THIS IS MY BELOVED HOLLY. I HAD NO CHILDREN SHE WAS MY FURRY CHILD WHOM I LOVED WITH ALL MY HEART. SHE WAS FLOWN IN FROM A KILL SHELTER AND I ADOPTED HER AS A TINY PUPPY. SHE WAS MY ANGEL AND STILL BREAKS MY HEART FOR ER LOSS. I KNOW SHE HAD THE…
I am an advocate to adopt/rescue. Also spay & neutor. I grew up in a home filled with love for recues including dogs and cats. I adopted Holly from Ramapo Valley in Oakland N.J. and used Dr. Deur as my vet. I now live in S.C. animal rights are the worst.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
We growing up loved our furry children who lived long lives. I adoped Holly from Ramapo Valley. Hoy was flown in from a kill shelter. She turned out to be a labadoodle. She was my child and I am devasted over her loss. My vet knows me well. Candy at McNeils in Pawleys Island, S.C. I have not adooped another yet. I did rescue 2 kittens during Hurricanes and raised them with a bottle.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I saw a blind labadoodle named Holly on a site and I regret not taking her. I could not find her on rescue site. Doesn't matter what breed of dog I save as long as they have a forever loved home. I am looking for a puppy because as a teacher of autist children I taught Holly to communicate by using her paw. She could tell me everything. It doesn't matter the age but I don't think if I take an older dog I could live with a loss so close to Hoy although I could take them all.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
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?
I live alone with my 2 rescue cats with a fenced yard.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I used to volunteer in N.J. but I just couldn't because it just broke my heart and I wanted to take them all. I got emotionally attached to them all.
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. Here is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and also supply a vet reference. Please read the guidelines before filling out an application to make sure that you meet them. http://doodlerescueinc.ning.com/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. 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 (either on the DRC Facebook page, doodlekisses.com home page or on our home page) 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 adoptable dogs here, Petfinder, or our FaceBook page, notice 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. We also have a FaceBook page where our fosters often post before the doodles are listed on PetFinder.
