I would highly recommend Doberman & Rottweiler Rescue, Inc. to anyone looking to adopt a new pet!

I recently adopted a puppy from the R&D Rescue and was provided with every accommodation imaginable. Karen always replied very quickly to emails and even sent pictures of our growing puppy while we waited for him to be ready for adoption. On the day of adoption, I took part in a one-on-one training session at PetSmart, which was great for first-time puppy adopters. I also received a puppy 'starter kit' with several of the essential needed for bringing home a new dog. Karen provided great recommendations for crate sizes, food brands, and pet supplies. Our puppy was also up-to-date on shots, neutered and micro-chipped on the day of adoption. All of these services were included in the adoption price!

Can't say enough good things about Karen and her team. We found Booker on-line and it was love at first site. Karen was thorough and expedient in reviewing applications, and reaching out to our vet to confirm our parenting skills. Love the care she takes in placing puppies! It is thoughtful and responsible. We picked up Booker from Karen, just a few weeks later along with a host of great information, up to date shots, neutered, and a wonderful bag of goodies from PetSmart including leash, harness, xmas coat, treats, a bag of food, and many toys! What a wonderful surprise overall. We couldn't be more happy with our new pup or the care and communication that D&R provides!! Thank you so much for all you do for pets and their parents! Gigi

I adopted a puppy from D & R Rescue on 12-5-17 and met with Karen at Terre Haute IN. I was very pleased with how well organized she was with the paperwork. It didn't take very long at all to over the papers and get them filled out. Karen had made it to petsmart before My daughter and I did and she was shopping for clothes for our new puppy along with dog food and treats. All the items she purchased she gave to us for free! Thank you Karen, I love my puppy.

Although we did not end up with a dog, Karen was great and my husband and I had a great experience with this organization. Karen was informative and timely- and professional from beginning to end. She and Doberman and Rottweiler Rescue are definitely out to find these animals good homes - not just homes. We would certainly look into adopting with them in the future if the stars would align. Thank you for everything Karen!!

we have never adopted a pet before but karen and D&R Rescue Inc were great. God bless them... We traveled 7 plus hours to pick our puppy up and was worth every minute of it.. I can not say enough and D&R Rescue.. Karen, whom we corresponded through was such a delight. When we met with her the day we picked up our puppy she had made sure she as groomed. Karen also made sure we had everything we needed to take her home with us and more. Toys, food, collar, leash and all the necessary papers showing she had all of her shots and D&R even had a chip placed in her in case she ever got lost. We was so much help through the prosess of the adoption and kept in touch with us as we had questions and the setting up of the meeting and directions ,, Thank you Karen so much Bill and Sue

We just adopted Toby, a Boxer Lab mix from D&R this weekend. Karen was wonderful to work with throughout the process, from initial contact to application to preps and finally the pick up. She was a wealth of information and was a great mix of personable and professional. She had all medical records and microchip records and various pointers (both personally and thru PetSmart trainer she connected us with) for new dog owners like myself. The PetSmart pick up added value to the process as well and she had good relationships with the trainer and other personnel. Adoption packet was a great help as well. Thank you Karen for making the process such an easy one for us. Matt and Christin (and Toby)

I found my best friend listed on Adopt-A-Pet.com and contacted Karen at Doberman and Rotweiller Rescue, Inc. right away. Peaches is a female Boxador (Boxer/Lab) mix who came from a litter of at least 4 other puppies from a 15 year-old lab who died 2 weeks after giving birth. I can't even fathom what the foster parents of these puppies went through to bottle feed and nurture these pups to the 8 week adoption age, but I am forever in their debt for the opportunity to continue their effort and raise this sweetheart to enjoy the rest of her (or my) life!
It is a wonderful testament to Karen's D & R Rescue that apparently they not only rescue only those breeds but whatever breed is in need!!!
Karen met me at a PetSmart in southern Indiana at the appointed time and had Peaches and 2 of her littermates with her for other adoptees. They evidently have a wonderful relationship with PetSmart because I had a fantastic orientation with a trainer for the care and house-breaking of my new friend. I've had 2 other puppies in my life and 4 other shelter dogs and never had this much attention to the actual care of the dog.
Karen and her cause are the epitome of what rescue is! I highly recommend marking her on your social pages for both professional, but more importantly, caring service to our four-legged friends!!!

