We adopted our fur baby, Razz, in July 2012. He is now nine years old and is our family!!! I have referred friends who have adopted as well. We all had the same excellent experience!!!!
We have been fortunate, and blessed, to be adopted by two Richardson Rescue fur babies. Our gorgeous, Ghost. Our fun sized, Snickers. Wonderful local rescue. Amazing, caring staff. If I could, I would rescue them all. They are all well taken care of in their transition to finding their forever home. ķ ½ķ°¾ā¤ļø
I adopted my 9-year old Timber (Half-Pom/Half Chi) when he was just a few months old. I had recently lost my very beloved Dakota, and my heart ached. I saw a posting on Facebook, which had me click on Richardson Rescue, and there was my future baby on the screen! I filled out the application, got accepted, and made the drive out to York, SC to meet him. He was called Squishy, but he reminded me of a little red fox. So we changed his name to Timber (Fox) - Timby for short. My Timber is now a very happy, very loved guy - who now has to deal with two babies that were rescued from another shelter. Being a Big Brother isn't coming easy - Timber has been spoiled for so long. Thanks to Richardson Rescue for this gift of unconditional love!
We adopted a terrific little dog from Richardson Rescue. The whole process was smooth from start to finish. And, we couldnāt be happier with our new little furry friend.
My Daughters Girl Scout trip donated money and supplies over 8 years ago and that has lead our family to continue to support these amazing people. God love the workers at Richardson Rescue they give their heart and soul to healing these animals and giving them fur-ever homes. Thankful to have them in our community!
We were looking for a Boxer after losing one of ours a few months ago. We remembered that Richardson Rescue was local so we looked on their website. There weren't any boxers, but a soulful Great Pyrenees, Maggie, was looking back at us in the pictures on the website. We completed an application and heard back quickly. Arrangements were also made quickly to go visit and meet our new girl. We could tell that they were experienced with matching the dog breed with potential owners. Maggie has been with us for over a month and has been a perfect fit. If we ever need to adopt another dog, we will definitely go to Richardson Rescue. They were great to work with and you could tell they truly cared about the animals they were trying to regime.
We had just come through a heartbreaking experience with a local rescue adopting a sweet pup, who had medical issues, including significant heart damage due to heart worms, that were minimized or never disclosed. So when we were ready to open our hearts to another pup our vet encouraged us to look at rescues that were smaller and be willing to look outside the area. Our daughter found Richardson Rescue (which was 3 hours away) when she saw Caneās picture and instantly fell in love. The description of how Cane came to Richardsonās felt ārealā as the fact that he didnāt play well with others was addressed, but his personality and quirkiness was captured perfectly. We contacted Richardsonās and set up a visit. Cane was kept in the office, the whole not playing well with othersāŗļø, and when we walked in he immediately ran to my husband who was first to kneel down, and snuggled up to him! It was like he said to himself, āI am going home with them!ā When we asked about changing his name their immediate response was that would not be good for him. We could tell by that response that their priority was Cane and finding the right home for him. After a long discussion about Canes history and a tour of their facility, it was clear to us that Cane was going to join our family! 3 1/2 years later we cannot imagine our life w/o him! Our neighbors call him āMr. Personality!ā We will forever be grateful to Richardson Rescue for bringing Cane to us!
I adopted Theo from Richardson Rescue a couple months ago and couldnāt be happier with my experience. The process was simple and they answered all of our questions. They were very professional and we recommend them to anyone wanting a dog to love! Donāt pay a high price for a petā¦adopt one who really needs a home!
Rescued my two best boys from Richardson!! Their care and passion for what they are doing really shows!!
We adopted our chihuahua mix from Richardson Rescue almost 4 years ago. We love these guys and what they do for fur babies!!! Great organization!
