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.

Results:

Since inception, we have saved, medically and emotionally treated, and homed over 500 dogs and cats (mostly dogs).

Target demographics:

injured, abandoned, homeless animals

Direct beneficiaries per year:

200 dogs and cats find furever homes

Geographic areas served:

NorthEast Ohio

Programs:

fostering, rehabilitation, medical attention, and lots and lots of love and nurturing until the dogs and cats are healthy and happy in furever homes!

I adopted my Ben, a German Shepherd Dog from DUR. What a great group of people. They put so much into each and every dog that they bring into their rescue. My boy is a "special needs boy" and they really went above and beyond with their care for this sweet dog. I have stayed in touch with this group since adopting Ben 2 1/2 years ago. They are like family now, and are always wanting to know how "our" boy is. Best rescue I have ever worked with.

We had a wonderful experience with Dogs Unlimited Rescue. From the first meeting with Chloe's foster mom, Pat, through to our adoption day, all went well. We were especially happy that the rescue was MOST interested in Chloe's being in the CORRECT home for her. A puppy mill mom, who had been deserted in a barn in January with no heat and no food, Chloe was going to take some special adjustment time, and when we asked for advice about her well-being, we got caring and patient answers. Thanks to Dogs Unlimited, we have a very special addition to our family, and Chloe is now a happy, well-adjusted little sweetheart of a family dog. Mary Ellen and Bill Carroll

We had such an amazing experience with Dogs Unlimited when we got our first dog Finn that 2 years later we went back and found Fiona. Both dogs were handled through Marcy M. She was kind and upfront about their needs as well as willing to work with our schedule to meet them. She and Dogs Unlimited have kept in contact with us to see how well the relationship between us and our new dogs has gone. Both dogs have turned out to be kind, gentile, and healthy dogs. We can not thank them enough for their rescue efforts and enthusiasm for finding and placing these dogs with loving homes. They are generous, selfless and certainly under appreciated for all their hard work. I refer all my friends, when looking for new family pets, to Dogs Unlimited because I have 100% trust in their ability to appropriately place a dog in a well fitting family/situation.

We started looking for a companion for our older Siberian Husky about three months ago, and stumbled across Dogs Unlimited. We filled out a very detailed application, and started to watch for updates about dogs available through this organization. We spotted two puppies who were adorable (Cabernet and Idina), and requested to meet them. We fell in love with Cabernet, now Piper, and we're delighted to get her. We loved that her foster mom brought her to our house to meet our Husky, and was knowledgable about her situation. We were impressed by how thorough the process was, and the care with which the organization dealt with the adoption.
Our connection did not end after our adoption. We continued to follow this organization. When one of their rescues (Idina's mom) slipped her harness, my husband helped in the search. Again, we were impressed by this organization and their love of these animals as they used every resource they had to rescue this dog.
We rescued our older dog, and I will say, not all rescue organizations are the same. Dogs Unlimited doesn't just re-home dogs, they find the best home for their dogs. They keep the safety and well-being of the dogs as a priority, and that is a wonderful thing!

I can't say enough good things about Gina Lutes and Dogs Unlimited, not to mention the many volunteers that foster the rescued dogs. I have two dogs from DUR and they have brought us nothing but joy. My first rescue was shot by her owner in a bad part of the city and the police who took her knew to call Gina because she would take her in when many others wouldn't. Gina personally nurtured her to a point where she could be adopted and we were the lucky family that did! Our second rescue came from a home where she was horribly neglected. She is a fantastic dog! Gina is very hands-on when finding adoptive families and makes sure they go to the right home. I'm so happy that we found DUR. We will continue to go to Gina for our furry family members and I recommend DUR to anyone looking.

About 1 ½ years ago, I adopted my little Chihuahua through Dogs Unlimited Rescue. When he came into their care from a local shelter, he was in need of serious medical attention. He ultimately required several surgeries and many months of care. DUR was there for him at every turn; raising the money for his medical care and his foster mom was an angle; at times taking him across town to the vet daily to treat complications then lovingly nursing him back to health. Today he is a robust and happy little guy who loves to cuddle and give kisses. Without Dogs Unlimited Rescue and their dedicated, caring volunteers my little guy wouldn’t be with us today.

Dogs Unlimited is the most caring organization. They truly care about the well-being of the dogs. I would not hesitate to adopt my next family member from them!

This organization stands out among other (also great) rescues - they are deeply involved with every animal they work with, as well as every potential adopter. The level of care that they demonstrate in every aspect of their work is truly astounding and inspiring. Our adoption experience was wonderful, and we will seek DUR first when we're ready to adopt another one!

I do not have a single negative thing to say about this organization. My original puppy that I wanted fell through because of foster problems but they made the best of the situation and now I couldn't be happier! The organization stays in complete contact with you throughout the whole application process and I will always go first to this organization for any dog needs :) THANK YOU DOGS UNLIMMITED RESCUE
