York Animal Rescue Receives Emergency Grant After Fire
Richardson Rescue in York, S.C. will receive an emergency grant of $3,000 from The Humane Society of the United States. The grant will help the organization recover from a fire that destroyed several buildings on the organization’s property on Feb. 18. Tragically, 16 dogs perished in the fire.
According to Janet Richardson, Richardson Rescue spokesperson, community support following the fire has been tremendous, with adoptive families, local businesses and animal lovers providing all types of logistical support, manpower and supply donations.
In order to continue operations, including adoption of the rescue’s current animal residents, the organization is now focused on rebuilding their office and replacing needed supplies.
Donations to help aid recovery can be made through the rescue’s website, richardsonrescue.org. For other questions, contact Janet Richardson at (803)-684-6865.
