Welcome to Richardson Rescue
Richardson Rescue, located in York, SC, is a non-profit animal adoption agency dedicated to preserving the sanctity of animal life. While trying to find a forever home for every pet that comes to us, we strive to give owners a better education on pet care, prevent pet neglect/abuse and provide a low cost spay/neuter program for those that can't afford it. Richardson Animal Rescue is a 501C3, non profit, publicly funded rescue.
What does 501C3 mean?
501c3 means that we are funded by the public. ALL donations are tax deductible. We get NO STATE OR FEDERAL FUNDING !! How many we can save is up to you!!!
Many people are appalled that so many animals are euthanized daily at Animal Control. Meanwhile, they do nothing to support the rescues that save these pets. We are the ones saving them and we get no Federal Funding, and the competition for grants makes them almost impossible to get. Daily, we receive upwards of 50 calls with pets needing rescue. We have over a 100 pets in our care at any given time, and we cannot continue to save the lives we do without donations. We have been saving lives, and impacting the lives of homeless pets in our community for 15 years now and have adopted over 5500 pets to great homes. These are pets that would not have had a happy ending without us. We can only continue to do this with your support.
If you see a pet you are interested in, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 803-628-5084, Monday thru Saturday, 9am to 4pm, for Questions.
