Our family has been so impressed with IDR since we became associated with them in 2008. That is when we brought our Doberman, Jace, home to live with us. From the very beginning, Jace's transfer to us was treated as a top priority and the care/attention to detail they provided to him was exceptional. We were so happy to give him a home and just as happy to learn he was rescued and cared for by IDR, the treatment he received there was wonderful! They do so much for Dobermans and other animals.

Review from Guidestar
As a volunteer, I am careful about where I give my time. I am so pleased that I chose to spend it helping IDR+! The organization is well-run by a group of talented, knowledgeable volunteers who truly care about animals. All of the volunteers I have met are dedicated, even when faced with the difficult aspects of rescue. As far as adoptions are concerned, the fact that there are repeat adopters, and adopters who become volunteers, speaks for itself.
After adopting the best dog I have ever known from IDR+, I decided to give back by becoming a volunteer. This rescue is professional, thorough and thoughtful and they do everything they can for each animal that they take in and adopt out. Even after the adoption, IDR+ is there for adopters and their pets. With fundraisers, meet and greets and other events and activities IDR+ is more than just a rescue, they are a family.
This organization is superb. I volunteer with them because they always go the extra mile for every animal!
We adopted a doberman from this rescue earlier this year and have been so happy with the experience! They are quite thorough and want to make sure the dogs are not only going to a good home but are a good fit for each family. They are an amazing group of volunteers who help so many animals - not just doberman! They take in many sick dogs and make sure they all get the treatment they need. I would refer anyone I knew that was looking for a new pet to Illinois Doberman Rescue.
IDR does great work on behalf of all animals, including those that are sickly and old. I have fostered/provided temporary space for a number of dogs through IDR, most of whom have ended up as foster failures with me. These dogs were brought to my attention after they had been rescued by IDR. (They also rescue cats, guinea pigs and more!)
The people are great too--knowledgeable and selfless. The network of volunteers contribute so much of themselves to ensure this organization makes a difference in the lives of animals.
