Meet Daisy Lynn

Daisy Lynn is about 1 1/2 years old as of July, 2019 and what a great girl! This gal has an awesome temperament with people and other dogs. She was around cats in her previous home with no issues either. She runs around the rescue with large and small dogs and we have not had one issue. She is crate, house and leash trained. She knows the commands sit and lay and is an obedient, attentive girl. Daisy is your typical Pit in that she loves to be around people and loves to meet new people. She should do great with any type of active family. We can’t say enough what great attitude this girl has about everything. She is heartworm negative and will be current on all medical (spay, shots, deworm, microchip, heartworm and flea prevention).

Meet Amelia

We believe Amelia is around 1 year old and weighs around 30 pounds. This girl was abandoned on the road, very pregnant, and wandered in to a nice gentleman’s yard who brought her to us after her puppies were of age. She was a great mom and, although shy at first, has the most loving temperament and just loves to see us in the morning. She gets along great with other dogs too and we have not seen her around cats. We have started crate training here at the rescue and she is doing well. She is also a quiet kind of girl that loves to follow us around here at the rescue. We think she would do well with most any kind of active family. Amelia is heartworm negative and will be current on all medical (spay, shots, deworm, heartworm and flea prevention).

Richardson Rescue Seniors for Seniors Program

Our senior dogs are perfect companions for senior humans. 

They are mellow and well socialized and just want love and gentle care from their special someone.

Our senior for seniors program provides a way for seniors (65 or older) to bring a senior (6 years or older) furry, loving companion into their lives. Please submit our application and, if you are 65 or older, we will be in touch by email to let you know if you qualify for our program. We can then schedule and appointment for a visit.

About Us

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.

All in all, with thousands of animals saved off the streets and cared for every year, we hope to encourage much more pet adoptions to happen!
