Danny and Ron have found countless loving homes for GOOD dogs, and I am lucky enough to have found surely one of their best ever to have come home to live with us. In particular, as I live on a farm, I had found it difficult to adopt from rescue agencies who had requirements designed for suburban living. We adore our Bentley and four years after spotting his photo on Danny and Ron's Facebook page, I can't imagine what life would be like without him to help me on my daily chores. They are wonderful, kind, knowledgable people and I am so glad they were there for Bentley when he needed them, and for letting him come to live with me.

I have had the privilege of working as a volunteer and foster mom w/Danny and Ron for the past 5 years. The caring, quality and love they put into each and every dog is a strong testament to who they are as people and dedicated animal advocates. They go above and beyond time and time again. A truly superb organization run by superb folks

My mother and I got our perfect pup from Danny & Ron's Rescue over 10 years ago and we couldn't be happier. We asked Danny and Ron for something small, hypoallergenic and good around horses and they delivered! We love our little pup Joey and I know I'll be adopting from them again when the time comes for me to get a dog of my own.

There is no rescue like Danny and Rons rescue. These are the two most selfless men I know who would give anything and everything they have to help these poor, sick, abused and homeless dogs. Thousands of the luckiest dogs in the world were saved by Danny and Ron and now have forever homes. Including 8 of my own

These are very dedicated individuals that are located in a community of caring animal lovers . I had the opportunity to see how animals were placed with perspective owners
They made sure that the dogs they were placing were going into homes corresponding with not only the personalities and needs of the dog but also with the life style of the adoptive family and their current pets and children that would have contact with the adoptive pet

When he digs are rescued they live with these dogs and care for them before placing them to see what their needs are .
Their volunteers that help are enthusiastic and caring .
This is an authentic caring group of people that have changed the lives of dogs they have rescued and the families that have come to love them.
I give them a five star as they are hands on and all Monies raised are put into the rescue of these animals .

I adopted my dog from Danny and Ron's Rescue. They are by far the best rescue! All of their dogs are "family" as they live in the house with Danny and Ron. I love, love, love my rescue dog, Sketch! He is such a sweet boy. Danny and Ron show each and every rescue such tender loving care and work hard to see that their needs are met until they go to their forever homes. I can't say enough good things about this rescue where every dog is treated like a "top dog", never to be homeless again!

This rescue is truly amazing and rescues so many dogs each year saving them from abuse and neglect. Danny and Ron are both so dedicated to their work. I have 2 special dogs from them and I think they saved me more than I saved them. I can't imagine my life without them.

There are not enough words to describe the Founders, Staff and volunteers at Danny & Rons Rescue. When you call and say "I have this dog in dire need of help"' the answer is always "I'll take him/her". When you're at a shelter picking up 2 dogs and find 2 more little ones who are shaking and scared because of the big barking dogs around them and you call Ron, you will always hear "bring them too". This is their home. The kitchen is filled with dogs, As is every room! When you walk in, this is home with dogs being loved, hugged and cared for.

When the local shelter was closed for Distemper Virus, there they stand taking dogs from owners who need to surrender their loved ones. Just to be sure no dog becomes abandoned elsewhere or put in a worse situation.

You don't worry about answering the scrutinizing questions most rescues ask like "Are they HW Positive? Have they been spayed/neutered? Up to date on vaccines?" Because all the dogs will go directly to the vets office for a complete exam, vaccines and treatment as necessary to begin the road to perfect health.

When they took a trailer load of supplies to Louisiana shelters because of the floods that affected so many vast areas, they come back with 32 dogs who would have been euthanized because they were not adopted prior to the flooding. They had to make room for the incoming animals. Danny and Ron had to bring them home. I received A call for volunteers to meet the van on Saturday morning. Many people showed up to bathe, love and help them get settled in. The staff was prepared to deal with the number of dogs and volunteers in such an efficient manner we were done in no time. They even received collars with their new names! Monday morning again the staff and volunteers met at the vets office where every dog received an exam, vaccines, a new chart created for each, meds if needed. It was amazing to be a part of this well organized group!

These people do this out of their own pockets and hearts, with help from the public by fundraising and donations. Mostly out of their own pockets though. If you have ever had any doubt about who to donate to or who deserves the help, please go to YouTube and look at The Dog House videos. They will show you their home and every room is filled with dogs. They share their home, personal money and time to ensure every dog is healthy and every adopter is appropriately matched with their forever baby. If, for any reason, the match is not suitable the dog can, without question or retribution, go back to the doghouse.

These people are angels on earth. PLEASE consider donating to this wonderful organization!!!

