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,
We had decided to get a rescue dog instead of a puppy. I went on line for several weeks and seen Frankie at D & R rescue. Karen made the process go smoothly for me. Frankie was everything she said he was. Sweet, well behaved and housebroken. She met me at my convience with a bag of goodies to take home. He was groomed, vet checked, next months trifexis and a new collar and leash. We thank you so much for all your help! Frances and Jerry
After working from home for over a year, our family finally decided to take on some furry members. We decided that we would get two puppies, so they would have someone to play with and each child could be responsible for their own dog. We found Buddy first, through a local woman who had a litter. Then the search was on for puppy #2. We were searching petfinder daily but running into roadblocks... We kept being turned down for applications we put out... By 4 different local facilities. We were finally told that our other, unaltered 8 week old puppy was to blame. And then we found Cooper (originally named Freedom). I messaged Karen personally about Cooper, explained our desire to have two puppies, and she totally agreed with me.... Dogs need playmates! Karen always responded promptly to my messages and answered all of the questions I had. She was couteous professional and friendly. The kicker..Cooper was 3 hours away, and in a different state! Karen worked with me to find a time for me to be able to get to Cooper. Their fee was minimal in comparison to the fees that I was being told from the local organizations. Cooper came neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, with a collar, leash, toys, brush and a bag of food!!! Despite this rescue being such a long distance away, you can bet that anytime I hear of someone looking for a dog, or if we want another dog in the future, we will be contacting them!!!

This fall my husband and I got married and we decided that it was time to expand our family. Terry my husband had been looking at puppy's so I started searching on line at puppies around us and found d and r rescue and found our buddy on her site. He is a great addition to our family and gets along great with our other dog and my kitten he is everything she said he would be and is a really great dog
We decided to take in a shelter dog. We looked and looked for the perfect dog. Then we found Mandy at Rotsaver. she has turned out to be the perfect pet I have two other dogs and several Grandchildren. Karen has been so helpful and willing to work with us on everything we have needed. We are thankful for you Karen and the work you do to save the pets. Cathy Brock
We were searching the perfect additional to our family! We had searched shelters, local rescues and petfinder. Finally we came across Ocoee (former "Barney"), a 3 month old puggle. I emailed Karen with D&R Rescue back and forth for a couple days. We then we to see her and she introduced us to three different puppies available for adoption. Karen was so helpful and honest about each dog! She told us what things we would need to work on with the puggle we were interested in, and we were definitely up for the challenge of helping him to become the best family dog he could be! Ocoee has been with us for a month and is making amazing strives to being a perfect family dog! He loves his 3 little human brothers and his older dog brother (who tolerates him for the most part ;), and he loves to chase his kitty sister and brother! He is a wonderful additions to our family! Karen even emailed us a few days after we brought him home to check up and make sure everyone was settling in okay :) Thank you so much to Karen and D&R Rescue Inc for all their help and helping us find the perfect puppy for us!
Our family of seven (five children between the ages of 13 and 2) had decided that we were ready to include a small dog in our family. I had asked several different rescues about small dogs, but always received a negative response. Finally, I saw two small dogs on petfinders that were both from D and R rescue. I emailed with basic info about our family (including the fact that four of our five children are rambunctious boys) and asked if either of the two dogs would likely be able to thrive in our household. Surprisingly, Karen responded that she thought one of them might be up for the challenge. :) Karen placed our Ollie in a busy, active foster home for the weekend to see how he would do. The foster family reported that he adored the kids. The next day, our family met Ollie and brought him home with us. Karen was right that Ollie would do well with kids. We can always find him in the room with the most kids, he loves playing with them, and is unfazed by their (at times) wild behavior. We really enjoy having Ollie in our family, and are so thankful that Karen was willing to allow him into our home. We were hoping for a dog who would really enjoy the kids, not just tolerate them, and because of D and R rescue, we finally found the perfect dog for our family!
My wife and I were looking for a new member of the family and we came across this organization. The level of commitment and communication of the staff that we experienced was excellent. There were prompt responses to questions, a willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty and a general respect and love of dogs. We are so happy with the dog that we received from D&R Rescue. They presented us with a beautifully adjusted and well taken care of dog. I would highly recommend this group for adoption.

We are a dog loving family. I lost my beloved miniature schnauzer, Sir Charles Barkley, to rectal cancer after twelve years of faithful companionship. I have been looking for another silver schnauzer for months when I found Wes on the Rescue Me site that D&R uses for potential homes for dogs. I knew the minute that I saw him that he was the one!
He has captured everyone’s heart just like I knew he would. First two nights he slept with his head on my shoulder. He is one step behind me everywhere I go. Each day he relaxes a little more. Our other schnauzer, Briana, smelled him all over when he came in the door and by the next day she was curled up beside him taking a nap.
We went to church this morning and were surprised when he came bouncing out the doggy door to greet us. He learns new things right away. Smart Boy! Thanks for allowing us to have him..
My boyfriend and I were looking for a new addition for our "family". After searching for 8 months we finally found him! We adopted him through Karen with D&R rescue and she was so helpful. She responded to emails within minutes and was able to answer all questions. It was wonderful meeting Karen because she truly is an animal lover. Our puppy is doing great and loving his new home. Thank you D&R rescue for connecting us with our little guy. We couldn't be happier!!!