Remember your Bubba? This is gotcha day for our Droopy-2/13/16 and recently in our backyard. He is the most chill dog and perfect for our family. He thinks he is a lap dog which is fine with us, all 80 pounds. Droopy has brought us so much joy. Thank you Richardson Rescue for saving him and bringing much love to our family.
We searched a long time for our 4 legged baby, visiting many rescues. Richardson was by far the best. They know their pets and are the best at matching dogs with ātheir peopleā. Many of our friends and family only choose Richardson Rescue to get their dogs. We love Richardson Rescue and will be a part of the Richardson Rescue family forever!
We had a wonderful experience adopting through Richardson Rescue. It is clear they care deeply about the health and well-being of the animals in their care. We couldnāt be happier with our sweet Piper.
Richardson is the best! We have adopted 3 dogs from them now. They were very helpful in finding the right first dog for our family. It went so well that we just took in two senior dogs. Really nice to work with, super helpful and great at matching dogs with people!
We got Mokey Joe (formerly Smokey) and it was instant love. We filled out the paperwork and were approved for a visit. We went to look at a certain dog but left with a different that fit our life style perfectly. Keep an open mind! The place was very clean and most dogs were outside enjoying the day. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We have donated money and supplies since our visit. Would go back if we decide to add to our family.
I have adopted four puppies from Richardson Rescue over the years since 2009. This rescue is the gold standard. I am so thankful and grateful for all the work they do to save the animals.
My family and I have adopted 4 pets through Richardson Rescue. We have been supporters for years, and love the Richardsons and their rescue. They not only support and care for their orphaned animals before adoption, but after adoption as well. I have only had wonderful experiences with Richardson Rescue - they make you feel like you have joined a family when you adopt. This rescue is all heart.
We adopted our wonderful dog, Lexi from Richardson around 2 years ago. They are awesome people and really are passionate about helping the animals and getting them into good homes. We absolutely love Lexi and couldnāt imagine life with out her. Thank you for all that you do and keep up the amazing work!
Thank you so much and we wish you many loving and adventurous years with Lexi. This is why we do what we do.
Richardson Rescue is a top-notch animal rescue! After adopting one dog from them, I became a donor. Eventually I adopted a second dog from RR, one that they'd had since he was rescued from a kill shelter with the rest of his litter. He was with them for six years because there just wasn't anything notable about him -- a black, short-haired pit mix. But they never gave up on him, and when he and I met I knew I had to bring him home. I'm so glad they never gave up because he may be the best dog I've every had -- a perfect gentleman, loving, and well-behaved. I'm so glad he waited so that I could be the one to adopt him!
Awww, we are so happy that he found you too. He could not have found a better mom and we love the updates on our boy. Thanks so much and give Darby a big hug and kiss from all of us here.
We adopted Wiley from them and he was so well cared for and managed! Great facility. Good organization. Great people.
Thank you so much. We do our very best for the Orphans in our care until they find their "furever" family.
I have followed and been a supporter of Richardson Rescue for many years. They take such great care of and truly love the fur babies that they take in and work hard to find their perfect forever homes. It's so heartwarming to see pictures posted of the pets with their new families as well as the updates and pictures of previously adopted ones.ā¤
Thank you and we are very happy that you love the updates as much as we do. There are days that they keep us going and remind us of why we continue to rescue these needy Orphans. But, we could not do this without regular donors like you. Thanks again so much.
They are the best! They take care of all medical needs and give dogs much needed love.
Thanks so much Genie! We couldn't do this without our wonderful donors and friends like you. And we do admit to spoiling and loving these babies as much as possible.
Wonderful people who care deeply for the animals. They do everything possible to save even the hard cases and the throw always. They have a huge heart and all of the money goes for the animals. They rely on donations for many things. They help the community with pets. I cannot praise them enough!
We got Pax from Richardson Rescue. He has been an absolute Godsend for our 87 year old Mother. They matched them up perfectly
I adopted Drake in June of 2011. He was almost 2. He turns 10 next week. He has been a Godsend.
