Finding the Perfect Dobermann to Join Your Family Can Be Easy, But There’s Lots to Consider!
Adoption is about placing the right dog in the right home and is of paramount importance to us. We don’t operate a ‘first come, first served’ policy and sometimes the right home for a particular rescue Dobermann takes a while to find.
We only accept dogs from UK dog pounds or homes and we only place dogs with adopters within the UK mainland. We don’t take dogs in or place them overseas, including Ireland.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long does the process take?
The length of time it takes for someone to apply to adopt and have a new family member is variable. It all depends whether we have a dog in our care who we feel is a good match for your family. If that’s the case, it can be as quick as 1-2 weeks. If not, we’ll add you to our wait list and we’ll be in touch as soon as we think we have a match for you.
How Much Does Adopting Cost?
Our adoption donations are non-negotiable and non-refundable and they vary from £200 for dogs over 5 years of age on a sliding scale to a max of £400 for puppies under 6 months of age. The average is around £300 and we also ask for a donation towards the fuel costs for the volunteer who will bring your dog to your home.
What Is the Difference Between Adopting and Fostering?
Adoption is permanent. When you adopt a dog you become the dog’s owner and are responsible for all of their care and vet bills. If you are unable to care for your dog for any reason it must be returned to the rescue. This is part of our adoption contract.
Foster homes are temporary. When you foster a dog they are owned by Lincs Dobermann Rescue until such times as we choose a home for them. All of the expenses for their care are paid for by Lincs Rescue.
Can I take A Pet Home straight away?
No. We do not allow members of the public or potential adopters to ‘view’ dogs at our kennels. Often our dogs are in foster care in volunteer’s homes and this is not possible. When you apply to adopt a dog we will match you to the dog we feel most suited to your circumstances and family and we’ll discuss that with you. When the time is right, our rehoming volunteer and the dog will visit you at home to ensure a smooth transition. If for any reason it doesn’t work out. The dog will leave with the rehoming volunteer.
