Richardson Humane Society was chartered as a 501(c)3 Non Profit Texas corporation in 2000. We are an all volunteer group and have grown to more than 100 volunteers. At this writing (03/2017) we have re-homed over 2200 homeless pets.
The purpose of this society is to rescue and re-home adoptable pets, educate our community regarding the prevention of cruelty to animals, the promotion of animal population control through advocation of spay/neuter programs, and the extension of humane education.
It is the policy of the society to provide humane care and treatment for animals needing protection in the area served by the society; to seek to return lost animals to their owners; to seek suitable homes for animals without owners; to promote spay/neuter in the community; to encourage a network of foster homes for adoptable animals, to aid in encouraging adequate conditions in our city shelter and to educate this community in living with their pet and being responsible pet owners, i.e.-education on health, training and behavioral care, as well as ways to recognize abuse, neglect or cruelty. In its care and disposition of animals, the society shall maintain the highest level of care and integrity in placement, care and education.
We will be active in our community educating the children in our schools, bringing the community together with fundraisers and pet friendly events and ensuring each pet owner has all the resources/information necessary to care for their pet.