We adopted our sweet Blondie puppy from Richardson five years ago. Since then we've gone and volunteered a number of times. In all of these interactions, we've been very impressed.
When we first went to look to adopt our dog, I was pleased by how clean everything was. Dogs, of course, can get dirty or use the bathroom. But things were cleaned up in a timely manner that kept the pens and the open yard from looking dirty or smelling.
All of the workers seem to genuinely care about the animals. They know them by name and talk to them like little kids. They take their care seriously and work hard keeping pets happy and cared for as well as handling medical problems from animals brought in to them.
If you're looking to adopt a dog, I can highly recommend Richardson!
Last Christmas we decided to get a dog for our family. Although we looked around at people selling pets or giving away puppies, we really wanted to adopt. So we started putting out feelers for a pet adoption agency. I submitted applications to several, but the process seemed to take forever! There was always a long wait between submitting my information and actually being approved to come look at a pet.
I found Richardson Rescue online, and I called for more information. As soon as I submitted an application, I heard back that very afternoon, and we were invited to come an look at dogs the next day. I know they were thorough in checking because they called our current veterinarian, and they asked relevant questions. But they were also interested in getting us out and actually picking a pet quickly.
We were very impressed at how well the staff seemed to treat the animals and how well they knew each one. When we found our sweet girl, it was obvious that she loved them and that they had taken good care of her.
Since our adoption, we've gone to volunteer a few times. I'm impressed by how well they keep the animals pens cleaned and keep the animals clean and fed and watered. I'm especially impressed by how they seek to learn each animal's needs and help them become more adoptable by working with them. Even though they are extremely busy, they take the time to know what every animal's temperament is and what they need.
I know we've been blessed with a sweet, sweet dog that is the perfect fit for our family. And much of the credit for that goes to Richardson- for the care they took of her before we got her. I'm very thankful!
I adopted one of my dogs from Richards and rescue about 5 years ago they have an abundance of animals that they take yen and care for regardless of the animal's condition in most cases. They take in older pets younger pets and I don't think they discriminate on breed either. They truly truly care about what they do and love the animals they are amazing rescue organization and I am so thankful to have gotten my dog Kona from them.
We adopted Ruby in 2009, a very powerful experience since she bonded immediately with Michael who has autism. We returned here in April to look for two new rescues. Thanks to the very caring staff we found Honey and Willow, 7 and 5 months old bundles of love. They are happily settled in our home now. Thanks Richardson Rescue for all you do!
Unbelievable dedication to a great cause!!! They have the knowledge, experience, and dedication that makes this charity one of the best anywhere!
My husband and I just got married April 15th and officially started our life together. We always felt there was something missing and when I saw my sweet Nova come across Facebook I just melted. We went to see her 2 days later and we fell in love. She was so sweet and had such an amazing temperament. We took her home that day! (We had already filled out the application prior and the rescue did a thorough check)
We were very impressed with the rescue and how clean and well taken care of the animals were! I would highly recommend adopting from Richardson Rescue
I am a 77 year old woman who has always had large dogs. In June of 2016, I decided to take a chance and get another dog; since my large dog Sam had died two years prior. My granddaughter went with me to Richardson Rescue; a 90 minute drive. We had seen a dog on their site. When we met him, the staff recognized that he was not going to be a prefect fit. Then one of the staff went back and brought out Tango, a mix, small puppy. It was love at first sight. The staff was knowledgeable, kind and helpful.
I began following the rescue a few years ago through another friend's link on Facebook. Although I now live in the NC mountains, I am from the Charlotte area. My previous, beloved dog was from a similar small rescue in Rock HIll, SC,and my current pet is from a small rescue in the Atlanta area. I followed the plight of some rescue doggies with particular needs and donated modestly to this rescue. Richardson does an excellent job of posting specific needs for specific animals and they are timely with updates and feedback. I so much appreciate the humane work they do. Sometimes, both the funds and the personal stories get lost in larger organizations. Richardson is one of the best!
