My Husky HAD Heartworms. I went the HOLISTIC APPROACH. I gave her BLACK WALNUT & ARTEMISIA COMBINATION Capsules.......by Nature's Sunshine. One of Each Capsule Twice a day . AM & PM for Two Weeks. Then give the dog ONE of each capsule daily. You can continue giving twice a week for Life .......or Put the dog on Heartguard AFTER you Get a NEGATIVE Diagnosis for Heartworms. And BELIEVE ME.........YOU WILL GET A NEGATIVE DIAGNOSIS ONCE YOU FOLLOW THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS. THE DOG WILL LIVE. The Heartworms are SLOWLY being Killed upon the first dosage of treatment

This is the first (and likely only) dog rescue in which the founders remodeled their entire home for dog rescue (that I have seen). Rooms set aside to foster multiple dogs, that I have seen from many kind people. And on the IRS form 990s, the executive officers (i.e. the founders) do not receive any compensation, also noteworthy. Note: Payment of compensation is common as executive officers are often involved in daily operations, and they need funds so they may eat and have shelter. And especially noteworthy for this rescue as they remodeled their entire home.

I first learned about Danny & Ron when I watched the documentary, “Life in the Dog House”. They have devoted their lives to rescuing dogs❤️ They take them into their own home, give them any needed medical attention and lots of love until they find them forever homes. They have saved thousands of dogs from unspeakable conditions . They continue to inspire me with their huge hearts and compassion for animals. I watch their impact grow as they not only rescue but educate.

Amazing organization! The love and care for these animals by Danny, Ron and their staff is wonderful. If you haven’t viewed, “Life in a Dog House,” please watch it. You will laugh and cry and will be deeply toughed by the documentary. I am now a member of the Monthly Mutts Club.

I will be furever grateful to Danny and Ron’s Rescue for uniting me with one of the best dogs ever! I reached out to them when a friend forwarded her picture to me. They responded immediately to let me know she was being fostered by a friend of mine in FL. Small world! The adoption process went smoothly and even assisted with getting her a ride to CT. Thank you to Danny and Ron and their network of volunteers and supporters!

Purtroppo non conosco personalmente queste due meravigliose persone, ho visto il loro docufilm sulla piattaforma Netflix ed ora il mio più grande desiderio è volare negli stati uniti a conoscerli. Amo gli animali ed in particolare i cani, Danny e Ron sono sensibili ed empatici in modo stupendo e fanno un lavoro spettacolare. Grazie.

The first exposure I had to Danny and Ron’s rescue was when I first watched their documentary. Their message resonates true compassion and service to and for animals. I purchased a copy of their documentary “My Life in the Doghouse” and share it all the time that has moved several to adopt from rescue shelters or the local humane society. I donate to their work as Ron and Danny are angels on earth❣️

Danny and Ron are dogs angels on Earth. They will go as far as needed to ensure a dog has a fur ever home. Each pup is taught love, care, and socialized. Danny & Ron have committed to each getting a home; even if that means they remain a member of the dog house. They teach children, adults and pups that we all belong together helping each other.

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!

I first learned of their rescue efforts from their movie"in the Doghouse". I am so impressed with their hands on efforts at disaster recovery situations where animals are often forgotten. Living with their animals is a special experience for the animals. As an animal lover I said all they do for dogs

The kindness and compassion Danny and Ron show is only matched by their innate ability to place their dogs in the perfect home. Andy came to live with us a year ago to fill an empty spot in our home. Danny and Ron has rehabilitated him from a car accident/surgery and knew instantly we were his people. The love they’ve shown us and Andy is unmatched and the service they lovingly provide their charges is above reproach. I can think of no two finer gentlemen and human beings than these two animal angels!

I support the work of Danny and Ron’s rescue, because they completely give of themselves in order to help dogs find good, loving homes. I have the privilege of knowing these two gentle and kind men, through the equestrian world. They are the definition of “gentlemen”, in every sense of the word. Passionate about the rescue, Danny and Ron put the dogs above themselves, often sacrificing personal pleasures, for the sake of their rescue work. I have supported Danny and Ron’s Rescue, financially, for a few years now. And in addition, I also give when there is a dog with a special need. I do this with no reservations, knowing my money is used responsibly, to help needy dogs. Passionate about their work in every way, I don’t think there are two bigger hearted people anywhere, than Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta.

