We Welcome You to Our Website
Doberman Rescue League, Inc. started out in 1977, as a non-profit corporation
comprised of volunteers who are willing to give their time, expertise and their homes
to help place Dobes where they will be cared for and LOVED.
The League was formed to combat the population explosion in Doberman Pinschers. We
provide humane treatment for lost, abandoned, abused and surrendered Dobes
in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami, Florida area.
Our main goals are to protect Dobermans already here, prevent further overbreeding and
educate any Doberman owner who requests it.
Rescue provides medical care for all Dobes we take in, including all inoculations needed;
we screen for parasites and heartworm. All 'Rescue dogs' are spayed or neutered and
tattooed for identification purposes using a DRL prefix and log number, prior to placement.
In order to provide veterinary care, and feed our 'Rescue kids' we depend on donations,
and are often seen at public functions in a fundraising and educational capacity.
Our adoption area covers Ft. Lauderdale and Miami (please see our link page for a Rescue in your area.)
For all applicants interested in adopting, an application must be filled out.
All applicants will be carefully screened. No dog will be placed without a home
visit. We DO NOT ship dogs to other states and we DO NOT place guard
or attack dogs.
We recommend Obedience training of the Dobermans, as they are active,
responsive and highly intelligent dogs. This breed is not for
everyone. The only reason to adopt one of these dogs is to make them a member of your family.
