Thank you Martha. We lost our sweet boy May 4, 2017. His passing affecting me so much as I worked from home and he went everywhere I went with me. He was such a sweet small boy and brought us so much joy. Here’s one of his last pictures with his Easter basket.

Blessing and we love the work your org continues doing and will support whenever we can!

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.
