Hello, I just wanted to say we just adopted an adorable dog from D & R rescue and we were very happy with the way it was handled. It's great to know how involved and particular they are in the adoption process. They care about the homes and people that are going to be adopting the animals. We know several couples who had adopted or rescued dogs from them, and I'm very pleased with the personal service we received.

Our family has been blessed with a miniature poodle we call "Maggie." Maggie found us through Petfinder.com thanks to D & R Rescue.

Our experience with Karen at D & R was wonderful. We had never adopted through a rescue before, but Karen put our family at ease. We found her to be very patient, kind and helpful through the entire process.

Since we were coming from out of state, Karen was kind and offered to meet us on a Sunday morning. I don't know if Maggie knew she was coming home with us that day but she was excited to see us. Before we left, Karen made sure we understood the adoption process and provided us copies of Maggie's recent check-up. (All shots were up-to-date and she was microchipped.) Karen also provided us with a supply of Maggie's necessities including food, flea/heartworm meds, collar & leash, and even a little jacket and some toys,

Maggie's temperament has been exactly as Karen described. She is very well mannered and seems quite content in her new home.

Our family highly recommends D & R Rescue. Thank you!!

After fostering for the D&R Rescue for a few years, we have nothing but the high praise for the operational methods of this rescue. We have adopted two adorable and loving dogs from the D&R Rescue as well as fostered and "potty-trained" many dogs. The rescue works very hard to make sure the right people adopt the right dog. Numerous hours are spent checking with the references on the adoption form as well as the vet check. It's not about just getting the dog a home, its about getting the dog the right forever home. Consequently, the D&R has "repeat" adoptions and recommendations for new adoptions. We believe this speaks volumes for the dedicated work that is done by this rescue. These dogs are family ready. The rescue makes sure the dog has all its vet work done, groomed, micro chipped and has a new leash and collar. We as foster parents, get the easy job of loving them until the magic of finding these little dogs a forever home happens. Karen is one of the most dedicated people we know for the well-being of all animals. We feel privileged to foster her dogs.
