I adopted my beautiful girl Jade almost 6 years ago from DRDR - Diana Peters has dedicated her life to saving the lives of so many precious animals and I feel blessed to know her. When I see all the pics of happy rescues with their new forever families I know these dogs are alive and happy thanks to Diana saving the from horrible fates. Many of our rescue dogs come with "pre-existing conditions" from their previous lives but I think we love them even more for it and I believe that they know it why our bond with them is so special..

Diana the owner of Death Row Dog Rescue is such a nice human being people try to take her down just because there feelings get hurt because they are not the right people for that dog. I volunteered at her shelter today and i could not have asked for a better experience if anyone says anything about her being rude and disrespectful it’s just because they are jealous. The difference between any other shelter and hers is that she saves the dogs from not only being killed but by giving them them all the love she can. People hate on her just because they get mad because they can’t get the dogs that they want or because they are not the right people. She does not want these poor dogs to get abused again or mistreated and she does this by making sure every person is the right person for that dog. Another difference is that normal big shelters are so big and the animals are still in cages and don’t get as much love as they would if they were with Diana. Honestly Diana is such a nice human being who dedicates her time for all these dogs that without her would be dead. AND if Diana was to kill dogs than she wouldn’t save them from getting killed. So if you did not qualify for one of her dogs she is a professional and she knows what she’s doing. So if that is you don’t be mad at her because she is doing it for the dogs. She has saved so much dogs and has given money time and effort to each of these dogs and that to me is a very good human being. GOD BLESS YOU And have a great day hope this lifts you up and remember don’t let the people who want to bring you down get in your head EVER!. ❤️♥️

I came across this rescue over 5 years ago. I met a girl with a small puppy, begging anyone to take it because she could not keep it. So I did. Poor thing had ring worm on it's head and loaded with fleas. While I could not keep it, I knew there was a better place for this baby. That's when i was referred to Death Row Dog Rescue. Diana gladly took in the little guy and got him well. She even found him a great new home! She IS for the animals, and anyone that knows her, knows this is true.

People will try to tarnish a good name because their feelings get hurt. When in reality they are only making the animals suffer.

Diana, who is the owner of Death Row Dog Rescue, used to live in Miami-Dade County. She supposedly decided to leave after death dogs were found in the freezer and in her backyard. She then relocated to Broward County Florida. People said puppies were removed from her property covered in tar, infested with ticks and anemic. It was around this time period that she said she needed money for a dog whose photo she put on her website. She said she had the dog. Another person discovered that the photo was from a magazine published in Europe and she did not have the dog. In an attempt to convince people that she was not a scam artist, she went on a radio show. But, during that show she admitted that she does not have a job so she lives off of the money people donate to Death Row Dog Rescue. The "rescue" is the house she is the tiny house she is living in. In an attempt to get more money, she said that she needed money to pull dogs from a pound. She then said she had one of the dogs and needed money for its care. In actuality, she did not have the dog. It was located in a Georgia shelter but she still claimed to have it and people gave her money. Whenever people would point out her lies on the Facebook page for Death Row Dog Rescue she would delete the comments and block the people from posting. This causes money to goto her instead of rescues that don't have credibility problems. The Miami Dade Animal Shelter and Broward County Animal Shelter have both written emails saying Diana aka Death Row Dog Rescue, is BANNED from pulling/adopting/getting dogs from those shelters but Diana still requests money on her Facebook page and claims she needs the money to save dogs from the shelters. People posted the shelters' emails saying Diana aka Death Row Dog Rescue is BANNED but Diana once again deleted the posts and blocked the posters.

They speak for those who have no voice. They not only save those fur babies who need it the most, but also human souls by allowing them to open their hearts to love, to care, to adore those fur babies. They deserve all the help they can get because that help translates in saving lives of those beautiful fur babies!!

This wonderful lady Diana Peters goes to a high kill shelter and tries to get as many dogs off the death row as she can. We got our dog from her..she got him the day he was to be put down..she nursed him back to good health, there were many dogs there and they were all so happy, playing and scamping around in a spotless environment. There was so much love and caring at her facility. I would not hesitate to patronize her again if I decide to get another dog. My dog was well mannered, housebroken fully vetted all thanks to Diana.. Our dog id a wonderful healthy girl
