We have nothing but great things to say about D & R Rescue. we love Caesar (Pictured). Karen, was very professional to work with and her assessment of his personality was spot on. We would highly recommend D&R!
My girlfriend and I had been looking around for a dog for a while when we met Rey. She melted our hearts when we first met her and has made our lives so much better since. We couldn't imagine life without her now because of all the joy she brings us.
After searching Pet finder for awhile, I just knew when I saw what would be our new family dog. We appreciated the responsiveness and care that was taken during the adoption process and the great care our Mia received there before we brought her home.
My family was in search of a small breed, younger dog to adopt. I found sweet little Trixie (her previous name was Dilly :-)) on PetFinder and immediately sent D&R Rescue a message. I was blown away by their response time and clear desire to properly make a match between a rescued dog and a family. Karen was amazing, she answered several questions for me, quickly processed our application and met us a day earlier than what we originally discussed.
I highly recommend D&R Rescue, every interaction has been delightful and our family couldn't be happier with our newest addition!
D & R was the perfect place to find the perfect pet for our mother. Staff was experienced, understanding, patient and very knowledgeable. We had been trying for some time to rescue a dog for our elderly mother (86) and so many places would not even consider it. To find a person so understanding of our needs was not only luck, but extraordinary pleasure. D & R is my go to place first when looking for rescues. The process was easy, happy and fast. Our new dog and mother are ecstatic and it was a match made in heaven.
We recently adopted a miniature dachshund from D&R. Karen was extremely reaponsive on every interaction and made the process happen very quickly. Because we have a current dog we wanted to ensure that they would get along and could not have asked for a dog with a better temperament. We were driving from Chicago so Karen was very helpful prior to the trip in making us feel comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of information, food, toys, etc which made the transition much simpler. True to everything we were told, Willy has been an extremely well behaved true joy to be around who has fit in perfectly and we could not be happier. I absolutely would recommend them as it's obvious they care deeply and are knowledgeable in helping these rescues and placing them where it makes sense for both the families and dogs. Thank you!!!
This organization is extremely professional in every manner. Their concern for the animal's well being and future is quite rewarding. I could not have asked to deal with anyone any more knowledgeable and caring than Karen.
By the way, our new puppy, "Sniper", is amazing and has stolen our hearts. Our lives are brighter because of her. Thanks again.

Me and my husband were looking for a pug to adopt, and we came across out Lily on adopt-a-pet who is a puggle. I had a lot of questions because it was my first time owning a dog, and the people here were very nice and helpful. I was very nervous to meet our new dog, but they made it easy and provided everything we needed to start. Our new dog has been nothing less than amazing, and I am very thankful that they brought us together. She's finally found her forever home!
We got a blue heeler mix and were amazed at how great of a dog she is. Her temperament is just as they said. They were quick to respond to all of my emails and went above and beyond with their answers as well as provision of supplies for the new pup. Everything she said was accurate, and we received an incredible dog
