About 4 years ago I walked into a pet store and there was an adoption event going on. I fell in love with my Penny and applied for her. Within a day my references were called and someone contacted me for a home check. The process was very smooth and professional. I adopted my Penny the following week. I was asked would I want to foster. I didn't think I could do that because I would want to keep all the dogs. I thought about fostering and decided to give it a try. Well about 127 foster dogs later I am still fostering. I have adopted 6 dogs from One Love Animal Rescue, these are dogs that I have fostered. As a volunteer and foster I find that everyone is very helpful, if there is a problem with a dog there is always someone you can reach out to. The group works together to find the best fit possible for the dogs that come into the rescue, it's not first come first serve, they really try to find the home that the dog or cat would live out the rest of their life in. I recommend One Love to everyone, people in the vet office, at the supermarket and even while out walking my dogs or a foster dog. This is a great organization and I hope we can continue to save more and more animals in the years to come.

I had such a positive experience adopting our dog Ginger! I could tell from the beginning that this is a rescue that truly cares about the needs of each individual animal they place in a home. They were careful to match the right dog with the right family. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the adoption process was well organized and thorough. Lauren Lamb at One Love was so personable and a pleasure to work with in adopting one of her foster dogs “Ginny” (now Ginger). This rescue is careful and committed to following up with their rescue families to ensure each animal is being properly cared for and thriving in their new home.

My wife and I wanted to foster a dog first to see if they were compatible with our sons dogs. We found one love rescue and contacted them about fostering a dog. They came out to the house to see where the dog would be, asked questions about our dog history did background tests and all went well. Three weeks later they contacted us about a dog they just got in. Murphy was an American Fox Hound we saw pictures and his history and we decided to foster him. That was 6 weeks ago we have adopted him and he has been a welcome addition to our home and . One love was extremely helpful and answered all or questions and called frequently to see how Murphy was doing and how we were doing. One Love rescue REALLY cares about these animals they foster and it warms the heart to know these poor animals have an advocate as great as One Love. We have recommended them to friends and family LOVE THEM. Julius Scaramuzzi

I am so happy that a neighbor told me about the One Love Animal Rescue. We had been wanting to rescue a dog for months when we found one on One Love. The pup we were interested in had a health concern and would not be ready for adoption but One love worked to find us the best match. The process was very thorough. After completing the application I was contacted by a team a people and even had to do a virtual tour of my home and yard. Only after I was approved could we meet with our dog to see if we were a match. Yes!! we were! Luc is such a sweet playful pup and we are so happy. I feel the vetting process that One Love uses is very professional and keeps the dogs best interest at heart. Luc is now in our hearts thanks to One Love.

Absolutely amazing rescue group! So kind, patient and full of knowledge! When we decided to add a second fur baby to our family, One Love Rescue popped up with the sweetest girl. The application , home study and meet & greet process went so smooth. I also loved how Dawn was always very helpful with any questions I might have had. One love will always be a top recommendation from me when family/ friends are looking to recuse. Thank you for our sweet, attention loving (lol!) little lady.

Dawn could not have made the adoption any easier. When we saw Cozmo on their website, my husband said we have to meet him. We had just lost our 16 year old dog, so I had a soft spot for seniors which is what Cozmo was. We met him for the first time and he was so shy and kept staying by Dawn. I sat on the floor hoping he would come by me, he finally did. He gave me a lick on the cheek and I knew he was the one.

We were going on vacation in a couple of weeks so we asked Dawn if she could keep him until we got back and she said no problem.

We went and visited him a second time with my in laws and Dawn welcomed us in for the visit without hesitation.

Cozmo has now been with us for 3 1/2 years and he is the best dog!!

One Love really cares about these animals. They make sure they are healthy and the right fit. I would recommend them to adopt your next best friend!

Adopt, Don’t Shop!

