WOW! This place is amazing! After being disappointed by lack of responses from numerous other shelters/ non profits, we were skeptical about applying to others. Well, D&R had 2 adorable pups listed so we applied again. Within 24 hours, Karen replied back , conducted all references and background/ vet checks and had us approved! Our puppy came home groomed, spayed, first round of shots, materials for crate training, pet insurance for 30 days, food, treats, leash and toys & more! WOW WOW WOW!! I have been telling everyone who stops to meet us on our walks where we adopted our pup! Karen and her crew are amazing people and work really hard to find homes for these animals.

My daughter was searching for a dog for herself and came across this group and a dog she thought sounded perfect for us (her parents). She send us the link and we looked at it and thought yeah that sounds like a sweet dog. The group was very clear on the description of this dog and seem to be thoughtful about making sure it was going to go to a good home. They did indeed check our references and our veterinarian history
Karen White was very helpful and professional. I appreciate the work that she is doing to find dogs good homes

I had been searching for a dog for our family for several months. I found our perfect match on Pet Finders and he was being fostered by D & R. I contacted Karen via e-mail and she quickly responded to my questions. What a wonderful adoption experience we had! Our little guy was newly bathed and trimmed, and ready for the many hugs and kisses he would receive from our family. Karen was extremely professional and gave us instructions on his healthcare. I valued her opinion and she was right...he is the sweetest little guy and quickly bonded with our family. Animals in the care of D & R Rescue are very fortunate....they will be very well taken care of until the perfect loving home is found for them. Our family thanks you!

D & R Rescue has been so helpful to us. I recently contacted D & R Rescue about a puppy they had taken in and after thorough review of our application we were accepted and we were able to pick up our little Lexi girl! I was happy to know that they really review the applications and really make sure that the dogs will go to a good home where they are taken care of and loved. D& R Rescue is 3 hours away from where we live but I was so pleased at the way things were done that were not hesitant to make the drive. I would definitely adopt from this rescue again! Karen has been so helpful. She went over all of the info with us that we will need in the weeks to come with our new rescue puppy and has kept in contact with responding so quickly to emails I have sent since. I love knowing that staying in touch with them was just as important to them as it was to our family. I would recommend this rescue to family and friends and if I lived closer would love to volunteer my time with them

Well, it's been 2 months since I brought my little Rottie home. I didn't think I was ever going to get back home. Here's how the day's events unfolded. The drive from my house to Terre Haute is every bit of 4 hours. About an hour away from my destination I pulled into a rest area to stretch my legs. When I went to start my vehicle, it wouldn't start. I spent the next hour asking everyone if they had jumper cables thinking it was the battery. Turned out it was the starter. Mind you, it's Sunday and now going on 4:00pm, no place open to get my vehicle fixed. I was due in Terra Haute by this time. I called Karen, the D & R Rescue contact and explained what was going on and that somehow I would make it there, just not sure when. Once the tow truck arrived, I called Karen back to let her know I was on my way. She recommended a place to have my vehicle dropped off so it could get fixed the next day and told me to have the tow truck driver drop me off at her place of work and she would meet me there and pick me up. She then told me that she would let me stay at her house that night. On top of that, she let me use her vehicle the next day while my vehicle was getting fixed, so I could take my new little guy to the park and get to know him. As a D & R Rescue representative Karen went above and beyond her responsibilities, for me, a complete stranger! I would highly recommend anyone looking to rescue a Rottweiler (or Doberman) to go through D & R Rescue first. I can't say enough good things about her or this organization.

I was seeking a companion pup for my dog Sophie. While searching Pet Finder I came across Cooper. I contacted D & R Rescue regarding the possibility of adopting him. The application and adoption process was professional but straightforward. Karen was professional and wonderful to work with. She is very experienced and gave me some great suggestions on introducing a new pup into our home. She answered all of my questions prior to adopting and after. She also suggested some great dog training facilities in my area. She has a true love and passion for rescuing and making sure the rescues end up in the right forever homes. Sophie and Cooper are great pals and I'm so very happy and grateful we were the right forever home for Cooper.

I recently adopted Pluto, now Baxter, and was amazed at the quality of service! First off Karen responded to me within the hour with what more information she needed from me to get approved and within a day I had been approved! The next day I went and met Baxter and fell in love! I was looking for an Emotional Service Dog and Karen saw that Baxter would fit the profile and he did! He by far exceeded my expectations and I love him more than anything in the world! If you are looking for high quality, professional, and helpful people to adopt a dog from this is the place! I couldn't have asked for a better dog and am so glad I was able to get the help and support I needed from Karen to find him! I had been looking painfully for around a month and was getting very discouraged when I found him. He was well worth the wait!

I lost my dog, Keebler, on Sept 19, 2013 and didn't think I would ever be able to love another dog, but after some time and a lot of sadness, my sister-n-law convinced me to look for another dog. In May 14, 2014 I saw a photo of Buddy on Petfinder while I was searching for a Chihuahua mix from D & R Rescue, Inc. I contacted Karen and she responded immediately. Since Buddy was still a baby we had to wait a little while to get him, but Karen was always very kind and stayed in contact with me and answered any and all questions. The day I picked Buddy up, was the first time I had seen him, aside from his photo, but he was adorable and so loving and sweet. I was surprised that the adoption fee covered Buddy being neutered, microchipped, treats, dog food, collar & leash and much more. Karen is one of the most caring people I have met. She cares about the animals and the person adopting them. Thank you so much Karen for allowing us to adopt Buddy and bringing the joy and laughter back into our family. He is spoiled rotten and is living a great life now that wouldn't be possible without people like Karen and others who rescue these pets. So thank you once again Karen and D & R Rescue, Inc for choosing us for Buddy. We love him so very much!

We received Jax from D&R rescue and are very happy with the whole process. Karen White was great and I would recommend her and the rescue for anyone seeking a pet.

After searching for a dog on petfinder I found a little shih tzu that I was interested in. So I contacted D & R rescue. Karen notified me right away that the dog I was interested in had found another home but she suggested this other little dog named Scooby. She sent me pictures and described him as being playful and great with other dogs. Which is exactly what I was looking for being that I have two other dogs. After talking back and fourth for a couple days we were able to meet Scooby at a adoption event at Petsmart. I fell in love with him right on the spot. I was sure he would be a great fit for my family. So I adopted him! I kept in touch with Karen over the folloeong weeks to let her know how Scooby was doing with my other dogs. She answered any questions I had and educated me on many things! You can really tell that she is passionate about her job and finding forever homes for these dogs. I have recommended her to many friends who are looking to adopt. Thanks for helping me and my family find our newest fur baby ! We love him so much!
