Review for D & R Rescue Inc, Paris, IL, USA
We lost both of our dogs within the past year and after only a few days without a dog the loneliness and sadness of not having a dog in the house was too much. So I got on Petfinder.com to find a dog. After an extensive search I found the profile of a dog that sounded perfect for us. I sent a message to request more information about the dog. In less than 12 hours Karen White replied to my questions and sent an application when I asked. Karen was so prompt communicating with us, answering questions and coordinating a meeting. The attention Karen gave to us was truly an unexpected surprise. Less than 48 hours from my initial request for information we met Karen and the dog we wanted to adopt. And we adopted that dog, the sweetest dog, Lucy. A new collar and leash were provided by the D & R Rescue, as well as some toys, treats, and poop bags. We didn't expect that. Lucy is already fitting in with our family, almost as if she's been here with us all along. What I love about this particular rescue organization, besides the excellent communication and coordination, is that the dog we got was in a foster home and they could tell us so much about the dog. This really helped us to know Lucy was the dog for us. We are so grateful to have this wonderful dog in our home. Thank you D & R Rescue!
