Welcome!

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.

Hi, I’m Mouse and I’m 5 years old. I’m a little nervous so these wonderful guys here at LDR have placed me in this fab foster home. I’d like to find a home of my home own and I don’t mind sharing the human’s with other dogs but it needs to be an adult only home.

Reuben

Reuben

Hi, I’m Reuben and I’m a lean, clean, racing machine! I came to live here from Poland with my family but they went back there and left me behind so I’m living with Auntie Paula at the moment. She said I need to beef up a bit! I’m learning as much as I can from her other dogs whilst I’m here and she’s learning more about what kind of family I’m going to be a good fit for. I can’t wait to find my new family!

Adoption Process

Step 1 – Please complete and return an Adoption Application.  On receipt we will contact you to discuss the content of your form and the profile of the dog we feel would be best suited to your lifestyle.

Step 2 – We will try to match prospective adopters with one of the Dobes in our care.  If we think we have matched your profile with one of our Dobes, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.  All members of the family and any other pets should be present at this meeting to ensure you can all get along. 

Step 3 – Adoption Day!  When our rehoming officer and matched dog have visited with you at home and both you and the rescue are happy to proceed with the adoption, we complete all of the paperwork and you are officially a Dobermann Owner! 

All of the Lincs Dobermann Rescue dogs are rehomed with an information pack containing details of their vaccinations, worming, microchip details, adoption contract, 4 weeks free insurance from PetPlan and we are always available to offer advice and support to guide you through your first few weeks.

Step 4 – Our rehoming officer will call after adoption to make sure that your Dobe is settling into their new routine and that everything is working out well.  We are always available to you for advice and guidance and of course, we LOVE receiving photos of our Dobies in their happy new homes.