We adopted our dog from D&R Rescue via Petfinder and Karen was wonderful to work with every step of the way, answering all of our questions as we prepared for adopting Stanley while being several hours away. When we picked Stanley up, Karen had all of his medical records, as well as the information for transferring his microchip. We're grateful to Karen for fostering these dogs and finding them good homes. Thanks for helping us grow our family, Karen!

I always go thru petfinder site hoping to one day to find a sheltie mix pup. I would never pay what they ask for a purebreed. I always go thru a rescue. There on D&R rescue inc one evening was the cutest sheltie up for adoption. When i contacted the rescue online i got a response right away. Filled out application and in no time I was picking up my little baby. I have rescued over 6 dogs from various rescues and this was the first time she had no worms of one kind or another. The vet said she is sure she is a purebred tri colored sheltie. She fits right in with my 3 other dogs, i cant imagine our life without her. Thank you so much for making this such an easy transition. We named Mary, Gypsy Rose. She has grown from 3.8 pounds to 6 pounds already.

About a month ago we were looking for a new Sheltie puppy as our 15 yrs old Sheltie had cancer and we knew our time was running short with him. By pure chance I stumbled upon a rescue through a Google search for D&R Rescue. They had a litter of 4 Sheltie puppies that had been surrendered. I immediately contacted them about adopted our boy Loki. The response was extremely fast. They sent over their application and explained their process. I immediately returned it and within 12 hrs had received an email stating we were approved to adopt Loki. We live about 3 hours away but by pure chance we were able to pick up our boy the same weekend we were travelling to Indianapolis. The owner was extremely accommodating setting up a time that would work and save us an extra 3 he drive since we were in the area. Upon picking up our boy he came with everything needed for a puppies first couple weeks. This rescue was not just accommodating they also really seemed very knowledgeable and truly seemed to care for the animals in their care. I loved working with this process and will recommend to anyone looking for a puppy. Thank you for our life long friend. Andrea and Ryan Simpson from Central Illinois

D&R Rescue is a top notch rescue organization like none other I've come across. They delivered to me my precious dog Charlie, but more than that, they put a dog in my arms that was well fed, happy and healthy. I know that things can be otherwise with rescues, as many of my friends have brought dogs home from them that were starving, dirty and sick, some of which required many hundreds or even thousands of dollars in vet bills to address problems from overcrowded cage living at the rescue, some of which have been quite serious. My friends love their rescue dogs and were willing to go that extra mile, but I am full of praise for D&R for the higher level of management and hygiene they appear in every way to practice at their rescue facility. Not to mention love. Charlie is a people-confident girl, and that speaks well of her life before she became my forever dog. I highly recommend D&R Rescue.

We had been looking for a Maltese mix for over two months on the internet. My husband refused to drive more than 100 miles to get a dog, so I just kept looking.
Finally, I actually saw one in my own town of Paris, IL!! I called Karen White immediately, but the dog had already been taken out on approval. Shucks!
I let Karen know what I wanted and left it at that. Within two weeks, I got an e-mail from Karen letting me know that she had a dog she thought would be right for me.
When we were finally able to get together, we fell in love right away! She gave us lots of tips about taking in an abused pet, gave us food and equipment.
We love our "Bingly "and we are thankful for Karen's help!

We discovered D & R Rescue through Petfinder. My boyfriend and I didn’t have any dogs and had been searching for one for weeks. Because we wanted to be sure we were getting a good dog for our lifestyle, we were probably a bit difficult to deal with. But Karen was very understanding and accommodating. We ended up running late to meet her and when we called to tell her she assured us that that would be okay and that we’d still get a chance to look at the dogs we were interested in adopting. When we arrived she allowed us to play with all the pups we were considering to help us feel confident about our choice. When we chose, she ran through all her paperwork with us and we were happy to discover that she had already been spade, chipped, and received her first round of puppy shots. Karen also provided us with dog food and a ton of new toys for Coraline to play with. It was amazing how much we were getting for the price of $180! I’m so happy we chose D & R!!

