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! Tracy Opra T.A.P. Together Against Predators

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.

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!

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 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.

We adopted Lilypad aka Penny Lane mid May this year. She is an 18 month old Masteiller. Richardson Rescue was integral in finding the perfect match for our dominate male dog of 7 yrs. we truly have a loving sweet pup for my son that gets along well with my daughters dog. Richardson does an excellent job of care and placement and loves follow up pictures, they really have the best interest of the animals above all else, which is paramount to a rescue. Thank you Richardson Rescue, we love our Penny Lane!

We adopted both our dogs about a year and a half ago. One was already a year old and the other was a puppy. Both were in excellent health. Adopting from Richardson Rescue was a wonderful experience that brought new joy into our home.
