Very quick to respond on email and will work around your plans to meet your dog. Was nice, helpful, and gave us everything we needed for our new puppy, Walter (formerly Milo). Toys, treats, etc they provided it!

Our experience adopting our new puppy through D & R Rescue was most pleasurable. We had been looking for a puppy for several months as we are empty nesters now and were looking for a new addition to the family. We found "Sammi", a Cocker/Lab mix on Petfinders which had been posted by Karen. We knew immediately that this would be the perfect loving member of our family that we needed.

From the initial contact to the adoption meeting, Karen was great. Her responses to questions were very prompt and helpful and she was very flexible on meeting times for the adoption. Upon arrival, Karen and Sammi were ready and waiting in the lobby of PetSmart. After spending a few minutes with Sammi, we knew we made the right decision. Karen then helped us with the paper work, answered numerous questions, and actually helped us pick out a few supplies that we needed to get started. We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that PetSmart had supplied us with what you might call a "Starter Kit" for our new puppy, including several items that have come in handy such as play toys, litter bags, "Kong", dental treats, etc. Very nice!

We really appreciated all the work that Karen put into our adoption process and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to adopt their next pet! Thanks again Karen!

We highly recommend D&R Rescue! We had been searching for a puppy for our family for some time, and we finally found a litter of pups on PetFinder at D&R rescue. Karen was very responsive to our emails and our application. She let us know details about the litter and once our application was approved, we quickly made plans to meet at PetsMart in Terre Haute, IN. The meeting with our new pup went very well, and Karen was able to provide background info on the new puppy and answer all of our questions. After a visit with the new puppy, we decided to adopt Abby. The process was very seamless and we were provided with food, toys, a leash, treats, medical records and microchip information. Everything we needed to get set up with our new puppy at home! Karen has been responsive to our questions even post-adoption. Again, we highly recommend D&R Rescue!

Earlier this month, we went on Petfinder to look for a Black lab. We saw a sweet pup and contacted D & R Rescue Inc to get an application--Karen from D & R promptly responded to let us know the puppy had already been claimed by another family. However, we were so happy, when a few days later Karen contacted us to let us know that another puppy very similar to the other one was available for adoption. We immediately put in our application for this new pup. We were impressed by how responsive this organization was to all of our inquiries-- they reviewed our application and lets us know our status all along the way. A few days later we arranged to go meet the puppy-- Karen told us we would fall in love and she was right. It was love at first sight when we saw our puppy- he was healthy, happy, playful and gave us lots of kisses. D & R Rescue provided all health documents for our pup, he was up- to- date with his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped; we also received advice on his next vaccine needs as well as tips on how to ease his transition into our home and a great bag of food, training treats, puppy care info, toys and a leash. We are very thankful to D & R Rescue for the efficient and thoughtful adoption process of our pup. Our experience with another agency was very disheartening and D & R Rescue brought us hope again! Our puppy is the sweetest puppy and has brought so much joy to our home, he is part of our family and we love him so much already!
Many thanks D & R Rescue!

D&R RESCUE was an awesome agency to work with. Karen White, our rescue worker, was quite pleasant and we could tell she had a genuine love for pets and finding them good homes.

We recently lost our puppy dog of 10 years and even though it has been hard to push through we decided that we wanted a puppy to love and have a furever home. D & R rescue has been absolutely amazing to us from the minute we contacted them. Communication has been on spot with any questions we have. Definitely would recommend this rescue and if we decide to get another dog in the future we would definitely go thru D & R.

I had a wonderful experience adopting my dog through Karen with D & R Rescue!! She was so helpful and went out of her way to make it a great experience by answering all of our questions and providing a bed, toys, a bag of food, and more for my new fur baby. She continued to communicate with me after the adoption to make sure that it was still a good match and that I didn't have any concerns. I am all around so grateful for such an awesome experience with the adoption process! THANK YOU KAREN!!!!

