  • We believe Bubba is about 5 years old as of July, 2015 and weighs about 65 pounds.  This is just a sweet, laid back guy that gets along great with other dogs.  He also loves people of all sizes and has a great temperament. This sweet boy's tail never stops wagging. He is not a big barker either.  He came from a high kill shelter and we are not sure about house training.  He walks well on a leash and

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 or call 803-628-5084, Monday thru Saturday, 9am to 4pm, for Questions.

If you are interested in adopting, the first step is to submit an adoption application. We check applications daily.
When you receive your approval email, you may then call to make an appointment to visit the pets in our care.

Visits are by APPOINTMENT ONLY!! Monday-Saturday from 10:30AM to 3:00 PM. In order to adopt from us, you will need an approved application. The application link is at the top of this page. Please call us at 803-684-6865 to arrange a visit, ask us a question or if you have a pet for rescue. We answer calls daily from 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday-Saturday. We are closed to the public on Sunday.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
