About Our Rescue Group:

The Houston Area Doberman Rescue, Inc. (HADR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and has NO paid volunteers; donations made to HADR may therefore be tax deductible ľ please consult your tax advisor. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and place Doberman Pinschers in responsible and caring homes in addition to providing a resource for public education on the breed and responsible dog ownership.

We serve as advocates for Doberman Pinschers who have become lost, abandoned, or abused. We vaccinate, microchip, spay/neuter, and treat heartworms before the dogs are placed in new homes. Only dogs of stable temperament and reasonable health are placed through our program. We maintain vet records and keep the dogs current on a regimen of heartworm preventative while they are in our program. We look for the right home for each dog. Matches are made based upon the needs of the individual adoptive homes and the temperament of the dog.

Come Meet our Pets:

All our dogs are kept in foster homes. Once your application is approved, we will make arrangements for your family to meet the dog of your choice.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is quite simple. The first thing you need to do is read through our adoption policies page here then fill out our Adoption Application. At the bottom of this page you will find a submission link that states you have read and understand our policies regarding adoptions. If you agree to our policies click on the link that says "I understand your policies and would like to submit an application!". Doing so will take you to the Adoption Application page. Once there, complete the form and please make sure to click "Submit" at the bottom of the form! If you would rather fill our a paper version of the application, click here & mail or fax it to us: HADR 5925 Kirby, Suite E #755 Houston, Texas 77005.

If you have trouble at our website, you may also email your completed application to shammacal@hotmail.com

After we receive your application, we will check your references. Please make sure all contact information for your references is up to date. Start thinking of a time your family will be together so we may send a HADR representative to complete the home visit. The home visit is not to critique your home. We need to see the environment where the dog will live. It gives us a chance to answer your questions. Upon completion of the home visit and reference check, HADR will decide whether or not we can place a Doberman in your home. Remember, we are extremely selective in choosing our adopters. We invest time, effort, money, and most importantly LOVE and AFFECTION in these dogs.

If you are approved, we will begin introducing you to the dogs we have in foster homes. Please see Available Dogs for information on our current dogs. We also have some great pictures and stories about the dogs that have been adopted, see Success Stories. The adoption process involves some time and effort, but be patient....we want to ensure that we match you with the right dog. Once a match has been made, we will execute the Adoption Contract, and collect the adoption fee. The fee is $250 for dogs under 8 years old and $150 for dogs 8+ years old.

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.