Through All Paws, we found Peggy Sue at D& R All Breed Rescue. We had lost our 13-year-old Boston Terrier six months earlier, and now were ready to share our lives with another Boston, preferably an adult dog. Peggy Sue's description prompted me to call Karen who gave me excellent "vibes" plus good information. After I submitted our adoption application and was approved, we went to meet our new family member. What a positive experience! This adoption exceeded all expectations and I would do it again in a heartbeat. The 650-mile round trip between southeast Missouri and the PetSmart in Terre Haute, IN turned out to be the most beneficial of journeys. Peggy Sue fit right in, she's the queen of the house, and we're loving every minute. Thanks, Karen, for making the perfect match.

We adopted our Shihpoo, Duncan, from Karen and our experience couldn’t have been better! We found him on Petfinder and I emailed her right away for an application. I received a very prompt response and was thrilled when we were approved! Conducting an adoption long distance (we are in Tennessee) may have its challenges, but not when working with Karen. She let me know that he had been neutered and groomed, but that she really wanted to spend some time with him to make sure he would be a good fit for children (we have 4!). I received pictures and information the following day letting me know that he was a gentle, playful pup who would be a great addition to a family with kids. Karen answered all of my questions, responded to emails quickly and I felt confident that this was our dog! We made arrangements to meet at a Petsmart in Terre Haute and surprised our kids with a trip there a few days later to meet, and hopefully adopt, Duncan. Karen’s knowledge, honesty, and candor was refreshing and made us completely comfortable taking him home with us after a short meeting. We are so thrilled with our newest family member- he is everything that Karen said he was, and more. In fact, our local vet commented that she couldn’t believe we had been lucky enough to find such a remarkable pup! Karen’s experience both with dogs and in rescue makes her an ideal person to adopt from. It is clear that she is looking to make the best match for both the dog and the family. We are so grateful that our paths crossed and recommend her and her rescue completely!

I went to meet Karen on Sunday to meet a potential pup. She was great. As I was there I found myself not so sure that I was ready to adopt as I just lost my pup in December. Not sure if she felt that too but she reassured me that just because I came didn’t mean I had to take the pup and not to feel guilty about that. I sure did feel guilt. She further explained that I would know when I was ready and I would know when the right pup came along. Karen is wonderful. There was no pressure and she made this my very first attempt to adopt a great one. Thanks Karen !!! My highest recommendation to you and the wonderful thing you do for pets in need. Mickey

We found our new family member through D.R.. Molly is a sweet heart! We love her very much. She is so smart, goofy and wonderful just as Karen described.

Karen was so patient with all of our questions, texts and emails! I couldn't have picked a better organization to adopt through. It's very evident how much the dogs are cared for by D R Rescue!

Thank you for saving Molly so that we could give her forever home!

We recently adopted our puppy from D & R Rescue and Karen. Karen was great to work with. She promptly answered all emails and most helpful to us, worked with our schedule to pick up our new puppy. Who, by the way, is amazing! It was obvious our puppy had been well cared for. She was clean, crate trained, and 99% house trained. She gets along well with our other dog and is truly a joy to have in our family. I can't thank Karen enough for working with us and for the work she does taking care of rescues in need of a forever home.

My wife and I had been discussing getting a new dog/puppy for our 2 year old. We were going to wait until the spring when it was warmer, but one night while discussing, we found Luna on Petfinder.com. She was 1/2 long-haired chihuahua, which is what our previous dog of 12 years was, so right then and there we decided on the spot we wanted her. I contacted Karen and we started the process right away. I had an application in my inbox within minutes of the initial contact, and we were approved for adoption the next day. I was given the foster mom's contact info and was able to have all my questions answered. We then picked up Luna the following day. The adoption process was well explained and went very smooth and fast. For 16 weeks old, Luna is extremely well behaved and very sweet to everyone she meets. I would highly reccommend going through D & R Rescue for all your pet adoption needs.

After years debating on getting a dog, we finally decided to adopt Buddy from D&R Rescue Inc. and I could not be any happier. He is an amazing puppy! Karen was great with replying to all my questions, meeting us so we could meet Buddy, and answering any questions we had. Buddy has been healthy and such a fun loving dog. We are happy he’s in our life and couldn’t be happier with our choice of D&R Rescue Inc.

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.
