A very ethical and honorable charity helping dogs, cats, and people throughout southern CA, I am proud to donate to such a phenomenal group. I've adopted a dog through this rescue, and now I volunteer and donate. Always willing to lend a hand to fellow rescuers, private dog owners, and those who need it, not to mention following their mission to save unwanted animals from euthanasia. Thank you so much for what you do!

These reviews are all written by their friends n volunteers. If you want the truth about this company go to ripoffreports.com or Google the name of their founder along with the word BULLY and u will quickly discover the truth about them. They have harassed and stalked many other rescue, volunteers and fosters since the groups inception just a couple of short years ago.

In addition, it has now come to light that the founder Ms. Marcella Jane's is no longer employed as a registered nurse and us collecting a hefty salary from the rescue. They claim to use donations for the dogs but the truth is Ms. Marcella Janes is lining her pockets with your donations.

GTTDRI is a very dedicated and loving rescue. They take in many unwanted, injured, old, not as desirable doggies. As long as they have a foster they'll take the dog, many times without pledges. They respond to fosters needs immediately. Have always been helpful and understanding. They want whats best for all of their rescues. Thank you GTTDRI.

Gone to the Dogs, Rescue, Inc. is an awesome rescue. The level of commitment, compassion and professional skills demonstrated HUMBLY yet CONFIDENTLY , COOPERATIVELY, PROACTIVELY and with respect for dogs, every level of rescue helper, and fosters as well as other rescues in the field...it just does not invite comparison. Recently the A-Team here with a myriad of FB and community volunteers, and GTTDR rescue reps saved an extremely gravely at risk white lab-x from a high kill shelter that is awfully difficult to reach and to extract dogs from.

This little guy turned out to weigh 14 pounds at almost 6 months old. He also turned out to be above average endearingly adorable. It is a great feeling, as a thread "angel" long distance and rescue farmer back East, to know that this fragile baby doll will receive the highest level of care in order to help him heal and thrive, God willing and the creek don't rise. This rescue epitomizes LOVE in ACTION.

We already had one rescue dog from Devore when I saw a post from GTTD for another Devore dog that needed out asap. We responded to foster - and then Wyatt (a pit/mix) had to spend two weeks at the vet as he was so sick. We picked him up and found him to be a bit bigger than we thought. My daughter was big dog fearful and we worried about keeping him, BUT we all fell in love. Best dog ever. Taunya and Marcy stood by us when we wanted to keep him and really made it happen for our family. We foster failed and have never looked back. Then we saw a dog at SBC that was getting no attention (and he looked just like our first little one) and I begged GTTD to help me and we would foster. They did and that is how we got Andy - another amazing dog. Foster fail number three. I have also fostered two other dogs for GTTD - one was an abuse case and Max is now in a loving home. When going to pick up Max, I feel hard for another little guy and again begged for help backing the dog - that led us to Scruffy who also got adopted into a great home. Our family would not be the same with GTTD and the help of these caring people. They always put the welfare of the dogs first and never attempt a rescue without a plan. I have learned from them and I so respect the work they do. Thank you for Wyatt and Anderson and Cooper too. Can I also share that we never met any of our dogs until they were out of the shelter and handed to us - and they are all just the sweetest and most loving dogs ever.

My family and I were looking for a rescue for several months and stumbled upon a cute young mix we saw on line. It turns out that this was a surrender who GTTDR accepted and fostered as an alternative to a county shelter. These guys are very particular about who they will let adopt with an in depth application and a personal meeting/site visit which ensures that the family is a good fit for the dog as well as the dog for the family. My wife was never a dog person and we also had an older cat so we were really unsure as to how the adoption would go. The wonderful volunteer drove the dog to our home and watched us interact answering lots of questions and really making us feel comfortable. In addition, she allowed us to act as "fosters" for a week to make sure we were fully comfortable with the dog and did not have any regrets. After four days, every family member was fully in love with the little guy (well, maybe not the cat)and we hadd no doubts that he needed to be in our family. Our volunteer, Heather, checked in on us every day to make sure we were happy. An absolutely wonderful experience.

We had never been involved in fostering of any kind until we connected with GTTDRI. These folks do fabulous work and have HUGE hearts. It never ceases to amaze me just what they can accomplish. My daughter and I are prod to be affiliated with them and will continue to help any way we can - whether it is working an adoption event or fostering a doggie. Love each and every one involved with this rescue!

Gone to the Dogs Rescue is one of the best all breed dog rescues in Southern California and I am proud to be a part of this amazing rescue group. They have a solid group of fosters, volunteers, transporters and followers who all work as a team in getting the medical attention all their rescue dogs need, rehabilitation, training, getting them to adoption events, they don't discriminate against helping strays like some rescues do, proper screening and homechecks before adopting out their rescue dogs to ensure they get the best forever home that all dogs deserve. They are 100% dedicated to helping the dogs until they get their forever home.

I have volunteered as a foster home for several dogs rescued by Gone to the Dogs and it was a positive experience. They are a very professional organization, and provide everything they say they will provide to keep the dogs healthy and happy while in foster. All of the dogs I fostered went on to get amazing forever homes that would not have been possible without the dedication and passion of the Gone to the Dogs team. I even adopted one of my fosters and I could not imagine my life without her now. This is a rescue that does it right!
