It was our first time adopting and we had a really good experience. Karen was very nice and answered all our questions right away. Since we had to wait for about a month because the puppy was still very young she sent us pictures so we could see her. We adopted a wonderful, healthy and happy beagle puppy (Lucy). We were given a lot of information and helpful tips on getting a new puppy, medical records and she came with a bagful of toys, treats and food! It was a very easy process!
Thank you D&R Rescue!
Working with D&R has been wonderful. We adopted Gemma a little over two weeks ago and she is a wonderful fit with our family. Karen was very helpful with details working up to the adoption and has staying in contact with us afterwards. Gem came fully vetted, microchipped, spayed, and in great health as confirmed by our own veterinarian. She also came with a large bag of treats and toys along with a lot of good information especially if someone were a first time dog owner. We love her to pieces and are so glad we found her and D&R.
This is the 2nd dog we have rescued through D & R Rescue. It was a completely positive experience. Karen was very knowledgeable about how to transition a puppy into our home with an older dog and cat. Maddie has adjusted very well. We recieved a collar, leash, food, treats, dog chews, toys and even a hand crocheted coat for our little Maddie. I have contacted Karen in the past few months with questions and she always gets back to us quickly. This is a great place to rescue from. They care about every step of the process and have tons of experience to share with new owners.
I highly recommend this recipe to anyone wanting a great experience. I not only received a wonderful pet but gained a great friend and mentor.
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!
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.
