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.

WE adopted a beautiful lab mix a few weeks ago. She was well cared for and the rescue was friendly yet thorough during the adoption process. We love our pup and can't imagine our home without her! We are so graceful to Richardson Rescue!

I have been volunteering with Richardson Rescue for more than a year, and the staff is wonderful. They take in many breeds of dogs and cats, and do anything they can to help others in the community with their animals.

The people at Richardson Rescue are awesome! They try to save every animal that they can. They have provided a great service to our community; they have saved over 5000 lives! Any donation given to Richardson Rescue is going to a great cause- they use their funds to directly care for their animals!

Great Place! The staff is very nice, and they make sure the animals there are well taken care of! They work with each dog to be sure he/she finds the loving home they deserve. If anyone is looking for a dog or cat, I would highly recommend Richardson Rescue!

Review from Guidestar

Having been both volunteer and adopter for a number of years now, I've seen the many facets of fine care, both medical and emotional, given to homeless or unwanted "friends" that have rightfully given Richardson Rescue the five stars above. Our latest addition at home, Dotty, is an aged tiny Beagle, who was found wandering, in a parking lot in Rock Hill. She has a slight limp, and is terrified by unexpected noises. Yet when outside (or even inside!), should she hear a shot in the woods ring out, sharp barks from a once noble little hunting dog come alive once more. We've found that her greatest desire in life is simply to have a safe, quiet little space to lay down in. There are precious few of those in parking lots. Dotty is only one example of the many stories of a loving second chance provided at Richardson Rescue. Well done and God Bless!!
