My wife and I drove two hours from Black Mountain to look at a puppy that we saw online at Richardson Rescue. As we were driving up to the shelter, which is in the middle of nowhere, I was wondering what we were in for, but the old adage applies, "don't judge a book by it's cover". Yes, there are lots of animals and it's chaotic, and it certainly is not a fancy new facility, but the people are awesome! If anyone deserves a new facility it's the great folks at RR. They take the time to research the prospective pet owners and they want to make sure that they are placing these dogs and cats in great households. We recently lost our shepherd due to cancer and we searched high and low for a new addition to the family. We found Coltrane a beautiful lab-shepherd mix and we were excited to hear that all his littermates were adopted as well! We will go back to RR in the future should we decide to expand the family again, and we are sending them pics of Coltrane as he grows up. I am also recommending to all of our dog loving friends, that they donate to RR to help them keep up their wonderful work!
