Devin is a young and energetic Doberman who was rescued from an irresponsible "owner" in LA, who failed to be his "guardian." He was kept outside without any shelter and human companionship, so residents in the neighborhood scraped together enough money to buy Devin from his owner and handed him over to us. Devin is a good boy, but we have discovered that he has cryptorchidism (one testicle did not drop), which is complicated by a blood disorder called Von Willebrand's disease (similar to human hemophilia). Devin's neuter has now become a costly and more serious surgical procedure with an estimated cost of $3,500- 4,000, depending on what is discovered during surgery and the first 24-hours of his recovery. Devin needs your help so that he can get his surgery and move onward towards a wonderful life with his future family. If you would like to donate to Devin's upcoming procedure, please send your donations, and we will follow up with your/their tax contribution receipt

Note: Certain weekends are exceptions, so please call the store before your visit. Please note that Saturday adoptions are held INSIDE the store in case of rain or inclement weather.
All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:
- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.
- You will be asked to submit to a "house-check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.
- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption contract agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.
- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.
- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.
- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
