Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Richardson Humane Society is working to address the issues of cruelty to and overpopulation of animals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas through rescue, adoption and education.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Teach Me, Keep Me

The TMKM program stresses the training of newly adopted dogs. Once an adopter has taken the animal through training, we are sent a copy of the graduation certificate. We will then reimburse the adopter a portion of the training fee

Population(s) Served
Adults

We pull animals from area shelters that would not normally be adopted because of special needs (heartworms, broken limbs, etc.), treat them as necessary, and adopt them into forever homes

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.

Rescue of animals in need from shelters, strays-at-large and situations of neglect/cruelty. Rehabilitation to resolve health issues and social needs through medical care and training. Finding new adoptive homes for the pets in our program through established application, interview and home visit processes.

A network of volunteers, fosters and partner organizations (veterinarians, trainers and boarding facilities) work as a team to pull animals in need into the program, restore them to health where needed, provide training to address any social/behavioral issues and keep the pets safe, healthy and in a caring environment until a new home is found. RHS has established policies and procedures to match pets and applicants and to ensure the applicants meet our criteria and adhere to our guidelines.

Since RHS was formed in 2000, over 2800 dogs and cats have been successfully placed in caring permanent homes. Our goal is to continue with our mission statement: "saving lives, one pet at a time" and rescue as many animals in need as possible.
