It's been two months since my Richardson Rescue rescued me! I lost my girl of 12 years 3 and a half months ago.. I was sad, lost .. oh so lost. My good friend found "Delilah" on petfinder.com.. he also found Frank. He emailed me links.. Frank was an older shepherd (sable) adorable.. but Miss Delilah.. looked EXACTLY like the girl I just lost.. I emailed both rescues.. Franks rescue did not respond but someone from Richardson's did.. giving me instructions on how to meet this amazing creature. I applied, we got approved and I can't even begin to tell you how excited and happy we are with our girl Delilah! She is the awesomest dog!! Everyone at Richardson's was so nice when we went to meet and get her. So pleased with the whole expeirence. We took our Delilah to our vet who said, "this dog was well taken care of".. she was clean, well behaved and just amazing. She has been an instant member of my family since the second we met! Can't say enough about Richardson's Rescue and the life saver that rescued me from my saddness of losing my girl to canine degenerative myelopathy before her. Thank you Richardson's for my new daughter!! She is AWESOME!

We found our match made in heaven at this rescue. Our Little Zoey was well-taken care of by the folks at Richardson's Rescue. I was impressed with the organization and thoroughness of their records and the clear expectations they had of us as Zoey's potential new family. We were on a dog search for our child, and Zoey was not our choice for her, however, we could not get Zoey out of our minds. Ms. Boseman went out of her way to accommodate this adoption by coming in on her day off--Christmas Eve. I think she knew instinctively Zoey was meant for our family. Two 2-hour drives to their facility were well worth the time and effort.

We adopted our newest family member, Abby, a 6 month old lab/Shepard/hound mix in April 2013 through LuLu's Rescue in Doylestown, PA. Through research we learned that Abby started her journey to us from Richardson 's Rescue. We were able to learn a little more about our girls past and are so grateful to the kind staff at Richardson's who gave our girl a second chance at life.

We got our Murphy dog here December 2012. The place was clean and the staff extremely friendly and knowledgable. What they do for all the animals there is very commendable.

I got Gracie Mae, a border collie/shepard mix from Richardson Rescue in July of this year. The rescue is wonderful to their animals, and they go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating to prospective pet owners. I had a great experience with this rescue and I recommend them to friends and family who are looking for a new pet. I will definitely go back when it's time to rescue another :)

We just got our puppy at Richardson Rescue...they are a facility that is loving and kind to animals. They take them in and treat them like family. They are a no kill facility and are full of dogs and cats, so please consider adopting from this wonderful non-profit. If you can't adopt, please consider donating!

This rescue goes above and beyond for the animals in their care. They saved a dog from my local shelter that was scheduled to be gassed within hours. I transported the dog to them and was amazing at the facility and well the animals are cared for. I would highly recommend Richardson Rescue to anyone looking to add a new furry family member to their home.

We adopted Jake, our Jack Russell Terrier, from Richardson Rescue, and couldn't be happier. I can't imagine life without him. Janet and her staff were wonderful to deal with. They provide such a great service for our area -- they truly try to save every animal they can. We should clone them.

I wouldn't change a thing, except give them lots of money to continue the good work that they do.
