PetSmart Adoption Days

We would like to send out a huge thank you to our volunteer Ceil and her wonderful husband for volunteering their time to repaint our cat room at PetSmart. They arranged for the paint and tools to be donated, painted and added little finishing touches to help organize our supplies. Ceil also helps out regularly with out kitties on location at PetSmart along with Tracy and Bridgette. We love all of you girls and keep up the great work.

A thank you also goes out to Sherwin Williams in Rock Hill, SC and to their manager Jeremy. They generously donated the paint, roller brushes and pan to make this happen. This kind group of people can be contacted at 803-366-9749 or visit them at 1240 Cherry Rd, Rock Hill, SC 29732.

We cannot say enough how much we appreciate the time and effort our volunteers put into helping the orphans here at Richardson Rescue. We could not do this without each and every one of you.

We miss and love you Hanna. "We Hope You Dance"