Danny and Ron's rescue is a wonderful organization to work for. It brings so many deserving dogs to wonderful homes filled with love they may never have known otherwise. To witness firsthand a dog coming in not being able to move because of mats covering their body, blind due to years of neglect, heart worm positive because they were never given medication to prevent something so easily preventable, and afraid to be touched because they don't know love from a human hand, sometimes it's hard to see. Danny and Ron believe in helping these animals to recover and heal from these terrible conditions and once they have reached their goal and can be adopted they must be matched with the perfect forever home. I thought watching the dogs leave with their new owners would make me sad, honestly it has been so rewarding to see the dogs jumping up on their new owner and even the new owners shedding a tear or two because of the happiness and love they receive from their special new rescue dog. If you are lucky enough to work for them you become one of he family, you are cared for, and sometimes rescued as well.

I have fostered for Danny and Ron's rescue and have also adopted from their rescue as well. They are a top notch organization and truly share a passion for the dogs they rescue. I also live in Camden and have been to their home where the dogs live. The people who work for them are caring as well. I can't say enough good things about them except that I am glad that they exist. If you are looking to donate to a great rescue you have found one in Danny and Ron's rescue.

Our story is simple. We were desperately lonely after the loss of our beloved "Bear" a Schipperke. We finally decided it was time to seek another companion. I called around and was referred to Danny and Ron. I talked to Ron and asked if we could come that very day to look at adoptable dogs, and in a few minutes we were on our way to their home in SC. We were amazed at the number of adoptable dogs they had, and at the friendliness of the dogs. They were obviously well caared for and loved. We looked at several when my husband saw a little brown one outside. The caretaker there brought her in telling us she had come from Missouri and was somewhat afraid. I took her and held her and she immediately crawled up my shoulder and proceeded to smother me with puppy kisses. I handed her to my husband and she did the same thing! I said I think we have bonded and my husband agreed. We took her home that very day.

At the time we didn't know what breed she was or much about her. We learned she was a Chihuahua and her name was Susie Q, which really didn't maatter to us as we knew she was the one! Needless to say, this little 9 lb. brown girl, full of life and fun, has mended our broken hearts and filled our lives with joy! We consider her a God-gift! We are thankful to Danny and Ron for bringing us together. They are personable and care about their clients and their dogs! Many thanks! We love Susie so much, and she loves us!

Danny and Ron's rescue is an amazing place. Danny and ron, the volunteers that selfless give their time are the real heros. They are amazing people. They give their time up to rehabilitate these wonderful animals. These animals who have seen, experienced or witness horrors and felt tragedy. Animals that came from abusive, neglectful homes or the owners were just unable to care for then anymore. These dogs, after experienced this, changed, and these two guys want to help these animals to be happy. They open their home and give these animals a safe haven, a home too, until they are ready to open their hearts again. Not just do they open their home, but their wallets too. they love these animals so strongly, that they make sure that these fur babies get excellent veterinarian care and the procedures they desperately need. I have and will continue, to recommend this rescue to everyone and anyone I know or meet!

Almost every dog we ever have had has been a rescue. I have also worked in equine rescue and dog rescue and can tell you that Danny and Ron's Rescue is exceptional in every way! We adopted a pekingese from Danny and Ron's Rescue in September 2012. They arranged the transportation from SC to NY and everything went very smoothly! Our new little dog was exactly as they had described him.....only better! We loved the experience so much that we adopted our second dog in November 2012 and again....the experience was amazing. Ron was concerned that we might not understand Kosmo's needs so before we adopted him I had a long conversation with Ron and could hear the compassion and concern in his voice. He didn't want to misrepresent the dog and have it returned and us unhappy. We are thrilled! We love Kosmo and because of Ron's conversation we have made adjustments so that Kosmo is happy and healthy.....and our 2 new dogs have their forever homes because of Danny and Ron! The entire staff is amazing and our only problem is.........we don't have a house big enough to adopt more! Thank you Danny and Ron for your love and compassion for the animals that need you and this tireless, often times thankless job called rescue!

Ron and Danny do an exceptional job. From saving those that need saving, to making sure that each match is the correct home for the dog AND the owner, they go above and beyond the call. I have a great DRR dog, my sister has a great DRR dog, and one of our elderly friends was matched with the perfect companion dog from DRR. This is an exceptional rescue. They are making sure that the right dog goes to the right owner so everyone can be happy. If only everything in life was this wonderful!

Danny and Ron are two extrodinary men who have dedicated their lives to rescuing abused and neglected dogs. My fiance' Russ and I have adopted 4 of the most wonderful dogs ever. There is nothing more rewarding then coming home to happy barks, wagging tails and doggies kisses! These dogs are the loves of our lives, and they have also revived my 14 year old Brittney ... she thoroughly enjoys her new brother and sisters. I would also like to say, besides Danny and Ron, there are three of the most amazing women I know ... Karen, Jennifer and Kim who help tremendously with the care, fundraising, etc. for this wonderful organization. Bottom line ... it's all about the dogs, giving them the love and care they deserve and in return they give back unconditional love. If you want a new fur-baby in your life, this is the place to find that special dog!!
