Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Most of the Dobermans we rescue come from shelters or animal control facilities. A smaller percentage are turned over to us by owners who for a variety of reasons, are no longer able or willing to care for them. Some come to us because of the owner's death, divorce, loss of job and/or home, and for many other reasons which are NOT the fault of the dog. DRI WILL NOT take in ANY human aggressive dogs into our program under any circumstance. We have a very strict policy regarding this!!!
All rescued Dobermans are up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, spayed/neutered, and evaluated to the best of our ability before placement. We attempt to evaluate their temperaments and work on basic obedience and manners. We attempt to place each Doberman into the most well suited home based on the individual dog. We consider the dog's reaction to other dogs, cats, and children.
We do not require a fenced yard but its is very much preferred for not only the dogs exercise but also for safety reasons.
We strongly recommend that new owners use a monthly wormer that includes heartworm protection. We have had rescue dogs that were heartworm positive and it is very serious and dangerous also treatment is very expensive.
DRI and its volunteers are very compassionate about our dogs and our rescue. This is our life! We take adoptions very seriously and expect all prospective adopters to do the same. Our only *payment* is knowing we helped a homeless Doberman find its forever home. We want our dogs to go to only the best homes where they will be loved and well taken care of FOREVER. Please consider your present and future family plans before even considering adoption.
We are a Doberman Pinscher Rescue Organization. We are a nonprofit group that relies solely on donations and fund-raising activities for its income.
***After completing an adoption application and submitting it please contact us via email or phone to make sure we have recieved it properly if you have not heard from us within 24 hrs.
If the adoption does not work out for any reason, the adoptive home is required to contact Doberman Rescue Inc. and return the Doberman to DRI! NO EXCEPTIONS!
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
