I am interested in volunteering in some capacity. Phone calls? Searching Petfinder?
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs as an adult, with vet records in your own name (not parents' names)?
I just lost my labradoodle to cancer. He was a rescue I adopted when he was 15 months old. He had been a breeding dog with little human contact and evolved from being afraid of his own shadow to a magnificent, gentle giant and an amazing companion. My previous dog was a cockapoo rescue (age unknown) who was as smart as a whip, gentle and sweet.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I'm partial to poodle mixes because of their intelligence and personalities.
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?
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I was involved with Catnippers, a Los Angeles TNR offshoot of Best Friends. We would hold a clinic once a month to neuter feral cats.
Sharon, if you are interested in adopting, here is information for you on that. A link to our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES to make sure that you understand and meet our adoption criteria. The application is at the top of any page. It is a good idea to get one on file.
Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section. When looking at the pictures, notice that 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 of the foster. If there is an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, an e-mail can be sent to: email@example.com stating that there is an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).
