I am reaching out to all animal groups around the United States and found Richardson Rescue. In my case, my tenant's dog was brutally raped by a convicted sexual predator. This is happening all over and needs to stop! I have started an organization, T.A.P. Together Against Predators. If all animal lovers band together, we can change these laws and protect animals who do not have a voice, WE must be their voice. Please like, follow and share our page https://www.facebook.com/tap.together
I talked with the owner of Richardson Rescue and found her to be very professional and what she does to help these animals is priceless!!! Thank you Richardson Rescue for what you do!

This animal rescue is great! They do so much with what they have, they take great care of the animals. I recommend to make an appointment and go adopt a healthy animal ~ Or, you can donate needed items, money or your time!

We adopted one of our kitties from them and I was impressed with how thorough the adoption process was. It made me feel good to know that all of the adoptions are assured a great home! They also helped pay for my dog to get fixed and being on a limited disability income...that was a huge help! People don't want to give up their animals when situations change and money gets tight. They are fantastic and wonderful in every way and I will always brag on them and appreciate what they have done for me!

Richardson Rescue is beyond impressive. I have watched this business first handed and seen the love for these animals. I was so impressed with the way of the adoption being more like a baby than a pup or kitty...They truly follow policy, health, love , and cleanliness when it comes to these animals. You walk thru and u just want to take them all and love them. Kudo's to RR for huge hearts and hard work!!!! If--- THEY DON'T SEE Love in your heart, you will see them in your rear view mirror as you drive away without a loving pet.!!! Thanks for caring Richardson Rescue!!!

We have adopted twice from Richardson Rescue, and we have three rescues, (dogs) total. Richardson is one of the best, certainly most caring pet rescue groups we've ever dealt with. They know and love their animals, taking care to make the perfect match for the animal and the adopter. They do not take the process lightly, wanting each and every adoption to be a success. When on the rare occasion that it is not, they take back the animal, loving and caring for it until the right person does come along. We will always support Richardson Rescue and our future adoptions will come from them!

We have adopted two dogs from Richardson Rescue and they are the absolute best! Janet is such a devoted, skilled and compassionate animal advocate. Her organization is run with 100% attention to her animals ... insuring their safety, cleanliness & above all, making sure when they are adopted they are all placed in forever, loving homes. She is truly an angel and if we had more rescue organizations of the high caliber & standards shown by Richardson Rescue, we would be well on our way to stopping the misery that homeless pets endure.

I know the founder of this rescue well and know first hand what a wonderful job they do. they have also helped me out on several occasions with dogs I have rescued and I needed a place for them to go. Janet is ALWAYS there for the animals.

I got my fur baby through these wonderful people a year ago. When they were at pet smart in rock hill, and to this day when ever I go to pet smart with my little guy he runs over to where they set up first thing in hopes of seeing the wonderful staff and volunteers of Richardson Rescue. So if that's not an endorsement from someone who knows then I'm not sure what is they really love respect and care for all their rescues like they were family.

I came to Richardson Rescue almost a year ago with a broken heart. I had just lost my very best friend, my pitbull Reese. My home and heart seemed empty without her in them, and I won't lie, they still do as she was irreplaceable. But, the staff at Richardson made me feel very welcome and really understood what I was going through! With Reese being my first rescue, I felt that the only way to honor her appropriately was to adopt another dog and give that dog the same loving home that I had given Reese! I actually ended up falling in love with and adopting 2 sweet boys from Richardson, and they are my whole world!! Anyone who has ever loved a dog knows how special that bond is, and I have Richardson Rescue to thank for my sweet babies that are cuddling with me right now!!

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.
