Review for D & R Rescue Inc, Paris, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have adopted Toby from D and R Rescue Inc, in the spring of 2013. We had looked online at for the just right dog for us. We had some specific requirements and needed a breed that wouldn't aggravate our son's allergies. Our son was also a little hesitant around aggressive dogs. We saw some dogs on Petfinder and learned they would be at Petsmart in Zionsville for an adoption weekend.

We met Karen at Petsmart and she got to know our family. Our children were 11 and 13. We were a calm household and Karen found a perfect match for us. At Petsmart, we also met a foster parent that works with Karen who lives locally. Karen asked us to e-mail her our wish list. I e-mailed her on Sunday and the following day she called us and said she had our dog. He was being fostered by the parent we met. Both Karen and the foster mom described Toby and felt he would blend with our family perfectly. He was a little shy and Karen thought he needed a young family who could pull him out of his shell.

Karen considered our needs and made a perfect recommendation. We had a chance to meet Toby and found our new family member! He has been a great joy. He was already crate trained and was a year old, perfect for our circumstance.

I appreciate that Karen worked to find a dog that would fit well with our family. Karen and Toby's foster mom took the time to educate and guide us as new dog owners. Toby transitioned easily into our home.

I strongly recommend adopting a pet through D and R Rescue. Karen helps to ensure an appropriate and successful pet placement.

Thank you Karen!