Love this place and the hearts of all involved. We got Bailey in January and he has filled the hole in our hearts from losing our dog last October. That little mutt may have been at a pet rescue but he rescued our family
Richardson Rescue is the best!! Adopted our sweet Ellie from them. The care and love they give all their rescues is outstanding.
Spent the day with Laura and Ashley volunteering with my family. We were so glad to get an opportunity to help this wonderful organization. The animals are well taken care of and loved. It was great knowing that we were helping them and the wonderful animals that they care for. It was a great growing experience for our 14 year old son and us too! Thank you, Richardson Rescue, for all that you do for these babies and allowing us to be a small part of it.
When my Mom needed a friend, Richardson Rescue helped us find the perfect companion.
I rescued āCleoā from this group about 8 years ago after the loss of my Border, āGracie.ā I could tell she was well taken care of and loved during her stay at the Rescue. Almost seven years later I got the opportunity to visit the Rescue and help them with a dog adoption day at a local pet food supply, where I fell in love with another dog and adopted my 2nd family member. I also got to know more of the staff and learned that their passion and love of these babies is genuine. Please donāt shop for your companion. Adopt!
Thank you so much for your support and for giving our babies such a great home. We couldn't ask for more. Love the pictures of them all cozy on the couch. Doesn't get any better than that!
We got our sweet little Chewy from them and were impressed by the wonderfully clean facility and the commitment of the entire staff. These people genuinely love these animals.
What an adorable picture! He was such a great little dog here and it touches our hearts to see him living the good life with his great new mom. Thanks so much Elizabeth!
I am a strong supporter of rescues as I have 4 so I follow many of them. Richardson seems extra special because they take many animals that other shelters don't. Even if they don't have space, they share the story to find that special match. I support them through Amazon Smile. Very happy to rate them 5 stars.
Richardson Rescue made such a positive impact in my adoption experience. When I visited the rescue I was impressed by how well the animals were cared for, and the helpful volunteers who answered all of my questions. I will be adopting from them again in the future! Thank you Richardson Rescue!
Thank you so much!
I adopted my boy in 2010. The group of people were awesome, the care of the critters is fantastic. I recommend anyone looking to adopt a fur baby, contact Richardson Rescue.
Thank you so much Lucy and your baby looks happy to be out and about. We love the beautiful lives our "furbabies" have in their new homes.
We adopted our two beautiful pups from Richardson Rescue last year.
We had a wonderful experience with this Rescue!
The Flynn family
Thank you so much and so happy that you are enjoying your new family members.
We adopted Trey almost 2 years ago and never knew how much we would love him. Trey was at another rescue about to be put down. The Richardson team was picking up another dog and saw Trey and decided they would take a chance on him and bring him back to their place. We are so thankful they did because we love him so much and canāt imagine a day without him now. Thank you from the bottom of our heart for all you do!!
Wow! He is so handsome! Yes, he has come a long way from the shelter. Thanks for giving him a chance and such a great home.
We adopted Meesah from Richardson Rescue almost 5 years ago! They were amazing to work with, kind, and ensure that you are a good match for each animals needs. Meesah completed our family and we will forever be grateful to Richardson Rescue!
Well, we can see she is living the life and we truly appreciate your commitment to her. She is such a beautiful girl and love this picture. You can see the love she has for you. Thank you.
Great organization, really cares about animals. We adopted Afra there and they were wonderful!
Wow, Afra is gorgeous and looks so comfortable. Thanks for giving her such a great home.
Richardson is a small local rescue with a huge heart. I have been a supporter for several years and have visited the rescue to drop off donations on different occasions. I am always impressed by the clean, happy atmosphere they create to house homeless pets. The staff go out of their way to make sure that the residents are not only taken care of, but also know they are safe and loved at last. One recent visit led to my adoption of a senior dog, Toby. Toby is 14, deaf and mostly blind. While other "shelters" may have put him down on the spot, Richardson Rescue had Toby on a cushy bed in the office - the perfect place for him to let me know that I was his new Mom. Fantastic rescue, incredible staff. Thank you Richardson, for making York County a better place.
