My husband was looking for a dog for me, as he thought it would help my anxiety issues. He came across Multiple Breed Rescue in December 2015 when he was searching for a Yorkie mix. He immediately contacted MBR, who had a Yorkie/Jack Russell Terrier Mix for adoption. Everyone involved was so kind and helpful and we ended up adopting Josie about a week later. Unfortunately, Josie has gone on to the Rainbow Bridge, but since then we have adopted 2 other rescues from MBR and they are both wonderful dogs. Multiple Breed Rescue has made such an impact on us that we volunteer our time as a family to help out with the dogs as needed and are hoping to foster one day soon as well. They really are with you for the life of your dog and they treat you like family. The owner, Amy, is always ready to help and has offered us great advice about our dogs. I highly recommend looking into their adoptable dogs if you are looking for a furry companion. This is a great rescue that truly loves these dogs.

We adopted Nida from MBR almost two years ago. This organization is extremely passionate, caring, professional and knowledgeable. They made sure when we adopted Nida that she was a good fit for our family. When looking to adopt a pet I highly recommend and trust MBR.

We adopted our dog from MBR in 2012 and she is the light of our lives! MBR rescued Delilah from the pound in, I think, Stark County. She was on the “kill list” because she would not interact with people coming through looking for a dog to adopt, she would only huddle in the back corner of the cage because she was terrified. MBR pulled her from the pound and had her spayed, then put in in foster home where she was housebroken and socialized (her foster family day did an amazing job!) What I love the most about t MBR is that their job doesn’t end when a dog is adopted, they are always there to support and help the adopters in any way can. This is an amazing group of people!

I got my Puppy from MBR almost exactly a year ago to the day. I appreciated their application process and dedication to matching a family and dog, and not allowing an adoption that isn’t a good fit. I was so impressed, I began to volunteer with them as well. This group is AMAZING. They are truly in it to save lives. We take dogs no one else will, due to the medical bills
Or training that may be required. They stick to their word, even taking 4 parvo puppies, who they agreed to take in (pre-parvo diagnosis). Those medical bills were astronomical, but MBR Didn’t even flinch. Even better, is that in their contract, they insist any dog
Who may be rehomed MUST come back to the rescue. No independent rehoming. They track the dogs until they pass away. MBR has an active Facebook page where members can post pics, questions, or other related dog info and receive genuine, thoughtful advice and answers. They have connections in any animal related area (vets, trainers, wardens, shelters, sanctuaries, etc etc etc). This group is hands down 5/5 perfect. I’d recommend them to ANYONE looking to adopt a dog (or pig, as they currently have a pig up for adoption too!).

My experiences with MBR have changed my life for the better!
I adopted Millie, a Basset mix "hospice" dog who has had an adventurous & happy life for the past 4 1/2 yrs & is going strong! And Shaggy, a senior Yorkie mix, who opened my eyes to what it means to persevere under adversity, having recovered from paralysis. We have received an abundance of support from this Group & I have gained many friends! What I love is that when you Adopt from MBR, you are supported & encouraged & are free to ask questions related to the care of your pet. It is a family of dog (and all animal) lovers & rescuers. I thank God for bringing MBR into my life!

Multiple Breed Rescue is AMAZING! When we decided to start looking for another dog to add to our family, we spoke with several rescue groups. By far, MBR Ohio was the best one we found. They are organized, well-run by awesome volunteers, and focused on the mission of saving animals. The two things that I think are the most important attributes of this rescue group are their dedication of matching animals and humans for the right forever fit and the unending support they offer adopters. I was impressed that that they not only follow-up with adopters, but they truly go above and beyond. I'm confident that if I needed to, I could contact them in two years with an issue, and they would do what they could to help out. I've spoken with other adopters, and they have had similar experiences. We're so happy that they saved our precious Melrose, and we're so grateful to have her in our family. MBR Ohio rocks, and I can't say enough good things about them.

This organization has it all, caring members, and amazing supporters. Dogs are living in homes . With loving foster families and having all their needs met including training. So when, they are adopted it makes the transition easier. Theres so much support, Including a free training class once a month. This rescue really cares about their animals and it shows.

