knows each of the personalities of the dogs in their care and try to match their pets with the home. Even after adopting, I was invited to call if I had any questions about my new babies. You feel like family when you adopt from this rescue. You also know you will receive a healthy, happy pet. I recommend them to anyone wanting to adopt a rescue dog or make a donation. The rescue is a clean, happy place for the pets in their care and they make all donations count.

I had the pleasure of working with Richardson Rescue for two days and I absolutely love them. They are the nicest people doing a business for a great cause. I highly recommend them. All their animals are taken care of extremely well. They have the sweetest animals. They make sure their animals will go to a great home. I will be volunteering again. Adopting from here promises a great animal. They have some incredible rescue stories and do what is best for all the animals. They truly care about these animals and that is what makes it so great to adopt from them because you know they are loved and well cared for. If you want to adopt a great animal and help this cause Richardson Rescue is a great place to go. They are doing amazing things for these animals.
