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.

Iv been volunteering with Richardson Rescue for a few months now. Everyone is very loving, kind hearted and want the best for all of the animals there. 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.

I had the pleasure of working with Richardson Rescue for two days and I absolutely love them. They are the nicest people doing a business for a great cause. I highly recommend them. All their animals are taken care of extremely well. They have the sweetest animals. They make sure their animals will go to a great home. I will be volunteering again. Adopting from here promises a great animal. They have some incredible rescue stories and do what is best for all the animals. They truly care about these animals and that is what makes it so great to adopt from them because you know they are loved and well cared for. If you want to adopt a great animal and help this cause Richardson Rescue is a great place to go. They are doing amazing things for these animals.

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!

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!!!

We have adopted twice from Richardson Rescue, and we have three rescues, (dogs) total. Richardson is one of the best, certainly most caring pet rescue groups we've ever dealt with. They know and love their animals, taking care to make the perfect match for the animal and the adopter. They do not take the process lightly, wanting each and every adoption to be a success. When on the rare occasion that it is not, they take back the animal, loving and caring for it until the right person does come along. We will always support Richardson Rescue and our future adoptions will come from them!

We have adopted two dogs from Richardson Rescue and they are the absolute best! Janet is such a devoted, skilled and compassionate animal advocate. Her organization is run with 100% attention to her animals ... insuring their safety, cleanliness & above all, making sure when they are adopted they are all placed in forever, loving homes. She is truly an angel and if we had more rescue organizations of the high caliber & standards shown by Richardson Rescue, we would be well on our way to stopping the misery that homeless pets endure.

I know the founder of this rescue well and know first hand what a wonderful job they do. they have also helped me out on several occasions with dogs I have rescued and I needed a place for them to go. Janet is ALWAYS there for the animals.

I got my fur baby through these wonderful people a year ago. When they were at pet smart in rock hill, and to this day when ever I go to pet smart with my little guy he runs over to where they set up first thing in hopes of seeing the wonderful staff and volunteers of Richardson Rescue. So if that's not an endorsement from someone who knows then I'm not sure what is they really love respect and care for all their rescues like they were family.

I came to Richardson Rescue almost a year ago with a broken heart. I had just lost my very best friend, my pitbull Reese. My home and heart seemed empty without her in them, and I won't lie, they still do as she was irreplaceable. But, the staff at Richardson made me feel very welcome and really understood what I was going through! With Reese being my first rescue, I felt that the only way to honor her appropriately was to adopt another dog and give that dog the same loving home that I had given Reese! I actually ended up falling in love with and adopting 2 sweet boys from Richardson, and they are my whole world!! Anyone who has ever loved a dog knows how special that bond is, and I have Richardson Rescue to thank for my sweet babies that are cuddling with me right now!!