I adopted my son Walter from One Love. He is the greatest joy of my life. I appreciate how diligent the team was at making sure the animals go to a safe, comfortable and loving home for both the animal and the family. Walter is the best dog I’ve ever owned and was healthy and clean upon adoption. The team clearly cares SO much about their pets and were incredibly thorough and informative. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you for connecting me with my best friend!

Dawn and her team truly have a passion for saving good and putting them into great homes. I started as a foster and ended up adopting my foster dog, Kaci. The whole process was thorough and considerate of the the foster and pet. Each team member made each process seamless and I felt great about both fostering and adopting from One Love. If you are looking for the right fit for your adoption needs this is the team you want to work with.

We adopted our second dog Cookie from this rescue, and the experience had been amazing! They were very thorough in making sure the needs of the dogs and the adoptive family were met — we had multiple meetings and home checks to ensure that the environment was right, and that she got along with our first dog. We knew exactly what to expect, and the rescue was responsive to our questions before and after. I highly recommend them to anyone considering adoption, because the support and the attention given to dogs and to adopters are unparalleled anywhere. Their fosters are also professional and dedicated.

This is the best rescue around!!! I was looking on so many adoption sites for another dog after our Penelope crossed the rainbow bridge. No one would get back to me or even answer any questions, some would answer after my persistence and say fill out an application..but I just have a question!!! One Love not only got back to me quickly, they were the warmest, most caring people..who loved each and every dog like it was their child!!! Their efforts always go beyond the call of duty for every animal they rescue...they are unstoppable getting to that animal that needs them!! I adopted Newt four ago..then I adopted One Love and became a volunteer.

What sets One Love Animal Rescue Group Inc apart from other rescues is their compassion for animals. They will do whatever is best for the dogs. They are with you the whole way through. I've fostered a few dogs with them and adopted through them as well.

In November of 2016 I had to put my dog down of 14 1/2 years. It was a very hard time for me. My neighbor ran into a couple who were fosters for One Love Animal Rescue. They were at the vet with a papillon chichuhua named Jack who was an owner surrender and afraid of his shadow and per the foster’s not really treated well. I filled out an application and met with the couple who were fostering Jack. I held him in my arms and I knew he had chosen me. A couple of months later I thought Jack could use a furry friend. So I called the people who had fostered Jack and they said they had the perfect match for Jack and introduced me to Max. Jack is about 16 pounds and Max is 5.6 pounds. It was and is a match made in Heaven. They are always together and you would think they were together all their life. I loved this organization so much that I became a volunteer and a foster. It’s amazing to see a dog come to life again once they are show. So much deserved love. After a few successful adoptions , I was fostering my one eyed wonder senior chi named Dexter who stole my heart and my rat pack loved him as much as me and now I have three.
I can’t say enough good things about One Love Animal Rescue. So many experienced fosters and all the dogs they take in get the medical care they need.

They did a very thorough investigation before I was able to adopt my Duffy. They also take very good care of their rescues and you have a meet and greet before adopting so that they can see if the rescue animal is compatible with the family. Very dedicated organization.

One of the best things I’ve ever done is checking out One Love when my family wanted to adopt a dog. They are very thorough in making sure the right family gets the right dog.

They came to our house beforehand, and then we got to meet our dog, Raven. The foster made it clear that if she was too much for us to bring her back. We never even thought about that. We took her to the vet 2 days after we got her, and she had a clean bill of health.

That was four and a half years ago, and this beautiful girl is one of the family! I can’t say enough good things about One Love!!!

I have adopted two wonderful dogs now through them. Both amazing fits for our family. They foster dogs in homes so they know exactly what personality the dog has and who their best matches would be .

This rescue does an outstanding job of matching dogs with their potential adopters through a robust application process that includes multiple references, interviews, meet and greets and home checks. They are an all-volunteer, foster based rescue, and 100% of donations received goes directly into helping the animals. I was so impressed with them, I am now a volunteer with One Love.