We love our seniors! We are so happy that Toby found his perfect mom and thankful that you let him into your heart.
We adopted Biggs in February. He is a great addition to our family! He loves to play especially with our 2 pittbulls. I would definitely recommend them if your wanting to add a furbaby to your family. The staff is awesome!!!
An amazing place with people who clearly adore what they do. Thank you for our Ziggy!
Thank you for being such a good mom and love the picture. We truly appreciate it Laura.
Richardson Rescue has changed mine and my family's lives forever. We adopted Tituba (formerly Annie) from the rescue last year. She had been found on the property and was in dire need of help. Thanks to the heroes at Richardson Rescue she received top notch medical care. Her front leg had to be amputated but they never gave up on her. The staff spent months rehabilitating her. I'm eternally grateful for their tireless efforts. Not only did they save her life, but through their frequent promotion of her adoption, her story just so happened to come across my Facebook feed! And the rest, as they say, is history.
They do an incredibly thorough job of making sure a potential adopter is a good fit for the animals in their care. I was highly impressed by the compassion and love the staff members have for every single individual. The animals all seemed to be relaxed and content.
Richardson Rescue does amazing work and I'll never be able to thank them enough for all they do.
Thanks so much Samantha. Give Tituba a big hug and kiss from everyone here at Richardson Rescue. We will never forget her.
We lost our 12 year old Boxer in the fall. When we need another animal we as God to send us an animal who needs us. We were sent to Richardson Rescue by a random bank teller where Bailey stole our hearts. He was leash trained, crate trained and house trained. We adopted Bailey in January of this year. He fit in immediately and even our underappreciative feline is tolerating him. We can not speak highly enough of this group of great folks (and puppies), they are included in our monthly budget so that we do not forget how much they do for these great babies......and us.
We loved us some Bailey! We can never fully express in words how wonderful it is to see our former babies thrive in their new homes. Thanks for giving him a chance and for being such a great mom. Love it!
This rescue is fantastic! We adopted our "Cookie" from there navy treats ago! We still donate and visit regularly to help when we can. They truly care about the animals while there and after they are adopted. They are the first organization I recommend web friends are looking for fury friends!
We appreciate your confidence in our rescue efforts and the kind words. We could not continue the work we do without kind and caring individuals like you. Thanks so much!
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!
While I have never rescued from this Rescue I can tell from all of their post it is an AMAZING organization. And I do have friends that have rescued. Just from the post I see on Facebook I can tell how much they love each and every one of their rescues. And as an animal lover I wish I could take each one! But itās so nice to also see them post pictures of all of the animals they have placed in wonderful forever homes where you can see that they are getting the love that they deserve!! Keep up the great work!!!! ā¤ļø
Thank you so much!
Several months ago, I found a hungry stray cat in my yard. I started feeding it and trying to find it's owner or a new home. I had no idea she had just given birth to kittens. I found that out when she brought them up on the porch to eat their first cat food meal. Anyway, I tried several humane society locations with no luck. I contacted Richardson Rescue and they posted photos and my story online and almost overnight I had homes for the kittens and later the mother cat. Thanks Richardson Rescue.
We always try to help in any way that we can and we are very happy that everything worked out. Thanks so much for helping this mom and babies. You have a great heart.
Richardson Rescue saved Paco and brought him into our lives and for that I will be eternally grateful. The Rescue is so caring and often goes out of their way not only to save their own animals, but animals from other bad situations. Thanks for all you do!
Thank you for being a great mom Cindy. Paco posed so nice for this picture and you know we love to see them in their new homes.
