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.

It says that Richardson Rescue is A Happy Place. That statement could not be more true, which is why we continue to donate to them. Each and every time we visit, the pets are running and playing, interacting with visitors, and are genuinely happy. We love coming to visit and have been loyal supporters of the rescue for many years, because of the work they do. This Rescue operates on a shoe string budget and still manages to make magic happen. We have seen pets come in that were terrified, left on the side of the road, abandoned and lonely and with the care and compassion the Staff has, be adopted out as healthy, happy, well socialized family pets. The Staff is truly amazing!!

We would encourage everyone to support Richardson Rescue's excellent work by donating. They work very hard and need donations. We will always be there to help them and hope you will too!! GREAT JOB!!!
