We adopted our new puppy from D&R Rescue, they were outstanding to work with. They were very friendly and even provided us with a great puppy starter kit. Our puppy was in great health and well socialized when we picked her up.

We thought Karen was a joy to work with. She was very knowledgable and prompt in meeting us for the adoption. Once we picked out our special puppy, Karen was incredibly quick to communicate with us to make sure we were a good fit. The rescue carefully screens its applicants to make sure they go only to excellent homes, which we really appreciated.

We are completely in love with our little one and feel we adopted the best pup possible, and we have D&R Rescue, Inc to thank for this. Kudos to Karen and her comrades for their commitment to companion animals and their fortunate new families.

I adopted a 9 week old puppy from D & R Rescue at the Westfield Petsmart. I had my puppy right away along with many helpful tips and a bag full of supplies. The fee was very reasonable and my puppy was healthy and friendly. Two months later, everything is going well.

On Halloween 2015 we lost our beloved Sammie. Sammie was my husband and my second dog. Her loss broke our hearts and we said no more pets..BUT...as days went by we continued to mourn her loss, but after awhile, we realized that something was missing in our lives. Slowly we started to watch the newspaper and got on line and looked at dog rescue sites not just in Indiana, but in states around us. We debated on what breed of dog we might like to have, but never really made a firm decision on that, but were kind of leaning toward a medium size dog. Well one night for some reason I came across D & R Rescue. Now needless to say I had no intention of adopting a Doberman or Rottweiler, but I looked anyway and there she was ...our Lily! She jumped right off of the screen and into my heart. I couldn't believe it...I had looked at hundreds of dogs at many, many sights, but I knew immediately that Lily was supposed to be my dog. I shot off the form to D and R and I got a response right away with the adoption form which we filled out and returned. The next day Karen and I emailed back and forth, both of us asking and answering questions. Finally when all of our paperwork checked out we made arrangements to meet and get our new baby. Karen went out of her way to meet us and bring our Lily. Lily is so beautiful and was very well cared for by her foster mom. She has been spayed, micro-chipped, had her first puppy shots, bathed and had a flea treatment. We have been blessed to have found Lily, and we are grateful to D and R Rescue for the excellent treatment and loving care which they give to each and every animal that they rescue. If you are looking to adopt a pet my husband and I would highly recommend D and R Rescue.

We recently adopted an adorable puppy with the help of D & R Rescue. They went way over and above to help match us with our new puppy. We were going out of the country on vacation and Karen worked with us to make the timing work. We love our little Patsy and can't possibly thank you all enough for bringing us together. I would recommend their service to anyone looking for a new family member. Thank you very much for everything you did for us.

Our neighbor lost his wife unexpectedly, a year ago in 2015, as well as their older family dog earlier in 2016 due to cancer. He needed a buddy desperately. D & R had rescued a litter of pups. Among them was a runt, Molly. Molly's personality was quiet, gentle and loving...perfect! D & R Rescue had Molly spayed and all of her puppy shots so she was ready for her new home. He was able to foster Molly for a few days to make sure the bond was good; it was awesome. Karen was patient, answering all questions, and checking in daily to monitor progress. Molly quickly stole his heart! Molly was perfect and quickly understood the potty routine. He allowed her to sleep in his bed, and she did her magic. He expressed it was the first night in a year he hadn't cried! Good girl! Thanks to Karen for working through this delicate situation. It's not how fast dogs can be placed but placing them in the most perfect home. Bow Wow to D & R Rescue!

We lost our precious pup, Grace, back in April. Our hearts were broken, and we still had a lot of love to give! Even the cat was sad!! We had talked about eventually getting a dog, but we were not actively searching. One of my friends posted a pic of a pup that she was fostering, and I knew that we had to meet him. In a matter of a couple of hours, we met a pup known as "Joe" and we were instantly in love with him!! We were fortunate enough to have our app approved and "Joe" became Tripp. He's spoiled rotten already! Karen is awesome. She has a passion for the pups that she rescues, and you can tell that she wants them all to have the best possible lives! Tripp has been taken care of from microchipping to neutering plus food, toys, a leash, and a collar as well as vet records. Karen made our adoption absolutely incredible! I couldn't imagine a more perfect fit for our family. If you are looking for a forever furry friend, I would highly suggest Karen and the D&R Rescue. You will get a dog that has been well taken care of with a great temperament! Thanks for making our family complete!!!

We were looking for a dog to adopt and looked everywhere and filled out application after application. We had found 2 dogs we liked but both were adopted the day before we got to go visit them. We found Luca (aka Janet) on Adopt-A-Pet.com. She is a bodercollie/jtr mix. She is very loving, playful and full of life. I had filled out adoption application and the next day Karen had emailed me telling we could pick up a puppy in Terra Haute, IN. We love her to pieces.
Thanks Karen!!!!

After getting a house we decided that we wanted to get a puppy for our son and our 8 year old Minpin. After finding the perfect puppy it seems we found the perfect rescue too! Karen was very professional and prompt in response through e-mail and text message. Our puppy was extremely healthy and socialized and we were given a great puppy package with him, treats, toys, collar, leash, and all the paperwork we needed. I wouldn't change the experience at all, and would very highly recommend D&R Rescue!

My boyfriend and I decided we were going to go to Petfinder and look for a new addition to our family. We found the perfect one, and contacted D & R Rescue Inc. We talked to Karen, and she was so professional, nice and realistic. She made our experience of adopting that much better. We met her to adopt Zoey, and made sure we had everything we needed to take care of our new addition. If we ever adopted again, which I'm sure we will, we would definitely go through D & R Rescue!
