Reviews for D & R Rescue Inc
As we all know, losing a pet can be very difficult, especially when you're a senior like myself. After losing my pet dog to a serious illness 5 months ago, I thought I could call it quits with having dogs at my age. The plans to give up having a dog in my life again just shattered my heart, and soon I realized I couldn't let that happen.
After changing my mind I became serious about bringing a new dog into my life, but I had no idea where to begin looking for that perfect dog just for me. My first visit was on the internet at Adopt A Pet. In about 15 minutes of randomly looking at all the dogs, I found a picture of the sweetest looking little Rat Terrier named Tipper being cared for by D&R Rescue. Right away I contacted Karen to explain my needs for finding the perfect match for me. She was so understanding and gave me information about Tipper that helped me so much. I stopped thinking about being a senior and just get on with life with a brand new little friend who needed a home as much as I needed him.
After the application for adoption was approved, Karen made the meeting time speedy and painless. Not only was Tipper the perfect match for me, he was more wonderful than I could have imagined. Additionally, Karen had already had him current with shots, grooming, teeth cleaning, and even micro chipped with a lifetime enrollment with Home Again. We went home with toys, collar, leash and a packet of great information on how to best take care of Tipper. I was very impressed with Karen's dedication and hard work. She made my senior blues go away, and brought happiness into not only my life, but Tipper's life too. I'm forever grateful for having this experience. Tipper actually makes me feel young again. I would most defiantly recommend D&R Rescue. You won't be sorry you did!!!
We adopted a beagle puppy named Watson (now named Jackson) from this rescue. The entire process was smooth and the volunteers were very helpful in the adoption process. Jackson is settling into his new home and is quickly learning the ropes. Our 6 month old son is just in love with Jackson and they are destined to be best friends. Thanks again.
D & R far exceeded our expectations with our pup. She was well taken care of, spayed, up-to-date shots and came with all the essentials to get started. There process was simple and they worked well with us. Please help them if you can.

Great organization! They make sure the pets get the best possible homes! They are Very good about answering your questions and emails quickly! Karen was very friendly and informative. Love our new boy, Ollie!
Karen was very easy to work with and truly love her dogs and is passionate about what she does. Our newest "family" member, Luna, came from her and is a joy.
My Fiance and I found our new puppy online from this Rescue. Karen was awesome with communication, explaining everything to us about the adoption, and everything else we had questions about. Our puppy is very well behaved and we owe it to them for that.
After losing my longtime miniature schnauzer I decided to try to find a rescue dog to adopt. I didn't have much hope that I would find a miniature schnauzer at a shelter but D & R Rescue came through with exactly what turned out to be a perfect pet for me. She's a lap dog but likes to take walks. And I need the exercise.
Her name is Lucy and she's 2 years old and the most loving and well behaved dog...I think she's perfect. D & R had taken care of all shots, micro chipped, spayed, etc. and Lucy even came with collar, leash, food and even toys! Karen at D & R was most helpful about arrangements for meeting and then picking up Lucy. I give D & R my highest recomendation!
We lost our beloved rescue dog in February of this year after 10 amazing years and thought we may never get another dog. In June, I started looking on Petfinder and fell in love with a dog being fostered through D & R Rescue in Paris, IL. I left for our family vacation and carried her photo with me the entire time. When we returned home I contacted the rescue and found out that she was still available! I contacted the rescue and filled out an application. Karen was so easy to work with, has a huge heart and is a dedicated resource for helping animals find their forever homes. I drove from Iowa to Indiana to pick her up. I knew she was the right choice the moment I saw her at the local Petsmart store. She has now been part of our family for a week and she fits right in. She is the sweetest dog ever! If you are interested in adopting a pet, please consider adopting from this rescue organization. They will go the extra mile to make sure you find the right pet!
I had been combing the internet for a new puppy after I tragically lost my 12 year old beagle. I found the new members of my family at D and R Rescue. I filled out the application and was soon told I could have the spaniel/border collie mix pups I asked for as soon as the vet deemed them old enough to be neutered. It was hard to wait, but I appreciate the caution taken with the dogs. Karen kept me updated with current pictures which made it a little easier. Finally the big day came. Karen walked me through the paperwork and answered all my questions. I could not be more pleased with my new family members. The puppies are healthy, well groomed, and happy. It is plain to see that they have been well cared for. They came with vet records of their shots, puppy exam, and neutering. I was supplied with needed items for a new puppy owner. I recommend D & R Rescue if you are looking to adopt.
We have adopted 2 Pomeranian dogs from D&R (Karen). The most recent as of June 2015, a small female Pom named Kitty. It is nice to know that the person involved is sincere and loves what she does and that is Karen. Both dogs were perfect, clean and well groomed when we adopted them. I would absolutely deal with D&R and Karen again but we are at our limit of dogs. It was a wonderful experience and the dogs wonderful. The dogs also came with a lot of info and coupons to help get started with your new pup.
