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

Our family recently visited Richardson Rescue and adopted a very cute, loving dog named Asher. He has been a blessing to our family and is very spoiled.
Thank you staff at Richardson Rescue for helping us find the perfect addition to our family.

Richardson Rescue has a wonderful staff, that truly care and love what they do and why they do it. All of their animals are very well taken care of with misting systems, pools and beds. They have a open area for the dogs to have play time and get out and about and relax outside. They recently have moved into their new building which is absolutely stunning. Tons of room for adoption families and visiting appointments. A excellent area with crates inside for the animals as well. They have all ages,breeds, and sizes at the rescue and they all need loving homes. I highly recommend adopting one of their orphans, They take there time to make sure that each pet is going to a good home, and to the right family. I admire what they 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.