My German Shepherd had to have surgery. I didn't know how I was going to pay for it. I did a Go Fund Me page and Danny & Ron's Rescue who didn't even know me saw it and called the vet and paid my bill in full!!! I am so grateful for these two men. I am starting a second job in the next week to hopefully pay them back in full. This is an exceptional rescue. Love and thanks for all that you two do. If you can't adopt - please, please donate.

This organization is amazing. Led by courageous and inspiring men who have made it their life work to encourage people to rescue and adopt instead of purchasing dogs. They work diligently matching the right home for the right dog. We have two Ron and Danny rescues who I can't imagine life without.

Danny and Ron, Saw you guys on the 9 o'clock show. I have so much respect for what you all do. I live in the Gaston/Swansea area of SC and have been involved in rescuing horses and dogs. I would like to donate, but want to make sure it is going to you. I don't completely understand how this works. I want to wish you all Merry Christmas as well as the volunteers and puppy dogs! Pam

About 3 years ago I found the love of my life "Harvey" through Danny & Ron's Rescue.

In the past 10 years my life has taken some turns that I could never have anticipated. I've moved twice after living in the same place for over 20 years, I've sold my family's home of almost 200 years, I've bought a new home & sold it & then bought another & renovated it...but the biggest challenge or change is that my Mother (who has Alzheimers) now lives with me.

To say that life is different is an understatement. It's an emotional rollercoaster. So, in an effort to maybe calm things down & to give my Mom a companion for her long days, I thought we would adopt a dog. My long time friend Kim had been telling me about Danny & Ron's Rescue where she had been helping out for sometime. She had said "just let me know when you're ready & I'll find you the perfect dog". So, I called Kim & gave her the green light. It wasn't long before got a message from her that she had found him. His name was "Harley" & he was a 7 year old maltese/poodle mix.

A few days later "Harley" arrived with Kim after a long drive up to NJ. In the days that led up to his arrival I had lamented over his name.....how could I have a 11 lb., white maltipoo with the name "Harley"? He looked like a rabbit! & there it was....I'd rename him "Harvey" just like the Jimmy Stewart movie.

"Harvey" couldn't be more perfect! He is love. He brings light into every dark moment in my life & has done so from the minute he arrived. My intentions of providing my Mom with a companion went out the window shortly after we got him home. He decided he was mine & that was all there was to it. I think he loves my Mom but I'm his. He follows around me like a lamb. When I leave for work he bids me good buy & when I return he there to announce my arrival. I have never know such complete love. He is perfect.

So, in rating Kim for her talent of identifying the perfect fit.....5 stars
Danny & Ron's Rescue for all they do to provide for those 4 legged babies that can't provide for themselves.....5 stars

I am for ever grateful for the love they've brought into my life!

Danny and Ron's Rescue takes otherwise hard-to-adopt dogs and provides a great home for them (in an actual home) until they can be adopted to loving homes of their own-this includes medical and social rehab as needed. If the dog can't find a forever home, then it will live out its days at Danny and Ron's home in South Carolina. The rescue is well run by folks who are in it for the right reasons and care very deeply about the animals they rescue. If you want to learn more about their rescue, there is a new documentary out called Life In The Doghouse which explains how the rescue came to be and a background on its founders Danny and Ron.

Danny and Ron's rescue has such a special place in the heart of me and my family. These 2 men are angels. The love they have for dogs is unmatched. I truly believe they live to continue their work of saving every dog they can. I have helped and worked with other rescue groups and although most of them have the best of intentions, Danny and Ron are in a class by themselves. Wish I could give 10 stars.

Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta along with their wonderful team are the absolute most genuine people in rescue that I've ever met .I have fostered for them and adopted a dog as well .I have seen Ron at the vet with an armful of dogs on more than one occasion . I honestly cannot say enough good things about them. They are truly Angel's to the dogs they rescue and really love what they do!!
