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.

We were looking to add a fur friend to our family. I started with the Humane Society but decided that I needed to branch out. I found a couple dogs with D&R Rescue on pet finder and sent in an inquiry. The dogs I had asked about actually didn't meet the criteria we had for our new addition (we needed one that would be 20-40 lbs as an adult as we have small kids.) Karen recommended another dog in their rescue that she felt would be a better fit. That's how we met Stella. She is a bundle of joy and really good around our kids. We're thankful for Karen's thoughts and suggestions and are really please with our new family member. We went home with a new friend, food, toys, leash and lots of love. A great experience.

I had been looking for a schnauzer puppy on Petfinder for over a month when I came across a schnauzer/beagle mix who was being fostered with D&R Rescue. Karen answered my email quickly and got the application process moving right away. When we picked up our puppy, she walked me through all of the paperwork and the steps we'd need to take once we got the puppy home. I was so relieved, because I'm a first-time puppy parent and was a bit nervous. We also got a puppy starter kit for PetSmart, so we got a free bag of food, coupons, and a discount on puppy training classes! We LOVE our little pup, and definitely recommend adopting through D&R Rescue!!

We had been looking for a family dog for over year, and happened to see a picture a very, very cute Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever puppy on Petfinder. With what can only be described as a wing and prayer, we filled out the application, completed the background check, and were rewarded with what has already become my first grader's very best friend.

Our Elsa (who is only appx 10 weeks old) already has bonded with our other pets (4 cats and an elderly dog), has demonstrated a gentleness so characteristic of the Golden and a protectiveness that I adore about the Pyrenees. She is quite clever and already understands Sit, Come, and is mostly housebroken (when there is an accident that is my fault for not reading her cues better).

D & R provided us with microchip information, vet records, and even a few goodies to help our little girl get situated with us. Additionally, they were very thorough in the background check which I quite like as if I were looking to place a puppy, I would want to ensure it was placed in the most loving of environments. Furthermore, they asked and even followed up to ensure all was going well and clearly truly care about the interest of the pet.

We are not ones to take adoption lightly and know we are adding a lifelong family member to our home that will bring us laughter, endless antics, and yes the occasional spill. Knowing our puppy came from such a caring organization makes us all the more pleased with our addition.
