DDR was founded in Moon Township, PA in 2006. Since then, DDR has grown to cover the entire north eastern US. DDR was established on the idea of helping Dobermans in need and since then have expanded our help to include the Miniature Pinscher breed as well.
We are a 501(c)(3), Not For Profit Organization and a corporation in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania composed solely of volunteers that functions solely on donations, fundraising efforts and volunteers.
Funds are used to offset the costs of rescuing and re-homing the dogs that enter our rescue. There are various costs involved with each dog that is rescued. Some of these costs include shelter fees, veterinary care, medications and equipment.
DDR receives Dobermans and Miniature Pinschers from shelters as well as private owners. Some rescued dogs come into rescue in poor health or suffering from the affects of neglect and/or abuse. Each dog receives a vet exam, necessary vaccines and medicines, a micro chip, a heart worm test (heart worm treatment if found to be positive) and are spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
DDR is run solely by unpaid volunteers who devote time and energy because of their love for these majestic breeds. Our volunteers do this in addition to having families, jobs and dogs of our own. Our only reward is knowing we have made a positive difference in the lives of the dogs that come into our rescue program.
There is a screening process for adoptive homes. Each potential adopter must complete an adoption application, agree to a home visit and sign an adoption contract. We also require an adoption fee to help defray costs incurred while the rescued dog is in our care. Volunteers remain in contact with our adoptive homes for the rescued dog's entire life. We are always here to provide assistance if needed.
Distinguished Dobermans Rescue, Inc. strives to help Dobermans and Miniature Pinschers in need. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.
That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
