They take amazing care of the pups and take the time to ensure you find the dogs that’s right for you and your family. We absolutely love our rescue & plan to adopt from there for a long time. Totally worth the 2 hour trip from Baltimore!

This place is FANTASTIC. They take such good care of these precious dogs and are very thorough with caretaking. We had an appointment with Dennis. He was awesome and had everything ready to go and plenty of options for us. We never felt pressured and they made sure we had as much time as we needed to make a decision. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone looking to adopt. Thank you SO much DVGRR!!

We adopted our Morgan at 11 months 11.5 years ago from DVGRR. Great experience then. Our Morgan crossed the rainbow bridge recently. We are going back tomorrow 8/18 to adopt two more. Preliminary research, reports, and discussions as we as DVGRR’S vetting of our property and experience have led us to our trip from Virginia to meet our hopeful new companions. Upon arrival at DVGRR, we were greeted by a team of associates who took us first to a large fenced grassy area to see how well our choice of a 2 year old male and female got along. The match was perfect. We then went to the adoption room to read and agree to the DVGRR terms and conditions. We page through professionally prepared 3 ring, tabbed binders with extensive reports, certificates, and licenses. The next stop was the DVGRR pet store to stock up on leashes, harnesses, food, and logo shirts and hats. All profits go to the rescue of more Golden Retrievers and Golden Doodles.

We paid an adoption fee that covered about 2/3 of the veterinary costs to bring each of our new companions to an excellent medical condition. That included spayer and neutering, all vaccinations and required shots, all of which were fully documented in our 3 ring binders for our own Vet to review.

We made a donation to cover those costs on 2 more rescues. We were amazed at the generosity of private donors who gave so much to help fund the long-term capability of DVGRR.

We are so grateful to Dennis. Karen, Alex, Kyle and all of the team who put this adoption process together as well as day to day staff and volunteers who do such a great job at making these adoptions such a wonderful experiences for the Goldens and new owners alike.

Absolutely terrible! They do not know how to take care of the dogs in anyway and the staff is just conpletely rude please do not waste time on this rescue, they are just animal killers!



Horrible place with rude and manipulative staff. The say they are doing what is in the best interest of the dog, but really they are only interested in profiting from adoption fees. I have many regrets dealing with this place, but I’ll learn from them and move on.

They took my dog Lady on the 10th of August and by the 16th they put her to sleep . They said she bit someone . they had to be mean to her . Because she was a Loving dog. You will paid for the wrong thing that you did . God will see to that.
