Meet Lucy

Lucy is around 8 years old as of December, 2018 and weighs 32 pounds. She came to us because the family she had all her life moved and could not take her. This girl has a great personality with people and has been around children with no issues. She gets along fine with other dogs and runs with larger and smaller dogs with no issues. She was an only dog so, she can get a bit possessive of her food with other dogs not people. We just feed her alone and have no issues. Lucy is house and crate trained, likes to run after balls, leash trained, knows basic commands and knows what nite nite and go outside means. She is active enough for a nice walk but prefers to be a couch potato. She loves, loves to be around her people. Lucy is spayed, heartworm negative and current on shots, heartworm and flea prevention.

Meet Gru

We believe Gru is around 2 years old as of March, 2019 and weighs 56 pounds. He looks to be a tall English Bulldog and came to us with a terrible neck wound. He was fixed up at the Vet and is healing well and ready for his new home. This boy appears to be crate trained and possibly house trained. He walks on a leash and is a very good boy inside. He has been around smaller dogs here at the rescue with no issues and larger female dogs. He is not a big fan of male dogs though. However, his love for people knows no end and he loves attention. He is just a really cool kind of dog. He would be a great addition to an active family as he will need his exercise. Gru is neutered, heartworm negative and current on shots, heartworm and flea prevention.

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!
