We have six children but only our thirteen year old is still at home and he would love to take care of a dog (with our help). We lost our last dog almost 10 years ago at age 17 and are hoping to adopt.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We currently have a very old and friendly cat (and dog lover) who got along famously with our last dog (a friendly adoptee who lived to age 17)
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We have friends and relatives with doodles and they are friendly and fun, active and gentle -- perfect for our family, especially our 13-year-old son.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
I did not know that but it's fine-our last dog shed and it was not an issue
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Yes and we have no young children (or service work!)
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
No thank you

Welcome to the DRC website.
Here is a ‘must read’ article with information you should know before you apply to adopt a doodle: http://doodlerescue.org/forum/topics/information-for-anyone-interested-in-adopting-a-doodle. It includes a link to our adoption guidelines. Please read them before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. The application itself is at the top of any page, but here is a link: http://doodlerescue.org/page/adoption-application-2. The application doesn’t obligate you in any way but it opens the lines of communication with the adoption coordinator. Quite often, a new dog who comes into the program is adopted before he/she is ever listed, because our adoption coordinator is aware of a good approved applicant who would be a good match for that dog. However once you have an approved application on file, if you see a dog under the DRC’s care that you feel would be a good fit for your family, an e-mail can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org stating that there is an application on file and you would like to be considered for (name of dog).
When looking at the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section, the two letters in front of the dog’s name mean the state they are being fostered in. While the DRC allows out of state applicants, they cannot transport the rescues and will not let them fly, so adopters need to be within driving distance to pick the dog up.
