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!

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!!!

Richardson Rescue is a caring and nurturing rescue in rural York, SC. I have taken a couple of strays there over the years and they have treated them well and found forever homes for them. A few weeks ago, there was a sweet lab mix wandering the road, no collar, no info. He followed my car and I took him to Richardson. There was no chip, but they took him in and posted pictures and Yay! The sweet boy's owner came in and picked him up. Although they were full, Janet did not turn this good little pup away.

Consider a donation to help feed and keep these pups healthy while they await the new pawrents. You can easily drop ship food, treats and supplies from Amazon - their web site has a wish list.

After the recent fire, they are rebuilding and just as dedicated to saving these lives as before. Hats off to Janet and her wonderful team of volunteers!

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I have adopted two babies from Richardson Rescue. A Chihuahua and a beautiful blue and white Pit Bull. Our bulldog, Chunga, is my husbands constant companion and is in his truck everytime he is ready to roll. He even wears shades and loves the photos people take of him. Chunga has a beautiful nature and lives quite peacefully with the two Chihuahuas also in my home. The staff knows each of the personalities of the dogs in their care and try to match their pets with the home. Even after adopting, I was invited to call if I had any questions about my new babies. You feel like family when you adopt from this rescue. You also know you will receive a healthy, happy pet. I recommend them to anyone wanting to adopt a rescue dog or make a donation. The rescue is a clean, happy place for the pets in their care and they make all donations count.
