I was seeking a companion pup for my dog Sophie. While searching Pet Finder I came across Cooper. I contacted D & R Rescue regarding the possibility of adopting him. The application and adoption process was professional but straightforward. Karen was professional and wonderful to work with. She is very experienced and gave me some great suggestions on introducing a new pup into our home. She answered all of my questions prior to adopting and after. She also suggested some great dog training facilities in my area. She has a true love and passion for rescuing and making sure the rescues end up in the right forever homes. Sophie and Cooper are great pals and I'm so very happy and grateful we were the right forever home for Cooper.

I recently adopted Pluto, now Baxter, and was amazed at the quality of service! First off Karen responded to me within the hour with what more information she needed from me to get approved and within a day I had been approved! The next day I went and met Baxter and fell in love! I was looking for an Emotional Service Dog and Karen saw that Baxter would fit the profile and he did! He by far exceeded my expectations and I love him more than anything in the world! If you are looking for high quality, professional, and helpful people to adopt a dog from this is the place! I couldn't have asked for a better dog and am so glad I was able to get the help and support I needed from Karen to find him! I had been looking painfully for around a month and was getting very discouraged when I found him. He was well worth the wait!

I lost my dog, Keebler, on Sept 19, 2013 and didn't think I would ever be able to love another dog, but after some time and a lot of sadness, my sister-n-law convinced me to look for another dog. In May 14, 2014 I saw a photo of Buddy on Petfinder while I was searching for a Chihuahua mix from D & R Rescue, Inc. I contacted Karen and she responded immediately. Since Buddy was still a baby we had to wait a little while to get him, but Karen was always very kind and stayed in contact with me and answered any and all questions. The day I picked Buddy up, was the first time I had seen him, aside from his photo, but he was adorable and so loving and sweet. I was surprised that the adoption fee covered Buddy being neutered, microchipped, treats, dog food, collar & leash and much more. Karen is one of the most caring people I have met. She cares about the animals and the person adopting them. Thank you so much Karen for allowing us to adopt Buddy and bringing the joy and laughter back into our family. He is spoiled rotten and is living a great life now that wouldn't be possible without people like Karen and others who rescue these pets. So thank you once again Karen and D & R Rescue, Inc for choosing us for Buddy. We love him so very much!

We received Jax from D&R rescue and are very happy with the whole process. Karen White was great and I would recommend her and the rescue for anyone seeking a pet.

I recently adopted a puppy! Our desire for a puppy started a while back and we knew that we wanted a dog that would be able to work on the farm with us. We had been around some Australian shepherds before and decided that that was the bread we wanted. I started searching. I ended up on adoptapet.com and found our sweet Holly. The same day I contacted Karen about adopting her, I received an email back and began the adoption process. I was able to go and get her shortly after. She came up to date with vaccines, neutered and was very clean. Karen set us up with dog food, a collar and many helpful guidelines to bringing home a puppy. I am so in love with our baby! I highly recommend adopting from Doberman and Rottwiler Rescue!

After searching for a dog on petfinder I found a little shih tzu that I was interested in. So I contacted D & R rescue. Karen notified me right away that the dog I was interested in had found another home but she suggested this other little dog named Scooby. She sent me pictures and described him as being playful and great with other dogs. Which is exactly what I was looking for being that I have two other dogs. After talking back and fourth for a couple days we were able to meet Scooby at a adoption event at Petsmart. I fell in love with him right on the spot. I was sure he would be a great fit for my family. So I adopted him! I kept in touch with Karen over the folloeong weeks to let her know how Scooby was doing with my other dogs. She answered any questions I had and educated me on many things! You can really tell that she is passionate about her job and finding forever homes for these dogs. I have recommended her to many friends who are looking to adopt. Thanks for helping me and my family find our newest fur baby ! We love him so much!

I adopted a cat from Karen at D&R Rescue and am very glad I got it there. Karen is very thorough - the welfare of the animal going forward and it's fit in the family is as important to her as getting an animal placed.

We were looking for a friend for our Maltipoo, Max, and decided we would prefer to adopt a rescue dog. I began searching on line, and we saw Tippers photo, and were interested. I contacted Karen, who sent an application to us to fill out. After we were approved, she answered all of our questions honestly and quickly. (She wasn't sure if Tipper would play with Max). After we decided to bring Tipper home, we had a few issues that Karen helped us to resolve with her knowledgeable suggestions. We were so impressed with the entire process. We are very happy with our decision to adopt, and Tipper has been a wonderful addition to our family!!

My mother-in-law moved in with us about 2 weeks after our cairn terrier succumbed to cancer (almost 2 years ago). This was a tough adjustment for the entire family and my husband seemed to have the most difficult time. It was a difficult decision to get another dog, but I felt strongly that it would be good for the family. I searched for about 6 months to find another cairn who was mild-mannered and calm and 2-5 years of age (no puppy). When I saw Indy (formerly Trent), I knew he fit the description to a "T". I was extremely nervous because I did not know anything about D&R Rescue and I had heard about bad rescues. I had a great deal of skepticism and proceeded with caution. I had many questions for Karen and Indy's foster mom and they answered every email and request. When I met Karen to formalize the adoption, I knew I was in good hands. She went over Indy's information very carefully and gave me such good advice. Additionally, I needed to contact Karen regarding something after the adoption and she responded with concern to that as well. I feel very comfortable recommending D&R Rescue to anyone looking to adopt from them - they truly have the pet's best interest at heart.

My 87 year old mother had lost her rescued mini-pin. We looked on multiple sites and found this group had one she was interested in. After contacting D & R Rescue, Karen got back with me the same day. The dog my mother was interested in was spoken for but I told Karen my mom's story and her wish list for a new dog and Karen told me of one she thought they would have within the week. Once the application was confirmed, we were invited to see the dog. Karen had not only one but 2 really cute dogs for my mother to choose from. Karen was very knowledgeable about the dogs, the quirks of the breeds she had and was really excited to be helping out both the dogs and my mom. I have nothing praise for the work this group does. The dog Karen found for my mom is a perfect fit and I will suggest this group to anyone looking for a dog,
