Registration is open for the 16th Canine & Kitty Golf Classic!

July 27, 2019 – Canine & Kitty Golf Classic

Registration is now open for the 16th Canine & Kitty Classic fundraiser! The event will be on July 27, 2019, 8:00 a.m. (shotgun start) and held at Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie.

Please join us for our biggest fundraiser — we’re donation funded and each dollar helps us save more dogs and cats. Since we are foster-based without a physical location, we do not have rental space, paid employees or other traditional expenses, so all profits go directly to animal care.

How can you help? Well, you can’t have a golf tournament without players! It’s a scramble format, and the entry fee of $125 includes breakfast and lunch, golf cart, green fees, prize holes and a participation gift.

The registration deadline is July 20, 2019.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available, including hole and cart sponsorships. Let everyone know that your organization supports animal rescue efforts in the community! For more information on sponsorships, email

Come join us in helping these deserving animals and enjoy a great day of golf, food, and prizes!

Look out Westminster! Jimmy is coming!

Jimmy, a Richardson Humane Society alum, is going to be competing at Westminster this year! An agility champion, Jimmy was chosen as one of only 15 mixed breed dogs being allowed to compete in Westminster’s agility competition on February 8. For 138 years, Westminster has not welcomed mixed breeds in competition but changed the rules this year.

Adrienne McLean, Jimmy’s mom and handler, also adopted Judy, another mixed breed, from RHS and they started doing agility to help Judy recover from hip surgery. They’ve stayed in touch with RHS over the years and attended our annual reunions when their schedule allowed.