About 11 years ago I realised I needed a little something extra in my life and decided that fostering a dog was helping and doing something good for a dog in need. I had fostered for another rescue before finding MBR. I reached out to MBR because I already had two dogs and lived in a small house so I was looking for a small breed dog to foster. My first foster with MBR was a pure bred JRT male. He was beautiful. He loved to play with balls. I decided to call him Eddie while he was staying with me. I had grown very fond of Eddie and was considering adopting him myself when I got the call that he had been adopted by a young woman with other JRT’s. Eddie instantly fell in love with her and I knew I was doing the right thing for him by giving him to a good home.
Then it was time for another foster. She was also a JRT. She was not potty trained, very shy, had many many fears, and just seemed very withdrawn. I spent many hours, days and weeks working with her trying to build up confidence. Teaching her to go potty outside. And not fear absolutely everything. Slowly, I was growing attached to her as it had been nearly a month that I had been caring for her. I was told that she had someone interested in her, but then they changed their mind. I knew I could never let her go, and right then decided to add her to my now growing dog family of three. I’ve never regretted my decision, in fact I couldn’t be happier. Maggie is still a part of our family. She is a very happy 12 yr. old little girl with more spunk and spitfire than ever. And today, I don’t think there is anything she fears, except maybe a bad thunderstorm.
Fostering for me was very rewarding. I enjoyed every minute of it. I enjoyed all the dogs I got to meet and care for. And I especially enjoyed the one I got to keep.

I reached out to Multiple Breed Rescue after having a few less-than-great communications with rescue organizations in my city. MBR brought Penelope into my life, and nothing has been the same since! The application process was very easy- everything I needed was spelled out right in front of me. All my questions were answered quickly, my application was processed quickly, and within 2 days I was on my way to pick up my baby girl! Now, MBR is the only place I recommend to people when they say they’re looking to add to their family!

MBR is always there for an animal in need! I got my two jack russels from them over 10 years ago and even though I live 2500 miles away now I still keep in touch with what Amy and her crew are up too now, and help where I can!

I adopted 2 jack Russell's from Amy, she was always there even years later when I had issues with my dogs. They really care about what's best for the dog and the family. I've never met a more hard working crew of people!!

I love that they never leave a mom or dad dog behind. If they are taking puppies, they are taking the whole family! And they take a lot of medical cases which is expensive. But they do it and do it very well.

I first became aware of MBR last year when I adopted my dog in nov of 2016. After I saw the volunteers, and all their wonderful people, I decided to volunteer. What a great organization. It is truly amazing to see such great people left in our world. Everyone takes time out of their busy schedules to help innocent dogs find homes and a better life.

In April my mother and I traveled from Michigan to a MBR adoption event. My mother completed the adoption application beforehand and adopted an older Jack Russell named Cookie at that event. Cookie has been her perfect companion. They walk all over her neighborhood and all of the kids know and love Cookie. So many thanks to MBR for rescuing Cookie and mending my mom's broken heart after the loss of her 13 year old Jack Russell.

We rescued a dog about a year and a half ago through them and they are nothing short of amazing at what they do! They are very careful who they match with a particular dog. They make sure to do everything possible to make sure that the dog is going to the best home possible. Love them! Will definitely adopt from them again!!

My son wanted to donate his Christmas money to animals. My friends volunteered for MBR . We went to check out some events and volunteered to play with some dogs. My son fell in love right away. I loved how the organization is run. Very professional!

I would recommend anyone looking to add to their family:. To check MBR FIRST.

We recently adopted our second dog from Multiple Breed Rescue. They are so good to work with, proving information on the dog's temperament, vet records, and assistance with training. We love our Ellie and Maddie! Thanks MBR!

Multiple breed rescue is a great organization. They help rescue dogs, foster them and then find them a forever home. They just don't get dogs from shelters. My story I had a Belgian Malinois name Maya that was living the life of a lazy dog and not the life of a working dog like she was meant to do. They took her for me and promised they would find her the right home and would not let her go to a home that wasn't qualified to take her. It took a few weeks but the right person came along and she is now in North Carolina with a police department training to be a Narcotics dog and living the life she was meant to live. Thank you MBR!

Our beloved jack Russell Sparks died in April 2016. We were so sad and heartbroken and 5 mos. later my arms ached for another sweet baby. I started looking at rescues when I came across Multiple Breed Rescue . I was unsure at first, but as I researched the group, Amy (Founder) and read more and more about each, I realized that this was where I would find my next fur baby. What this group does for animals is phenomenal. They are making a difference in not only the animals lives but in the lives of the people who choose to adopt them. I believe that my Lily rescued me. Even though I am sure she would beg to differ. So I'll concede, and just simply say that we rescued one another and that every day we continue to do so.

We were blessed to find MBR and adopt Bruce into our family 4 weeks ago. The support, professionalism and thoroughness of MBR is truly amazing. They offer weekly free training sessions, continued support and education through their website. One of the best experiences with adopting a pooch ever!
