"Maybe I'm not looking correctly. But, when I go to your page there is just 3 or 4 and it usually says their adoption is pending. I will go to the facebook page now. But, how are you saying to look in Florida? Thanks!"
"Hi Gail, DRC often has dogs available in FL. Keep your eye on our listings as well as our FB pages; if you see a dog who seems like he/she might be a good fit, be sure to email our adoption coordinator and ask to have your application…"
We are searching for a young dog who wants a "forever home". We travel to Florida for the winters and live in RI during the summer. Would like a small dog, doesn't matter what gender.... We promise to love him or her always and make sure it will never suffer! We can travel down to NJ or up to Maine while in RI.. We leave for Florida mid November and can pick up along the way... We would appreciate any help and we have already submitted our adoption papers. Thanks, GailSee More
We are semi retired. Spend our winters in Florida and spring/fall up north.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
Our old baby died 3 weeks ago. He was 11 and had gone blind 3 yes ago. We adopted him when he was 10 months old. He was a very needy boy with medical problems right upnto the end. We loved him and he loved us... And now its time to find someone new.☺
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We started researching them 3 yrs ago. But last year we stopped because our pup was having problems and we wanted to be with him. Doodles are very loving, happy, dogs. No matter who we asked.... We wete told they were the best that they ever had and they had dogs there whole life.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Not at this time. However, I would help out.

Hi, Gail. I hope the information I gave you below is helpful in finding the next dog of your dreams. I am not familiar with The East, but here in California there are so many small poodle mixes in shelters that is just breaks my heart. We simply can't save them all. Do put the shelters within driving distance in your bookmark section on your computer and check them very often.
Welcome to the DRC website. I am so sorry for your loss.
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: email@example.com 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.
