After searching Pet finder for awhile, I just knew when I saw what would be our new family dog. We appreciated the responsiveness and care that was taken during the adoption process and the great care our Mia received there before we brought her home.

D&R Rescue really cares about making sure their pets go to great homes. We adopted our wonderful miniature schnauzer puppy from this rescue and they have been communicative and supportive every step of the way, including after adoption. We are very happy with our experience with D&R and the great work they are doing!

We adopted Bismarck from them almost 7 years ago. Wonderful experience when we drove from Champaign, IL to pick him up in Terre Haute Karen was so well organized. Had all the paperwork ready and had him in a private room for us to meet and greet. Of course, we fell in love with him at first sight. Sadly Bismarck passed away this winter of mouth cancer. He was the best and sweetest dog we've ever had. This summer we decided to get a new companion for our other dog Bandit. Karen notified me of Ripley (We named him Smokey), so we have Smokey and the Bandit! He is loving sweet, a great lap dog, awesome leash walker and a true delight. Always such a pleasure to work with Karen. She is so well organized. I'm really impressed with this organization. They do everything to get the dogs in the right home. We highly recommend this organization. Smokey on the left in the photo.

We were looking for a dog to adopt and looked everywhere and filled out application after application. We had found 2 dogs we liked but both were adopted the day before we got to go visit them. We found Luca (aka Janet) on Adopt-A-Pet.com. She is a bodercollie/jtr mix. She is very loving, playful and full of life. I had filled out adoption application and the next day Karen had emailed me telling we could pick up a puppy in Terra Haute, IN. We love her to pieces.
Thanks Karen!!!!

We had been looking for a family dog for over year, and happened to see a picture a very, very cute Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever puppy on Petfinder. With what can only be described as a wing and prayer, we filled out the application, completed the background check, and were rewarded with what has already become my first grader's very best friend.

Our Elsa (who is only appx 10 weeks old) already has bonded with our other pets (4 cats and an elderly dog), has demonstrated a gentleness so characteristic of the Golden and a protectiveness that I adore about the Pyrenees. She is quite clever and already understands Sit, Come, and is mostly housebroken (when there is an accident that is my fault for not reading her cues better).

D & R provided us with microchip information, vet records, and even a few goodies to help our little girl get situated with us. Additionally, they were very thorough in the background check which I quite like as if I were looking to place a puppy, I would want to ensure it was placed in the most loving of environments. Furthermore, they asked and even followed up to ensure all was going well and clearly truly care about the interest of the pet.

We are not ones to take adoption lightly and know we are adding a lifelong family member to our home that will bring us laughter, endless antics, and yes the occasional spill. Knowing our puppy came from such a caring organization makes us all the more pleased with our addition.

I recently adopted a puppy! Our desire for a puppy started a while back and we knew that we wanted a dog that would be able to work on the farm with us. We had been around some Australian shepherds before and decided that that was the bread we wanted. I started searching. I ended up on adoptapet.com and found our sweet Holly. The same day I contacted Karen about adopting her, I received an email back and began the adoption process. I was able to go and get her shortly after. She came up to date with vaccines, neutered and was very clean. Karen set us up with dog food, a collar and many helpful guidelines to bringing home a puppy. I am so in love with our baby! I highly recommend adopting from Doberman and Rottwiler Rescue!

We lost our Molly in May. I did not think we would want to get another dog so quickly, but then something just told me to look on Petfinder.com just to see "what was out there." We found and fell in love with our new baby, Sadie (and her sisters, but my husband said I could have only one- darnit!). We worked with Karen White, who was absolutely fantastic about accommodating us (since we live in Urbana, IL, she was even willing to meet us after hours... even after suffering a concussion!). I just can't say enough good things about what a great organization this is- very clean and took great care of our Sadie Baby- thank you, Karen and D & R Rescue! You guys rock!

We adopted Simon from D and R Rescue for our daughter and he has been the perfect fit for her. We told Karen what we were looking for and everything she told us was spot on. She is an amazing dog person and knows exactly what she is doing and talking about! I would recommend her to anyone looking to adopt a pet! Thank you for the new addition to our family!!

I have recently bought my own home and have a 10 yr boxer tht I have had since he was 3 months old. And I had bn looking around tryn to find the rite dog to fit my life and family and my older dog. I found out about D&R rescue through a lady tht wrks with Karen. And she had let me know tht Karen had a young female doberman tht sounded like she might b the match i was looking for. So i went to meet the dog her name is Ava and i absolutly feel n love with her so i filled out the application for her and Karen does the best i have ever seen in making sure tht when she adopts a dog out tht its going to a forever loving home by doing a home inspection,checking out vet records of any animals u own or have owned in the past, ect... So i was schedule to pick up Ava on a sat and the unexpected happn my 10 yr old dog got very sick and i had to put him n the vet hosp so i had let Karen know about wht had happened and she kept Ava for me till my older dog got better and was bk to him old self. She even calld me off and on every few days to c how my older dog was doing. Karen is very compassionate about animals and wht she does. So the day came tht i was able to get her and i was so excited to b gettn my new addition to my family. Ava was alrdy spayed utd on all her shots and had bn groomed for me tht day before i got there to pick her up, also microchipped and came with new collar,leash,bag of food, and a bag of goodies. I got her on Jan 25 so i've had her for a little over a month now and shes a complete joy to have she is exactly how Karen had told me she was. Im very grateful to Karen for doing wht she does for these dogs and takn care of Ava for me till my older dog got better.