Richardson Rescue is an amazing place that cares for those who have been abused or abandoned. The facility is well maintained and everyone we met there clearly loves the work they do. We found our wonderful new family member, Heinz, when visiting. They not only care for the animals, they make sure to meet and check out those of us adopting to make sure the fit is right. I truly appreciate all they do!
Great picture. You can tell he is so loved. Thanks for sharing your story and for giving this boy a wonderful home. Thank you so much!
Richardson Rescue is simply the best! They never turn away hardship cases and stay true to their mission of rescue and related community service. I've adopted one dog from them and, when I can add another, I'll look there first. Attached is a picture of E.V., whom I adopted on 5/31/2014. (Yeah, she's spoiled!)
There's our girl. She takes the best pictures and we never get tired of seeing them. Thanks so much for sharing.
We went to Richardson rescue looking for one dog last week but we came home with two great dogs. They are very clean, very well trained and trainable! They molded right into our home like they had grown up here their whole life. They are both very sweet, loyal, and no doubt in my mind grateful to join our large family. We have 3 kids and they have been great with the kids as well. We love these 2 so much already. This was my first adoption experience and this is the way to go. It is hard to explain the look of pure love these dogs give you when they realize you are their new mom/dad/sibling. Richardson Rescue will forever be a part of our lives now.
There are so many amazing things about Richardson Rescue. A few years ago they lost everything in a fire, animals were killed and hurt. They really lost everything, except hope. They continued to rebuild with the help of some animal lovers and kind, caring vet.
This says so much about Richardson Rescue, they have the we don't give up spirit. They don't give up on dogs, on cats. They help where ever they can. The are small with a giant heart. They need things, things that big rescue groups get. Food, Supplies, volunteers. We love them, they are part of our community, placing the unwanted into loving homes. The staff is amazing and all in with their group.
I stand in support with them. They are valued in our community, placing animals into loving home.
I adopted a sweet Westie mix from Richardson Rescue. They were very helpful, kind, and efficient in the process. Very caring and passionate about their work. I am so happy I found them and Scooby, now Daly! Awesome people!
We adopted Harley ( Lola) we are very pleased with the turnout. Richardsons were very accommodating because we could not take her for two weeks due to going away. We picked her up and could not be happier!!thank you for the great professional service and the love and care towards to the animals in the rescue!
Following the death of our beloved Chocolate Lab, Moose, we could no longer take not having the sounds of a furry friend in the house. Still being relatively new to the area, we happened upon Richardson Rescue through an internet search. When we went there, the staff was very welcoming and friendly. They gave us time to look at all their dogs and interact with them. They even have walking trails and areas away from the other dogs where you can spend time one on one with the dogs to see how they are with you away from the other dogs. We ended up choosing two puppies who were brother and sister. The adoption paperwork at Richardson Rescue is very meticulous. They really get the details before they let you adopt. We think that's fantastic. About 2 weeks after our adoptions, Richardson Rescue suffered a devastating fire on their property. Their primary concern was for the safety and welfare of the animals. They wasted no time rebuilding so they could continue to rescue dogs and cats and help them find forever homes. I introduced my mother and stepfather to the rescue about a year ago. They adopted a very loving dog. Everyone at Richardson Rescue was very personable and welcoming just as they were with us. They truly only have the best interests of the animals they rescue at heart.
A well run clean and "happy" facility. All the dogs are well cared for and loved. I adopted several of my pets from Richardson and they are caring, professional and all about the animals safety and well being. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a pet to join their family.
I just love Richardson Rescue and all they do for this community and the animals that need them! Our family has adopted a cat and a dog from them and they both were in excellent health and so loved and well cared for when we got them. They treat the animals in their care with such love and compassion! I follow all their stories on FB and I wish I could adopt them all! Thank you, Richardson for taking care of these babies until they find forever homes and thank you for my beautiful darling Lula who has made my life so much better happier! I am forever in your debt!
Wonderful folks who helped this pepperoni
