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!

Iv been volunteering with Richardson Rescue for a few months now. Everyone is very loving, kind hearted and want the best for all of the animals there. All of the animals at the rescue are very well taken care of, sweet and affectionate. I feel at home when i am there. It is such a pleasure working with them.

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.

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.
