WHO WE ARE
Midwest Doberman Rescue of St. Louis is a not-for-profit (501(c)3) operating under Purebred Dog Rescue of S t. Louis, an all volunteer organization. We do not have a shelter or kennels, rather we take dogs into "foster care".
Our mission is to rescue and rehome Dobermans in the St. Louis and surrounding areas, no matter what color or medical condition may exist, to the best of our abilities.
Our first priority are the Dobermans who are in pounds, shelters or humane societies who have no other options and will be euthanized if we don't take them. Our second priority is helping people who have inherited a dog from a relative who has passed away or who because of circumstances beyond their control are no longer able to care for their Dobermans. Our last priority are owner surrenders. Our preference is to help you place your own dog. We will list your dog on our web site and prescreen all applicants prior to giving them your phone number. The transition from your home to a new home will be easier on the dog if they don't have to go into foster care first.
We want every Doberman to be able to live out his/her natural life in a loving home. We want every adoption to be a happy, permanent placement. Each Doberman available for adoption is screened as carefully as possible. The simple fact is that not all dogs are appropriate for certain environments. Some dogs have specific temperaments and needs that not everyone can provide. You are asked to fill out an application before you meet our Dobermans so we can fit the right dog with your family.
Our adoption fees are between $250.00 and $350.00. The adoption fee includes a health examination, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm test and treatment if necessary, fecal test and worming, rabies, DHLPP and Bordetella vaccinations. All dogs are required to be on heartworm prevention year round. Very often Dobermans come into rescue and need additional medical care which is provided as well, this can cause the adoption fee to vary. On the occasion that we are aware of ongoing medical issues, we make it our policy to disclose this information to any potential adopters.
Our contract stipulates that if for any reason you cannot keep your adopted friend, you (legally) must contact Doberman Rescue and we have the option to accept or decline the dog back into our program.
