Meet Shane

Shane (also affectionately known as Goofy) was born on 11/15/2017 and weighs around 55 pounds. Shane is a playful and very loving guy. He is very social with people and is just a love bug and will come stand behind or beside you as close as he can possibly get for a cuddle. He does know how to sit, is doing well with leash walking. Shane is an active boy that will need an active family preferably with room for him to run. Shane does not like another dog around his food, toys and treats and may be better as an only dog at first. If those three things are not around, he will play with a dog. He would do awesome with an active family as he loves to play ball and will until you stop. He also loves to just carry his tennis ball around and you can get him to do anything if you have one in your hand. LOL. He is current on all medical (neuter, shots, heartworm and flea prevention).

Meet Boomer

We believe Boomer is around 5 years old and this boy has an awesome temperament. He is great with everyone he meets and has no problems with other dogs large or small. When he is inside, he loves to find a dog bed to relax in and watch everything going on. We are not sure about house training but larger dogs are not usually hard to train. He is an active boy that will need a home with space for him to run as he is a working boy and likes his outside time. Boomer is heartworm negative, neutered and current on shots, 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!
