Review for Richardson Rescue, York, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We adopted our sweet Blondie puppy from Richardson five years ago. Since then we've gone and volunteered a number of times. In all of these interactions, we've been very impressed.

When we first went to look to adopt our dog, I was pleased by how clean everything was. Dogs, of course, can get dirty or use the bathroom. But things were cleaned up in a timely manner that kept the pens and the open yard from looking dirty or smelling.

All of the workers seem to genuinely care about the animals. They know them by name and talk to them like little kids. They take their care seriously and work hard keeping pets happy and cared for as well as handling medical problems from animals brought in to them.

If you're looking to adopt a dog, I can highly recommend Richardson!

Review for Richardson Rescue, York, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Last Christmas we decided to get a dog for our family. Although we looked around at people selling pets or giving away puppies, we really wanted to adopt. So we started putting out feelers for a pet adoption agency. I submitted applications to several, but the process seemed to take forever! There was always a long wait between submitting my information and actually being approved to come look at a pet.

I found Richardson Rescue online, and I called for more information. As soon as I submitted an application, I heard back that very afternoon, and we were invited to come an look at dogs the next day. I know they were thorough in checking because they called our current veterinarian, and they asked relevant questions. But they were also interested in getting us out and actually picking a pet quickly.

We were very impressed at how well the staff seemed to treat the animals and how well they knew each one. When we found our sweet girl, it was obvious that she loved them and that they had taken good care of her.

Since our adoption, we've gone to volunteer a few times. I'm impressed by how well they keep the animals pens cleaned and keep the animals clean and fed and watered. I'm especially impressed by how they seek to learn each animal's needs and help them become more adoptable by working with them. Even though they are extremely busy, they take the time to know what every animal's temperament is and what they need.

I know we've been blessed with a sweet, sweet dog that is the perfect fit for our family. And much of the credit for that goes to Richardson- for the care they took of her before we got her. I'm very thankful!
