"Thanks for your email. We won’t be putting in an application until our old girl Sadie passes. She is not well snd deserves our full attention and care. We lost our doodle about 6 months ago from cancer and shortly after Sadie fell ill, though…"
We are dog lovers with a long history rescuing dogs.We anticipate losing our second dog (we always had two) in the coming year and will want to get another rescue when that happens. We don't want to stress her while she lives our her final months so will want to wait until she passes.
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)?
Yes, our Sadie who we rescued when she was one year old. We will lose her in the coming year.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We lost our Labra (or golden doodle -the vet never said definitively) some months back to cancer. We had our Simba, a goofy, fun and sweet full sized labra or golden doodle who we rescued between his 1 and 2 year birthdays. We adored him bt lost him to cancer this year at age 9, way too young.
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?
Not at this time. We will be looking to adopt another in the coming year.
I totally admire that. We wouldn’t adopt to you right now either. We respect our seniors. What you could do is put your app in with the notation that you will be waiting until Sadie passes. You could then send an email to the adoption coordinator when you are ready. There is absolutely no obligation with an application.
Welcome to the DRC website.Your photos are wonderful. 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.
