We've always been a 2 doodle home and have recently lost one of our dogs to cancer. We're looking to rebuild our pack :) We've done some fostering and rescue volunteering in the past and have found it very rewarding. We'd like to honor our beloved Grover, by opening our home to a rescue in need of our love, care and security.
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)?
Grover was our 9 year old goldendoodle, who we recently lost. Scrappy is our 10 year old goldendoodle....she's beside herself with the loss of her "brother" She's a spunky, gentle and very sweet girl.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
We've been blessed with some incredible doodles, with our 2. They really are amazing. We love the temperament, personalities and intelligence. We're doodle lovers for life.
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?
We were fosters in the past for Oodles of Doodles. Had been volunteers for the Doodle Train also. I'm actually quite confused as to which one I was active in through Doodle Kisses, as the names have all changed? Life got busy and I didn't think it was fair to take on more than I could handle when my kids were younger, so we always had hoped to return to fostering and volunteering. When my Grover was ill, I did a lot of soul searching. I think this is the perfect time to put our love and energy into a rescue...so I'm starting fresh with plenty of desire and doodle devotion. I would be happy to help in any way I can....volunteering included. But very much would like to adopt too.

Thank you for the friend request, Mary. This is the original rescue that got started on doodlekisses. Oodles of Doodles happened when one of the DRC members tried to do her own rescue ideas and tried to use the DRC name - it was a mess.
Here is the information I post for new DRC members which should refresh and update you. Obviously you don't need to know about doodles, but the link to the adoption app is there. You can fill out the foster app and submit it and also write on the adoption app that you would like to foster.
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 also supply a vet reference. Please read the guidelines 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 (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 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.
