I’m married and have 2 grown children not living at home. I have 3 indoor cats and also foster cats/kittens for Dakin Humane Society in Springfield, Ma. I have owned a pet sitting and dog walking business for 19 years. My husband is a police officer in Longmeadow, Ma.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
We just lost our beautiful Labradoodle, Lucy, 5 days ago to a blood disorder. She was 12 years old and my best friend. She went to work with me every day and we also were a Therapy Dog team and visited a local nursing home several times a month.
We have 2 Ragdoll cats, Murphy & Bailey, and another cat named Stella who we were fostering and she has a heart condition which deemed her unadoptable, so we chose to keep her.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
My Lucy was a Labradoodle and her personality and temperament was just perfect! Plus her activity level made her an ideal walking companion with my job.
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?
I volunteer in the kitten ICU weekly at Dakin Humane Society. I also foster cats/kittens in my home.

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. There is a link to our adoption guidelines which include that you must have owned a dog before and supply a vet for reference. 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.
