You got questions? We have answers!


What are your rates?

We like to keep things simple so we charge a flat fee per dog, per night. No hidden fees! It is our privilege, and way of saying thank you, to also offer a discount to our military, first responders and teachers!

First Dog $60/night

Each additional dog $30/night

What’s your dropoff/pickup policy?

While we do try to be as flexible as possible between 8am and 9pm, we ask that you select a 30 minute drop-off and pickup window at time of booking so we can set that time aside specifically for your pet!

We also offer pickup/drop-off transportation services for a small fee if that option is of interest to you.


Why is a deposit required?

Simply put to guarantee your reservation. Especially during busy times, we get so many requests to book, that many pets wind up on the waitlist for space. If travel plans change but we unaware and are holding that spot open, other clients miss out and must search elsewhere for care. It is fully refundable 14+ days from your visit.

Once your deposit is received, you pet is confirmed!


What should we bring?

Please bring the following:

Proof of UP TO DATE vaccinations

Food/treats/bowls

Bed/Blanket & toys

Leash & Harness

Any medicine(s) if applicable


What if my pet gets ill while I am away?

We have a mobile vet that comes right to our property. Should your pet need medical care at any point during their stay we will make two phonecalls: the first to you to inform you of the situation and the second to our vet to have your pet be seen. If you are reasonably local to us, you can request that we take your pet to your vet.


Where did the name R2theRescue come from?

Our names are Rich and Rebecca. Though the years in true military fashion that somehow got shortened to R2. It stuck. Long ago we both knew that our goal was to open our own rescue and restoration ranch not just for animals but eventually opening the doors to wounded warriors as well. When we talked about it we realized there was that double "r" again. Through a discussion of mission and purpose, R2theRescue developed. Much like Clark Kent aka Superman came to Lois Lane's rescue, we want to come to the rescue of those in need. So there you have it - what's in our name.


Are you a rescue?

No we are not, yet! However our passion is founded in rescue work, doing whatever roles possible to ensure animals in need are able to move on to a new and happy life. So we are part of a larger team and are blessed to work with many 501c3 organizations whose mission is driven by rescue and placement. Our goal is to one day get there and be more involved on a daily basis saving those lives.


What made you add an overnight pet sitting piece to your efforts?

Simply put, we love animals. When we searched for pet sitting for our own animals we realized there was a real need we could fill here in western Loudoun County; providing services that are more "like home" than kennel boarding. We provide safety,security, a familial routine for pets and peace of mind for pet owners while they are away.


How are you different than a kennel?

First, we are a home based operation that is run just by the two of us, on our property, in a home environment. We are not professional vets, technicians or trainers. We have years of experience and put that into use to properly care for the animals in our keep. We offer one-on-one attention, play time, walks, and integration into an environment more like a home than a kennel.

We are small but our vision is big! In the months to come we will be expanding the play areas, facilities and our capabilities to make your pets stay even better!


What should we expect for our pet's visit?

First and foremost, to be treated with kindness and love, as if they were our own! We believe that every animal deserves individual attention, love, stimulation and their needs to be met fully. We are of a quality, not quantity, mindset to ensure the best experience for your pet!

Secondly, you will get daily updates and photos texted to you {unless you indicate otherwise} and we may even feature, with your permission, their photo on our Instagram feed for our followers.

Third, peace of mind that your pet is being well taken care of with not just basic needs met but play time, walks, belly rubs and even snuggles on the couch (if allowed!).
