Hi Spears, Until I got involved in rescue, I too wondered why it took so long. We are all volunteers which means while we devote time daily to the DRC, we also have jobs and families. A volunteer reads your application to make sure that you meet the qualifications/rules for adoption, They check references including your vet. Once that happens, there needs to be a dog that would be a good match for your family.
If you are interested in adoption be sure to read our DRC ADOPTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. http://doodlerescue.org/notes/DRC_ADOPTION_POLICIES_AND_PROCEDURES. If you haven’t already filled out an application, be sure to get one on file.

Check the OUR ADOPTABLE DOODLES section.! When you are 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 you need to be within driving distance of the foster. If you have an application on file and you see a dog under the DRC’s care, you can send an e-mail to: adoption@doodlerescuecollectiveinc.org stating that you have an application on file and would like to be considered for (name of dog).

Here are some additional ideas for finding a rescue doodle:
1. Here is an article on what a doodle really is: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/what-is-a-doodle
2. Click on the REGIONAL LISTINGS section which lists poodles and mixes from other organizations and shelters around the country -- click "Follow" right below where it says "Replies Are Closed For This Discussion" and you will get email notifications when new listings are added;
3. Here is a helpful article on how to find a doodle on Petfinder and in shelters: http://doodlerescue.org/group/isadoodleforyou/forum/topics/looks-like-a-doodle-to
4. PETFINDER (putting in all zip codes within your driving distance) as well as possible dog breeds that could be doodles starting with poodle which will include poodle mixes; Sometimes doodles are listed as terrier mixes;
5. GOOGLE in shelters and humane societies within your driving range. Check their sites often.