My husband and I and our 4 kids were in search of a rescue puppy and came across Rottweiler and Doberman Rescue, Inc on AdoptaPet.com . There were dogs and puppies rescued from a sad hoarding situation (puppies are a mix of Chihuahua, Dachshund, Beagle, and Jack Russell). I filled out the adoption forms and was contacted by Karen White from the Rescue after she reviewed my application and talked with my Vet. I was very pleased she went to that length to make sure our family would care for our puppy. I drove 3 1/2 hours to meet 2 of the puppies at the designated meeting place, a Petsmart in Terre Haute, IN. The puppies had been at a Foster Home that had dogs, cats and children and they were very healthy, well cared for, clean and playful! It was so hard to choose between the two but chose our darling Joey! Karen had him microchipped, neutered, up to date on all shots, de-fleaed and handed me a bag of food, a bunch of toys, treats and since it was right before Halloween she sent us home with a Halloween Costume!!! This is a wonderful Rescue... Karen and her foster families care for their animals ... no doubt our puppy has been loved and cared for. Thank you Rottweiler and Doberman Rescue!!! The whole family is in complete love with our sweet puppy!!! These beautiful sweet animals are so very lucky to have you. Thank you so much for everything!!!
Sincerely,
Miranda

Over the last few months, I began my search for the perfect puppy to adopt and to give a forever home to. I searched thoroughly online through several rescues and websites, and although I found various dogs I thought could be a great fit for my personality, home, and lifestyle, I obtained the hands down best customer service and support from Karen with D&R Rescue. Not only did she provide me with the opportunity to adopt the most precious puppy of all time, but she quickly responded to every email from my first inquiry to the application process and throughout the adoption. Karen still takes the time to keep in touch about my new puppy as well. Although responding to emails and questions may seem standard, I believe many people will agree that Karen goes above and beyond to make sure the animals at her rescue are adopted by the right individuals or families and that the entire process runs smoothly and in a friendly manner. I can honestly say that this type of service is something that cannot be found at all rescues. Besides Karen’s support, I was amazed and so grateful for the “goodies” that came along with the adoption. I came home with not only my new best friend, but also a bag of food, tons of toys, treats, pamphlets, discounts, vet records, and much more, which were all for free! Karen also allowed me to purchase a puppy crate from her for a very minimal fee, which was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend going through D&R Rescue for anyone wanting to adopt in the future. I am very glad that I found this rescue online, and I will be forever grateful for their help with adopting Riley (previously named Charlotte). Thank you!

In May 2017 I was searching for a German Shepherd on PetFinder and was very excited to find a Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix with D & R. Since the day that Karen gave me Jimmy, he has been the perfect pup! Not only did he come microchipped, neutered, with his puppy shots, and with a wide array of goodies, he had clearly been extremely well cared for and loved in his foster home. As a rescue dog (granted he is a puppy), he had NO behavioral issues related to lack of training or mistreatment. He was extremely well socialized and loves everyone in sight. Karen's care for Jimmy did not stop at adoption, but she continues to check up on the little guy. Just a wonderful experience, and I continue to appreciate Karen and the D & R rescue on a daily basis!

My husband and I had been searching PetFinder for the newest member of our family for some time. We both love the personality and temperament of cocker spaniels, but my husband was hoping to find a dog that was a bit larger and smarter. Then we found Layla (a flat coated retriever/spaniel mix)! She was being fostered by D&R rescue and seemed like the perfect fit! Karen from D&R responded to our application very quickly and made arrangements to continue Layla's foster care until we were able to drive from Indianapolis to meet her. In the interim, Karen answered all of our questions about Layla and kept us up to date on her vet care.
When we met Layla, we knew within seconds that she was the dog we were looking for. She is possibly the sweetest dog I have ever met. Everything that Karen had told us was accurate. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the wonderful care package the rescue had made for her. It even included toys made by hand. It was clear that little Layla was well cared for. I am very thankful to Karen and D&R rescue. Working with them was a positive experience and I highly recommend them.

We adopted our 8 week old German Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix from D & R rescue in May 2017.
We found our puppy on petfinder. They were quick to respond to emails and great to work with. They helped place our little guy as soon as our application had been approved.
Our puppy, Roscoe, came neutered and with his first set of puppy shots. He was also microchipped. He was very clean and obviously well loved.
The whole process was very quick and painless. They also stated they would take him back within 14 days for a full refund as well as take him back at any point in his life. While we won't need to bring him back, it is obvious they really care about their animals.
The adoption fee was very affordable.
I would definitely recommend adopting from D & R rescue. If we ever look for a friend for Roscoe, we will definitely go back to D&R. We are so glad to have Roscoe in our lives. Thanks D & R rescue!
