The Dog Liberator (TDL) is an INCREDIBLE rescue that has the very best, long-term, caring Founder (along with her family!) and volunteers! I also appreciate that TDL does not discriminate; TDL takes in ALL KINDS: ages, disabilities, unwell, deaf, blind, etc. of dogs (they've even rescued some cats!). Taking all these dogs in is positively one of the most expensive "hobbies" I can imagine. Except this is not a hobby for TDL- TDL is their lives. I would never hesitate to donate or buy from their Amazon wish list if I am able. I can say that, TDL has changed our lives for the better-ALL of our lives! We enjoy the annual get togethers where dogs are the belles and beaus of the party! I am continually impressed by the ongoing work of all involved with TDL, organized over multiple states, all with the goal of SAVING LIVES of animals who find themselves in need of help and a home. I remain appreciative for, not only our sweet (challenging, goofy, FUN) adopted girl, but all the other animals they have helped. If you are able to share, even a small amount with TDL, you can rest assured, your contribution will go directly to helping the animals. And TDL is not a short term rescue. They are in it for the long haul! We adopted our girl from them over five years ago now! My Photos: First photo I uploaded is our Sunny girl (formerly named Sunbeam) upon intake to the shelter. She looks so sad, so confused, so baby in a big, scary, loud shelter. She was there with her two other siblings- a whole litter abandoned to probable death in a southeastern rural, high-kill shelter. TDL rescued them all, flew them down to Florida with he help of Pilots And Paws (which is also an AMAZING charity!) and found them all homes. The second picture is us, her new people, the first day we got home. She's definitely still confused LOL but those little ears were up and she knew it was going to be OK. And picture three is...Sunny. That's her. She is happy if she's playing with or ripping apart any number of toys she has. Four is Sunny being an attentive coworker at my job with me.
As a rescue transporter and foster for various rescues on Florida, I worked with the Dog Liberator on a particularly difficult rescue situation with another rescue person a year or so ago, who was ill, and rescue hoarding rescue dogs,and due to her illness, was neglecting the animals under her care. The Dog Liberator was great to work with, very understanding, and extremely supportive and non-judgmental. She is all in for the animals, leaving the politics, and personal conflicts that come as part of the rescue community for others to stress over. She is reputable, does right by the animals and is committed and dedicated to doing the right thing for each and every animal rescued.
TDL adopted a beautiful dog to one of my clients. And when she passed they took the time to make a beautiful video in her memory. It brought me to tears. People who do rescue work have such kind big hearts and do not get nearly the recognition they deserve!!
Great nonprofit organization, has helped many pets and people. I wish there were more like TDL.
This organization is one of the best at helping the rescues that come to it. They make sure all the animals are properly vetted and make sure they get everything and anything they need. Giselle also makes sure all of the rescue babys are adopted into safe loving homes and will be well cared for. I have worked with them in helping them with transports and pulling animals from shelters that they are rescuing. Overall they are an excellent organization that I highly recommend.
