Rural Dog Rescue: what do users think?

Naomi Philhower '19: I have volunteered here on and off for the past 8 months and am truly impressed with the organization. They help save many at risk dogs from high-kill shelters and provide them with safe caring foster homes until they are adopted. The adoption events are always well handled to ensure the safety of both dogs and volunteers. I am looking forward to volunteering here again after the Covid-19 pandemic. In the future if I am able to adopt this would be the first organization I would look at for a pet, and I would highly recommend them to any individuals in DC, MD, or VA looking to adopt!

Kelsey Blend: This rescue is one of the best around. When they pull dogs from high kill shelters they don’t cherry pick like the majority of rescues do. The dogs are immediately vetted and evaluated for their needs. They are then treated for a wide range of issues including (but not limited to) heartworms, broken bones, ear infections, tick borne diseases, and skin infections. They are vaccinated, spayed and neutered, and started on heartworm and flea medication as well as given dentals and mass removal as needed. The rescue is foster based, giving these dogs experience in a home (potty training, basic commands), some of which have never seen until they have been given a second chance at living! If your looking for a dog that needs a loving home that hasn’t had the best life, Rural Dog does a excellent job of starting these dogs off on the right path of a healthy life.

Christine Roxborough: I adopted a wonderful dog 2 years ago from this rescue. They are wonderful people who devote their time and money to saving the dogs that are most likely to be euthanized. Their devotion and commitment to "the underdog" is inspiring and makes me want to do more to save the abused and neglected animals whose stories are heartwrenching. If I adopt another dog in the future, I will do it from them!

redbone lolita: Wanted to get my kids a dog at 25 dollars to far

John Erskine: The representative was very caring and eager to assist me with a dog I found in getting her a good home. Highly recommend!

Latonya Mitchell: Was looking for a new forever home for a friends dog but we found one. Rural Dog Rescue has a website that offers lots of information about their service and easy to navigate

Leslie Anderson: They had a lot of cute doggies and puppies for foster and adoption. If interested please visit their website.

Domenica Smolko: Very interesting site for collie lovers. Had multiple collies over the years am looking again. Found their application but have not heard back yet.

Kathryn Keefer: I cannot say enough amazing things about this company. They know what they are doing and do what is best for each and every collie and person involved. If you are looking for a collie make sure to inquire with them, and have patience knowing they will find you the BEST fit. If you need to re-home your baby for any reason they will be there to support you and make it as easy as they can for you.

Ana Guzman: They really care about collies

Selva Martin: Thanks to the Collie Rescue we have Cody and we enjoyed the company of Shep as well. We couldn’t be more grateful with this organization which brought so much joy to our lives. Thank You, Collie Rescie for all your hard work.

Homeward Trails Adoption Center: what do users think?

Harlow Arbiol: I had a really good experience adopting from Homeward Trails. My partner and I did the Tails Out program where we met a Labrador Retriever. She was the most kindest dog. I ever met and felt a instant connection with her. We decided to adopt her and it was very smooth. You can tell this shelter really cares about their dogs. Thank you so much for everything. Thank you Hannah. She was very helpful and professional; and even helped us during this Christmas Eve.

M B: Amazing to see HT has grown so much and over 20 yrs after adopting a Fayetteville dog have a People mag article appear in my news feed!! Dusty (Roads of WV) lived a very good life and we thanks HT so much for all their work. If I still lived in NoVA I would be a volunteer

carrie goeringer: This is the sweet girl you rescued for me. She went home with me 4 years ago. THANKS for all your work. 😘😻💕

Juergen S: Excellent experience. We adopted our second dog here and they were very good about making sure we were right for each other. The staff know the animals well, even the new ones and did a great job of giving us time with them. The program seems a little bulky, but everything runs smooth and is done well. We will be coming back when we are looking for another dog.

Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue: what do users think?

Jane Heaslip: We have adopted two dogs from MABCR. Two incredibly beautiful, even tempered dogs, adopted about ten years apart, first Mia, then Willow. The application and interview process are designed to match the correct dog with your lifestyle, needs, etc. Both times, Sarah has chosen the perfect dog for us. As we age, and our needs change, I would put complete trust in having MABCR match us with another dog in the future.

Dawn Barger: I adopted my sweet Gemma girl from MABCR over 9 years ago! The screening was professional and responsive. They did a fine job evaluating what my living conditions were, my family, lifestyle and other animals. I clearly understood this is the best for the potential dog so they could match me with my perfect partner. I was able to meet my girl and pick her up at a foster home in New Jersey. It was love at first sight and she has been happy and healthy ever since ! I will support the rescue for life into certainly adopt from them again!

Renia Gray: It’s been a year since we adopted our Kizzie! The whole process was an incredible experience, Sarah listened so carefully to the needs and wants our family and helped match us with such a sweet dog. Everyone in their organization was helpful and very knowledgeable about their dogs and how to help our family make sure we were Prepared. The day we went for our meet and greet to bring Kizzie home it was 4 degrees windy and snowing. Sarah and Skylar stood outside with us for over an hour as Kizzie decided if we were going to be the family for her . They have been supportive with further training and guiding us along the way. We just wish we had more room for more dogs. Given the opportunity we would absolutely adopt again from MABCR and recommend them to anyone wanting to open their home and hearts to a dog for their family! Update: Kizzie has been part of our family for over 2 years now! She has made such progress and we are so proud to have been selected to be her forever family! We can’t say enough about the process and time and effort everyone at MABCR, especially the volunteers who are so helpful. They love every dog and work tireless to make the best match for both dog and humans.

Rachelle Daigneault: UPDATE: We just added another dog from this organization to our family. Bear is a senior boy who needed a soft place to land. There is a reason we keep returning to the same rescue again and again. They are thorough, professional, and no-nonsense. It’s all about placing dogs in the right homes. Bear’s foster home took on a major project getting this abandoned dog unmatted and ready for a new home. Work the process. You won’t be disappointed. There’s a dog sitting next to me right now from MABCR. She is one of 3 dogs (and a cat) that have come to my family over the years from this organization. The process matches the right dogs to their forever families. I’m a fan.

Christina McNamara: My husband located MABCR when we were looking to adopt a border collie and we could not be happier. Sarah, Skylar and the volunteers are nothing short of wonderful. They are devoted to finding safe, loving homes for the dogs in their care. There are two MABCR rescue border collies currently sharing our home, and we have adopted two others over the years. MABCR carefully screens all applicants, including a home visit, to ensure the best possible outcome for the dogs.

Austin Wiles: Recently adopted a wonderful dog, Zoe, from MABCR, and loved the process every step of the way. Sarah (and everyone in the process! everyone cares so much about these dogs and were all very nice) was wonderful and told us everything about our new family member. She sat with us for 2 hours answering our questions while we were meeting our furry friend for the first time. We were told Zoe was very slow to warm up to people, so it was very important to us that Zoe trusted us and felt comfortable with us, and Sarah took the time to make sure that was the case.
