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 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.

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.

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.

WE adopted a beautiful lab mix a few weeks ago. She was well cared for and the rescue was friendly yet thorough during the adoption process. We love our pup and can't imagine our home without her! We are so graceful to Richardson Rescue!

Having been both volunteer and adopter for a number of years now, I've seen the many facets of fine care, both medical and emotional, given to homeless or unwanted "friends" that have rightfully given Richardson Rescue the five stars above. Our latest addition at home, Dotty, is an aged tiny Beagle, who was found wandering, in a parking lot in Rock Hill. She has a slight limp, and is terrified by unexpected noises. Yet when outside (or even inside!), should she hear a shot in the woods ring out, sharp barks from a once noble little hunting dog come alive once more. We've found that her greatest desire in life is simply to have a safe, quiet little space to lay down in. There are precious few of those in parking lots. Dotty is only one example of the many stories of a loving second chance provided at Richardson Rescue. Well done and God Bless!!
