The Treasured Ten – Fundraiser

Rose, a hound mix, had 9 puppies about 8 weeks ago and they’re as cute as buttons! However, an animal shelter is no place for a mom and pups, so Richardson Humane Society has been working to get all 9 puppies and momma Rose out of the shelter and into foster homes, and eventually forever homes. Since RHS is an all-volunteer, donation-run organization, we need some help covering the vet bills for these little squirts. Each one will be fully vetted, with 3 rounds of puppy shots, deworming, spay/neuter and microchipping prior to being ready for adoption.

We’ve started a Razoo fundraising campaign to help with the costs of this family of cuties:

Any help you can give us is greatly appreciated!  And by the way, Momma Rose still needs a foster home; do you have room for this great girl?

Dogs & Drafts 11/5/2016


We’ve decided to combine two of our most favorite things – dogs and craft beer – into an event to help us do some good: provide food, shelter and vet care for the wonderful dogs and cats in our care.

For a mere $20, you’ll get three (3) hand crafted beers from our friend at Four Bullets Brewery, as well as one of their logoed glasses. We’ll have some food for your belly and some music for your soul, and some dogs that need lovin’, so please come out, have some fun and do some good. Woof.

Where:  Four Bullets Brewery, 640 N. Interurban, Richardson TX

When:  Saturday, November 5, 2016, 7 – 10pm

RHS Shoe Drive Fundraiser!!

Help Support RHS Shoe Drive!!

We have some exciting news! We will be conducting a shoe drive from now through May 14th to help raise funds for the Richardson Humane Society. RHS will earn funds based on the number of pairs of shoes collected. We have several dogs undergoing heart worm treatment at the moment, so the funds would certainly be appreciated.

An organization called Funds2Org will pay us .40 cents a pound for shoes collected. All donated shoes will be collected by Funds2Orgs and sent off to developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families.

We are excited about our shoe drive and know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to help those less fortunate. By donating shoes to Richardson Humane Society, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives!!

We will have drop off boxes at adoption events starting in March!  If you’re on social media, please help us by spreading the word; the more shoes we collect, the more pets we can save!shoes
