Hi, I am Helen. I am home mother with my husband and 2 boys. I have dog Chewy, dachshund mix and cat Tom, Domestic Short at home. They are so sweet, I love them so much. One is calm, likes to be hugged and combed. Another one is active, full of energy, likes run and fetch. I love their different character. I like to take chewy to walk in the beautiful natural environment. Keep eye on him, ensure he is not sniffing/eating bad things. Observe his poop color and shape when I clean up, that helps me understand his health condition. Talking and sometime singing quietly to him when we see something interesting. He likes that and always look at me softly and want a pet and huge. If you like your lovely one have a same safe and joyful walking, please let me know, and I definitely love to take care them, because they deserve to.

Dog Boarding in Richardson

While homeless dogs aren’t as abundant in Richardson, Texas, as they are in Dallas, residents of the suburb are no strangers to seeing wandering animals. These homeless animals need help and care until they can find new homes, and thankfully, there are shelters in the area that help. Two of these shelters are the Second Chance SPCA and Take Me Home Pet Rescue.

Second Chance SPCA is located in Plano, Texas, which is very close to Richardson. As a no-kill animal shelter, Second Chance SPCA is dedicated to giving every animal that comes through its doors a chance to find a new, loving family and a place to call home. Since opening in 2006, the organization has help rescue over 3,200 cats and dogs that would’ve otherwise been euthanized at other shelters in the DFW area and put them in new homes. Since Second Chance SPCA is a non-profit organization, it is mostly funded by donations and fundraisers, as well as adoption fees.

Take Me Home Pet Rescue in Richardson is a non-profit organization that helps animals find new homes while also reducing the homeless pet population in the area. Before pets are adopted from Take Me Home Pet Rescue, they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. The organization also completes home visits and requires references from all applicants. The organization runs mostly off of donations and fundraisers, as well as adoption fees, which allow staff to continue to provide care to more incoming cats and dogs.

If you are looking for a new pet in Richardson, Texas, consider contacting one of these two shelters.
