How did you hear about Rescue Dogs and Cats NL?

We knew it was time to add another dog to our family for some months before we started looking. It wasn’t until we found Rescue Dogs and Cats NL on Facebook, and saw Joko on their page that we knew we weren’t looking for just any dog, we had been looking for Joko.

What was your overall experience like with Rescue Dogs and Cats NL?

From the moment we messaged them, they were prompt, kind, helpful, and easy to work with. They provided links to YouTube videos of Joko interacting with a volunteer and several photos. They took the time to answer my many, many questions and to listen to any reservations I had. See, we hadn’t adopted a rescue dog before. Our two pups were rescued as baby puppies from individuals.

After losing our oldest dog 3 years ago, we knew when it came time to add to our family, that it would be a rescue dog. One we could provide with patience, love, a warm and happy home, and plenty of outdoor time. Once we found ourselves thinking of Joko non-stop, we began moving forward with the interview process. We appreciated the thoroughness of the interview process, for everyone’s sake. Finally, Rescue Dogs and Cats NL arranged the transportation with zero hassle. It was the easiest, less stressful experience as one could have hoped.

How has your life changed since Joko joined your family?

Since Joko’s arrival, our family has felt truly whole again. She is the goofiest, sweetest, and smartest girl. Our toddler is smitten with her (the feeling is mutual), and our older dog, a 10-year-old heeler mix, is getting along with her as if she’s been a part of the family since the beginning.

We’ve been working with a local dog trainer to boost her confidence and help us get in sync with one another. Since then, each day is better than the last.

We cannot thank everyone with Rescue Dogs and Cats NL enough for bringing Joko into our lives. If you are looking to expand your family with a furry family member, Rescue Dogs and Cats NL is your gem!
