Who We Are

The purpose of Richardson AnimaLuv is to give every animal at the shelter a second chance at life.

Richardson Animaluv is a 501(C)3 Organization.

Founded in 2004 by Richardson resident Peggy Thorburn, Richardson AnimaLuv provides an avenue for individuals and corporations to make donations and volunteer efforts benefiting the City of Richardson Animal Shelter. As a 100% nonprofit organization, all donations are considered tax deductible. Regardless of the amount of a donation, Richardson AnimaLuv thanks you for your support in our quest to assist in covering special projects and items needed for the animal shelter in the City of Richardson.

Projects AnimaLuv are involved in with the shelter include medical expense assistance, adoption promotions, low cost microchipping of animals, spaying and vaccinations, foster assistance, and petting zoo assistance. Our belief is a healthy animal is an adoptable animal; therefore, we are making every effort we can to assist the animal shelter to provide the public with a healthy, vaccinated animal.

Richardson AnimaLuv is only able to provide these services with the help of our sponsors and support from the general public. By sponsoring several fundraisers each year such as Citywide Pet Day, Splash Day for Dogs, Wine and Dine with your Canine, Spring Fling Pet Pawrade at Huffhines Park, Rabies Clinic and Adopt-a-thon, and the Dog Wash, we are able to continue aiding and assisting with special projects at the shelter.

Additionally with foundation grants received, we have assisted with the funding of the new cat room addition at the shelter, additional cat cages as well as two outside benches for potential families to get to know their future pet.
