This is "OAKLEY" She was a result of what Puppy Mills get away with it in our Country. She was owned by Bailey n Kelsey Thompson. AKA Remington Danes, of Arcadia Fl.
I offered to foster her through Big Dog Rescue in Fl. (7/15) After the puppy mill raid.
Oakley was around 2 years of age and had never been indoors. She with over 100 Danes had been kept in outdoor pens where they were mated and had liter after liter.
Oakley was special and adapted quickly to domestic life. She did not like the outdoors or rain. She loved the fact that she escaped her abuse.
Not long after agreeing to foster this precious girl, I realised that Big Dog Rescue was in unethical relations with the owners if the puppy mill.
Against everything that I have stood for in 12 years of Dane rescue, many threatening emails and calls from their board of directors, threatening legal action, I drove to Orlando and returned her to a representative they sent to meet me.
I have rescued many Danes in all kinds of conditions, this particular rescue, due to the outcome, will always and forever eat at my heart.

I fel in love with the ranch after adopting my dog in 2012. I have since volunteered a few times at the ranch and have felt so grateful each time. It's hard to beat hanging out with incredible dogs and getting to call it "volunteering"

I adopted my dog from Big Dog Ranch Rescue, and the entire adoption process was a joy! Our relationship with the ranch didn't end when we took our pup home, it continued to grow as they would follow up to see how the pup was doing in his new home. I have since volunteered at the ranch for the last 5 years and I truly admire the passion that all the staff and volunteers possess. They are making a big difference in saving lives and I'm excited that they will be expanding into their new facility soon. I've watched BDRR grow into an incredible organization and I'm proud to be a part of it.

Five years ago, I walked inside BDRR and my life was changed. My intent was to teach my son about the less fortunate and play with some puppies. Little did I know, how much it was to be a part of my life. Big Dog Ranch Rescue not only saves the lives of innocent dogs but also strives to make the community a better place. I have adopted 2 dogs, 1 hospice foster and fostered over a hundred dogs. The dogs are given the best care during their stay while waiting for a forever home. Big Dog Ranch Rescue is by far a leader in it's class. I can not recommend this rescue enough!

They provide desperately needed forever homes for homeless and abandoned dogs. This rescue saves thousands of unwanted dogs and puppies every year from high kill shelters and do their utmost to find them good homes where they will thrive. The staff is caring and the place is small but is spotless. They constantly have creative fundraisers and have a huge outreach of volunteers from all the surrounding communities.

My daughter, 10, and I started volunteering at BDRR about a year ago. We go once a week after school. It is a wonderful experience. Everyone who works there truly cares about every single dog there. I'm amazed at how they know all their names. They put us to work walking, bathing, cleaning. I truly enjoy doing this with my daughter. We are both so happy when a dog that we've been caring for is adopted.

I have been volunteering with Big Dog Ranch Rescue for several years, and I adopted several of my four-legged family members from BDRR. There is such a love and dedication to saving dogs and finding them wonderful homes. Big Dog Ranch Rescue goes above and beyond in its efforts to save as many dogs as possible, including dogs with significant injuries, heartworm disease and seniors. I cannot think of a better way to spend my time than helping this great organization save more lives.

Big Dog Ranch Rescue is just an amazing place. Dogs who find their way to the safety of the Ranch are very lucky. All dogs receive love, medical care, and a dedicated commitment from the Staff to find them a forever home! All dogs get the chance to romp and play with their friends in fenced pastures. If they need extra training, they get that, too! The rewards of spending time with the dogs, walking them, and loving them is truly a rewarding gift!
