Mission: Dogs Unlimited Rescue, Inc. is an all volunteer non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating the public and saving abused and neglected animals from an uncertain fate. Our organization rescues animals from high kill shelters, hoarding situations, abuse or neglect cases, owner surrenders, and the breeding parents in Ohio puppy mills that would otherwise be inhumanely disposed of. We improve their lives by providing quality care and placement into permanent loving homes. We will continue to educate, rescue, rehabilitate and encourage the adoption of pets from shelters and rescue groups. We do not maintain a physical shelter. All our rescues are in loving foster care. We differentiate ourselves by providing animals in our rescue with ONLY quality care and even though it may be costly, these animals deserve nothing less and that is why donations are so vitally important. Our vetting is very costly along the with other related expenses (rehabilitation, training, etc.) of the animals in our rescue.

Dogs Unlimited has helped countless dogs from The Mahoning County Dog Pound. They go above and beyond to ensure they find perfect forever homes and have all the necessary vetting. Thank you Dogs Unlimited!

I am retired and was looking for a new avenue to travel and found it with DUR. I became a Foster Mom after a special person talked me into it and I love this new goal in life. It is very fulfilling and I can't say enough about the organization and it's founder. I would recommend any retired person who is looking for something to do to join and be a foster or a volunteer. In fact after joining I became a foster failure and fell in love with one of my fosters. She is now my forever little one. Thank you DUR!

An awesome group of people who deserve a big pat on the back for fostering and finding our pets homes. For giving all that they can. I have an adopted beagle named Jake, who is crazy, but, I love him so much, from DUR. It is a wonderful nonprofit.

I cannot even begin to describe what an amazing organization DUR is. I got Ollie about 9 months ago and the process was very efficient and quick. While trying to adopt a dog last summer I filled out multiple applications for other rescues and never heard back. With DUR I heard back within a day or so and my references were also checked quickly. They were willing to hold into him for a couple weeks to make his transition into my house easier on both of us. Everything they described about his personality was spot on too. I love that they have different opportunities in the community for Ollie to go back and see his fosters and tell them how well he's doing. I've also helped out at a couple events and everyone is just wonderful!

Absolutely nothing. I wish they were closer to me but that's not their issue!

My boys and I adopted our Gracie from Dogs Unlimited Rescue. What a great organization, doing really great work! The process was easy, they kept us informed and they took great care of our girl until she came to us as her forever home. If you're looking to rescue a dog in need, this is the place to go!

First off I want to say how amazing this organization is and that it is truely made up of the kindest people I have ever met! I started off fostering to beagles that went to wonderful homes, immediatly I got another that was in and out. Then I got my fourth foster beagle Monty who was a special case. He came in with 6-7 other beagle and another resuce took them all but Monty and said hes not worth saving, but Dogs Unlimited stepped in for him. Monty was a foster for nearly 2 yrs before getting adopted out on a trial basis. During this trial Monty got away and DUR did everything to help me find this foster baby. He ran and ran for nearly a week but our volunteers never gave up and we got him. At that point Gina and I discussed Montys home was with me and the resuce has still helped me with him and My other 2 beagles Greeley and Crash as I finish up nursing school. The resuce has went above and beyond for me and my dogs making sure they had what they needed even though they didnt have too, between my husbands job loss and me going back to school. Im proud to be a part of DUR and very glad to have met some of the wondrful people that contribute to the rescue. Im greatful that Monty became apart of my life and left a little paw print on my heart thanks to DUR.

Over three years ago, we adopted an amazing border collie mix, Jasmine (now Jessie) from Dogs Unlimited Rescue. I saw her photo on petfinder and knew that she was my dog! :) That led me to Dogs Unlimited. Jessie had been rescued from a hoarding situation, and was one of 80 animals living in and outside of the owner's home. I found Gina to be incredibly helpful, knowledgable, and accessible. In the first weeks after the adoption, she was available to help in any way I would have needed, and to this day I can always share with Gina my joys and stories about Jessie. I was so impressed with Dogs Unlimited, their professionalism and commitment, that I became a volunteer soon after. It continues to be delightful and meaningful to help others find their new furry family members.

Working with Dogs Unlimited to adopt our rescued MinPin Bailey, was a great experience. He was abused prior to being rescued, and had to have an eye evaluated and later removed. Marcy (foster mom) made sure Bailey was back up to acceptable health before she would adopt him out to us. We received him with all of his shots being up to date & supporting documentation, his medical history, and was in very good health (minus an eye). If we were not happy with Bailey, we were told that we could return him and receive a refund if we wanted. There was no need for a refund because we still have Bailey, and he is living at his forever home, fitting in very well with 2 other dogs and 4 cats. I felt the adoption price was very reasonable, considering all of the medical attention, neutering, and shots that he received, plus keep in mind the amount of time is spent by the foster parent caring for the dogs, as well as daily supplies such as food while he is in the foster home. I would highly recommend Dogs Unlimited to anyone who is looking to adopt a dog.

None that I could think of. Everything went very well with our adoption.

Max was the first dog I saw at a big dog rescue event. Fell in love with him immediately but had to look at others as I told my grandchildren that we could not adopt the first dog we saw. After looking at others we rushed back to claim Max, with the hope that he would also claim us. His foster mom, Pat, was there and told us all about him and I hurried to fill out an application. Was very impressed with their adoption process and, although it took a couple of weeks, he became mine last August. So good to know that they really check out the people who apply.

The people at the rescue, especially Kim, were wonderful.

We fostered a dog with DUR this year. It was an amazing organization to work with. They all truly care about the animals and finding the perfect home. Wish we could still foster with them but we adopted our foster dog and now have a full house :)
