Review for Oodles of Doodles Inc, Jackson, NJ, USA
My involvement in Oodles of Doodles began about 3 years ago when I personally rescued a Labradoodle in my neighborhood needing a new home. Oodles of Doodles Rescue's first question to me was, "How can I support you to help the labradoodle?" Other rescues didn't even return my emails. The labradoodle found a wonderful home and the process was professional. As a former corporate recruiter myself I found their process in finding homes the same as the process I used to locate and place high powered executives. Now I am rescuing dogs from high kill shelters and finding homes for them under the Oodles of Doodles name. I am proud to be one of the members of volunteers to represent Oodles. Recently there was a pregnant mother dog in a pen with 2 other dogs. It was urgent to save the mother and no other rescue seemed to have stepped up to save this mother. Suddenly Oodles of Doodles said pull the dog...and she was saved. In the next few hours she began to have her 6 puppies. We all scrambled to get her to a safe place as it was the middle of the night. It is these URGENT times that Oodles of Doodles has proven over and over to be a wonderful rescue group that keeps on growing. We all feel that the dog comes first in all decisions that are made and somehow we will make it work. The Director has a wonderful attitude and is well known in the rescue community. Personally just this year, I rescued 40 dogs from high kill shelters in the south and shelters are pleased to call us now, knowing that we follow up with all placements and consider everyone involved in the rescue to be "part of the village" that saves each life.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
advertise , expand and educate the public on neutering / spaying, especially in the areas we are rescuing.
