Richardson Rescue is an amazing organization. I have had a relationship with the organization for the last 3 years. I have adopted 4 amazing cuties from Richardson. They are in contact with me to follow up on how our pups are doing and have been available for any questions or concerns. They do their very best to help any animal at the rescue or elsewhere find a great home. I consider the team at Richardson to be an extension of my family. Please support this wonderful and loving organization.

We adopted a dog from Richardson Rescue last weekend. We were impressed by the facility and the animals looked like they were all well cared for. We submitted an application and were approved to come and select our dog the next day. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would adopt from them again.

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!

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!

This is an absolutely wonderful organization. They are so compassionate and take in so many animals in need. You can tell how much they love each and everyone by looking at their Facebook page. And they love to stay in touch with the animals and their families even years after the adoption took place. We got our chocolate lab there when he was four and a half months old. He is almost 4 now. And they still love to hear all about his escapades which are many! We make regular donations because we love them so much. Thank you Richardson rescue!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

All of the animals at the rescue are very well taken care of, sweet and affectionate. I feel at home when i am there. It is such a pleasure working with them.
