Our family recently adopted Ali, an english pointer. When I searched on pet finder I saw a picture of Ali read she was young and filled out the paper work right away. After being accepted to adopt Ali I made arrangements with Karen to meet. Karen couldn't have been nicer. I was blown away by all the food, treats, information on dog care, and toys. When I meet Ali she was only 13 weeks old but I could tell she was already attached to Karen, which speaks to the care she gave Ali under her care.
Ali is smart and easily trainable, house training has been very easy, she wants to relieve herself outside! Karen knows what she is doing, adopting Ali was a great experience.

I had been searching for a few weeks for a puppy or young dog, with no luck. I decided to browse petfinder and found a few listings for Boxer mix puppies. I immediately requested an application and got a prompt and friendly response. Even though the puppy I had originally applied for had been adopted, Karen let me know that there was still one in the litter that was available. She answered all of my questions and was great to work with overall. I couldn't say enough great things about D and R Rescue.

What can I say but I love Karen she has allowed me to adopt 4 dogs now and everyone of them have been a blessing to my home. Karen is very careful and really cares to find good quality lifetime homes for her dogs. I always keep her up to date with pictures of my fur babies so she knows they are doing well and happy. My dogs are my children and I am so blessed to know Karen and so grateful to her for allowing me to adopt Abigail, Max, Skip and now Kit E. I can not thank her enough.

It was our first time adopting and we had a really good experience. Karen was very nice and answered all our questions right away. Since we had to wait for about a month because the puppy was still very young she sent us pictures so we could see her. We adopted a wonderful, healthy and happy beagle puppy (Lucy). We were given a lot of information and helpful tips on getting a new puppy, medical records and she came with a bagful of toys, treats and food! It was a very easy process!
Thank you D&R Rescue!

Working with D&R has been wonderful. We adopted Gemma a little over two weeks ago and she is a wonderful fit with our family. Karen was very helpful with details working up to the adoption and has staying in contact with us afterwards. Gem came fully vetted, microchipped, spayed, and in great health as confirmed by our own veterinarian. She also came with a large bag of treats and toys along with a lot of good information especially if someone were a first time dog owner. We love her to pieces and are so glad we found her and D&R.

This is the 2nd dog we have rescued through D & R Rescue. It was a completely positive experience. Karen was very knowledgeable about how to transition a puppy into our home with an older dog and cat. Maddie has adjusted very well. We recieved a collar, leash, food, treats, dog chews, toys and even a hand crocheted coat for our little Maddie. I have contacted Karen in the past few months with questions and she always gets back to us quickly. This is a great place to rescue from. They care about every step of the process and have tons of experience to share with new owners.
I highly recommend this recipe to anyone wanting a great experience. I not only received a wonderful pet but gained a great friend and mentor.

My girlfriend and I had been looking around for a dog for a while when we met Rey. She melted our hearts when we first met her and has made our lives so much better since. We couldn't imagine life without her now because of all the joy she brings us.

My family was in search of a small breed, younger dog to adopt. I found sweet little Trixie (her previous name was Dilly :-)) on PetFinder and immediately sent D&R Rescue a message. I was blown away by their response time and clear desire to properly make a match between a rescued dog and a family. Karen was amazing, she answered several questions for me, quickly processed our application and met us a day earlier than what we originally discussed.

I highly recommend D&R Rescue, every interaction has been delightful and our family couldn't be happier with our newest addition!

D & R was the perfect place to find the perfect pet for our mother. Staff was experienced, understanding, patient and very knowledgeable. We had been trying for some time to rescue a dog for our elderly mother (86) and so many places would not even consider it. To find a person so understanding of our needs was not only luck, but extraordinary pleasure. D & R is my go to place first when looking for rescues. The process was easy, happy and fast. Our new dog and mother are ecstatic and it was a match made in heaven.
