Meet Jewel

Jewel was around 6 years old as of January, 2020 and has a loving temperament with people and has been around children with no issues. She has the typical shyness of an Aussie on first meeting but is very quiet about it and it doesn’t take to long for her to warm up. She is best with small dogs or dogs that don’t get all over her as she can take or leave another dog. She is more about exploring and getting a snack or some love. She cannot be around chickens or cats at all. She loves her outside time and will need a nice yard to spend some of her day in. Jewel walks very well on a leash and is crate/house trained. She is also a quiet girl. She is heartworm negative, spayed and current on shots, heartworm and flea prevention.

Meet Zeus

Zeus is around 7 years old as of January, 2020. This poor guy has spent his life tied with a cable outside. His family was moving and could not take him. This boy has a great temperament with people and lets us do anything in the world to him with no issue. He does like to come inside and chill for awhile but does like his outside time because that is what he has become accustomed to. With time, his love for the inside will grow as he realizes he is actually part of a family. This boy does walk on a leash and is good with children. He has not had a lot of socialization with other dogs and likes some but not others. He would do best in a home with no other dogs at first. House training should not be hard as he is accustomed to going outside already. Zeus did test positive for heartworms which is so totally no his fault. He is currently on the slow kill method for heartworms. You can google this to find out more information. This boy so needs a family to return the love that he is so ready to give. He should do well with any active family with a fenced area for him to run. Zeus is neutered and will be current on shots, heartworm and flea prevention.

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!
