Who We Are and What We Do
My goal is to place unwanted, abandoned Doberman Pinchers in suitable homes. I am not paid for my time and receive only minimal compensation for expenses directly related to veterinary care. I receive animals from various sources, such as people who are moving, people who cannot afford to keep their pets any longer, pets that have been abandoned, kennels going out of business, and from cruelty cases that have been reported to Animal Control. All of the animals are immediately taken to the veterinarian for a comprehensive examination.
All animals are tested for heartworms. If they are heartworm negative, they are given their first series of distemper vaccinations and rabies shots. (It is assumed that the animals have never been given shots.) They are treated for any illnesses that they are diagnosed with. If the animals are well, they are spayed or neutered immediately and then placed in foster care so that their temperament can be monitored. The animals are then put up for adoption.
Potential owners are screened very thoroughly. They are required to give a veterinarian's reference as well as pertinent information as to the dog's living conditions. I then call the veterinarian to confirm that the potential owners have maintained a responsible care program with previous pets. I then visit the new owner's home to determine if adequate space and shelter (no chains or small pens) are available for the dog. Owners must have a fenced area for the dog to exercise in. Unless there are special circumstances, the dog must be a house dog.
There is an adoption contract which includes a number of stipulations as to the expected care of future adoptees. A nominal adoption fee is requested to cover those veterinary expenses for which I am not compensated.
If you know of anyone interested in adopting a purebred, altered, vaccinated Doberman Pinscher, please contact me.
