Reviews for Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Inc.
Best experience on the adoption. Payin the $300. was a bit high for me however after all the care our puppy received after we brought her home was amazing. If you add up all the vaccinations you get all the visits not to mention the microchip, spayed. You add everything up and $300 is nothing. Please visit Big Dog rescue. You'll be glad you did.
My husband and I adopted two puppies back in October 2015 (Layla and Biscotti- now Winnie and Walter). The process went smooth and the people who work there were all so helpful and amazing. Our pups are 6 1/2 months old now and they are awesome! We are so happy with our decision to support and adopt from BDRR! Their love and support of these animals is incredible!

Our experience with BDRR was great, we adopted our dog 4 months ago when they were having a event at petco. We're so happy we walked in to petco that day, Blu is such an amazing dog just like all the other doggys that need homes from BDRR! Other than them not knowing too much info on blu's behavior, like if he would be okay with cats (he was, which was fantastic), they made the whole process easy; we got to take him home right then and there and everyone was super friendly! They really care about the dogs there and I look forward to start volunteering there soon and adopting another dog in the future!!
My boyfriend and I had been wanting to adopt a dog together for some time. After months of research though, we just couldn't find quite the right dog or rescue for us. I happened upon BDRR by chance, and after seeing some adult dogs that looked promising, we made the 3 hour drive over. Even during the process of the move to their new location, everything was incredibly organized! The dogs had so much space to run and play and looked so happy, which was surprising for rescue dogs who can sometimes look sad and lonely! They had so much information and sat down with us to be sure we could find the perfect dog for us.
We didn't find any that really seemed interested in us/ones that would be cat friendly, but were told that there was one puppy left from one of the dog's litters. Olympia immediately locked eyes with my boyfriend and snuggled in his arms, covering his face in kisses. Before we knew it, we realized we were taking a puppy home!
I absolutely love BDRR; the volunteers are so kind and want to make sure you take home the perfect dog for you and your family. They aren't focused on making a quick buck; they are focused on providing forever homes to their resident dogs, and being sure they are happy and lives even while in the shelter. Thank you for helping us find our beautiful girl Midna!!!
We adopt rescues, but truth be told, they rescue us. We adopted our latest little Chi "Sprout".
We are so in love with him we can't imagine our lives without him. His sissy "Zena" is so glad to have a friend again.
Big Dog Ranch interviewed us and we had a visit with Zena at the ranch before we were allowed to officially adopt him. I am so proud of the work they do.
I am also relieved they do more than just hand out dogs to whomever passes their doors.
The volunteers and staff really DO love animals and care about each one that comes to them.
Thank you from our combined hearts.
We adopted Jack last weekend, and he is so happy! Feels good to give a dog a living home after he's been through so much!!!!
Was looking for a perfect pup for our family and bdrr allowed us to find her. We couldn't be happier with our baby

I rescued a dog from Big Dog Ranch Rescue after i lost my dog to lymphoma. When i arrived at the ranch, i asked the adoption coordinator which dog was the sweetest small dog they had and she took me right to *Joseph*. I fell in love instantly. He had been abandoned in a home and when Big Dog Ranch got the call about him, they didn't hesitate to take him and a team of volunteers went right over and rescued him. He had been with Big Dog Ranch Rescue about 3 days when i saw him and just knew that he would help feel the huge hole in my heart after losing my other dog. His name is now Squish. They do a great job, take really good care of their dogs and really help to make sure that people are matched with the right dog.
Hello! My name is Mallory and I adopted Arya (previously known as Rosa) the lab/beagle mix in May of 2014. When I arrived at Big Dog Ranch Rescue, I was very pleased with their cleanliness and size of the facility. I had a member help me right away and they asked me what kind of dog I was looking for. They had plenty of rescue babies for me to choose from and I knew Arya was meant to be mine the moment I saw her! The adoption process was easy, but they made a couple of home visits just to make sure I was an appropriate fit. Arya and I now live in Gainesville and we love to hike with eachother on the weekends! Who said soul mates had to be human? My dog is my soul mate and I know she loves me just as much as I love her. She's definitely a mama's girl! Thank you BDRR!
My best friend, Luke, of 13 years suddenly passed without warning. My daughter had gone to BDRR through her college FAU to volunteer and told me about the Ranch. I decided to bring them some of Luke 's things that other dogs might like and need and decided this was the organization we would come to when it was time to adopt again. Never did I realize that it would be sooner than later was time to adopt another dog. The staff was so nice and spent so much time with us playing with various dogs. We decided to adopt the black weimaraner lab retriever that was created in the lobby. It was an immediate attraction to our whole family. Even though she, Muffin, was ill with heartworms and hookworms we knew she was the dog for us. BDRR was treating her for all her problems but allowed us to take her home. We were to bring her back in a month for more treatment at no cost to us. Everything we were told about Muffin was a fact her training, her medical meds, etc was told you us up front so there would be no surprises. This facility is the best thing around and I am so happy we went to BDRR to adopt. I only wish all the dogs could get a forever home. I am anxious to see their new facility that should be ready at the end of the summer vintage the meantime I encourage you to go to BDRR and adopt or at least foster a dog. BDRR makes it such a rewarding experience for the whole family including the dogs.
Please help them. Find homes for all their residents.
