ABOUT DANNY & RON’S RESCUE
Danny & Ron’s Rescue is unlike other rescue organizations. Because an abused or neglected dog can only recover and learn to trust in a loving home, Danny & Ron have turned their own house into the ultimate safe haven. There, they personally care of injured and abused animals until they are ready for adoption. Each dog receives a wellness check from the veterinarian and is then spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, groomed and loved. Each dog is treated like part of a family, fed organic dog food from its own bowl and even allowed to sleep in the bed. The opportunity to live with humans in a real home environment prepares a dog for adoption and life with a loving family. The Rescue does not charge a pre-set adoption fee and relies on affordable donations from the adopter. Since the Rescue was established in 2005, Danny & Ron have adopted more than 11,500 dogs. The movie “Life in the Doghouse” tells the amazing story of Danny & Ron and their work with the Rescue.
