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.

I just brought home two incredibly healthy puppies adopted from Richardson Rescue in York, SC. The place is run by incredibly dedicated people and it shows in the happy faces of the animals in their care. It was a heart warming experience to visit their kennel. The world needs more people like them. A Jones - Ft. Lauderdale, FL 4-16-2012

We adopted an adorable puppy from the rescue. He was social, healthy and full of life due to the care he received from Richardsons. We were told he and his litter mates were abandoned in the woods prior to being rescued. Tater (our puppy) seems to have received the love, care and attention to overcome this rough start. We will recommend all our Friends and family to adopt from Richardsons.

I saw a wonderful puppy on their website and called to find out about him. The employees were very patient with me throughout my numerous phone calls. We went to check him out and again, they were very patient with me. They require you fill out an application with a number of questions wanting info about the living conditions that the pet will be living in, your experience with previous and current pets, vet info that the pet will use, etc., to get an idea about the owner and the environment that the pet will be living in. Everyone was extremely nice and attentive; it is clear that their top priority is for the well being of their pets. They do a wonderful job and are a great service to the area. As for our new puppy: he is doing great and everyone just loves him.

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!

We adopted a member of the family from Richardson rescue. They seem to take great care of there animals and we had a pleasant experience and the process was easy in adopting our boy. I have recommended them to a few others.

I had recently lost my dog of 11 years and was looking for a new companion. I went online and found Richardson Rescue. I was impressed with the selection of dogs and all the personal information provided with each one. After my application was approved, I made an appointment to go see the facility and choose my new best friend. It was great to see that the dogs are able to run around and not simply locked in kennels. All of the staff was very friendly and willing to help. The dogs seemed quite happy and well cared for. The dog I chose was very friendly and "people oriented." She has turned out to be a most lovable companion. She came with all of her shots and Richardson Recue microchipped her for me. I would highly recommend Richardson Rescue to anyone looking for a new best friend.l

We can not express how much we LOVE our little Sophie, a schnauzer mix, we adopted in February 2011. At the time we were new to being "dog" parents and the kind folks at Richardson Rescue were very helpful. They allowed us time to play and visit with a couple of the dogs to ensure that both the puppy and the family were a good fit. We thank you for this extra time, as we could not have selected a better pet to bring into our home.

She has brought so much joy to our lives and makes us laugh every day. She is well behaved and was easy to potty train. (Although we have to admit that she is a little spoiled!!) She loves to fetch and play and has learned several tricks which she enjoys showing off when company visits.

We are VERY grateful to Richardson Rescue and thank you for your hard work. Again thank you for everything.
