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

Rating: 5 stars  

We recently rescued a Cairn mix from a Humane Society in eastern Indiana. He lived with an elderly woman his entire 5 years and must have slept all day and night, awake only to go outside and to eat and didn't play with toys. We were searching all over the country for a female to keep him company. We found his twin in silver in a northern state but they wouldn't let us adopt her...only their state and one other. We found two more with similar restrictions, only 2 hours away, only 200 miles away. And of course we filed 4 other applications - one didn't even respond after requiring a $10 donation, 2 others waited to act on our application for 2 weeks until the dogs were adopted to someone else, and one said yes, and then decided since we didn't have a fence we were denied, we bought a fence and were "yes" again, then out of the blue she said she didn't feel "comfortable" letting us adopt and that was her final answer. We found Molly...what a face! Karen was a very pleasant, acted promptly and professionally on our application and approved us to adopt Molly the next day. She gave us the foster mom's number and we scheduled a meeting the next weekend. We all arrived about the same time and it was love at first sight. Molly and Mo got along very well from the start. It didn't take any time to fill out the paperwork and she was ours. What a great experience. The bag that had her vet records and our adoption papers and chip records also contained food, bowls, harness, leash, toys, kong, heartworm pill. What a generous surprise. Amy and Karen couldn't have been nicer. They asked for us to keep in touch and we did and sent pictures. Molly is teaching Mo how to play and Mo is teaching Molly how to take naps - a perfect match made in heaven -D&R Rescue heaven! Thank you so much.
