Georgia Doberman Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit, volunteer organization, dedicated to rescuing and re-homing abandoned or homeless Doberman Pinschers from shelters or owners who have surrendered them. By working with volunteers, foster homes, veterinarians and trainers, we are able to place these dogs in loving temporary homes for assessment and rehabilitation, and then into carefully screened forever homes. We are an educational resource for the Doberman owner, and provide information on responsible pet ownership, good nutrition, positive behavioral training and the importance of spaying and neutering pets.
Application - The application allows us to get to know your home and family situation and find the best match for you. We ask that you please also include photos of your home and if you rent, a letter from your landlord. We realize that our application is long, but it is designed to help us make the best match for you and your family. We try and review all applications within 48 hours. References - GDR will make the appropriate reference checks with veterinarians and if needed, personal references. All current pets in the home must be up to date on vaccinations, on heart worm preventative and spayed or neutered. Please be sure that you call your vet’s office and personal references and let them know that a GDR representative will be contacting them. Home Visit - The home visit is an important part of our adoption process as this is where we get to know you and your family better, see your lifestyle and get a feel for how our rescued Doberman would fit in with your family and other pets. Out of respect for our fosters, we do not schedule meet and greets until after home visits are complete. Board Review - GDR board members will review the above and hold a vote to approve or reject . We will notify applicants regardless of our decision. If you are approved, we will then complete the appropriate adoption paperwork and finalize the adoption. When possible, one of our board members will meet with adopters to finalize the adoption in person.
