I am looking to adopt a rescue doodle.
I am an active 71 yr old, recently retired. I lost my sweet goldendoodle Montana a few months ago and I am ready to rescue one of these sweet dogs and give him/her a forever home.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
I am dogless at the moment, but have always had a dog in my life. My last boy was a Goldendoodle who I raised from a puppy. He and I were certified with Pet Partners Therapy Program. We worked in assisted living facilities and hospitals. I hope to be able to continue this type of volunteering with my new love.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
I love Doodles. They are a special breed and will always be my first and only choice for my next dog.
Have you read our adoption policies?
Yes, I have.
Are you aware that many doodles are not allergy friendly and that many of them do shed?
Yes, I am aware
Are you aware that we do not adopt to homes with children under 10, and that we do not adopt dogs for service work?
There are no children in my home.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
I hope to be volunteering here in Bradenton with Nate's Honor Animal Rescue.
Yes, I would be interested in volunteering or fostering.

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: 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 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.
